The Ace is an upsurge of powerful energy. It is a beginning, a starting point. It brings luck and light and possibility. Pentacles are the suit pertaining to the element of Earth – this represents our Earthly goodness- money, how we get it, keep it, and grow the resources that support us.
This card glows with the power of possibility. When we grow from the inside out, like a tree, we are anchored in our authenticity. In order to construct the life that we want, we must begin at the center of our being. So often, we believe that if we can just construct our lives to appear to be how we would like, then we will automatically feel the way we desire to feel. If I have the perfect looking life, then I will feel better about myself. If I have a bigger house, a richer/hotter/more powerful lover, the perfect clothing, the ideal family etc etc, then I will feel better about myself. If I can convince other people that I am great, then maybe they will be able to convince me that I am great…. It seems foolish, but it is how most people operate.
The Ace of Pentacles points to the inner power at the center of our being that will support our true growth and prosperity. There is a deep desire inside all of us to be acknowledged and understood and rewarded for our work. If we are centered in our power, then we can be guided towards what is truly nourishing for us. This is a place of radical self-responsibility. This card forces us to acknowledge the deepest desire we have to interact with the material world, and reminds us that we are supported in our growth, evolution and desires for manifestation. The Aces are all about potential, and the Ace of Pentacles speaks to our potential to create and be materially supported in our daily life.
All of life supports our growth and continued success on a soul level. There is a core of power within the center of every being that fuels this expansion. Creation magic happens from the inside out. This card reminds us that true growth begins from the center, and radiates outward. Don’t expect that external change will create internal shifts. The reality is that when we begin with internal shifts, our outer world will mirror our new ways of being.
At the heart of our beliefs about money and material support, there must be a belief in possibility. That is the living core of our potential. When our inner core glows with the openness of possibility, then anything is really possible! If it seems like a stretch to have this much faith, then just try acting as if. Act as if the whole world supports you in the fulfillment of your desires. And see what happens!
