Daily Draw - The Fool, Four of Pentacles, King of Cups
It's easier to go your own way, to take risks and follow your dreams off into the sunset when you have taken care of house at home, so to speak. Having a little something something in the bank makes that leap somehow easier. This is my dilemma to face at the moment. I have dreams, big ones, but I don't know to get from where I am to where I wanna be, and the precarious balance of love and money is forcing that issue for me. Then the King of Cups over there laughs, like he just knows it's all gonna be all right, and I am a mess worrying about it all for nothing. God, I hate smug assholes who laugh at me when I am legitimately worried. It's not like I am alone in the world with this worry, either. We all have dreams to follow, and practical concerns that could keep us from them. the trick of it comes in learning how to meet all the day to day details while also being authentically you. I don't have it all down, yet, but I am working on it.
Since I have The Fool and that smug King facing away from the uptight Four of Pentacles, I feel their energy rejects his. There is a kind of scarcity thinking that perpetuates itself when we let it, and the Fool is blithely unaware of the concerns the gruff ol' bear the Four of Pentacles holds, while the King of Cups is a mature gentlemen, so while he is likely aware, he just doesn't seem too concerned. Since he is a trustworthy King, when he is not reflecting my inner smug assholery to me, I can believe him. So I need to be aware of my pennies and where they go, but I also need to have faith that this is a temporary situation, that taking my leaps, that doing what I love, will be the ultimate answer.
God I hope so...
These images come the Prairie Tarot by Robin Ator, available here.
I am not a visual artist. The creators of the decks I use are. I try very hard to give proper credit to the artist when I use an image.
My most oft used deck on this blog is the Deviant Moon Tarot, created by Patrick Valenza and published by U.S. Games Systems, Incorporated. Check out his site to buy some fantastic Deviant Moon stuff, or a deck of your own!
A lovely, but digital only, Rider Waite Smith clone deck is the Aquatic by Andreas Schroter. You are allowed to downlaod and use the images.
They also make me tell you that readings are for entertainment purposes only. I'll tell you on my own that if you change your life based on a few cards something is not right there.
