(Applies to the upright position)

The Symbolism in the "Knight of Pentacles" Tarot Card:

The stern Knight holds his pentacle before him like a standard. Behind them, there is a fertile swathe of soil. He rides a black, austere looking horse. The sprig of vegetation emanating from his helmet, and the obvious tract of land, firmly tie him to the element of Earth. Unlike his counterparts, the Knight of Pentacles seems to be contemplating his next move before going anywhere.

The Meaning of the "Knight of Pentacles" Tarot Card:

The Knight is a committed individual who will unfailingly carry out any command given to him. The Knight is also ignorant of everything in his surroundings but the Pentacle, signifying that he is too focused on material goods at the expense of everything else. The Knight is efficient in any task he is given, but lacks the insight to lead others due to his excessive materialism.
