The Knight of Pentacles is focused and hard-working but can tend to be dull and stubborn. He may be a young man who is an Earth sign; a Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn directly affecting the current situation today. Likewise, affecting today’s situation is the Page of Swords who could be a young person or child that is bright and curious with a keen and incisive intellect but not much concern for the feelings of others. Swords is the mental realm so this person could be an Air sign; a Gemini, Libra or Aquarius. However, the last card in this spread is the 8 of Pentacles reversed, so beware since it represents wasted efforts, scattered energies, tedium, stagnation and maybe even dishonest money dealings.
If this spread is reflecting conditions at your job today; the Knight could be your boss and he’s relentlessly focused on the bottom-line while the Page could be a co-worker or a subordinate who may be spying on you and spreading rumors or gossip behind your back which hampers your effectiveness at getting things done today. Another scenario could be that the Page is a child and the Knight a salesperson and both are pressuring you into a bad purchase decision. So, look out today as others don’t seem to have your best interests at heart. I see selfish motivations and bad actors with these two characters. It’s not a good day to make investments that could turn out to be just pyramid schemes. On the other hand, if these characters symbolize you today, it looks like despite your best efforts and ideas, you won’t be very productive and work will be tedious at best.
