The Naked Heart tarot’s take on the Five of Pentacles speaks about the poverty of spirit that comes from over identification with the material realm. That is interesting because that’s been the theme for some of this week’s readings, so I feel like it neatly ties it all up. Here reversed, this card indicates release from material and spiritual poverty.
The release from limiting modes of thinking comes from the application of the powers of the Wheel of Fortune, that can speak of the application of universal laws in our lives, and also of the turning of the wheel of time. Both our conscious decision to use the Cosmic laws of abundance, manifestation, and gratitude; and also the natural endings and beginnings of life, are things that can get us out of a poverty rut. One is conscious, the other, subconscious. As we get in touch with these forces, however, we realize how connected they are: manifestation and conscious creation go hand in hand with release and surrender to the tides of existence.
From those tides of subconscious water, a new version of us emerges. The Child of Cups shows a state of innocent intuition, trust in the ocean of existence, and playful abiding in the deep seas of the mind and spirit. That place is somewhere we can reach once we come to work in partnership with the Universe both in our conscious minds and in our submerged hearts.
Blessings of recovery, abundance, and multifaceted wealth to all of you! May you have learned, lived well and loved much this past week. Peace
