What does the Ace of Pentacles mean?

September 8, 2015

Ace of Coins -- Tarot of the Masters.
Here is a pithy meaning for the Ace of Pentacles:
Find the magic in the mundane.

This wonderful pithy meaning comes from today’s piece of advice in my “Random Acts of Kindness 21 day challenge” from

Here is the full write up:

Find Magic In The Mundane: Lurking in the most dreaded and dullest of tasks is an invitation to uncover the gifts of the mundane.  Today, as you wash dishes, notice the pattern on the plates, the feeling of the water on your hands, and the sound of the utensils clinking.  Or, as you log onto a computer, take a moment to reflect on how this now taken-for-granted technology interacts with your life.  Or, while you’re warming up a meal, perhaps you’ll take a moment to savor the aroma of the food, and seize the opportunity to invite someone to join you for lunch.  There are so many activities in our day that can seem repetitive or tedious – today is the day to watch them bloom into something beautiful under the gaze of our full attention.  For inspiration watch this short film called “Seeing” made by an 18-year-old.

But why did I associate this with the Ace of Pentacles? First of all, there is the fact that the suit of Pentacles is associated with the mundane, earthly aspects of life (versus the spiritual, emotional, and mental aspects). On the other hand, although this suit used to be called “Coins,” it is now often symbolized by the magical emblem of a Pentacle. Then there is the fact that the Aces can represent the highest ideals of their suit.  Thus, the Ace of Pentacles is about finding the magic in the mundane.
