In this series, I’ll be going through the cards of the Wild Unknown Tarot deck one by one. As the box of the deck states, there are no rights or wrongs. These are simply my interpretations of the tarot card meanings, drawn from observing and spending time with the images. Click here for a directory of all the posts in this series.

 

Son of Pentacles :: Wild Unknown Tarot
Creator’s keywords: loyal, determined

The Son of Pentacles leans into the card, pressing forward slowly but surely. An orange crescent moon frames a pentacle above him. The background is dark, but lightens where he gazes.

The Son of Pentacles is not one to act with great haste or passion. He is purposeful and careful in all that he does. Once he has decided to move in a given direction, that is simply where he goes. He sticks the course and slugs through the mud to reach his goals. He doesn’t always trust easily, but if someone does earn his trust, he stands by them without fail.

On the positive side, this attention to detail can be essential. The Son of Pentacles is thorough and has unparalleled determination to finish what he starts. On the negative side, he can fall prone to tunnel vision.

Unlike the Daughter of Pentacles, who looked out with a straightforward gaze, the Son of Pentacles is looking down at his chosen path. He is so resolute in his endeavors that he may forget to look up and assess his current surroundings. He may have a difficult time with changes and flexibility.

In a reading, court cards often represent people, personalities, or approaches to life. This card asks you to consider how you’ve been approaching a given situation. You may need to call upon your work ethic, your willingness to assess reality and act accordingly. If you want concrete results, you’ve got to take useful action. Just make sure you’re looking not obsessing with tiny details to the detriment of seeing the big picture.
