I find the topic for this blog hop to be quite fascinating since it’s a topic I’ve dealt with for most of this year. When I think about Pentacles, I think of material prosperity, of the abundance of having money in your checking account. And, for the most part I think people think about that. But, it’s also about an abundance of other things too.
Energy. Self-Care. What you give and what you receive. Having enough to give and being open to receive. All of these things went through the energy of the Pentacles and all of them are part of the abundance this suit.
For me this has been summed up in a card I kept pulling earlier this year: Six of Pentacles
In the Wildwood Tarot deck, which I use, this card is called exploitation. It asks us, are we exploiting our resources? Is there not a balance in giving and receiving?
As we come to the harvest season, it’s now a time to ask: what have you done to tend the harvest that’s about to come? Have you exploited the soil, or in the case of this year’s drought gripping much of the Midwest, has a lack of resources caused a very lean harvest? What fruits will you harvest and are they the ones you want?
I look at the six of pentacles, and I see an exploitation of my own resources, of doing too much with too little and pushing myself beyond the point. I see a lesson of balance and the fruits of harvest of a strong foundation and the strength to go forward.
What does the six of pentacles tell you?
