Fading resources

Affect body and spirit,

Time to ask for help.

Haiku for the Knight of Pentacles

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.

(And again!)

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.

Safe in my garden

The scent of fresh bread lingers

while I take a break.

The Nine of Pentacles reflects a feeling of security that comes after the hard work has been put in and mastery has been attained. It speaks to a phase when one is comfortable in their own skin and no longer seeks external validation. It suggests one already knows his/her own talents and gifts after years of experience and effort. This is not about resting on one’s laurels, but it’s about having earned some time to devote to self care.

When this card appears in a spread, it suggests a time to acknowledge your successes and make time for a little self care. It’s a good time to indulge in a decadent restaurant meal, learn a new craft or hobby for fun, or read for pleasure.

Meditate on the themes in this card to support in your own worth, to acknowledge both the talents you were born with and the skills you have mastered, and to own a sense of security in your accomplishments so far.
