Strengths Of The Suit Of Pentacles
A positive characteristic of the Suit of Pentacles is material prosperity in your life. You are financially on a secure footing and can fulfill most material desires. It is worthwhile to simply pause and appreciate your material prosperity.
Be aware of how much time and work you have already invested and enjoy the fruits of your labor. At the same time, the Pentacles Tarot cards represent dedication and hard work to make your dreams come true.
“No pain, no gain” is an old saying that perfectly describes the core properties of Pentacles. Therefore, make an exact plan, where you want to be professionally or privately in five or ten years and work specifically towards it.
For your health, the Suit of Pentacles Tarot cards mean that you are free of diseases and enjoy a high vitality. You feel like you could pull out trees. Use your inner drive to tackle challenging life goals.
With enough effort and perseverance, you will be able to fulfill your dreams in the long run. As cards associated with the element of earth, Pentacles show how deeply rooted you are in life.
You have a firm stand and have stable relationships with others in your community. Thus, even in times of crisis, you have a secure foundation and survive even the most severe storms of life.
Weaknesses Of The Suit Of Pentacles
Each Pentacle always has Two Sides, which oppose and therefore do not exclude each other. Although the element earth gives stability in life, we find it difficult to cope with sudden changes in our environment.
Too rigid plans and structures prevent us from adapting to new situations. The result is that we fall over our own feet and have to get up again. Another negative aspect of Suit of Pentacles is the sole focus on material possessions and wealth.
By striving for more and more wealth, we neglect other areas of life such as family and friends. However, money alone does not make us happy and cannot buy loving relationships.
Another weakness of Pentacles Tarot cards is carelessness in everyday life. We simply spend money on a whim, which can quickly throw our own finances into disarray. One’s own possessions are handled carelessly, which leads to a high waste of important resources.
Likewise, there is a lack of ambition in your everyday life to set goals or put them into practice. Due to a high degree of comfort, you limit your talents and abilities and stagnate in your way of life.
Such an attitude towards life often leads to illness, job loss or financial hardship. Therefore, it is important to get up and actively shape one’s own life.
