If you draw the Ace of Earth card in the Mystical Cats Tarot deck in the reversed position, what does it mean? Is this a good card to draw? What lessons can you learn from this tarot card reading?
DECK: Mystical Cats Tarot
CARD: Ace of Earth (Ace of Pentacles)
In Mystical Cats Tarot, the Earth Clan cards correspond to the Suit of Pentacles in any of the Waite Tarot decks. In this case, the Ace of Earth is the analog for the Ace of Pentacles. In this deck, the imagery of the Ace of Earth depicts a giant cat paw engraved into a big tree in the middle of a field.
What advice does this card give you?
When it’s upright, the Ace of Earth (or Ace of Pentacles) signifies new opportunity is right on the horizon. But when reversed, it can represent missed opportunity or a lack of foresight or planning.
The Mystical Cats Tarot deck guidebook, “The Tales of the Mystical Cats,” advises you that you may miss a great opportunity that’s right in front of you. You may be too ungrounded or scattered currently to see it. Don’t doubt your own good fortune by waste it by putting things off or being careless with your gifts.
The advice for this card also suggests that if you drew this card for a question, the answer could be yes or no. It depends on what gift is being offered to you and whether or not you want to accept it.
While this card does have many negative connotations, there is a bright side to revealing this card for your reading. It can mean that you’re experiencing self-doubt about an opportunity that has presented itself. In that case, the card advises you to not pass it up.
Another positive way of looking at this card in the reversed position is that you may have been putting off something you’ve wanted to do for a long time. Seeing this card in your reading signifies that you shouldn’t delay any longer and pursue whatever it is that you want to do. Follow your heart and in this case, listen to your heart over your head.
However, seeing the Ace of Earth reversed also means you must be cautious in your ventures. But, don’t let taking careful steps be mistaken for putting things off. You may need to take baby steps rather than diving headlong into whatever it is you’re trying to do.
Drawing the Ace of Earth in your Tarot reading means that the Earth Clan is welcoming you. It means that you have a strong connection with the Earth that you shouldn’t deny. You may be frustrated that things are not manifesting in the way you intended, and you may be finding great difficulty in achieving your goals. Don’t take this card as a bad omen, though. Just look at it as a sign that you just need to pursue your same goals, but that you should be mindful of each step that you take.
If you’ve ever drawn the Ace of Earth - or Ace of Pentacles - in your Tarot Reading, what has it told you?
