From the Robin Wood deck

The second appearance of this comfort-loving King (he wears slippers in this deck, which I adore).

He is the Yang expression of a Yin element, so he uses his practical abilities in an active way. He’s good with his hands, and he actually gets things finished – what a delight for his Queen.

He is calm, determined, focused and, like King Midas, has a golden touch. Which means he has excellent judgment too, I suppose.

Scott, who got me through those dark days between John leaving me and me leaving the country – seems strange to make it sound so simple – was a Pentacles King and his good qualities were very good – nurturing, caring, protective, quietly strong and capable.

I salute him, and all positive expressions of the King of Pentacles.
