Death | 5 of Pentacles | Wheel of Fortune | King of Cups | Page of Swords
Maybe there was something about the old system that simply wasn’t working for you. That doesn’t mean that you won’t miss it, or won’t wish things were still the way they used to be. What would happen if you scrapped those old ideas, old patterns, old ways of being and started fresh? The Death card is a metaphor, in reality it is actually a gateway to personal transformation. It’s not easy. It’s not painless. It’s not without loss. What transformation is without real loss? I see you struggling with this idea today. You might even deep dive into some self-pity and an attitude that reflects that this is the hand you are always dealt. Why me? Maybe you feel like you are always on the brink of achieving what you want, only to have it taken from you before reaching the final goal and achieving the type of satisfaction you would like feel. In the end, this is the problem with expectations. Maybe you achieved what you were suppose to achieve with this work, project, friendship – whatever it is you now have to say goodbye to. The 5 of Pentacles is not a fun card. No one wants to feel it. But, is it true? Are you completely penniless or destitute or are you simply worried that you will be this way? Is there really no one for you to fall back on? Is there no one for you to call? I am not saying people do not experience real loss, but so often the lesson of the 5 of Pentacles is: If you feel penniless, destitute, or friendless – What are you going to do about it? Midweek we have the blessing of the Wheel of Fortune. I see you picking yourself up by the bootstraps and charting a new course. A new destiny awaits, the only thing that you ever needed was forward momentum. Lean into the future. There is also, someone for you to lean on. Maybe this person helps you dream of all that you can be. Don’t stay stuck with a life-long cycle of negative thinking, when you can fly into an ambition and creative future with someone at your side. Don’t cut down the only person who is holding you up at this time.
