Card Meaning: Knight Of Pentacles

Knight of Pentacles

Element: Earth.
Astrology: Virgo, Taurus and Capricorn.
Age: young man less than 35 years of age.
Appearance: brown hair, brown/dark eyes.


  The horse on the card is slow, with a heavy step and enduring nature. This is the essence of this card. The Knight of Pentacles is a reliable and responsible person that is very slow to start into something new, but when he starts he is not stopping until it is over and done. He is not somebody who is intuitive or original. His methods are long tested and proven and he is dexterous enough to follow the procedure down to the last letter. The experience of this card might be boring but it rewards are the stable material gains.


Positive: accomplishment through patience and procedure, responsibility, methodical, hard-working, persistence.

Negative: avaricious, idle, stagnant, inertia, taking pride in accomplishments of other people.

   He rides a slow, enduring, heavy horse, to which his own aspect corresponds. He exhibits his symbol, but does not look therein. Divinatory Meanings: Utility, serviceableness, interest, responsibility, rectitude-all on the normal and external plane. Reversed: inertia, idleness, repose of that kind, stagnation; also placidity, discouragement, carelessness.
