INSPIRATIONAL TAROT DECK KING OF PENTACLES
By Keen Editorial Staff

When reversed, the King of Pentacles is removed from his throne. This loss raises many questions about how he ended up in this situation and what he must do to correct it. In tarot readings, the reversed King of Pentacles card represents a loss of control over a situation or a failure to achieve your end goal. Here are a few of the possible interpretations that may apply if you see this card appear reversed during an online tarot card reading.

Material Obsession

The King of Pentacles reversed may represent you or someone in your life who has an obsession with material possessions. He expects to rule as king, enjoying the “finer things of life.” He looks down on those who cannot live up to his own social status. You will often find him bragging about his possessions. He will do anything for the love of money and “things,” even if it means taking advantage of someone else to get it. This could include marrying for money and only maintaining the relationship for as long as it takes to squander their partner’s money. You will often find the King of Pentacles reversed excessively indulging in things that bring him fun and pleasure, such as food, wine, or sex. This card may serve as a warning about someone in your life or an insight into your own faults.

Financial Insecurity

Because of this obsession with material things, you may find that financial insecurity comes with the reversed King of Pentacles. You are spending at a rate beyond what you can make. Now is the time to establish a proper budget that is realistic based on your income. Accomplishing this may mean letting go of some of the luxuries that you hold dear.

A Need for Fun

Staying grounded is generally a good thing. But it is possible to become too rigid in your approach to life. The reversed King of Pentacles card may be trying to show you how to break free of the rut that you’ve been trapped in lately. Everyone deserves the chance to let loose and have a little fun from time to time. Sometimes you don’t even realize how badly you needed the change of pace until you soak in that breath of fresh air.

Fear of Commitment

When it comes to relationships, the reversed King of Pentacles often represents a fear of commitment. This may be related to a general and persistent fear of commitment. Or, this may be related to the state of your current relationship. While your partner might have once seemed to be your perfect match, you have come to the realization that they are not actually what you are looking for. Your partner may have seemed to be committed and devoted to you at one point in time, but it is now clear that they are just controlling and possessive in your relationship.

A Partner in Need

Another interpretation for the King of Pentacles reversed in a relationship tarot reading is that your relationship will face instability and uncertainty in the near future. You may be used to your partner being your “rock” whenever things get tough, but now it is your turn to be supportive and protective. Before this, you might have thought your partner was unstoppable and able to overcome any obstacle that comes their way. It is very hard to watch someone that you love and think highly of struggle. But it is only through your support and help that your partner can regain their own strength and courage.

Fitness Extremes

When it comes to your health, the King of Pentacles reversed suggests that you are taking it to the extremes, either by completely neglecting it or obsessively focusing on it. Although it might seem as though it is not possible to be too mindful of your health, taking it to the extremes does come with some hidden dangers. You increase your risk of injury by pushing your body too hard. Or, you might quickly burn out from these extreme measures and find yourself swinging to the opposite side of the issue. Obsessively worrying over your health and fitness can also make you dissatisfied and depressed as you go on a never-ending quest for an unrealistic and unobtainable goal.

On the other hand, this card can mean that you are neglecting your health. Failure to exercise and eat properly can leave you feeling lazy and sluggish, as well as lead to serious health problems down the road. It’s time to find the right balance to take care of yourself so you can enjoy a healthy and fulfilling life.

Time to Get Organized

You’re doing everything you possibly can, but for some reason, you just don’t seem to be making any progress on anything. The King of Pentacles reversed may be a signal that it is time for you to get organized. Achieving your goals depends on taking small, steady steps to tackle what you want to accomplish. Don’t get lost trying to focus on the big picture. Instead, keep your sights set on the smaller, achievable pieces of the puzzle. Be patient – it will take time for you to reach the end results you desire.
