Knight of Pentacles Tarot Card Description
In the Rider Waite Deck, the Knight is seen sitting still as a statue on a heavy horse, holding up a golden coin in his right hand. He wears a full armour and faces right toward the East, at the rising sun. A shrub growing from his helmet suggests how slow he is in making a move as he always thinks before he acts. A broad field is seen in the background that has been meticulously ploughed row by row(symbolising diligence and hard work).
Of all the four knights, he is the most mature.
