The King of Pentacles represents accumulation of wealth or success, abundance, reputation, status, generosity and leadership. We have pictured some one with a great deal of personal responsibility to a larger group or organization, but who is not burdened or oppressed by it; instead the King of Pentacles feels rewarded, fulfilled and proud of his position. He is security- and stability-loving by nature, symbolized by the Taurean bulls that surround his throne, and is thus the ideal leader for the direction of the kingdom. He has the diligence, patience, and competence to lead, paired with many decades of experience, as well as honors and riches from his past succeses.
His cloak blends almost indistinguishably into the palace garden around him, symbolizing at once his comfort in his position of responsibility and influence and that he has not lost connection to the vitalizing forces of nature nor the simple pleasures of life. This may signify that you need to be cautious, conservative or pragmatic in your approach, especially if you are in a position of leadership or have to make a decision. Refer to experts and well-accomplished masters in your field.
