General description

In the Rider-Waite Tarot deck, Pamela Coleman Smith depicted the Ace of Pentacles as a hand issuing from a cloud, holding a large golden coin with a pentacle upon it.

Divinatory meaning

The Ace of Pentacles indicates matters will be beneficial. It means the beginning of what was wished for and desired. This will lead you upon the path to happiness. There is creative energy in this card, perhaps not yet worked out in extreme detail, but fairly sure to work out in the future. It is a card of a good omens and a prosperous beginning. If it is found among less fortunate cards, it should indicate there will be a silver lining to the trouble ahead.

If reversed, the card can mean: The evil side of wealth, bad intelligence. Great riches, prosperity, comfortable material conditions. A share in the finding of treasure.
