“Slow steady progress is better than fast, daily excuses.” Robin Sharma
The beloved children’s story of Aesop’s fable, “The Tortoise and the Hare” reminds us that slow and steady wins the race. Being the slowest knight in the deck, the knight of pentacles is not known for speed, but rather for results. The message is accomplishment through diligence and persevering effort that gradually yields tangible results. Today, you may endeavor to improve your finances or provide a practical service through hard work. In fact, there may be some unexpected sources of income or something that provides greater security for you on the immediate horizon. An effort to take a sensible and prudent course for managing your resources could mean contact with accountants, managers, developers, trade or craftspersons. The details are in focus and you may be hammering away at plans that provide for a more stable future. It’s likely that you will review the habits and patterns that have a direct impact on your finances, health or emotional well-being. This knight’s tie to the earth may also inspire you to connect with nature through gardening, working with your hands or caring for animals.
Emotional security is paramount and issues of loyalty, faithfulness, and devotion may be highlighted. You may be involved in a secret love affair or at least seeking an opportunity that leads to better romantic or social prospects. There is a desire for established relationships that will stand the test of time, but in some cases, physical involvement may be stressful or confusing.
Although the knight of pentacles is solid and reliable, imagination is not his forte. He tends to cautiously stick with the familiar and the safe. His influence may dampen the enthusiasm for an idea, plan or concept. Negatively, you may be dealing with the dull or the dim-witted. Someone may pull you into a risky or dishonest financial transaction or bad debt. There may be a lack of accountability where the unwanted effects of actions are blamed on others. Perhaps you end up blindly chasing after success or involved in a power struggle over money.
Today, haste makes waste. Slow and steady wins the race.
