The Card of the Day: The Ace of Pentacles
The Ace of Pentacles represents new beginnings and prosperity. It is a card of positive financial thinking and renewed hope. Wealth consciousness begins with a feeling of self worth and gratitude for existing blessings. This state of mind entices even more abundant opportunities to seek you out, like hummingbirds to flowers.
What is your attitude about your financial life? Do you feel open to receiving or are you closed with anxiety? Are you actively seeking out new opportunities to improve your financial life?
The imagery of the card shows a divine hand holding a shining, golden coin. This symbolizes that God/the Universe/Spirit is blessing us with abundance and opportunity every moment of every day. We just might not be seeing it. Humans are impatient creatures of habit and are prone to lethargy. We want it now! “Where is it?! You mean I actually have to DO something to improve this?! I thought I could just sit back and let everything come to me, isn’t that how it works?”
The scene on this card depicts a garden. Gardens take time, patience and work to grow. If it is a labor of love, the garden will flourish. This shows that while you can change your mind to think in wealth consciousness in an instant, it doesn’t mean that suddenly money will rain down on you from the sky today. You have to tend your state of mind as you would tend a garden. Weeding out negative thoughts or habits and having patience with your unique growth process. You would never get frustrated with a flower for not blooming two days after the seeds were planted. Why expect your life to display a “finished product” today?
You must also occasionally leave the comfort of the garden to improve it. This means going out into the world, seeking out the elements that will help it flourish. Seek out opportunities and you will find them. Fortune favors the bold.
Today tend your thoughts. Be grateful for what you already have, and more will be on its way!
