Knight of Pentacles Tarot Card Description

Court cards (those with pictures of people on) can be understood in two ways. They can give a physical description of a person; thus the Knight of Pentacles (also known as The Knight of Coins) is a dark eyed, dark haired person under thirty-five. Or they can refer to a person’s character; in this case a responsible, if conservative, individual.

Upright Meaning

The Knight of Pentacles asks you to think about your character honestly. Are you hard working and reliable, yet you still don’t seem to be heading in the right direction? If this rings true, could you be a little too unwilling to take risks and too willing to cling to tried and tested routes? You may be the hardest working person in your workplace, but is your heart really in your job or do you gaze out of the window onto the world outside and wish you were somewhere, anywhere, else? We spend so much of our time at work, it seems a shame if you spend your days dreaming of doing something more congenial. Work, in this case, doesn’t have to mean time spent at the office; it could also mean anything you ‘work at,’ such a interacting with your family or a partner. Of course, we all have to put some effort in sometimes, but if your private life is a dull chore, perhaps you need to reassess where you go from here. If you are thinking about starting a relationship or are entering the first stage of a romance, you need to consider if you might be being a bit too cautious. Could you be coming across a bit cold when inside your heart a volcano is erupting? It’s understandable that you want to save yourself from being hurt, but how can you grow together if your significant other has no idea how you feel? The Knight of Pentacles encourages you to feel passionately about life again, whether this concerns your career, a relationship, your home or an educational endeavour. He also asks you to grasp any opportunities that come your way rather than dismissing them out of hand.

Reversed Meaning

Right now, you’re as stodgy as congealed porridge, and it is high time you lightened up a little. You need to be a bit more open-minded if you want to solve some of the curved balls life has thrown you. Being cautious has its good points, but you are crossing the boundary into becoming timid and this is stopping you from making the most of all the wonderful things life is offering to you. Finances and career matters could require a little nudge to stop them hitting the doldrums.
