Daily Draw - Six of Wands, Four of Pentacles, Ace of Swords

These cards today are addressing my money issues, or more likely, my scarcity thinking issues, that I first began to talk about on Sunday.  The Four of Pentacles is back for a repeat performance with some more cards that just don't believe his nay saying.  The flanking Six of Wands and Ace of Swords look like they are about to pull a bank robbery and make a quick getaway.  The Six of Wands speaks victory, and confidence even in the face of adversity.  The Ace of Swords is ready to bust open the lock on the chest the man is guarding so closely.  Whatever is in there, it is something I must have.  It is vital to my quest.

What is it?  What is in there that he keeps from me, that I need?  A Jackalope... Really?  A mythical creature.  WTF am I supposed to do with that?

Maybe what I am supposed to do is believe, to have faith, which is the absolute belief in something untouchable, unseeable, unprovable, not completely knowable.

And probably, since fantastical fiction is my genre of choice, maybe I should be writing some of those things myself, huh?  I do not necessarily write in a world that would have a jackalope, but I can certainly envision many other far fetched creatures that belong there.

So, I think these cards today are addressing a specific concern, which is causing me to not put forth my best writing effort, be stingy even, as shown in the Four of Pentacles.  I am so worried about making money doing what I love that I am very possibly blocking myself from doing so.

  1. I think I've done the same thing to myself, in several instances. Which reminds me: I need to get cracking.

  2. Yeah, it's funny, not in a haha way, how we can be our own worst enemy at times...
