Today’s card: Knight of Pentacles

image

A knight in full armor sits atop a plough/work horse. He is holding a single gold pentacle coin. On the ground behind him we see the rows of a plugged field. There’s a yellow sky,suggesting dawn or morning.

This could be considered a companion to Temperance, which suggests balance and moderation. Here we see that the major work has been done.  The knight is a soldier. He’s used to giving and taking orders. He is also accustomed to diligence, routine, and being methodical.

We need to continue and see the work to completion.

Today’s card: VIII of Pentacles

image

A young man sits on a workbench cutting a pentagram into the surface of a pentacle coin. On the ground is a pentacle he just completed, and on a post he has six others hung, as if for sale. In the distance to the left is a castle, and there’s a grey sky.

Grey skies always speak to me of a time of preparation. Getting things ready. Not exactly a fun time or a time of celebration. Have patience. Focus on the task and the customers will come.
