King of Pentacles
The King of Pentacles has been coming up quite a bit in readings and draws I have been doing both for myself and other people recently.
Pentacles are representative elementally of Earth and portray material connections and occurrences. The coins that are often seen in pictorial representations of Pentacles can be an indicator of money or other material wealth. What then does the King depict:
The King has obviously reached a pinnacle of achievement reaching this stately place in life. Yesterday at the start of the day I drew the card Temperance and then at the end of the day I drew from a completely different deck the Temperance Card Again coupled with the King of Pentacles. This placing of these two cards is quite interesting, being equanimous in order to reach a stately position perhaps? Or perhaps being free of judgment in order to generate a kingly wealth.
Bridget of Biddy Tarot says:
“The King of Pentacles is a card of worldly success, ultimate fulfilment, material satisfaction, and high ambition. The King sits upon a throne decorated with carvings of bulls and vines and his robe is covered with embroidered grapevines rich with fruit. He appears very regal and sophisticated. At his feet and all around him are vines, flowers, and plants of all sorts, representing the highest attainment of material success. In his right hand, he holds the sceptre of his power and in his left he holds a golden coin, symbolic of his material influence.” For more clarification on the King of Pentacles from Bridget see this interesting post
My feeling is that drawing the same card on the same day at a different time and from a completely different Tarot deck are pretty significant. Temperance is something that has great significance for me and also the notion of having kingly material wealth is very far from my current position though would be something that I very much desire.
