Weekly Tarot Card – 5 of Pentacles

Fives in Tarot signify conflict and change. They are midway between the ace and number ten, therefore halfway in the arc of the suit’s journey. Here we are midway in the journey of pentacles: material wealth, resources, earthly values.

A destitute couple trudge barefoot in a snowstorm. The man is on crutches and looks up to the heavens in defiance. The woman is bundled in rags and huddled over, eyes downcast. They are so caught up in their despair they don’t notice the illuminated pentacles in the stained glass window of the church at their side. Help is at hand if only they would lift their eyes from their despair to notice it.

When problems come they tend to take over our entire perspective and we get caught in a negative mindset. We go over the problem, how it started, how awful it is, how impossible it is to solve and we become closed off to any chance of awakening to a possible solution. If we don’t believe a problem can be solved then how can we ever be receptive to a solution?

These unfortunate souls in this picture remind us of the pitfalls of a scarcity consciousness. Times may be difficult and challenging. But sure as the Wheel of Fortune goes up and down, nothing lasts forever, there is always change, and even in the darkest night there is the light of the stars.

Weekly Tarot Card – The Tower

Lightning strikes the tower. The crown topples midst the fiery destruction. Two people jump from the burning building to escape peril. One has eyes faced forward, the other is looking up. Where will you look for succor when your world falls apart? Will you seek the earth or heaven? The universe deals us challenges for our growth and expansion. Sometimes these challenges are not so subtle. If you have been dealt a blow in your health, your relationships, your job, your spirits, reframe your fear and despair into one of gratitude so you can capture the lesson and the new knowledge for moving past your present predicament…forward into the light.

Weekly Tarot Card – The Star

AE4EDD2B-7884-4666-BA85-6A9904CFC691_1_201_aLook we’ve come through! After some trials and tribulations we have seen the light at the end of the tunnel. A beautiful maiden pours water into a refreshing pool and along the lush flower strewn landscape under a starry starry night. The eight-pointed star symbolizes regeneration, and the number 8 turned on its side is the infinity sign. This is a hopeful card for creativity, optimism, rebirth. May you be inspired this week and live in the light.

Weekly Tarot Card – The Star

Things in the world were looking pretty bleak and it was difficult to find a light at the end of the tunnel. Then this lovely card with its message of hope and inspiration filtered in to bring us off the ledge. How can we be like this beautiful woman, tending to her jugs of water which replenish the verdant landscape of flowers in the peace and calm of star shine? True, we are in a difficult time with six planets in retrograde, a worldwide pandemic, social unrest. But let us remember that the Star appears in the Tarot deck after the Tower where destruction and turmoil occur. We will emerge from the crisis with a new sense of self divinely inspired and energized with beneficial purpose for all. Follow the light and act in love.
