the cards are so kind. after receiving really wonderful news that someone is applying to take over our lease, freeing us to move as we've been dreaming of for months, i pulled a lovely and exhilarating card today: the six of pentacles.
this card always fills me with so much joy, and is a welcome sight. colorful buds burst from the bright branch, illuminating the darkness and in fact, seeming to flourish. after the sadness of the fives, sixes are a turning point, an achievement, a sign that things are improving. and the suit of pentacles feels so concrete and grounded, speaking to resources and the earthly things we deal with on a daily basis. it's the perfect card for today.
reflecting healing, nurturing, and the good that can come from a challenge, this card is a lovely change after a few days of sadness. the buds on the branch seem to grow and bloom in response to the darkness, taking the difficulties that have come before and turning it into something fresh and strong and beautiful, something that can withstand trials and grief and pain.
in addition to reflecting the events of my past few months, this card also encourages generosity, humility, and kindness. how am i sharing my resources? how can i give back to those who have helped me arrive here? it always encourages me, whether i'm in a place of prosperity or of need, to remember that there is healing in both giving and receiving.
