Energy of the Week
One of my favorite cards in the deck, The Hermit card embodies Virgo energy - Earth element - stable, grounded, highly spiritual, analytical and wise. When you are ready to go on a solo journey to seek inner guidance and deeper understanding of Self, you may pull The Hermit card. It calls for solitude in order to gain clarity from within. You may take as long as needed to analyze, assess, or reflect on your emotions, thoughts, actions, and life purpose. The old man on the card carries a lantern with a shining star inside - symbolic of one's inner light. People who travel the world on a spiritual quest tend to be in this hermit mode but it can be as simple as a weekend retreat. The knowledge and wisdom gained is meant to fortify a direction or calling. If you're feeling overwhelmed, confused, distraught or emotional imbalance, you may want to take this sacred time of alone.
Three of Pentacles
The 3 of Pentacles is another Earth-based, grounded type of energy card. Pentacles represent stability, resources, money. The people in the card are working together in collaboration to strategize and build something of substance. This has to do with planning and setting a foundation for the future. Teamwork and hard work is required here. Like earth energy, this isn't a fast-moving situation - slow and steady wins the race. Planning something that will last takes focus, precision and attention to detail. You'll likely need communicate with several people to coordinate schedules and play specific roles. Have you found your tribe? Do you have a common vision that you're ready to work towards?
