The Knight of Pentacles tarot card is the image of a gallant knight, decked out in a full suit of armor with a red cape trailing down his back and red leather gloves on his hands, sitting astride a noble black steed. They are so large the landscape around them looks miniaturized. The knight’s face is mostly obscured by his helmet, but he looks to his hands where he holds a pentacle.

Knight of Pentacles Tarot Card Meanings Reversed- Idleness, laziness, inertia, carelessness, discouragement, depression, greed, stubborn, impatience, boredom, hardship, irresponsibility, and timidity.
As opposed to what the upright card predicts, when upside down you’ll find your reading noting that you are feeling lazy, impatient, and bored these days. Unfortunately, just dreaming of the life you want will not get you any closer to having it. You must act or you won’t make any progress towards your goals. This card may also indicate a person who is acting in a disloyal and unreliable way. This behavior is not going to encourage close relationships or financial success so if it’s you, it’s time to change your direction. If it’s another person in your life, act with caution around them because at the very least you’re vulnerable to mimicking their behavior and at the very worst you’re likely to suffer damage from their actions.
Love & Relationships- The Knight of Pentacles when reversed brings bad omens to your love life. If you are in a relationship, you will feel bored and dissatisfied with your partner. This is possibly due to lack of time to focus on your relationship, a laidback lifestyle resulting in you acting more like roommates, disloyalty which breeds mistrust, or simply put, when either party becomes the “loser” type which leaves the partner lacking any romantic feelings. Remember that happiness is your choice and it is up to you to make life more interesting and positive. If you’re the one having problems feeling committed it’s time to listen to your partner’s concerns and address them in an actionable way. If your partner has become dissatisfied with your status in life or seems overcome with greed it may be time to see yourself out.
Money & Career- The Knight of Pentacles, reversed, shows that you have lost the drive to reach your goals. Career is no longer your focus and you do not have enthusiasm for much of anything any more. This is a big change for a person who has pursued their passions up to this point and highlights a larger issue at hand, which may be familial troubles or mental health changes such as depression. This card can also swing to the other end of the spectrum and show a workaholic who is basically putting every other aspect of life not the back burner all in pursuit of a dollar. Remember that more exists to life than your career and balance is the key to a fulfilling existence.
Health & Wellness- You need to prioritize yourself. It’s easy to fall into one of two extremes; either over managing your diet and exercise plan to point it’s become stressful or complete neglect of your daily health and wellness. Your hardship right now is finding the middle ground where you’re taking care of yourself in a reasonable and sustainable way. Try stress reducing activities such as getting out in the sun for 10 minutes in the morning and turning off the tv at least 30 minutes before bed.
Spirituality- Interestingly, in this case a reversed card has pretty much the same meaning as an upright card. You must take actionable steps towards achieving your dreams in order for them to manifest. Sometimes this card is called a “wish” or “dream” card because it focuses on the desires you hold deep inside- the wishes you would ask granted if you got a magic genie. However, event though genies don’t exist, magic does and whatever you’re putting out into the universe right now will be magnified by this card. If you put out complacency and laziness and inertia, your dreams will remain figments of your imagination. If you put out effort and take even small steps towards your dreams, you will see more opportunities open to you than you could have imagined.
