Ace of Pentacles :: Wild Unknown Tarot
Creator’s keywords: prosperous beginnings

We have reached the introduction to the suit of pentacles! As with all aces, the Ace of Pentacles is a distillation of the pentacles realm. Pentacles are associated with the earth element; the tangible realm, physicality, money, homes and work. The Ace contains all of the potential of this element.

In the Wild Unknown, the Ace of Pentacles is a tree stump with a bright orange and yellow center. These are the colors of the substantial, material realm. This ace is solid and sturdy, sporting several branches growing in different directions. The potential of these branches is ready to fully unfold, and we’ll see that process in the numbered cards.

This deck offers “prosperous beginnings” as the key phrase for this card. The Ace of Pentacles reminds us that growth comes when we are consistent, practical, and willing to commit to the nitty-gritty aspects of creation. Good things can blossom if we come up with a plan and take a grounded approach.

In a reading, this card can ask you to activate your resources, both internal and external. Where are you right now, and what do you want to build from here? Every moment gives you the opportunity for a new beginning. Get comfortable with where you are, while having faith that you are progressing. As you take your next steps, do so with trust.
