“As Travel: Travel on foot, hiking, walking, cycling.

As Change and Movement: The Knight of Pentacles is the most opposite to the Air element of the Knights. This means that he is the least Knight-like. Not inclined to move or fight. On the positive, movement and changes will feel steady, as this Knight is very consistent. But Knights are supposed to be fast, and this Knight is plodding. It will seem like things are moving/changing at a crawl, and that those who should defend their positions and put up a fight are taking too long to do so.

As a Teen or ‘Teen-like’ Person: The Knight of Pentacles has all kinds of projects going, jobs on the side, and extra-curricular activities. He takes his work (or studies) very seriously, and is always looking ahead to the future. He likely has, in fact, long term plans, including what he wants to be, what he wants to do, down to getting married and having children. While this seems very positive, it can cause him problems when it comes to handling the unexpected or improvising. If he didn’t plan for it, he doesn’t know what to do about it.

Similarly, this Knight is uncomfortable standing out. While he wants to have the best that money can buy, he also wants to fit in. Thus, if every one of his peers must have a certain cell phone, he must have it as well. If he can afford the best of these, he will buy the best. If he can’t afford it, he will work at part-time jobs till he can afford it. While this gives him an amazing work ethic, it also makes him too reliant on material things to give him status, and may make him embarrassed if he doesn’t have enough.

This teen or teen-like person needs to have his own room or secret place, and woe to anyone who goes into that room or changes it in any way. The Knight pf Pentacles has his own organization system for everything, and a routine for keeping healthy. Not surprisingly, this teen can be far too solitary, too concerned with perfection, or earning a place of respect. Fear of failure or standing out may keep him from leaving his room. He needs to ‘lighten up.’

He values and protects beautiful things and is a loyal employee if treated right.” 3

“Meaning: Utility, serviceableness, interest, responsibility, rectitude. A useful man; useful discoveries.

Reversed: inertia, idleness, repose of that kinds, stagnation; also placidity, discouragement, carelessness. A brave man out of employment.” 1

Axank’s Dream Recollection

September 05-06, 2011
I recall three middle aged women who some how became trapped in a strangers house. The stranger(s) was not home. The house was quaint. The girls kept busy finding things to do until the resident got home so they could repay them (for what they had used in “surviving” as they were trapped), and finally leave the house. While painting their nails, it became the LAST straw for one of the girls. She snapped. She went to the front door and clawed and clawed until her fingers were bleeding and raw. But she did it. The door opened, and with blood gushing all over the doorway she escaped.

I also had a dream (or a portion of one) where some one challenged Ren & Stimpy to a toilet race. This consisted of riding the toilet bowl all the way down to the pipes, and back again (it was a looped track). I couldn’t tell you who won.
