Posts Tagged ‘Reversed Ace of Pentacles’
This week’s question is from Jill: “I do believe in the law of attraction to some degree and feel that the energy of my life is directly correlated to the energy I give off. However I also believe that sometimes the Universe does for us what we cannot do for ourselves…and the lessons get more intense if we refuse to listen. When something bad happens I try to look for the lesson…..or how my own thoughts may have contributed. The past few weeks I have experienced the largest string of bad luck in my life….ranging from injury to heartbreak to monetary to just plain stressful inconvenience. And I just can’t figure out what the Universe is trying to tell me that I am not hearing. My question would be something around what is the lesson and advice to alter the energy?”
Reversed Ace of Pentacles – 2 of Wands – Reversed 8 of Pentacles
In between two reversed Pentacles cards, the 2 of Wands is centered in this reading. This shows us the need to find balance in a chaotic situation – a situation that seems to actually stem from work and financial issues that have needed attention on some level. With the Reversed Ace of Pentacles, it’s almost as if the hand is taking away a gift or an opportunity that was there for you. Consider if you may have missed an opportunity in the recent past that related to career and/or money matters.
It seems that the Universe has slowed you down to a grinding halt so that you can have a chance to gain a new perspective about your life – and to focus on what you need to be paying attention to . . . which isn’t always the same things as we WANT to pay attention to. For example, some people are so busy focusing on their love lives, when it’s their career that is literally demanding some attention. And when they don’t pay attention to what they are called upon to look at, things start falling apart to get their attention – sometimes in not-so-nice ways, as you are currently experiencing.
The 2 of Wands is asking you to use this downtime while you heal and recover to consider your next step and direction. The surrounding Pentacle cards in reverse seem to ask you to look at details and/or opportunities you have either missed, overlooked, or perhaps disregarded as unimportant. It can even suggest an opportunity may have been there, but you were either afraid to make a change, or you simply didn’t view it as a real opportunity to move forward on.
The Reversed 8 of Pentacles indicates that perhaps you needed to pay more attention to certain details that were overlooked. It suggests that perhaps your talents are not being properly expressed, and now things are standing still so that you can take a good look at where you are versus where you really want to be. Jill, it looks like you are being asked to explore your work/career direction. It feels like that is what has been asking for your attention for awhile now, but perhaps you have focused elsewhere instead. Now you have the chance, with this unfortunate down time, to make good use of this opportunity presented to consider your plans, goals, and direction that you really want. Down time can be productive – even if it comes to us painfully.
Best Wishes and Many Blessings!
