Knight of Pentacles
My self-study of Tarot continues with the Knight of Pentacles. Or, as I just heard, “Spreading the wealth.”
Stately; steady; strong; solid; “in the black”; “Money is like manure; it’s not worth a thing unless it’s spread around encouraging young things to grow.” ~Thornton Wilder; solvent; fertile or virile.
Pentacle, horse, plowed fields, hills, trees, grass, plumes.
Those green plumes adorning the horse and the knight remind me of a plant; something growing. They seem emblematic of what the tone of this card feels to me.
Gold, yellow, green, red, black, rust/orange, silver, gray, blue, purple, pink, brown, white.
It’s the verdant green of the plumes and the grass and even the distant hills or mountains that seems most in tune with the interpretation rising from this card.

Well… I see a wee bit of what I feel this card represents.
