Ten of Pentacles
by Fulgour

Card Meaning
Artistic Media
Artist's Bio


Against a burgundy background, ten golden circles are here arranged in a traditional Marseilles pattern. The "pentacles" may be seen as frames or windows, offering views of that which may be close or distant.


The metamorphic nature of the butterfly compliments the transformational quality of the number ten, which stands poised to return to its reductive value, being one. Within the details of the central designs, the two flowers with six points and a central bud, and five pointed star, there is a combined total of nineteen aspects, and here again, one plus nine equals ten, and ten reduces to one.

Card Meaning

Prosperity, close relationships, inheritance. Practical stability and the tangible material physical world are signified by the Pentacle symbol, but the true meaning of this card is found intuitively, each time it appears in the context of the reading.

Artistic Media

Mounted on a poster board square, cut to the specified card size, is an inner piece of painted construction paper, sprayed with burgundy paint, with ten pennies here used for circles. Once painted and the pennies removed the pattern remained. Hobby store stickers were applied as the inner image designs.

Artist's Bio

Fulgour began studying Tarot in 1969, and Runes shortly after. He is a 1978 graduate of Southern Illinois University, where he majored in English Literature of the Renaissance. He and his wife Penelope, a native of Scarborough, England, make their home in Belvidere, Illinois, along with their very amazing kitty, Madeline.
