King of Pentacles


Pushing back the curtain of holly, enjoying the vibrant play of red and green, angles and curves, you take in a long, slow breath of the crisp air. You fancy you see a few diamond-like twinkles floating through the sky. Looking up, you feel a few shocks of sensation on your face, an icy cold pricking that somehow burns. The wood is silent but with each step you take, the sense of the sound of joy grows, although you don’t hear anything save the leaves rustling in the slightest of breezes, birds calling, animals scurrying.

The holly falls down behind you as you see them, the King and the child. An errant ray of sunshine breaks through the leafy canopy bathing them in warm light. The child is so relaxed in his arms, unconcerned about anything, safe and content. He gazes down at her sweetness, a look of love mingled with responsibility. She is in his care, and cared for she will be until the end of his days. All that he has, he shares with her and with anyone who he calls family or friend.

Divinatory meaning

This card represents someone who is practical enough to have created a comfortable life for himself. He understands and appreciates the finer things in life. He also has a generous and tender heart, willing to welcome others to share his hearth and table. His years and experience have taught him to combine generosity with common sense. He will certainly share his meal with you, but while enjoying the fine repast, he will help you make a plan to make sure your own larder is always full. He shares what he has, both physical resources and knowledge. No one leaves his home hungry. No one leaves without hope of securing their own future.
