The Knight of Pentacles stares out at us from under a very fancy hat, with huge plumes coming from the multi-hued top. His tunic echoes the same yellow, orange, brown and black colours. One of the interesting things about the Knights is the fact that they don't have legs - just their armour arrayed beneath them. It reminds me of the Legacy of the Divine Tarot (Ciro Marchetti), where the Knights are just represented by their helmet. A statement about the importance of their rank and role to their sense of self!
This Knight has a shield with a cross in the centre, a lady under a waxing crescent moon and stars on one side, and a bear on the other. He also holds a coin with a laurel-wreathed head on it. So, he values wealth and honour, strength and also spirit :)
All those things take some perseverance, which is one of the traditional aspects of this Knight.
Hopefully, I will be able to draw on some of that strength and perseverance today. With Christmas and several work deadlines looming, as well as a business trip mid-week, and a course next weekend, I have a lot on my plate. So, better go get to it :)
I am grateful for the ability to get things done, one step at a time.
