In the Knight of Pentacles, we see the Knight on his steady horse. The land on the background has been worked on, by who we do not know. Now it is time to wait and see what we will reap in the future. He holds his Pentacle steadily in front of him. This card could indicate this slowness and steadiness, or show a lack of movement.

The Knight of Pentacles as a day card

Today you or someone you know might be waiting to reap what they have sown. The question is, has anything been sown, or are we just waiting? And if so, for what? What does the Pentacle represent? And who could this be?

Negative or reversed meaning for this card

The horse in all the Knights, have been moving, some faster than others but all of them have moved. In this image we find the horse and its Knight at a standstill, this might be a good thing, it might be that we stagnating and should really get ourselves slightly into gear. If we interpret the card negatively, than the latter is most likely the case.

How this card could present itself in real life

With any major project people undertake, there will be times of lots of action and times of little action. I have been around several people who have under taken their PhD’s and mostly the discussion is about how slowly things are moving. However once they have finished their doctoral they have something very valuable in both education and employment prospects.

How this card is represented in other Tarot decks

Knights are just that bit more mature than the pages in the court cards. There is however still allot to learn at this stage and some of the knights might become overly confident. In other decks this card is represented by female Knights or a Princess. Modern decks change the genders of the court cards around to show that the role is not really based on gender, more on a developmental stage.

In the Crowley Tarot this card is shown by a Prince on a cart that is pulled along by a bull. This is the solid and stable way this Prince (Knight in the Rider Waite) is going about their business.

In the Celtic Dragon Tarot, the Knight is represented by a young female knight with her trusty dragon by her side.
