The ace of pentacles indicates potential. There is an opportunity at hand. The conditions are right for you to prosper. What will you do with this opportunity? Will you let it slip away, or will you act on it? This is entirely up to you. Just know this- you have a chance before you. The wise thing to do would be to take advantage of it.
Look at the lone pentacle depicted in the ace of pentacles card. Consider this pentacle to be a seed of prosperity. What does prosperity mean to you? Does it mean material wealth? Does it mean an abundant harvest in the field? Does it mean getting through to students? Does it mean finding inspiration to write a great novel? Answering this question is a very individual endeavor.
One person cannot possibly answer this with any degree of accuracy for another. What matters is what it means to you. When the ace of pentacles comes up for you in a reading, it is suggesting that the conditions are right to truly give this thought, for as you give it thought you generate energy for it. From this energy, your prosperity will grow.
As you consider this pentacle to be a seed, metaphorically ponder the soil in which you are planting it. Have you prepared as much as you can to truly allow it to grow to maturity? Have you made all the plans you need to make? Is everything in place to implement this plan to the best of your ability? The more sure you are of this, the greater likelihood you will have of success.
Metaphorically consider as well, how well are you tending to this seed as it grows? Keep your mind free of clutter and focus on this idea that you have. Consider distractions as weeds. Keep this plant you are growing free of weeds, for weeds will only choke out what is pure and perfect with your endeavor. Give it attention. Give it energy. Give it light. Examine what is working and what is not. Accentuate what is going well and eliminate what is hindering forward momentum and growth, just as you would trim the buds of a tree.
This is your tree of abundance and success. It has grown from that one small seed you planted. By preparing the soil in which it is planted and by caring for it as it grows, it can grow tall and strong, providing you abundance and prosperity. It is up to you though to see to it that it does. It is up to you to adjust it and reform it as it grows. Once the roots are deeply planted, and it has grown tall, you will appreciate the efforts you put into it.
When the ace of pentacles comes up for you in a reading, consider the opportunities before you. You have a chance to make something great happen. The opportunity is here to create a new opportunity for yourself that will ultimately be of great benefit to it. Put your energy into making this happen. You will be pleased with the results.
