Work comes first. Always has and always will. Since he or she was a serious, studious little Page, this deliberate, slow and sometimes downright dull and heavy Knight of Earth (Taurus/Virgo/Capricorn) has known where he or she has wanted to go in life and like the tortoise, who is shown on this persistent and patient Knight’s shield in the medieval Luigi Scapini deck, doesn’t care how long it takes to get there. Nothing fancy, just a comfortable burrow, a nap, something tasty and nourishing every year and then he’ll do it all over again. They live a long time, those little dinosaurs. This Knight probably won’t change his routine one iota even when he is finally King (or Queen) which you know he will be someday.
We’re talking about all things physical once again: work, income, gas in the car. Nothing flashy, just the basics. This Knight probably has a job a lot of people would consider tedious and repetitive, but he believes in the value of self-regulation, as predictable and dull as that can be. He will because of his hard work, attention to detail, dependability and reliability always be valuable and in demand and his name respected. He is the only Knight the King would trust with his money, the Royal Bookkeeper.
This guy’s a saver, since I don’t want to come straight out and call him a penny-pincher. He is money-driven, that’s true, but that’s the guy you need as an investment banker or the financial manager of your company. He’d be a great asset to a passionate, fiery partner like a Leo, Sag or Aries. He’d be a great manager for an emotional, moody artist or any creative type the of the suit of Water: Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces all benefit from his grounding, practical energy. His discipline and dedication to regimen, rehearsal and refinement could be a very good influence. Air signs could learn some things from this down to earth Knight who patiently tolerates his boss’ sometimes abrasive tongue and manner – just give him his check and he’ll be off on his usual route home.
They say if there’s a race, slow and steady always wins.
