— Sigmund Freud

As mentioned in the post, Fucking Courts, court cards are one of the most controversial, as well as, confusing, overwhelming, and overall-stress-inducing modes of a Tarot Deck. Primarily, Court Cards either represent an aspect of us (the seeker) or someone within our lives, particularly someone upon whom we’ve ‘projected’ that part of our personality. However, they can also symbolize timing, qualities to embody, spiritual guides, and even events and situations coming into existence; thus making them all the more complicated to interpret.

The Court of Pentacles tend to be practical, grounded, solid, and weighted in this physical reality. They tend to be oriented towards work, goals, money, and the physical senses (especially touch). These are the sensualists who often like to garden, sculpt, and give and receive massages. These are also the builders and the doers on the planet; these folks often help establish businesses, cooperatives, foundations, and projects. They are loyal, headstrong, and literally down-to-earth people. Their practical nature can sometimes leave them a little too weighted, and they can get stuck in ruts and feel bogged down. They need a little stimulation and spark to get them out of their routines.

The following are a list of keywords for the Court of Pentacles. These keywords are not to be relied on as crutches, but as creative springboards for us to develop our own interpretation and understanding of not just each card, but the Court of Pentacles on its whole. And let’s face it, sometimes relating court cards with Celebrities does help.

~ “Money, pardon the expression, is like manure. It’s not worth a thing unless it’s spread around, encouraging young things to grow.” ~

— Dolly Levi (From the musical Hello Dolly)

The Suit of Pentacles is associated with the element of Earth. Pentacles signify the fruits of our labor, the results of the process we have been through with the other suits. They represent security, as well as, the literal ‘ground’ from which new ideas can grow. Pentacles also represent the value of physical experience, and are also our connection to nature and earth. Everything within this suit is tangible, real, and can be experienced in the physical level of existence. Within a reading, an excess of Pentacles could represent things like getting stuck in a rut, lack of imagination and stimulation, heaviness, sluggishness, and to some extent, even melancholy. A lack or absence of Pentacles could represent flightiness, lack of focus, anxiety and confusion, a weak root chakra, and financial instability.
