75-Prince of Disks – Reversed Thoth Deck

Your Chosen Card – Prince of Disks Reversed Thoth Deck

When reversed, the Knight of Pentacles plods along in a dull and idle manner. He may be quite lazy and inflexible in his thinking, and he is almost certainly emotionally obtuse. His rigidity and lack of motivation may cause him to stagnate rather than move forward on his life course. Alternatively, he may be so focused on work and material security that he neglects his emotional commitments and other aspects of his life.
