Tarot Card of the Week: King of Pentacles

King of PentaclesTarot Card of the Week: Apr 17 – Apr 23, 2017

King of Pentacles

This week I present you with one of my favorites cards in the Mythic Tarot Deck, the King of Pentacles. The card tells the story of King Midas, who could turn everything he touched into pure gold.

He’d done a favor for the Goddess Dionysus, and she granted him any wish he wanted. Without thinking, he asked that everything he touches turn to gold. Unfortunately, the dream came true.

His food, his servants, his dogs, everything turned into gold. Including his own beloved daughter. He begged the Goddess to take the gift back. She did by having him wash is hands in a magical river and everything went back to how it was.

The moral of the story? He was already a wealthy man, no golden touch was needed for true happiness. The King of Pentacles holds a coin representing money. He sits on his throne, decorated with the heads of golden goats, behind the throne we see his servants and a pile of money at his feet.

The goat which represents Capricorn in the background tells us the King is a planner and brilliant strategist.

If you look at the card, it is evident he represents abundance, financial security, power and control of his life and situation. He likes to take care of others and provides insightful advice and guidance in all areas of life.

King Midas turned everything to gold, even his own daughter

When you see the King of Pentacles in a deck, you can pretty much start looking forward to enjoying a certain amount of success or financial gain in you work area.

You may also start to feel a certain degree of confidence in the direction you are going when it comes to career.  Or even a relationship.

Since this card represents abundance, it can also represent abundance in love depending on the other cards surrounding it in a spread.

Seeing this card, whether it’s on your deck or online is a sign that things are maybe going better than you think.

You can look back and see how you’ve been methodical and put your nose the grindstone recently. The payoff is coming, and you feel it in your bones. It’s a very lucky card.

This card also serves as a potent reminder to give freely of your time to others.  The King of Pentacles reminds us that being generous of our time in helping others either with a loan or right advice is essential to our spiritual growth and journey.

He is also a reminder that being grateful for what you already have is necessary when it comes to manifesting abundance in our lives. We are happiest when we are most grateful. And King of Pentacles is a reminds us of that.
