The Knight of Pentacles is a stable Knight. He doesn’t ride his horse at full speed and charge with passion like The Knight of Wands, he isn't a romantic heartbreaker like the Knight of Cups and he isn't dangerous like the Knight of Swords. He’s practical and he's dependable, somewhat humorless. He represents goals, personal convictions and good old fashioned work ethic. All of those things promise a certain satisfaction, but in the end… they can be kind of boring.
Practical and dependable are appealing but they can also be uninteresting. Excitement and drama are interesting but they can also be exhausting, and herein lies our conundrum for the week. We long for quiet and peace. We want to get organized and “get our shit together”. We want relaxation and contentment but when we finally get to those places, monotony sets in, and our dedication to “right living” becomes tedious. That’s when we start to look over the shoulder of that Knight of Pentacles standing at our door. We begin searching for some action, something passionate with a little splash of danger.
So how can you balance your very real world need for responsibility, caution and practicality with the very real world need for commotion, drama and stimulation?
That’s the question. Any time a Knight shows up in the reading he asks you to look to the polarities in a situation so that you can find the balance. If you’re being overly dramatic (moody, confused or overwhelmed) can you bring in some logic and practicality? If you're being overly rigid (stubborn, obsessive, pessimistic) can you bring in some passion and adventure?
Can you set yourself up with the stamina you need to make it comfortable (the task, the relationship etc) and at the same time, ensure that it contains the excitement you need to keep it interesting?
