The time to create is now. There is an opportunity you may be missing one that will move you to a place of comfort and peace with your situation. When you take action and seize the opportunity the thing you create will bring an abundance of positive events and experiences.
The crow detaches itself it's useless body that had weighed her down for so long - so long that it had almost grown accustomed to the rigidity and immobility. As she soars into the air - she remembers what it is like to feel the air and the pounding of a heartbeat.
With Death serving as the foundation for today's reading, you let go of something or someone who held you back. Although you are where you are today because of detaching - the path forward was through the experience of the situation or relationship. There was a lesson that needed to occur, one that put you in a position where you valued yourself and your well-being more than your attachment.
Others in the past may have tried to define you - and although their actions played a role in some way - it was learning to free yourself from the opinions or beliefs of others that enables you to fly.
Whether it be a spouse who expected you to be their version of the perfect mate - or a job that sucked the soul right out of you - it was through this experience you found your wings.
A group of crows found comfort and security in the branches of a strong tree during the storm, the same could not be said for the two crows on the ground. Their plan was to move forward by staying low- under the wind. Because their heads were down - struggling through the storm the birds were unable to look up where if they had they would have seen the perfect place to rest.
The Five of Pentacles brings forward the message that an opportunity is being missed because you are too focused on struggling. This reminds me of those mornings when my daughter frantically struggles with our front door as we are rushing out to school - freaking out that it won't open only to realize that she needs to unlock the deadbolt.
In the daily grind, and the stress of living we often miss opportunities to make our lives easier because we aren't looking for them.
The Five of Pentacles is a reminder that help is there, and that there is more than one way to approach a situation - what aren't you seeing or noticing because you are too busing or focused on "just getting through?"
Calling upon the energy at the foundation of this reading - What do you need to let go so that you can see that there is an opportunity in front of you that will ease your struggle? It may be a misguided belief that you will never find a better, job, partner, etc... it may be that there is someone who wants to help you - but you have been conditioned to believe that help equals weakness and because of this you go it alone where you needlessly suffer.
Take a moment today - if this is resonating with you - what opportunities are there waiting for you to take action?
The crow flies across the land - she feels deeply connected to the world below and the world above as she expands her love outward. It is through this field of positive energy that all around her life blossoms.
With the Empress coming through - there is a supportive energy in the air as the Universe will conspire to ensure success when you put your ideas into motion. The card of fertility and abundance - the Empress is a sign to create - to bring something into this world that expresses your uniqueness because when you do it will provide you with a financial and emotional support.
This a great time to meditate on what it is you wish to create, what areas of your life you wish to improve upon - with the Empress supporting you, there is a strong loving energy - one that will assist you in letting go, discover new opportunities, and develop a plan that will bring your ideal situation into fruition.
