The Pentacles - Vampire Tarot of the Eternal Night

The pentacles represent the physical body, the sense of touch, the element of earth, physical labour, money and material objects.

 The Ace Of Pentacles

The Ace of Pentacles is a manifestation of something that has been desired and is sometimes an unexpected gift. Unlike the Ace of Wands, Cups or Swords, which offers news and inspiration of the spirit heart and mind, the Ace of Pentacles adds something tangible and useful to the environment.
If you draw the Ace of Pentacles it can mean getting a new job, a bonus at work or a raise in pay, a gift of money, a clean bill of health, or receiving something needed for one's survival such as food clothing or shelter. It can also mean physical aid such as that given by a health organization or humanitarian group. Whatever the case, your needs will be met.


 The Two Of Pentacles

The Two of Pentacles involves handling and managing new acquisitions. Finding solutions to permanently implement these acquisitions requires innovation and action. The Two of Pentacles is therefore about action and problem solving.
If you draw the Two of Pentacles it can mean learning to cope, developing new strategies, handling a busy schedule, shuffling or juggling time, energy and/or attention, riding a wave of good fortune, making decisions, being active and/or physical activity in general.




The Three Of Pentacles

The Three of Pentacles is about co-operating with a group and generally involves craftsmanship and/or enterprise. Strategies developed in the Two of Pentacles are now in action and the focus is on construction.
If you draw the Three of Pentacles there will be involvement with others, hard work, being recognized for your work, something in process, positive influences, or something taking shape.



The Four Of Pentacles

The Four of Pentacles combines the solidity of earth with the stability of a square structure. It is a dependable and stable position but there is an excess of stability that can lead to hoarding or being stuck in a position that is difficult to get out of.
If you draw the Four of Pentacles it indicates an stable position, wealth, or miserliness.



The Five Of Pentacles

The Five of Pentacles is about physical or social struggle. Fives generally represent the center of a polarity which means the equal of opposites is in balance and there is no clear choice present. Does that sound cryptic? Trying to deal with anything to do with a five is like this.
If you draw the Five of Pentacles you could be facing financial or material hardship or health troubles. It can also indicate social rejection, separation by distance, or the limitations of physics.




The Six Of Pentacles

The Six of Pentacles is about giving and receiving. It is a harmonious flow in the material world representing the balance in nature. Getting what one needs is most often conditional on someone or something else giving it.
If you draw the Six of Pentacles your needs will be met through an interaction that may or may not be visible to you. It can sometimes mean you are the one taking care of someone else's needs.



The Seven Of Pentacles

The Seven of Pentacles can be best represented by the idea of incubation or cultivation. The sevens represent an internal struggle of growth aimed at achievement, such as a garden in midsummer, the process of healing, or a milk product aging towards becoming a cheese.
If you draw the Seven of Pentacles your finances, physical health or social situation will be wrapped up in a process of growth that has likely not concluded. A period of waiting patiently is required before success will be visible.




The Eight Of Pentacles

The Eight of Pentacles denotes action. It is represented by hard work and is often accompanied by learning or much effort.
If you draw the Eight of Pentacles it can mean getting an education, learning a skill or trade, or that physical effort is required.




The Nine Of Pentacles

The Nine of Pentacles is the achievement of physical or social success on a personal level.
If you draw the Nine of Pentacles it can mean success in business, financial independence, or optimum physical health.




The Ten Of Pentacles

The Ten of Pentacles is the achievement of physical or social success on a group level. It is represented by family, friends and colleagues.
If you draw the Ten of Pentacles it can mean success in business that benefits a group, family money, wealth, inheritance, good health, well established and/or long term viability.




The Page Of Pentacles

The Page of Pentacles exhibits a practical and trusting, yet naive nature. The Page of Pentacles wants to help. There is a willingness to learn or to be of practical assistance.
If you draw the Page of Pentacles it can represent a person or attitude of kind consideration, practical assistance and aid, or the willingness to learn a new skill.




The Knight Of Pentacles

Insightful explications, as usual! I love the look of these cards... so different from The Tarot of Vampires, and yet as I gaze at them they give me the same feeling of being drawn into another world.
