Tarot Card Meanings
Coins or pentacles are concerned with practical, concrete things, and with the body.
The Field of Action represented by Pentacles (Diamonds) is: money, wealth, acquisition. Study the image of each card as you read their meanings.
Max Freedom Long wrote of the Pentacles:
PENTACLES: These mark the events and efforts where money or the means of getting or doing things may be concerned. Here we watch for the progress of making and investing money, spending or giving it away, etc. With bad accompanying cards, we see loss of money.
Kahuna Lani says that money is the means of getting things done in Western Civilization. Pentacles has to do with accomplishment and the means to accomplishment. Money provides the means of Service, and Huna teaches that money is good for us, and that we make good use of our money. Money is no an ends in and of itself. It is however, the way the Created World balances value received and effort expended. The Created World does not support selfdestructive behavior. People, who receive Service for free, get what they pay for, especially when the Aumakuas are involved. The Aumakuas may not know the value of a dollar, for after all, it’s been many lifetimes since they’ve lived on the physical plane. They do however perceive an exchange. This precept applies to individual, group, and organizational efforts.
