Managing Money: It's In The Cards


The Suit of Pentacles relates to money and security and earth. What this means is that when you see the Six of Pentacles, it’s not just about generosity pouring from you, it’s about accepting generosity so you can be secure. Balance. The Ten of Pentacles assures you that you’re going to be taken care of, but you have to go through the stage of the Four of Pents and sit on your money for a while to make that happen.

I get a lot of questions from clients related to security and finances. It can be a really scary presence in your life, and tarot readings can help you navigate a little easier.

One of the spreads I like to use for money readings is the YOU ARE HERE spread. It gives you an idea of where you are, what tools you can use to move you forward, and what you can get rid of to make the future easier.


One card in the middle, and one card at North, South, East, and West.

1. Covering - where you are
2. Bottom - what's holding you up
3. Left - What you're dragging in from the past
4. Top - What you should reach for
5. Right - What you can hold onto to pull yourself forward.

Not looking into the future.  Not trying to figure out what's next.  Just what do I have?  Where am I?  How can I work with what I have? Once you know the answers to these questions, you will be better prepared for what’s coming up.

More importantly, if you do this reading at the beginning of every quarter or of every year, you’ll have a fresh eye on your finances annually. Just like your future, your finances are always shifting. Keeping an eye on them will help you stand up and get your bearings.
