Personality Profile, Card Imagery and Description
The Knight of Pentacles is of The Earth Element, but just like his fellow Knights, is also influenced by Fire. Thus we have a combination of the Elemental Energies of Earth and Fire within him. We find a predominant Knight of Pentacles with a dash of The Knight of Wands.
Earth influenced by Fire
Knights represent the Fiery Part of the Court Cards regardless of their Suit Element. Therefore The Knight of Pentacles represents the Fiery part of Earth. In The Knight of Pentacles we have Fire influencing Earth; actions influencing material or financial concerns. What this means is that this Knight is results oriented. The Knight of Pentacles does not indulge, or participate in senseless action. He does not waste his time on ridiculous or frivolous pursuits. He approaches his time as he does the rest of his resources. He must utilise them to their maximum potential and advantage.
Earth can get extremely heavy and bogged down if left to its own devices. Earth is constant and generally solid and reliable. We lay down foundations on Earth and develop roots that can last a lifetime and beyond. Sometimes these roots can pull on us too much, making it difficult to move as it draws us further down into its grasp. Earth holds us all together and gives us the yardstick by which we measure our tangible achievements, success and possessions. However, as essential as Earth is to us all, it can have extremes of effects on us.
With Earth as our stabilising foundation, we can all just about manage to build a roof over our heads, and forage in the wild for just enough to sustain us and clothe us. We can live off the land and be quite content with our lot. On the other hand, we can use the Earth to provide us with so much more. We can build great houses instead of hovels, farm the land so that it yields bountiful harvests to sustain us without worry of starvation, and properly use its natural resources to craft quality clothing to suit our environment. The difference between the two is Fire. Earth is there for any of us to utilise so that we may exist, but when we add Fire to the mix, great things can be achieved.
