Meaning of the Knight of Pentacles in a Reading

Out of all the Knights in the Tarot Cards, the Knight of Pentacles is the most stable and secure. He is the only Knight not charging his horse forward in a rush! This Knight is seated on his steed; calm, still and grounded.

When it comes to the Court Cards in Suit of Pentacles, we can relate them to the astrological earth signs of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. The Court Cards often relate to people in our lives and the Knights are usually in young adulthood, between the ages of 18 to 30 years old. They can be either a man or a woman. Some tarot decks replace the Knights with Female figures.

The Knight of Pentacles can, therefore, represent someone that is one of these earth signs. Perhaps a young businessman or woman, someone we may be in a love relationship with or a business partnership. This person can be very grounded and stable, potentially with some money to invest in a property or business. Many Knights can indicate many people like this around us, especially in the longer Celtic Cross Reading.

Lastly, we may embody the energy of the Knight ourselves, too. We are calm, secure and ready to start a new business or property.
