What does the King of Pentacles mean?

October 22, 2016

King of Coins / Pentacles in Tarot of the MastersKing of Pentacles:
“Behind many a great fortune there is a crime.”

This quote is attributed to Balzac. However, it is a simplification of his actual quote, which is much less pithy, as you can see here:

The secret of a great success for which you are at a loss to account is a crime that has never been found out, because it was properly executed.

Note that the connotations here are a bit different from the more common version of his quote. Take from this what you want.


Note: Each of these pithy Tarot meanings is just one facet of its card. Find more of them on my Card Meanings page.  Also, get my Pithy Tarot eBook and LIKE my Pithy Tarot Facebook page!
