Rider Waite Smith Five of Pentacles Tarot Card Meaning

Knight of Wands


Intense, no? This card brings with it the force of ideas brought into action. You can almost feel the wind in your face when you gaze into the image, and indeed the Knight of Swords moves quickly, using their intellect and deep conviction as a guide. What ideas, though, are behind their actions? Sometime this can brings clarity and conviction, and sometimes it heralds rash and hurtful decisions. The quality of the ideas decide the quality of the action.


A youthful character who fixates on the intellect over the emotional. Often academically oriented or self-directed, they live by their rationality and aren't shy about sharing their ideas with others.


Hyper-rational and concerned with arguments, reason, and values, Knight of Swords people are hard-edged, articulate, and convincing. They can get carried away with their ideas, however, and lose touch with the real world, especially the feelings and intentions of those around them. Great debaters and advocates, these people are the first on the scene when injustice occurs and believes in the importance or order, laws, and authority. Unless it goes against their interests, of course!
