I am going to start weekly 3 card draws….
The Knight of Pentacles shows that you are a natural planner and implementer. You envision your goal, determine the best course of action, and then stick to your path with a methodical and relentless focus. When you are in ‘implementation mode’, the job will get done, even if it requires hard work along the way. Meticulous in your approach, you make sure that everything is planned and executed down to the tiniest detail. And you will never leave a job half done. It is essential to you that you complete all assigned tasks and projects to a certain standard and that you follow through on your promises.
This is a hardworking card. The Knight of Pentacles is someone who knows that the road ahead is hard, and quietly gets on with it.
The energy here is steady, perhaps even slow. It’s about facing each challenge as it comes up, practice and diligence, being prepared to fall off – and then climb back upon – the horse, perhaps many times. This is a person you can rely on to see things through, the friend that may not be the most fun at parties, but who you know you can lean on.
As the ‘teenager’ of this suit, the Knight of Pentacles throws themselves into their studies with complete commitment. All of the knights have a touch of the obsessive about them – here, that is about determined pursuit of a goal. But the Knight of Pentacles is a little wiser than the other knights – there’s an awareness here of the journey ahead, and knowledge that it will take a lot of hard work to get through it.
Still, as a gung-ho teen, this knight does not have everything figured out. As such, this card can represent directing our focus in the wrong direction. If that speaks to you, press pause for a moment and carefully evaluate your goals.
This is the kind of energy we need to draw on when we are in something for the long haul. This is where we learn and practice stamina, where we discover what commitment looks like in practice. It’s not always easy, of flashy, or fun. Sometimes it’s just about getting our heads down and working through this thing, one step at a time.
The Knight of Pentacles, like all knights, wants a little less talk and a lot more action.
When he appears in a reading, commitment to a cause or relationship is in question. A step up from the Page of Pentacles, this cavalryman is just as dedicated but much more mature and experienced.
As with all cards, there are two sides to the Knight of Pentacles. Determined and consistent, he can also be stubborn and pessimistic. Don’t give in to this feeling.
If you are growing tired or overwhelmed by the daily grind, keep pushing. Improved prosperity is near.
The empress is the loving mother. The caring, forgiving and patient mother, she cuddles her baby kitten with joy and hope. This card is so wholesome. When you are in tune with the energy of The Empress, you will naturally take on her mothering nature. You feel a strong urge to nurture and care for others, from a place of loving compassion and support. You see it as a gift and an honor to tend to others, and in doing so you, too, receive benefit. In a more literal sense, you may step into the role of ‘mother’, perhaps as the mother of a newborn, caretaker of other people’s children, or spending more quality time with your kids. Or even parenting the child within yourself.
The Empress signifies a strong connection with our femininity. Femininity translates in many ways – elegance, sensuality, fertility, creative expression, nurturing – and is necessary for creating balance in both men and women. The Empress calls on you to connect with your feminine energy. Create beauty in your life. Connect with your senses through taste, touch, sound, smell and sight. Draw on these senses to experience pleasure and deep fulfilment. Treat yourself to a day spa, learn massage, enjoy a fine restaurant or spend more time with your partner. Discover different approaches to expressing yourself creatively, be it through painting, music, drama or other art forms. This may be the perfect chance to take up a new hobby that enables you to access this part of yourself.
The Empress signifies abundance. You are surrounded by life’s pleasures and luxuries and have everything you need to live a comfortable lifestyle. You are in a period of growth, in which all you have dreamed of is now coming to fruition. When The Empress appears in your Tarot readings, take a moment to reflect on the bounty that surrounds you and offer gratitude for all you have created so you can continue to build on this energy and create even more abundance in your life.
As the Mother Earth archetype, The Empress urges you to venture out into nature to ground your energy and be in flow with the earth. Take a trip to your favorite natural setting, be it a forest, beach, mountain or lake, and sit for a couple of minutes, hours or even days to breathe in the energy that surrounds you while marveling in the beauty of your surroundings. Allow yourself the time and the space to enter a different frame of mind and receive the grounding spirit of nature into your heart and consciousness. When you do this, you can reach higher planes of consciousness.
This Empress personifies the impulse to nurture and nourish. This is fertility and growth. This is the ability to plant a seed and give it all that it needs until it becomes a plant or a tree, producing seeds of its own. It is nature, feeding us. It is us, feeding nature. It is cycles of life and death and rebirth. It is a celebration of all that surrounds us, rolling in fields of golden barley, soaking up the abundance of it all. This is unstoppable, flowing life-force.
This card is all about care. Self-care, and care for others. Compassion. Kindness. It is making sure your own needs are met, and meeting the needs of others. It is a dear friend showing you support. It is the careful creation of safe spaces. Creating nourishing space. Bringing people together and encouraging them to grow together.
There is radical self-acceptance here, the willingness to be in your own skin and allow others the same freedom. Empress says: “I am here and I love myself. I belong here. There is space for me here. There is space for you, too.”
This is also sensuality, sexuality, body-love, body freedom. Skinny dipping. Strutting your stuff. Wearing what you want. Tenderly enjoying the body that you have, its unique beauties, its strengths, its limits. Working towards a healthy relationship with your physicality, playing with it, trying new things.
He has all the confidence (not arrogance!) and swagger due to his immense success. He has created a nice life for himself: financial abundance, job security with a solid title, and a lovely home with all the domestic luxuries that exude ease and comfort, like high-thread-count sheets and light dimmers that are controlled via an iPad.
Not only has he maintained his own wealth, but he wants to help you do that for yourself as well. Everything he touches turns to gold because he knows a good investment opportunity when he sees one. All he wants is for YOU to succeed in all you do, bb. When you see this card in a reading, know that the King of Pentacles is encouraging your talents and abilities so you can create the life you love as well. If you need a little extra cash, an introduction to one of his connections, or wise advice, he’s got you.
The arrival of the King of Pentacles indicates that you can translate your vision into something tangible, practical, and often very lucrative. You are the ultimate business owner. You do not merely come up with ideas and hope for the best – you work hard to map out your plan of attack, gather your resources and manifest your goals, often with tremendous success. You are like King Midas: everything you touch turns to gold. When you apply yourself to your vision, you create huge success, particularly on a financial level. Money flows easily and abundantly to you, and as you sit at the pinnacle of your economic power and influence, you can rest assured of your continued prosperity. You no longer struggle to achieve what you desire, like the Page and the Knight, nor do you have any need to prove yourself.
Here is a person who has achieved great things. Someone wealthy, whether that means materially rich, or simply very comfortable in their own life. This person has all that they need.
Implicit in this vision of success is a lot of hard work. The King of Pentacles is not someone who has simply happened upon great fortune, but who has worked for many years. They have been through the many trials of the suit of pentacles, the ups and the downs. They have been both the Page and the Knight of Pentacles, an eager explorer, and a dedicated worker.
Kings tend to derive power from structures. The King of Pentacles values order and logic, opts for quality over quantity, has an eye for things that will last. In this sense, this person may also be quite conservative, strongly prizing tradition. In many ways, this card is a lot like the Emperor.
This card represents a great sense of achievement. It may point to a comfortable home, reaching a happy place with your body, a job you love, or other high points of this earthy suit. This is a time to feel satisfied.
It’s also about generosity. When you have this much, what will you do with it? See to your own needs, of course – the King of Pentacles is adept at self-care – but what extra you have, you can share. The King of Pentacles opens their home to people they trust and care about, sharing their resources kindly and with love.
Beyond this, like all kings, this person may be a leader. Someone who holds a degree of status in society, someone who all can see has ‘made it’, and who – in the best expression of this card – helps others to do the same. The King of Pentacles asks us to look at how we use this kind of power in our lives – for self-advancement, or for the benefit of wider society?
