Your Chosen Card – Ace of Pentacles Reversed Rider Waite Deck
When reversed, the Ace of Coins (golden coins) suggests that something may have gone awry in your quest for material well-being. Perhaps you are missing a significant opportunity to improve financial security, or maybe your attitude toward wealth and prosperity needs adjusting. In the myth of King Midas, his unbridled greed for the acquisition of material goods leaves him devoid of human contact. Now may be a good time to ponder Buddhas teachings about nonattachment. Interestingly, the lilies on this card in the Llewellyn Classic Tarot resemble the lotus, a Buddhist symbol of nonattachment; the lotus has the ability to rise above the mire of the swamp and produce an object of beauty.

Tarot Triumphs: The scene is a marketplace in Northern Italy. It’s in a small seaside town and has just a few canopied stalls set out, serving locals and holidaymakers alike. The year is 1972. I scan the stalls, and my eye is caught by an old lady standing erect behind her table, her hands busy spreading out a pack of Tarot cards. I can see that they are a local type known as Tarocchi in these parts, brightly colored and a little smaller than the cards I am used to.
