OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – Knight of Pentacles

Today’s card is the Knight of Pentacles.

The knight is atop their black horse, wearing blued armor, and holding a pentacle before them. Their horse is especially strong and slow, and is loaded to bear.

The Knight of Pentacles knows what they want, and knows how to get it: Cold hard cash. They are careful, meticulous, and ensure that no detail is left unchecked in their quest for material wealth. This can be a downside to their quest, as their single-minded devotion to their own success can drive away others; it is doubtful the Knight minds much. Anything that gets in their way of becoming number one is just something to be plowed through.

OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – Three of Pentacles

Today’s card is the Three of Pentacles.

A mason finishes their work – three engraved pentacles in an arch – as two others look on. One in an ornate robe holds the plans for this archway, and the other, a monk, simply observes.

Labor is a reoccurring theme in the suit of Pentacles, and the Three of Pentacles is one of several cards that depict the process of creation. This card represents the finished product of hard work, especially work that requires a great amount of practice. Talent is nothing compared to good, hard work, and the Three of Pentacles shows what can be reaped from applying yourself.

The Three of Pentacles is an unusual card, because it’s the only card in the deck where the symbol of the suit is in a different color than the other cards of its kind. Instead of being rendered in gold, the three pentacles are carved from stone. What this represents, if anything, is unknown to me.

OCCULT: Daily Draw – King of Pentacles

Today’s card is the King of Pentacles.

The King of Pentacles sits on his throne, resplendent, with one foot resting on a rock. His throne is adorned with bulls’ heads; in one hand, he holds the pentacle, and a scepter in the other. His throne is surrounded by vines.

The King of Pentacles is the ultimate end goal in life satisfaction. Rich, well-to-do, and having found his place in life, the king almost looks bored with his status. Though the fruits of labor are certainly worth laboring for, one might find that life gets lonely at the top.

To note, this now the third pentacle card I’ve drawn – and the second court card. If I draw another court pentacle card I’m going to freak out.

OCCULT: Daily Draw – Ace of Pentacles

Today’s card is the Ace of Pentacles.

The Ace of Pentacles, like the other four minor aces, shows a hand emanating from a cloud holding the icon of the suit.

The Ace of Pentacles is the culmination of its suit, and represents all things of it: money, family, happiness, and being down-to-earth. The pentacles are a suit that focuses on the material world, and the ability to keep what you have inside it. How are you doing, money-wise? Are you making sure you don’t spend too much?

OCCULT: Daily Draw – Queen of Pentacles

Today’s card is the Queen of Pentacles.

This Queen typically suggests a dark and serious woman, whose intelligence has lead her to her lofty position. She examines a pentacle in her hands, carefully contemplating its essence.

The Queen of Pentacles signifies the intelligence it takes to acquire what you both want and need. By never becoming complacent with what you have, you’ll always be able to find what you really need in life. Always be critical of your surroundings, your belongings, and your self.
