Tarot Card of the Week, May 31-June 5, 2021: The Ace of Pentacles Returns
We have a return visit from the Ace of Pentacles.The Ace of Pentacles presents great possibilities, in the area of prosperity, abundance, trust, security, and groundedness. In readings, it shows that a seed of productivity has been planted in your life although you may not yet recognize it.When the seed sprouts, it could take almost any form. It might be a feeling of centeredness, desire for results or need to focus on practical matters. In addition, it could indicate an offer, gift, opportunity, encounter or synchronistic event.
The Stars Reflecting the Circled Star. I love that, for this first full week of Mercury’s retrograde, we are receiving a RE-run visit from a recent card of the week. Clearly, there is something tremendously vital going on, as Aces are second only to the Major Arcana in the breadth and depth of their messages for us.
So, it appears that the multiverse is asking us to RE-view this card’s meaning, and how we apply its gifts in our lives.This year the month of June begins with a Mercury retrograde review of all things Gemini! This retrograde will find us “pruning and shaping” our expression, getting a new look and new understanding of the last half of Gemini and our response to that part of our chart as prelude to a transformation of “life into mind” after Mercury goes direct in late June…Mercury, “the Guide of Souls,” when retrograde, indicates a great time for taking a new look at recent developments, with an eye to a different perspective which can round out our view and opinion of any given thing.As I said last month, Saturn has also just begun its retrograde period on a degree which offers us techniques of direct accomplishment and the ability to accelerate the evolutionary potential once we have a vision, a plan, and a good time to execute the procedure…… 2020 was momentous because it began a new 20 year Aquarian Era, launched as a long term wave form at the Grand Mutation last December. That Jupiter conjunction with Saturn also set a new 200 year Era into motion, moving global energies out of Earth and into Air.
That implies we’re moving out of the materialism of the past 200 years, and have entered two centuries of the qualities of Air, with the associated qualities of relatedness, receptivity, versatility, movability, lightness, and cooperative ideas, visions, and ideals.What might the Ace of Pentacles represent in a post-materialist culture?As this tremendous Era change begins to gain momentum, it would appear this retrograde period and the current eclipse midpoint offer an opportunity to open and change our minds: about what well-being really means, about how much is enough, about how to flourish within a sustainable, mindful paradigm.For instance, how has the pandemic changed forever our post WWII, militaristic model of hierarchical “chain of command” workplaces?
And how do we give and receive material support in a fair, balanced, and healthful way?It’s time. It’s really time.
