Upright:

A generous man.
The King will work for rewards.
Success and comfort.

Reversed:

The untrustworthy.
In debt and overspending.
Gambling, corruption.

Thanks for sharing Kasie!! Congrats on the last Pentacle card! :clap: :clap:

Looking at the King of Pentacles I feel that it’s the busiest card in the deck. To me the card is about hard work (hence the reward), and to me that’s why it feels like he’s neck deep in his posessions and affairs. (which could be good or bad)

Lovely as always, @Amethyst! :clap::heart_eyes:

This line in particular called out to me- oftentimes being “reward motivated” (in a material sense, as tied to the Pentacles) is seen as a negative trait, but here in the Upright meaning I feel like it takes on a more positive light.

While in an ideal world everyone would only be motivated by higher purposes, in this world I think everyone does things for treats and goodies- be it money or otherwise. I know I’m certainly motivated by a nice piece of cake! :yum::cake: :joy:

Thanks again for these haikus, Amethyst! They are always thought-inspiring :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Yeah, to motivate Americans to get vaccinated, donut shops, hamburger joints and empty carb bakeries are giving away free food. That’s makes no sense!! If the government is so worried about our health then why not give out money instead?? :sweat_smile:

Thanks, @Francisco! I’m glad you liked it! I’m onto Swords next!

There are situations where working for a goal is good, but that’s a reward too, even if it’s just the feel-good feeling of knowing you’ve done a job well.

And who wouldn’t work for cake? LOL!

You’re welcome, glad you liked it!

It’s a good song! I used to play it over and over when I was a kid on the jukebox at Pizza Hut. LOL! Thanks again, love!
