Please let me know if I posted this in the wrong area.
I wanted to share this morning’s Tarot experience as it was rather meaningful for me.
For today’s daily Tarot card draw, my only question to my deck is “help me better understand you.” I am not doing any divination and not even asking a “what shall I pay attention to today” kind of question.
The card I draw was the 5 of Pentacles, which can mean being alone or outcast or simply being impoverished. Since this card is a pentacle, I usually associate the card with the latter, with having a lack of physical or monetary resources.
As always, my heart grew heavy when I saw the card. I may not be performing a reading about future possibilities, but the cards are always relevant.
After pondering the card to better understand its symbolism and then going on with my day, the message of the card dawned on me. Today’s 5 of Pentacles isn’t telling me what will happen regarding my job next week, but it is perhaps advising me that this is how I see myself, despite reality not being in agreement with that view. I have certainly had financial struggles in the past, and that still clouds my judgment in how I perceive and act today.
For me, this was a helpful lesson in how Tarot both works with and aids our self-perception, as well as guiding us in our actions. I thought this was a helpful lesson and a broadening of my understanding of Tarot and how I interact with my cards.
Thank you, Tarot, and thank you all for listening.
