The King of Pentacles in an upright position is a card that most often in its meaning will describe a person who is loyal, responsible, but also durable in relationships. Although the upright King of Pentacles will be in control of many things in the emotional sphere as well, he will be able to provide a good financial livelihood for his family and loved ones. However, the card in the upright position can also speak of other people who, through their abilities, will support you in achieving your goals, and also refer to a parent or a person of some guidance.

The reversed King of Pentacles is a card that does not in itself foretell very bad events, or large material losses. It only points to a loss of some kind of financial security, e.g. as a result of risky decisions which, however, over time may become profitable for the king. The card also points to someone who uses wealth solely for their own purposes, treating others with prejudice and judging them through their possessions. In certain circumstances the reversed King of Pentacles may speak of a loss of position, influence or authority. On the other hand, the King of Pentacles reversed may simply be dissatisfied with his possessions, and in fact, he has all that can be achieved in material terms. However, wealth does not give him more happiness, and he seems to be bitter and bored. Thus, he is unable to utilize his potential and the resources he has, making it difficult for him to multiply his wealth. Decisions made by the person shown in this card may be rash, too risky, and the reversed King of Pentacles himself greedy, or obsessively focused on money.
The reversed King of Pentacles can be a stubborn person with conservative views and focused mainly on money. This makes him neglect other aspects of life, especially emotional ones. The reversed King of Pentacles may also use other people for his own purposes, so you should be very careful with him. On the other hand, this card may speak of someone who is unable to provide for himself and his family materially. This could be due to laziness or taking unnecessary risks. For example, the reversed King of Pentacles may have a tendency to gamble, or have problems paying back borrowed money. If he has any, he will use it to control others. The card may also indicate situations in which you feel that your relationship is currently under threat, and the reason for this may be, among other things, your financial problems. Your partner is not someone you can rely on, and in addition, he or she may be committing fraud or even betrayal. If you are single, the reversed King of Pentacles may speak of meeting someone of a higher social and material status than you, who is using their position to gain your approval. The card encourages you to open your heart to others and share what you have.
