A hand emerges from a small cloud, holding a golden Pentacle in its palm. The sky behind the cloud is a soft grey. Beneath the hand, white wildflowers bloom among the green grass. A small path leads to an arch in a hedge. In the distance are mountains.

TarotCraft Upright Meaning

You may be planning a new enterprise, writing a book, undertaking a creative endeavour or business partnership. Basically, anything that will have a tangible presence in the material world on completion.
TarotCraft Reversed Meaning
The love of money is the root of all evil. Is someone (or you, maybe?) prioritising money over people? Possessions over love? A loss is indicated, or an expected gain will not occur.
TarotCraft Gift, Invitation and Challenge
The gift of this card is a simple fact: you can change your environment, yourself, your career, your finances. Whatever changes you want to make in the physical world, you currently have the strength and ability to bring those changes about.
This card invites you to turn your attention to your physical world and self. It’s time to take care of your physical needs and resources, such as starting a budget, an exercise regime, or upgrading your home environment. You are invited to become grounded and centred in things that bring you joy.
The challenge of this card is finding a balance between the physical aspects of life and elements that are intangible. These could include relationships, self-development, spirituality (if that’s your thing), and contributing to the world in a way that benefits others and not your just yourself. It’s easy to become blinkered by our immediate needs and wants and forget about the bigger picture. We need to keep in mind how we impact others, not just today but in years and generations to come.
