Pentacles

Attaining Abundance

Pentacles are the suit of material possessions, career, and bodily health.  They signify the grounding need for home, hearth, and family.  Associated with the element of earth, pentacles allude to matters of business and money, property, and transactions, reminding us to be aware of both out innate generosity and our occasional greed.

In a deck of playing cards, Pentacles correspond to Diamonds.
