Every week we’re faced with all kinds of challenges and opportunities. This week we are faced with the Three of Pentacles as an insight into our challenges and The Hermit as an opportunity to look out for.
The Three of Pentacles as a Challenge
The challenge to look out for this week revolves around sloppy work, being uncooperative, and having little support.
You may feel unease around your work environment this week. Coworkers are going to seem distant and you may feel like you are going at it alone. This can lead to sloppy work. You may have someone ask you to do something that you feel is impractical, unsafe, or unethical. You may be unfairly criticized for your work or unnoticed for your contributions. Do some more networking to find the right person to share your projects with as you or someone else may be stubbornly resistant to working cooperatively.
The Hermit as an Opportunity
The opportunities to look for this week include introspection, perspective, and guidance.
This week we are being guided to withdraw from the world. As a wise old soul, who has learned much about themselves and their world through deep introspection and meditation. Your soul is craving retreat because you need to replenish and restore parts of you you have ignored for so long. Throw away the books, cast away the websites, and just sit with yourself. The answers you are seeking are within. By creating this space and solitude now, you will be ready to engage with and guide yourself when you need spirit most. If need be, seek out the counsel of a trusted and wise mentor figure in your life.
Make this Week Yours!
Barbara Powell said: “Every kind of creative work demands solitude, and being alone, constructively alone, is a prerequisite for every phase of the creative process.”
Marcus Aurelius said: “Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul.”
Take this week to make time for yourself. This will greatly effect you spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. The material will suffer if you’re not right with yourself. With Saturn going retrograde in Pisces and the new moon in Gemini, there is a great opportunity for dissolution and purification and opportunities to manifest something amazing in finding the words and courage to share valuable insights.
The deck I’m using is The Pagan Otherworlds Tarot by UUSI. You can check them out here.
