Self-Care with Knight of Pentacles

Welcome to Self-Care with tarot! Each week we will go over one tarot card and explore how it can be used to inspire a self-care activity for the week. This week is the Knight of Pentacles.

Introduction and Meaning of the Card


If you haven’t already, you can explore the basic meaning of this card here, from my Exploring Tarot series, and you can explore the emotional meaning here, from my Emotional Tarot series.

With that said, in the context of self-care, I take this card to mean that there is a need to be mindful of the balance between your ego and your productivity.

My Suggested Self-Care Activity for the Week

Based on the meaning of this card, the activity I would suggest to try doing each day until next Wednesday is to track in your journal how busy you are and why. Also pay attention to how your activity levels honestly makes you feel.

Are you doing what you’re doing because you feel like you have to? Why do you feel that way? Does it serve a purpose for you in the long run? Does it make you feel good in any way? Why does it make you feel good? If you are feeling overwhelmed with your daily schedule right now, which activities can you remove from your life?

Remember, being exhausted and worn out to the bone is not a badge of honor that any of us need to be wearing. Not when it comes at the cost of our well-being.
