Discover what knight of pentacles tarot card symbolizes based on its upright and reversed positions.
Learn what each tarot card means in our tarot card meanings list.
The Knight of Pentacles covers the main elements of a hardworking knight: dedication, ambition and even introspection. Riding a black horse that’s almost perfectly still, one can imagine the knight looking into the distance, indicating an ambition to explore the great unknown.
The knight also has an aura of certainty, shown by his steely gaze into the pentacle, the glistening silver armor and the sunny background. His horse also isn’t to be underestimated: it is a tough animal clad in red armor and stout in its gait, indicating reliability.
Being also a knight, he is sure to lead himself and his horse to war without any hesitation or fear-- only a sense of duty. This is what gives him dedication.
Putting this into practical terms, it is clear why this card is a very appealing pick for you: it shows that you’re able to move forward with life. You have great companions who are willing to back you up should things prove too difficult.
You also wear the mark of ambition and preparation, as symbolized by the armor, and you can very well expect to reach your preferred destination with clarity, industry and courage, as nothing seems to be in the way.
The upright position indicates the prospect of work and the demand for rigor. Without a doubt, you’re a capable person able to ride into battle with glee, but whether or not you’re ready for the long haul is another question altogether.
While confidence in your abilities is certainly a powerful asset, your tarot reader will be sure to remind you that what truly gets anyone through life’s obstacles is grit. Just as a knight rides on a horse wearing full armor enduring the blazing heat of the sun, so must you work hard in order to get to your goals.
In terms of raw dedication, the Pentacular Knight in the upright position is among the best outcomes you can ever hope for. The Knight is fully clad in armor and is serene in his disposition, unlike the other Knights cards which seem to be just rushing into battle head-on.
This means that when the going gets tough, your partner is determined enough to stay in the relationship, even when the two of you are too busy to talk to one another. You and your partner are willing to do everything to keep the passion alive, and this card proves it.
Reciprocate this passionate and determined energy the best way that you could. This will be an excellent way to emphasize your commitment to your partner and even renew their faith in you and your relationship.
There will be a new challenge coming up your way soon, and it would help a lot if you and your partner prepare yourselves mentally and emotionally. Think of it as a test of how far the two of you will go for one another.
Needless to say, if you are decisive enough, things will go in your favor, further solidifying your relationship. You will never find a love like the one you have, so you better treasure it! The stronger your bond with your partner is, you can rest easy knowing that they will fight for you the way you would for them.
Keep it up, and you can be reassured that nothing will come in the way of your relationship.
Among all the Knight-class cards, the Pentacular Knight in the upright position appears the calmest and the most prepared-- with good reason! This is because the coin symbol also represents resources, while the knight’s steady disposition means you can be assured he won’t charge into battle without a plan. In real life, this translates to you possessing a lot of money and not using them all up with wanton abandon.
You know how to budget your money, as well as differentiating which things you need and which ones are just your wants. It wasn’t an easy task, but you managed, and now here you are, enjoying financial security and a well-thought-out roadmap for the foreseeable future.
When you go into battle, you always have a plan of attack, which makes you highly useful and desirable for positions and businesses of all sorts. This talent in strategizing will prove to be your greatest asset as you move along the hierarchy and gain higher positions and influence.
Because you know how to play your cards, promotions will be relatively easy for you to achieve, along with pay raises. If you are a business owner, you know how to make your business appealing to clients and stockholders.
Your insight, combined with your hard work and financial management skills, will be your key to achieving success. The career you have been building for so long will bear fruit, and your ultimate prize will be the comfortable, happy, and fulfilled life that you and your loved ones will be enjoying soon.
The other direction indicates recklessness and a need for proper pacing. Now, you are most likely a bold individual, able, willing and even happy to take great risks in order to get to your dreams.
This is certainly a good trait, sure, but know that there’s a difference between bravery and recklessness: bravery isn’t about just charging into battle, it’s about doing so methodically and judiciously. In life, you will need to charge with great preparation in order to meet challenges with the preparedness of a proud knight, for doing otherwise could certainly lead to horrible defeats.
Stay strong and be prepared.
In the reverse position, the Knight of Pentacles bodes poorly. It means irresponsibility has festered in your relationship, and that you and your partner may be taking things too liberally.
You may smoke too much, drink nonstop or only care about just satisfying your desires for the moment. You may be happy and even content now, but be warned if this is the case, because a relationship that relies on meaningless hedonism can not only affect your long-term health but even kill it much later when you find yourselves unable to meet long term plans because of financial difficulties.
It is time for you to change your ways and actively start working on yourself. If your relationship prompts you to abandon your health and well-being, then perhaps that relationship is not suitable for you, and you need to break it off ASAP.
Why? The answer is relatively simple: true love doesn’t make you abandon the best things for yourself. It will even encourage you to pursue what will make you happy for the long-term, not least of good health and financial stability.
If you and your partner have recognized the error in your ways and are willing to do things for the better, then perhaps, there is still hope for your relationship. With the right motivation, you and them can find ways to make yourselves, and to an extent, your bond healthier and for the long-term.
You will be able to grow together and move past your immaturities, precisely the way a romantic partnership should be.
You have gotten lost in either your lust for conquest or just the overall idea of constant war-- this is the message of the Pentacular Knight Card in Reverse, specifically for wealth Tarot readings. As of now, you’ve most likely just drained all your funds going after something that just wasn’t sustainable, making you broke, desperate, and even lonely.
This also means that you’re having burnout after stressing out for so long about work matters. Your mind is no longer as clear as it once was, which makes relaxation the absolute priority for you.
If there’s anything that you should do, you must take a break and take a long, good look at life. Reflect on your actions, and try to see all the things where you went wrong.
Then, as you go through it, try to see how you can improve on yourself. Slowly pick yourself up by planning things out, rather than heading to do them headfirst.
While being spontaneous can be fun, this is not the time for it as you are risking your stability and your future if ever you refuse to acknowledge that you have to do something about your mistakes. Doing things wrong is a normal part of life, but it is also essential that you grow up from all of it.
If you allow yourself to wallow in self-pity and your losses, then it will be harder for you to recover from everything that has happened and make your chances of comeback dimmer than before.
