Pentacles – Love and Romance Associations
How to Interpret ‘Pentacle Cards’ in a Relationship Reading
Pentacles- Quite Interesting in Relationship Readings
Pentacles are generally welcomed in Relationship Readings once they are Upright. Cups are all very well and good for love and romance, but they can have their heads stuck in the clouds and get lost in unrealistic dreams as their emotions run away with them. Yes, Cups do highlight matters of the heart, but only on the basis of fluctuating emotions. The love experienced by Cups can turn sour overnight as they are easily influenced by their shifting environment. They view love and romance in an idealistic way and most certainly they are to be encouraged in this manner for we should all be lost without love. However, holding on to that love once they have found it can prove a stressful endeavor. Some Cups are forever chasing the dream lover or relationship. Disappointment or disillusionment can follow. Pentacles help them to be more realistic and practical about their needs.
Once Love or emotional contentment has been found, it is the Pentacle/Earth influence that offers the glue to hold it all together. Pentacles ground the sometimes floaty aspect of love and help manifest it into a solid functional relationship. They work well with the Cups once a happy balance is maintained. Cups desire security, commitment and faithfulness in relationships. The Pentacles can provide these much more-so than any Wand or Sword. Pentacles also introduce Cups to the notion that one cannot live solely on love, drama or excitement. They demonstrate that for a love to be enjoyed and beneficial to both partners, it must be earned and sustained. They offer consistency to the fluctuating emotional shifts of Cups in relationships. Cups in relationships offer love now, this minute, intense love, passionate love, but they do not always suggest long-term love unless found in abundance. Even then, one would worry about the long-term prognosis. It might all be too good to be true. The Pentacles provide hope for the future of the relationship and reassure you that what you are feeling now does have the potential to develop further. You are allowed feel secure, and this brings a great sense of knowing exactly where you stand with your partner or in your relationship. Pentacles offer the yardstick by which you can measure the growth of a successful relationship. Pentacles on their own can view their relationship or partner as a business arrangement. Therefore they cannot offer the full package either. They need Cups to show them the loving ways of the heart.
The brief interpretations below (only a rough guide), provide insight on how Pentacles can be read in a Relationship Spread. Yes, they are very welcome in such readings, but an overload of Pentacles can highlight an unbalanced approach to love. However, if both partners in a relationship share this very one-sided approach then who are we to argue or judge? They can live quite contentedly in this manner and may not want to change a thing. A Reader should take note of not only the cards that are laid out before them, but also the Suits that are poorly represented, or totally absent, for these can reveal the underlying currents in a relationship and motivation of partners.

6 – Seeking assistance or support for a troubled relationship. Balance can be restored with a give and take attitude.
Six – This is a strange card indeed when it appears in relationship readings for it can imply so many conflicting meanings. It is a card of extremes but once upright it is generally an agreeable situation. It depends on which figure you identify with in this card. Are you the central figure, looking down upon the kneeling, begging or fawning figures on the ground, or is it the other way round? This card can suggest generosity and compassion in relationships but one partner definitely takes the lead and more than likely is the decision-maker and controller of finances too. Here we have a situation where one partner may be the sole provider. There could be a couple relying on social welfare to make ends meet. We can have a situation of domination or submission but in the upright all are happy enough with the arrangement. Co-dependence can be highlighted. It can mean you like to look after and care for your partner but you might believe you know best for them in all matters. Everything you do is for their own good, even if they may not see it that way. This card can also suggest that you are a giver in your relationship but find it hard to take. This could make your partner feel inferior or under obligation to you. You must work to address this balance. However, you may be with a partner in need of help but is too proud to ask for it. If so, you will have to find a way to assist without making it appear like charity. Don’t make a big deal out of it. Do it discreetly and keep it to yourselves. You may also have married into money when this card appears. This could change your life or make you feel miserable and inferior. You might find it difficult to fit in. For those going through a separation or divorce we could be looking at the provision of maintenance or the divvying up of assets and finances. The central figure can be the one who carries the main burden of financial outgoings, or possibly the legal representation who stand to gain the most out of such situations. Note the obvious wealth and class distinctions between the standing and kneeling figures. An interesting note on this card is to maintain your integrity and sense of decency should your relationship fall into disarray or disharmony. Don’t be forced by others to stoop to low levels in order to achieve your aims. Also there may be an external figure or third-party who is ready and waiting to help a couple in need. They mean well. Seeking professional help for a troubled relationship….. Read Full Card Description
Yes/No Card – Yes to a give and take relationship. Yes, to generosity of spirit and coming to the aid of your partner. Yes to seeking external help for your relationship. Yes to arriving at an agreeable arrangement in separations or divorces. No to giving too much all the time.

6 rx – Inequality in relationships and a loss of balance. Taking or giving. Feigned appearance of harmony.
Six Reversed – This reversed card can suggest dreadful inequality in a relationship. A controlling relationship where one is dominated by the other. Claustrophobia and resentment. You might feel your partner has no time for you, that you only get the breadcrumbs off his/her table. On the other hand you might be known as a taker, someone who always has the hand-out or looking for something. Enough may never be enough. You could be putting the poor mouth on to your partner. You may feel that your partner is draining you of all your resources. Marrying for money. Insincerity and the use of finances to control a partner. In separations or divorces one partner is literally taken to the cleaners financially. You may lose everything, or have little left for yourself. There might not be enough to go around. This card can highlight meanness that is hidden from public view or only giving with a view to getting something back in return.Someone is making a big deal out of doing something for their partner. You are certainly never going to be let forget this one and all they have done for you. It also highlights dreadful financial circumstances for a couple. You may feel that you have fallen very far down the material ladder and need to look to others for assistance. There could be a job loss for a partner which puts much strain on a relationship.

What have you got to show for all the years you have been together? Do you still want the same now as you did five years ago? If single, do you feel like an outsider as all your friends settle down? For those who are between relationships, now would be a good time to reflect on previous ones. You have much experience behind you now which should make you wiser and more decided about what you want out of a relationship in the future.
