This weeks Tarot card is the 5 of Pentacles (10th – 16th August 2020)
So this week spirit have given us the 5 of Pentacles, as always the cards were shuffled and the question asked ” what message do you have for the people, for next week. As always the cards are read on a spiritual, psychic, spiritual led basis.
When the 5 of pentacles appears it signifies a time of hardship, financial worries, worries about health and our general security. So with the times we are all living in it’s hardly surprising the 5 of Pentacles should appear, with so many of us (millions) worrying about all of these things.
So what is the message?
The 5 of Pentacles is basically a “worry card”. If you look at the picture you see a young lady who looks like she has given up, all is lost and she doesn’t know which way to turn. She’s feeling despondent, there is so much others have that she doesn’t. She feels alone, left out, forgotten.
However look at the card more closely and you can see there are 5 pentacles (coins, money) attached to the door, and propped up against the door is a key to open the door. So… is all lost? Should she give in to despondency? or is there something to build on for the future? The 5 coins and the key may seen like nothing at all, but could they be the chance of a new start, a new future for her?
It is so easy for us to fall into the feelings of lack, despondency and understandably for millions of us now it all seems terrifying. What does our future hold? is my job safe? am I going to be laid off/made redundant, How am I going to pay the Rent, Mortgage, Bills, put food ion the table, the worry list is endless.
The message from the 5 of Pentacles is to turn those negative thoughts around. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, focus on what you do have. Use the sharp focus you have had in looking at the negatives to focus on the positives. Yes I can hear a lot of you saying “that’s easy for you to say”. But the message here is…. If you keep focusing on the negatives are they going to make things better? Will wallowing in the negativity help you or do we then go into the realms of your health deteriorating also through the stress, worry, fatigue, sleepless nights and so on and so on.
Try to look as they say for the “silver lining”, the “Glass half full” instead of the Glass half empty that the 5 of Pentacles is trying to get you to do.
For the week ahead
I will start this week with the words I always say, “take some time out for yourself! It is allowed“!
There are millions of us across the world that are in the same situation and in someway or another have been affected by the Coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic. In the last hours we have seen the reports of the explosion in Beirut and the devastation it has caused, not only to buildings but peoples lives and livelihoods. However we also see the reports of people turning up with brushes and shovels to help each other clean up and start again! The positives from the 5 of Pentacles.
We have all heard the saying that we are facing the “New Normal”, and in a way that’s what the 5 of Pentacles is asking you to do, to change your outlook, your perspective, create for yourself your “New Normal”.
The 5 of Pentacles is asking you what do you have? Look around you, your wife, partner, children, family, friends, the list can easily grow the more you look, because it’s not all about possessions is it? As they say “you can’t take it with you”.
The lady in the card feels she has nothing but she has 5 Pentacles and a key to the door, where might that door lead to? What lies behind it? New opportunities? New growth? New Vision, New Rewards?.
The 5 of Pentacles is saying to you “it’s about the way you choose to see things”, “Your Vision”, “Your Skills”, “Your Self-belief”.
As I have already said I can imagine so many saying “that’s easy for you to say”. But what alternative is there?
Do you choose the negatives of the 5 of Pentacles and fall into depression, desperation, lack of self-belief, ill health, the list goes on…. Or do you choose the positives of the card and start looking for your 5 Pentacles and your key to your door and your “new normal” future.
Until next time…. please take care and stay safe.
