  • Patience

The traditional Knight of Pentacles tarot card shows a solidly built knight sitting on top of a solidly built horse. He is holding a pentacle in his hand and there are oak leaves adorning his helmet. In this deck, the turtle represents patience.

The Knight of Pentacles is the least “Prince Charming” of all the Knight court cards. He’s a bit plodding and way too solidly focused to offer up much in the way of romance. (Don’t forget he’s an earthy card, though, so he’s got serious physical skills, even if it isn’t his focus)!

Like all of the court cards, the Knight of Pentacles can represent an actual person in your life, a role you play (or need to play), or a message you are ready to hear.

If it’s an actual person, the card specifically represents someone hard-working who is patient and methodical. This person may love nature and take good care of their body, but probably is uncomfortable with strong emotions.

If this card doesn’t represent an actual person, the lessons are about teaching yourself (or others) how to work hard and complete projects. This is a “nose to the grindstone” message. It’s not very sexy, but it is effective!

Occasionally, this card means a job offer or travel by land.
