Knowing my value
I take action to expand,
Sowing seeds for growth
The entire suit of Pentacles is one big farming metaphor, as far as I am concerned. Everytime a pentacle shows up in a reading, or in a question from a student, or as a writing prompt, there’s always a “seed planted” or “growing crops” or “full harvest” in the response. After decades working with the tarot, it’s not even a conscious construction anymore.
The symbolism is firmly planted within me.
(See what I did there?)
The metaphor has taken root.
Its resonance blossoms to feed every interpretation.
(I could do this all day.)
Sorry. That’s my literarily-inclined Page of Swords aspect showing off, with her love of puns and word-play. I need to get out of the weeds and back to hoeing my metaphorical fields, Knight of Pentacles style.
Stay symbolic, my friends.
Until next time.
