Moving on from the Aries cards, let’s take a look at Taurus in the Minor Arcana and how this zodiac sign can be interpreted in a reading.

While Taurus is linked to the Hierophant in the Major Arcana, it is also associated with the King of Pentacles and the following pip cards:

Five of Pentacles – Mercury in Taurus

Six of Pentacles – Moon in Taurus

Seven of Pentacles – Saturn in Taurus

As you can see, each pip card has a planet and zodiac sign assigned to it, but what does it all mean?

Let’s take one step at a time.

Taurus Characteristics

Taurus is an earth sign associated with stability, steadfastness and a practical, down-to-earth attitude.

Taurus people are reliable and loyal. They favour tradition and security over change and uncertainty, which can make them inflexible and stubborn at times.

Now we can link these traits to the individual pip cards:

five of pentaclesFive of Pentacles – Mercury in Taurus

This card is associated with hardship, poverty and insecurity.

Influenced by Mercury, the planet of communication and travel, self-reliant Taurus may need to overcome reluctancy to ask for help.

The mercurial energies of change and flux are a disruptive force for Taurus, who has to learn to do things differently in order to overcome this difficult situation.

Mercury and Taurus represent opposing energies, which are reflected in the stark image.

However, Mercury is primarily linked to the Magician, so it can also be a force for good. Taurus needs to tap into the Magician’s power to get back on track.

And while the Magician is focused on power, potential and purpose, the Five of Pentacles may also indicate (temporary) loss of these qualities.

The Moon represents the divine feminine (linked to the High Priestess), intuition and our feelings and emotions.

Combined with Taurus, the energy of the Six of Pentacles is benevolence and charity.

Keywords and meanings that come to mind with this astrological combination are humility, gratitude, generosity, benefactor, favours, kindness.

Here, Taurus gets in touch with feelings, acting on emotions and intuitive guidance.

Saturn is linked to the World in the Major Arcana, which suggests a sense of completion in the Seven of Pentacles.

While the World is focused more on being established and content with where you are, the Seven of Pentacles indicates the growing urge to break out of the status quo and do something new.

But Saturn is also ruler of Capricorn – the Devil – and combined with Taurus can create inertia or complacency.  New ideas may never be turned into reality as that would involve leaving the familiar behind.

Taurus loves being in a comfortable position, and in the Seven of Pentacles we may also detect a hint of laziness and perhaps even unproductiveness. Lots of work to do, but another tea break, please! ?
