Knight of Pentacles Tarot Card Meanings
All the Knights represent an action or event of some description. Remembering our Royal Court, the bold Knights were action-orientated, serving the Kings and Queens to defend the realm or sent on quests and crusades.
The Knights can represent adolescence, although in readings I find it’s easier to focus upon the Pages as minors, then Kings and Queens as mature adults.
The Knight of Pentacles appears to be stood still with the grass growing around the horse’s feet, suggesting slow movement. The rabbit in the corner of the image reminds me of the children’s story of the tortoise and the hare, slow and steady wins the race. It represents a situation that has gone on for a long while but his arrival in a reading also indicates that results are finally forthcoming, although this can be for good or bad, depending upon surrounding cards.
For those that read the Courts as facets of character, the Knight of Pentacles is dependable, works through things thoroughly and doesn’t cut corners along the way.
Similar or supporting cards: All the Knights represent action and movement, although the Knight of Pentacles is a much slower energy, in this regard, slow moving cards such as, The Hermit, The Hanging Man, Two of Swords.
Opposing or contradictory cards: Knight of Swords (chaotic speed), Eight of Wands (swift movement, news arriving quickly).
Tarot Card Combinations: Useful in terms of timing as this card doesn’t move things along quickly, but also in identifying a long-standing ongoing situation.
Multiple Knights show plenty of action and lots happening, usually with speed.
