Thank you for reading my daily posts - I love writing them and I hope you find that they offer new ideas or fresh insights into how you can add more harmony to your life.
A new era is emerging one that will bring you into a place of feeling at peace with your environment. With little, if anything to worry about in regards to financial matters and with all your needs met you will have the freedom to express yourself without restraints. When you use this opportunity to show off your skills you will discover that you offer something that is not only useful to others but is valuable - ensuring a position of comfort.
The crow dances with joy within in a large laurel wreath - without calculation, or motive and for no other creature than itself. It is connected with the divine and with it - the divine moves through the bird. A feeling of serenity washes over the crow as it realizes that although its actions may take place in the physical world they go much further into the spiritual.
Serving as a foundation for the Nine of Pentacles, the World marks the end of a period of feeling at odds or struggling as you moved into a place of grace. No longer tethered to the need for other's approval you are able to remove your ego at will and allow yourself the freedom of embracing who you truly are - perfectly imperfect. When you embraced the real you, that part of that would send you off dancing without giving a care whether anyone is watching or not - that is when the connection with your higher-self created a shift and opened the door for a new approach to life.
The playful crow stands on the wolf's head as the two enjoy a harmonious life surrounded by an abundance of resources - easily ensuring that all their needs are met. In this new environment the part of the creatures that once focused on survival - their kill or be killed "wild side" is of no longer needed and the pair uses their energy for fun such as developing new ideas and enjoying all life has to offer.
The Nine of Pentacles at the center of today's reading brings the message to embrace the abundance you have worked hard to obtain - take a moment to appreciate all that you have achieved as it was not at a mere snap of the finger that you are here.
The Nine of Pentacles brings together the desire to strive for a better life without worrying about survival with the ability to relax and delight in the fact that life is a bit easier these days - it is here that true harmony is achieved.
With the World creating the foundation - you will find that when you are true to yourself and work to create something that you are proud of first without being concerned by how it will be accepted by others that is when you are operating from a higher-place and it is one that will have the universe conspiring to ensure your success.
The older and wiser crow demonstrates to the fledgling the best technique for gathering the sweetest fruit. Although this bird could have waited until no other creature was around to construct its perfectly positioned mound of pentacles and enjoying the fruit alone - instead it saw the value of helping others and used it skills to make a difference in the community.
The Three of Pentacles supports The World and the Nine of Pentacles nicely here this morning as the message it brings is when you use your unique skills to help others - in doing so not only will you provide a valuable resource for those around you - in addition, you will also solidify your life of harmony.
