King of Pentacles Reverse Draw Meaning

Though the upright King of Pentacles seems like a straightlaced individual, the reversed version of this minor arcana card is the opposite. Those who draw the reversal have thrown practicality to the wind and are showing an excessive interest in food, alcohol, and carnal pleasure. You are also being overly possessive about the things that give you comfort.

Perhaps you have also become so desperate for money that you are doing anything for it. You are easily impressed by the titles others hold and wish to coddle them. You constantly name-drop in hopes of using the achievements of others as a way to boost your own worth. Doing this is going to create a negative reputation for you and could also hurt the people you are squelching off of. Work hard using your own abilities if you want to create lasting success.

About The Pentacles

The Pentacles are all about rewarding efforts and the physical world. The Pentacles deal with our physical abilities and talents; they are about the relationships to personal service, as well as offering physical rewards for living those experiences. The ultimate quest shall be for the wisdom and the power to serve others, not the self. The Pentacles are the element of earth (think down-to-earth), the season of winter, the direction of south, and the colours green and brown.
