Knight of Pentacles




Upright position:


Trustworthy, a heavy and dull outlook, patience, accepting of responsibilities, an animal lover, a nature lover, the coming/going of a matter


The Knight of Pentacles points to messages, often with regard to money and finance. You are likely to finally receive news that you've been waiting on, and this news is likely to be good. This Knight is a very practical card. The news in question is unlikely to be that you've won the lottery.

General: The Knight tells us to pay attention to the mundane and normal parts of our lives. A wise man once said, "Take care of the little things, and the big things will all fall into place." The Knight of Pentacles asks you to look at how you are handling your affairs, and is a grounding influence.

Work: Now is not the time to suggest an overthrow of the traditional ways of doing things. You must work within existing systems and accomplish what people expect you to accomplish. If you are looking for work this can be a good omen that the position you need is forthcoming, but warns that in interviews, etc., that you will need to come across as dependable and even-keeled, as they are unlikely to be looking for mavericks now.

Love: With regard to love, this card points to the responsibility and duty that is part of any love relationship. Love is not all wine and roses; true love is a willingness to work together to get through any rough spots and to work on the relationship. How well are you meeting your responsibilities? If you are looking for love when you draw this card, it's a clear signal that you need to vary your routine and try new things if you want to meet someone. Your usual haunts leave something to be desired.

Finances: When the Knight of Pentacles appears with regard to finances, it tells you that money will be coming in very soon, and that it could come from anywhere – a raise, a lottery win, an inheritance – quite literally anything. Regardless, keep your nose to the grindstone and don't bet more than you can afford to lose.

Health: Relating to health questions, the Knight suggests that your biggest pay off health wise lives mainly in the mundane. Start with the basics: are you getting enough sleep, exercise, and eating healthy foods? You don't have to undergo some full scale, uncomfortable, and difficult regime to feel better. Small, positive steps are most likely the kind of change that you can live with and make permanent.

Spirituality: You may find yourself suddenly spiritually overwhelmed, potentially with no obvious reason. Try to break down these feelings into manageable chunks, there is no need for you to tackle your whole life at one sitting. You are in the midst of spiritual change when this happens. See that you change for the better.




Reversed position:


Irresponsible, impatience, timidness, carelessness, a standstill in affairs


The reversed Knight of Pentacles can carry a warning that this is an important time to keep your focus squarely on your work, if you are working for money. This is a time to be as adult as possible, if you want to be successful.

General: Although you may be feeling somewhat listless and rather unexcited about what is going on in your life, it's important to realize that the only person that can change that is you. Learn something new. Open yourself up to change, but don't throw the proverbial baby out with the bathwater.

Work: No matter what the configuration is of your working life (working for yourself, working at a job, etc.) it is tremendously important when you pull the reversed Knight of Pentacles that you do your best to appear focused, hardworking, and methodical about your work. Slacking off now for any reason can create a major loss in your life work-wise. Pay attention.

Love: The reversed Knight of Pentacles can show that you're feeling more than a little bored with your love life. The major way to handle this is through communication if you are in a committed relationship. Most people are not mind-readers; ask for what you want and need, and you may well get it. If you are looking for love, this is not the time to "settle down." It's far better to let any prospective partners to know, up front, in so many words, that you are looking for a good time right now, and are in an exploration mode. Allow yourself to have fun, but be honest with yourself and others.Nobody but you can make your life "exciting."

Finances: If you work hard, and accomplish what you need to accomplish, your financial situation should be stable, at least. Do the best you can with what you have. This is not the time to gamble--at all.

Health: Relating to health questions, the reversed Knight of Pentacles suggests that you will imporove your health largely by doing all the things generally associated with being an adult; eating right, exercising, taking your vitamins, getting enough sleep. This is not the time for "extreme sports" when this card appears.

Spirituality: Even though much about this card relates to work and the mundane making of a living, when the Knight of Pentacles appears, it's important to realize that there is much more to life than work. Give yourself the time and space to explore the other sides to your being. Talk to people that are more "into" spiritual things than you are, and see what they have to say which resonates with you. Allow your spirit rest. Consider meditation.
