Page of Pentacles

Page of Pentacles

The Page of Pentacles is also known as the Princess of the Echoing Hills and Rose of the Palace of Earth. It represents the early energy of manifestation, waiting and gestation of material results. Pages bring new energy into the Suit they are placed in, and with this one this would indicate the energy of substance, tangible results, finances, property and growth. So this card may point to a new budget you are setting up, early gains in an investment or small windfalls that could be saved to grow into something bigger. Things brings enthusiasm and excitement into your life when you realise that the accumulation and appreciation of life’s comforts is its own reward. This card invites you to get comfortable with your finances and your ability to grow your resources. This may be a new idea, or else you will find a new way to increase your material assets. Pages bring messages and experiences from outside to your door, and their purpose is to initiate you into a new phase and new way of dealing with your world. One side of this card is that you will receive news of a modest windfall that will delight you – the other side of this is that you may fritter money away in a childish way, without giving it a chance to mature and grow. While the Page of Pentacles can indicate money coming to you, it is yet a new and delicate thing and a need to balance your material resources must still be catered to. And of course the Page of Pentacles can also indicate a young person –...
Knight of Pentacles

Knight of Pentacles

The Knight of Pentacles is the Lord of the Wild and Fertile Land and King of the Spirits of Earth. He brings in the Earth energies found in the astrological signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn and represents material progress, sense orientation and productivity. The Knight of Pentacles is the only Knight usually depicted in the Tarot as not in motion – he is more slow moving and steady than the other Knights, neither headstrong or flighty, but cautious, sensible and reliable. He may be a little dull to those who are looking for excitement and variety, but ultimately he is someone who can be trusted to be there for the long haul. The Knights of the Tarot bring movement towards one’s desires, and there is always something coming your way when you see them in a reading. Its just that the change that is coming with the Knight of Pentacles is practical, useful and not at all what one would associate with adventure, as with the other Knights. There is also an indication when this Knight appears to look after matters of health. It is your opportunity to make a positive change where your health is concerned, and it means you need to take action towards healing and recovery. The Knight of Pentacles asks you to look at where you need to face responsibilities in your life, where you need to be dependable, reliable and true to your word. The long term effects of decisions you make now may not be apparent, and yet they will make themselves known in time so it is advisable to keep your future happiness...
Knight of Pentacles

Knight of Pentacles

The Knight of Pentacles is also referred to as the Lord of the Wild and Fertile Land and the King of the Spirits of Earth and represents steadiness, masculine sensuality and honesty. He is stoical, steady and slow to action but is very grounded and practical. Knights are about movement and progress and while the Knight of Pentacles appears to be not moving as quickly as the other Suits, move he does. This means that he is more considered and deliberate in the movements that he brings to you, so any movement is well-considered and therefore more successful and long-standing. As  person he is ambitious, thoughtful and patient and leans towards the conservative. He knows that anything worth doing is worth doing properly and so will take his time about any enterprise he sets his sights on. He may be considered somewhat dull compared to the fiery Knight of Wands or the flashy Knight of Swords, but he is in it for the long haul and his quiet exterior hides a smouldering passionate nature that has much stamina. On an abstract level he represents goals, plans and practical actions that need to bring any dream into the physical realm. He also represents the body and health, and when he appears in a reading is a sign that one needs to pay particular attention to diet, exercise and healthy habits, particularly the reduction of stress. Since the Pentacles refer to the material realm he can also herald positive changes to one’s investments and securities, and he always counsels caution in with money and other material resources. It is time to...
Knight of Pentacles

Knight of Pentacles

Known also as the Lord of the Wild and Fertile Land and King of the Spirits of Earth and represents steadiness, patience, diligence and protectiveness. The Knight of Pentacles is practical – he represents the physical actions that you must take to materialise your ideas. The suit of Pentacles is of Earth (matter) and the Knight brings Fire (action) to the equation. Without action on the material plane, ideas remain ideas and do not have the benefit of manifestation. As this Knight is of the Earth, he also can represent one’s health, or physicality. Taking actions towards improving and maintaining one’s health is important. Often the Knight of Pentacles is depicted as the only Knight whose horse is not in motion – but I have also seen many that are. Knights are always about movement, the Knight of Pentacles just moves more slowly and deliberately than the others. He is not driven by passion, emotion or ideas, but by creating a legacy that will withstand the test of time. He is not in a hurry, as perhaps are the other Knights/ When he comes up in a reading for you, he is here to tell you that it is time to put your considered plans into action, to take responsibility for building something that is designed to last a long time, and to take care and time to do it.  He says that anything worth doing is worth doing well. The Knight can also appear in your life as a young man, studious, steady, serious, perhaps a little bit boring, but he is reliable and will not let you down. The...
Four of Pentacles

Four of Pentacles

The Four of Pentacles is the Lord of Earthly Power and is aligned with Sun in Capricorn. It represents responsibility, power and mastery of the material world. Fours also represent foundations and manifestation of the energy contained in the Suit. Since this is the Suit of Pentacles, then this card brings material manifestation and the ability to create resources and create financial stability which leads to growth. The warning with this card is to not grasp too tightly to those resources you have accumulated. In order to maximise the potential of material prosperity, it is necessary to circulate and not hoard the energy. For example, money likes to be put to use – whether through investing in projects that have the ability to expand, or by investing and being put to work in this way. The same way that a garden must be tended and pruned and harvested, so must money and resources be tended and used. If you put your money under the mattress, then it has no opportunity to grow but instead will stagnate and not benefit anyone. When the question refers to work or career, there is an increase in responsibility, remuneration and also pressure to perform. If you feel secure in your abilities and certain that you have come into a maturation of your power, then you will thrive and are forming a base from which to launch your ambitions and abilities even higher. But if you feel that you came into this elevation of position as a stroke of luck or a fluke, then your own doubts will not allow the foundation to hold...
