Intuitive Tuesday -- Nine of Pentacles and Pentacles Overall

Every Tuesday I select one tarot card and give you my interpretation of it. See how it applies to your life and ask, "What messages are here for me ?"

As I shuffled the cards to select this week's Intuitive Tuesday tarot card, I said, "Tell me what messages I need to bring to my readers this week."  I selected the Nine of Pentacles, which I have previously pulled on this blog.

I turned over the next two cards on the top of the deck to get further clarification and got the Page of Pentacles and the Queen of Pentacles (reversed).

The Pentacles "flush" continued when I shuffled and pulled the Two of Pentacles and the Eight of Pentacles. This is when I realized that the message today isn't about one particular card, but it's about the suit of Pentacles.

All of these cards were selected from the Aquarian Tarot Deck by David Palladini.

So let's look at the suit of Pentacles (sometimes referred to as Coins) and can have several meanings.

  • deal with the material world and are associated with the element of Earth
  • have to do with money, business and finance...which all help facilitate the material things that we have in our lives
  • symbolize education, training and employment
  • also deal with your body and your health. This energy can ground you in your daily life
In the book, "The Heart of the Tarot," by Thomson, Mueller and Echols, they refer to Pentacles with the words, "rewarding efforts." They continue, "Pentacles deal with physical abilities and talents...and can speak of self-evaluation and feelings of self-worth or lack thereof." (pages 219-220).

By selecting five cards in a row in the suit of Pentacles, the message for me today is to ground my energy, reconnect with the earth and apply my talents, gifts and skills into areas that bring rewarding outcomes to myself and to others. 

Last week before I began one of my tarot card readings, I spent time doing an Aura Healing with the client to help ground my energy and his. As a society, we get going so fast, that our energy can be floating all over the place. Grounding is an amazing way to come back to what's important.

In yoga, one of the easiest ways is to simply breathe deep, using my ujjayi breath -- deep inhalation and deep exhalation through the nose, making an oceanic sound in the back of your throat.

It's interesting to me too, how we have been hearing a lot about the tsunami that happened in Japan recently, and realizing the tremendous power of the forces of our earth and Mother Nature.

Perhaps the bigger Pentacles message today also includes sending positive energy to our earth to help bring about healing...and peace.

Take a moment now to not only ground yourself with a few deep breaths, but to send your positive, healing energy to the entire earth. If we all do a little, it turns into a lot.

For me this means monetary recognition. Today is bonus day! And I was rewarded very well for my work over the past year.

Great idea! to send calming "oceanic breath" to our Mother Earth and Ocean.. It is also a good time for me to ground and ponder where I find my self worth from.
Thanks, Sheri.

Love this: "If we all do a little, it turns into a lot."

I had a substitute yoga teacher today who lead a very grounding class. So this reading reinforces that it's important that we recognized our relationship to the Earth.

Thanks, Sheri!

"pentacles... also deal with your body and your health. This energy can ground you in your daily life"

Indeed... this refers to my slow healing process I am certain... The so called "set backs" which I have been getting frustrated with the last 24 hours... but then I read this from you Sheri and realise this is not really a set back... but a slow forward progress.
For clarity, I then pulled a card from my Wisdom of the Hidden Realms deck (a get well gift from Andrea) and I pulled The Spiral Dancer. She says that what I am experiencing as a set back is really part of an upward spiral... Perception is everything... I am not going backward or retracing my steps, I am moving around and up! My path is one of success, adventure and experience!!!!! All is well!!!

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!!!!

This is so perfect for today!
I recently had an "aha!" moment about the need to ground and reconnect with the Earth. In fact, this has been a reoccurring theme and hard-learned lesson throughout my life. My natal horoscope contains zero planets in earth signs, and my numerology lacks in number 7 (which I understand to be related with the setting of limits). I am always floating away! The pentacle theme right now is at the forefront, as I've come to realize how truly crucial grounding is for me.

This goes perfectly with another message I've been receiving lately and that is to "be still". So simple but it is really calming and grounding.
Thank you Sheri!
