King of Pentacles

A man wearing a crown sits on a heavily carved throne adorned with carvings of bulls heads.  He wears a flowing robe embroidered with grape vines and holds a globed scepter in his right hand.  His left hand holds a pentacle which rests upon his leg.

A very successful and probably fairly wealthy man with an abundance of good business sense.  This isn’t someone who’s striving for success – he’s already there. And, in keeping with the old cliche about how the rich get richer, he just keeps on making more money.

The bulls on the throne show that he has a strong sensual nature but probably also feels a need to dominate those around them.  The grapes indicate that, like his queen, he enjoys the finer things in life and expects nothing but the best.On a mundane level, look for a dark complected, heavy set or muscular man who is conservative and close to his family.  Solid but fairly boring.

REVERSED:  A businessman who is capable of being vicious and very hard hearted who may be after the questioner in some sense.  Alternatively, a businessman who looks rock solid but may be totally undependable or secretly down on his luck.

EXAMPLES:  The CEO of a major company with a heavy stock portfolio.

The patriarch of a very successful family business.
