Knight of Pentacles Reversed Meaning

The Knight of Pentacles in reverse meaning is one of lack. A lack of mindfulness and action abounds here. You want all the recognition without doing the work. You have beautiful dreams but no desire to take steps to get them. There is a part of you that thinks they are owed to you, so you do nothing, wondering why the world is not giving you your rewards. You are owed nothing that you have not created with your own hands. Get up and start working toward the goals you say you want. This could also represent a workaholic obsessed with material things, thinking that status makes them better than others. There are hard lessons to be learned.

Reversed Health

There are two extremes here that you could be embodying. On the one hand, you could be absolutely lazy, unable to take care of yourself, and fully aware that you are wasting away slowly. One or the other, you are so over the edge that you cannot see how hard you are working your body. Like anything, when pushed too hard, there is a possibility of breakdown or injury. You need to take action on either extreme. Either start the process of healthy eating and movement again or, if extreme, calm down and try some more soothing exercises like walking or yoga.

Reversed Love

When you find the Knight of Pentacles love reverse pulled, you need to reevaluate your commitments. There is dullness and boredom happening within the relationship. This could have led to infidelity. If you want to keep the partner, it is time to spice things up or try new activities together. If single, now is not the time to try to find commitment. Date casually and have fun, but be wary of wanting more as you may not find the partner you were hoping for.

Reversed Money and Career

Again, there is a possibility of extremes here. You may feel stuck in your career. You are indifferent to your goals and just living on replay from day to day. This is all of your own making. You are the only one that can pull yourself out of this rut. Within your career, do not attempt to take on responsibility unless you are committed to following through, as it will be massively detrimental if you let this ball drop. If you are the other side of the coin, you are working endlessly for the status gain, but you do not feel depth in it. You may have the money, cars, and prestige, but what you are really looking for with worthiness. This is not something you find in material things. You will need to learn this before you will be able to get off the hamster wheel. Financially, you are frivolous and make mindless purchases.
