Son of Pentacles Tarot Card Meanings in the Wild Unknown
The Son of Pentacles leans into the card, pressing forward slowly but surely. An orange crescent moon frames a pentacle above him. The background is dark, but lightens where he gazes.
The Son of Pentacles is not one to act with great haste or passion. He is purposeful and careful in all that he does. Once he has decided to move in a given direction, that is simply where he goes. He sticks the course and slugs through the mud to reach his goals. He doesn’t always trust easily, but if someone does earn his trust, he stands by them without fail.
On the positive side, this attention to detail can be essential. The Son of Pentacles is thorough and has unparalleled determination to finish what he starts. On the negative side, he can fall prone to tunnel vision.
Unlike the Daughter of Pentacles, who looked out with a straightforward gaze, the Son of Pentacles is looking down at his chosen path. He is so resolute in his endeavors that he may forget to look up and assess his current surroundings. He may have a difficult time with changes and flexibility.
Knight of Pentacles Tarot Card Meanings in General
In most decks, this card is titled the Knight of Pentacles. As a court card, this card may represent an aspect of your own personality, a person in your life, or a specific approach to life. For a more detailed explanation, check out this post I wrote all about how to read court cards.
The knight/son is the metaphoric ‘teenager’ of the courts. As such, he is prone to swing between extremes as he interacts with his suit’s energy. For example, the Knight of Pentacles pays incredible attention to detail… but he may struggle to see the forest for the trees, so to speak. He is committed to his path, but may become very frustrated if things don’t go according to plan.
In a reading…
This card may ask you to consider how you’ve been approaching a given situation. It could be necessary to call upon your work ethic, your willingness to assess reality and act accordingly. If you want concrete results, you’ve got to take useful action. Just make sure you’re not obsessing with tiny details to the detriment of seeing the big picture!
