“It’s good to be the king!” The smugness of the Knight of Pentacles is only outclassed by the man who invented smugness.

Truly, the only thing better than being young, handsome, and wealthy (for a man) is to be young, handsome, wealthy, and in charge.

The man before you has no problems with his wealth; no problems with how he got his money, and no problems with how he uses it to get what he wants.

The King of Pentacles card shows us that wealth and power may not be everything in life, but that they sure go a long way in the eyes of one who knows how to enjoy, and enforce his will through, them.
