Suit of Pentacles

In the Tarot the suit of Pentacles represents both physical energy and sexual energy. This presents some difficulty because strictly speaking sexual energy is not physical energy unless it is exchanged through the act of physical sex. This is because physical energy is energy created through physical activity and is normally considered to consist of hard physical labor. Sexual energy is perhaps the sublimation or highest form of physical energy.

In any case physical energy will achieve physical results within our environments while sexual energy will not normally achieve physical results except through pregnancy and the birth of a child. What the suit of Pentacles deals with is how sexual energy is linked to physical activity and the creation or achievement of those things in life that we want.

The male was given a larger supply of sexual energy at birth than the female was. He naturally finds an outlet for this energy in physical activity, but his supply is limited. To generate more he must go through the long process of transmuting spiritual energy into mental energy, then into emotional energy and finally into sexual energy and physical energy.

The female receives a lesser amount at birth but is able to get this type of energy easily by drawing energy directly from the earth and storing it within her body as sexual energy. This is a fairly natural thing for her to do and occurs naturally in the process of having her monthly periods.

Ten of Cups

Symbol– He truly and deeply realizes how much he loves her. She realizes that she is the Holy Grail that all men seek but no man may have.

Meaning- Realization

After she leaves him, he realizes how much she really meant to him. He realizes that he truly loved her after all and that she had so much more to offer than he ever realized.

He had been wasting his life and his potential letting her do everything and never telling her how important she was to him. He took everything that she did for granted and now it is too late. She is gone forever and no one can ever replace her in his heart.

He places her on a pedestal and worships her memory. All that he remembers are the good times that they had together and now those good times are gone. He is freely generating lower emotional energy now of sorrow and sadness.

He is creating a life for himself of sadness and misery. This experience is an important one for him because he is becoming a deeper and more caring person. He is more aware of the needs of others now than ever before.

She knows that he loves her deeply and it hurts her to leave him but she also knows that her goals in life are not compatible with his goals in life. If they stayed together it would just be a life of misery for both of them.

It is far better to release him to follow his dream and for her to follow her dream. She knows that someday he will find someone else that is a better match for him. She also knows that she wants to be free to find her special person too.

She feels a sense of renewal and excitement as her new life unfolds before her. She knows that her desires will someday come true and she acts with conviction.
Society is against her this time and she feels social pressure to conform to the norm and go back to him but she refuses. She rebels violently against all that would confine her and prevent her from her true purpose and goal in life.

Male experience:

He feels hurt and anger that she would leave him. He is generating the lower emotions of pain and sorrow and his life becomes filled with these new emotions.
He never realized how much she meant to him until after she was gone. He never deserved someone like her. She was so good for him. He knows that he will never find anyone else like her.

Female experience:

She knows that he loves her and she loves him too. But he is not right for her. The love that they share is not the type of love that she really longs for. No matter how much that they try they will never really be able to meet each other’s needs because they are too different.

She feels joy and excitement in her new found freedom and reacts violently against anyone that tries to pressure her into going back to him. She knows what she is doing and she knows that someday he will find someone that is better for him than she is.

Nine of Cups

Symbol-He must tell her that he loves her. She must become lovable

Female nun

Meaning- He gives her the key

There is a struggle of wills between him and her. They have both become powerful personalities and they both generate an abundance of emotional energy at will. This means that they both are able to create and alter astrally their potential future.

He is struggling to maintain the simplicity and bliss that he had enjoyed earlier. He tries to accept her new life style and her new self image. He tries to compromise with her about the things that they both want. He is generating sorrow and anguish energies for the first time and not enjoying it at all. It is not pleasant to experience or generate this type of energy.

He tells her that he loves her and that they can salvage the relationship if she will compromise too. Between the two of them they can create any type of life that they wish.

She is not interested in compromising with him because she knows that she can create the type of life that she wants without him. She also realizes even more strongly that he is not really her type of person.

They do not share the same interests or even have that romantic spark between them. She likes him and doesn’t want to hurt him. Still she doesn’t really want to spend the rest of her life with him either.

She wants someone that she can really do things with and have fun with. She wants passion and a romantic spark to come back into her life. She wants more than what she has now and she is determined to get it.

Male experience:

He loves her and decides that he will compromise and support her in what she is trying to do in life. If she is happy and achieves her goals maybe she will be more content in their relationship and things will get better. He is generating emotional pain and sorrow energy.

He swallows his pride and allows her to become even more successful in life than he is. He even tries to be proud of her accomplishments and not threatened by them.

Female experience:

As she is more and more successful in achieving her goals she feels better and better about herself. She is able to get the things she wants and she can do it herself without him. It’s great. She finally begins to feel as if she deserves to have the nice things in life.

She begins to question the value of her relationship with him. It is not really fulfilling her needs. There is no excitement or romantic spark and he is not really the type of person that she thought he was when she got involved with him. She could do a lot better and be a lot happier with someone else.

Eight of Cups

Symbol– young girl cuts her hair to look and act like a boy.

Meaning- join forces

She is beginning to use her painful emotional energy to create a better future for herself. He is already content and has his desires fulfilled so she begins to absorb his energy and use it to create the type of life that she wants.

If he won’t do it for her she will either make him do it or go out and do it herself. Nagging and bitching have little effect on him and in the end she decides that if she wants the good life it is up to her to get it.

She decides to act upon her desires and dreams and he encourages her. If he has what he wants out of life, well so should she. It is exciting to see her go out and get what she wants. She is almost acting like a man and somehow that is sexually stimulating to him. She is a lot more than those females that stay at home all the time. Her emotional pain is driving her into new creative acts.
He is beginning to get more interested in her as a person. He even tries to give her some advice and free opinions but she doesn’t want any of it.

She wants to do this herself. This is her dream and her life and he isn’t really even a very big factor in it anymore. All that she needs from him is his love and emotional energy, hell, forget the love, all she needs from him is his emotional energy.

He can sense her slipping away from him and it alarms him. She cares more about her work than about him and their relationship. He voices his fears and resentments and hostile, angry emotional energy begins to be generated. The relationship begins to deteriorate.

Male experience:

At first she wants him to do everything and nags him unmercifully. It seems as if she can be a real shrew and he wonders where the sweet young thing disappeared to. After a while she stops complaining and begins to do things herself. This is great.

Soon he realizes that she doesn’t need him any more. She insists upon doing everything her self, even those things that he likes to do. He begins to feel unwanted and resentful of her.

Female experience:

When she realizes that she won’t get any help from him she pretty much writes him out of the story altogether. She doesn’t bother him anymore and just decides to achieve her dreams on her own. As she begins to get results she feels real joy and a sense of accomplishment.

As soon as she begins to be successful she notices that he wants to stick his nose in everything and run it the way that he wants. This is her dream, not his and she won’t allow him to ruin it for her ever again. He can’t seem to understand and they begin to have arguments and fights over what she can and can’t do.

She commits herself to him and gives him her love and support. As she gives him her love and emotional energy a strange thing happens. Instead of going out and fulfilling his true potential, he does less and less. He lets her do more and more without lifting a finger in return. She begins to realize that he is a freeloader and that she would be better off without him. He is more like a bum than like who she thought he would be.

Six of Cups

Symbol– He comes to her astrally and takes her emotional energy


By this time he can generate a constant supply of emotional energy at will. This male emotional energy creates an imbalance in him that causes him to act as a magnet for female emotional energy. Females are emotionally attracted to him by the sheer power of his personality. He has charisma.

The female energy that he receives strengthens his personality even more until he is noticed by others and enters into the spotlight of popularity. The increased energy allows him to alter potential future events as he wants. He is able to use his male energy to destroy the astral creations that prevent his goals in life. He is out to achieve his dream in its totality.

He uses energy from other females to help him destroy those parts of the future where she is in conflict with him. This loss is devastating to her and it hurts her deeply. She begins to transmute sexual energy into emotional energy but it is the emotional energy of pain and sorrow that she generates. She is already trapped by her other emotional energy creations.

Her loss triggers her ability to generate a deeper type of emotional energy. In time she will be able to use this hurt and anguish energy to create alterations to her astral future because it is a deeper type of emotional energy and closer to the fixed etheric planes. This is the first step that she must take to regain her ability to astrally recreate the potential future she desires.

Still, at this time all she can generate are the emotions of pain and sorrow. She is caught up in the bitterness of the physical life that she has created for herself and in its ruin. She blames him for her misery and may be tempted to use her newly generated pain and sorrow energy to make his life a living hell too. He ruined her life, why shouldn’t she ruin his?

She can do this by altering those astral events in his future that his has previously altered himself. The limits to this are that she can only cause him pain and sorrow because that is all that she can generate. She will take his joy and happiness and leave him the bitterness and agony. She gets pleasure from causing him pain.

Her other option is to endure her own emotional pain and work with it until she is able to use it creatively to alter her future in a positive way. She must learn to love again. When she is able to do this she will be a wiser and deeper person and able to create a more meaningful life for herself.

Male experience:

He can generate almost unlimited quantities of emotional energy at will and draws other females toward him. He is popular and life is very kind to him. He is able to astrally create the type of life for himself that he wants. He changes the negative elements of his life that she had created for him.

When she is unable to keep up with him or give him emotional support he goes elsewhere to find more adoring fans. He wants a woman that believes in him and in what he is trying to do.

Female experience:

She becomes trapped within the astral future that she had created for herself and begins to generate a deeper emotional energy. This new energy is of sorrow and anguish. She feels lost, betrayed and empty inside. How could things have gone so wrong? She created things in the astral as she wanted them and they were distorted into a nightmare parody of what she had created. Her entire life is filled with pain and sorrow and she must either drink this bitter cup to the last drop herself or give it to him and take pleasure from his pain.
