How are you all? I am a little tired as I haven't slept so well these past couple of nights. This has been mainly due to the thunder and lightning storms and then the sudden the drop in temperature last night. I should sleep well, I have been out all weekend doing chores and playing out, yesterday in particular we took advantage of visiting nieces for a long play out in the morning followed by a late and long family lunch in a local carvery. I do love a choice of umpteen veggies!
I have things on my mind and I asked upstairs what I need to be thinking about and we have The 7 of Pentacles and Death. These seem to go well together dontcha think?
Dominant Energy: 7 of Pentacles
This 7 talks to us of rewards and reflection. We have gone so far on our path and we have reached a place of comfort and reward. We have sown and now we can reap and enjoy. Life is good. Now comes the questions; Are we content? is this it? Now is the time to reflect on where we have been and where we want to go. Why do we want to go? Surely we are in a good place so why would we consider moving?
Life is not static. It is not a straight line either, it loops and curls and circles and twists and turns and knots and unravels. We may think that yes I am happy here but I wish I had taken that opportunity when it presented itself. It may re-appear and you can have a shot at it, or it may have been a once a lifetime opportunity. Other opportunities may now start appearing We may decide we want to get of the ride we call life for a while and stay here, but 'here' my not last either and we are forced to move on. Like so many things, it is always easier if we decide to move or change rather than have it forced upon us. This 7 is that card, it is a small time out in which we have the time to look about us clearly and freely so that we can choose for ourselves where we want to go next or how we want to develop and improve ourselves via our experiences or knowledge. This is a cup of tea and biscuit, feet up and plan for the next phase kind of card.
Well change is on it's way and not much we can do about it, or is there? Life is all about the circles and cycles out with the old and in with the new. If we are not too attached then we can appreciate what we had but also appreciate when it has had its time and when we have to move on. If we do get too attached then it is harder or traumatic when we have to let it go.
The 7 of Pentacles is giving us notice to consider our next stage of our journey and Death is reminding us that staying still is not an option and helping us to focus on our future. Change is inevitable.
