Prosperity, material gain, opportunity, new responsibilities
“So, the Ace of Pentacles is generally an earth card, so incorporating earth elements like sand, flowers, and rocks was important. However, most depictions of this card are of a hand coming out of a cloud, cupping the pentacle. I have the hand cupping the pentacle, but also wanted to add the clouds…so they’re there, just not in the traditional sense. This card is about prosperity, growth, and wealth. It’s a wicked card for me to illustrate – right up my alley!”
A young mermaid sits on top of a rock in a clear lagoon, holding a large gold coin to her chest. The rocks behind her are verdant and fertile, sea flowers grow around her. Just below the waters where she sits, an open treasure chest lies, treasure starting to spill out. Fluffy white clouds float above her, in a clear, blue sky. Her face is happy, but serene, rather than smug and self-satisfied. Better times are ahead of her, a new material world is opening up to her.
This card suggests that you will be more secure and healthier – possibly a gift, but more likely is that you will find new opportunities to achieve your goals. This is a start, not an end.
