Victorian Romantic Tarot (Baba Studios, 2012) is somewhat unusual.
At first glance, this
Knight of Pentacles shows a Knight in steel armour, nothing strange
there. And the autumnal woodland scene around him seems fairly
appropriate for the suit of Pentacles. Two details, though, surprise
Firstly, there is his broken lance. I guess this could
indicate his willingness to persevere despite setbacks, which suits the
Knight of Pentacles well.
Secondly, there is the maiden kissing
the Knight's hand, and the fact that his gaze is rather sad and
distant. This seems rather more like the Knight of Cups than the
traditional stalwart Pentacles chap. Maybe his gaze is distant because
he's actually thinking about how to source a new lance or noticing a
useful stream a little way into the woods :D
Dear One certainly has tinges of the Knight of Pentacles to him. He's
been organising window cleaners, carpet cleaners, curtain fitters and
various other tradesmen over the course of the week. So, I see this
card as a reminder to show him my appreciation today. These may not be
grand, romantic gestures, but they are his way of showing his caring.
I am grateful for a kind and practical man.
