The Tarot Suit of Pentacles

The Tarot Suit of Pentacles is associated with the suit of Diamonds in standard playing cards.

The suit of pentacles is also known by other names, such as coins, discs or disks in some tarot decks.

The suit of pentacles is associated with the element of earth and material concerns. It is also associated with the season of winter, and with the direction North. As far as personal attributes are concerned, the pentacles refer to physical talents and mastery.

The pentagram (five-pointed star) is used to illustrate the pentacles in many of the most popular tarot decks. This is a Pythagorean symbol of health and knowledge. It can have negative connotations if inverted.

The 'Pages' in the tarot deck may also be known by other names depending on the deck used.
For example, the Golden Dawn tarot deck includes 'Princesses' and the Shapeshifter's Tarot includes 'Seekers' in place of the 'Pages' in the Rider-Waite deck.

All court cards may be interpreted as referring to a person with the card providing information to identify the individual. Alternatively they may be interpreted symbolically, in which case 'Pages' are often understood to represent messages for the querent (another word for the 'sitter', or person receiving the reading).

The element of the Pages is 'Earth' indicating something young, growing, a seed planted. Pages often indicate children, but can represent the Fool's alter ego. That is, an adult who is child-like enough might also be represented by a 'Page' ('Princess', or 'Seeker').

The different decks interpret this slightly differently with the the Rider-Waite Page of Pentacles portraying student with all his attention focussed on an upheld pentacle.
