What a beautiful transformation going on here! This is how I like to go into the weekend and it is with this energy that we can manifest that which will best serve us.
The crow of Death is free, it is no longer tethered to the energy of past. It is here that it experiences the lightness of life. Any words that had cursed the crow in the past no longer have control as it is free of any negative beliefs that it once willingly accepted as truth. The Death card in this position symbolizes a recent freedom or release from the burden of negative emotions or a situation. It may have been a bad habit that you let go or a belief you once thought about yourself as true but now understand it was not. This is not a temporary change - the Death card represents a significant shift and that thing that you released is gone as you have created a shield to prevent the energy that came with the negative belief or situation from entering your new being.
Very fittingly, the Strength card arrives to ensure that progress is made with confidence. The crow tamed with the wild beast not with bullying tactics, but rather through confidence and a high self-esteem. It is from this place that the bird is secure enough in its skin that it can face any giant, any creature regardless of temperament as the crow's inner calm brings all to a place of ease. There is a new sense of freedom right now, as you move through life, whatever you left in the past is the reason today you have a greater understanding for who you really are and all that you can accomplish. Strength comes from letting go.
This reminds me of a quote from Anais Ninn " And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
By letting go and building your inner strength the Ace of Pentacles is free to create and bring into your life an abundance of joy and success.
Perched high on the pentacle the crow can clearly see over the clouds as a new destination comes into view. The Ace of Pentacles brings a message of new opportunities and a fresh beginning. In addition, there is a good amount of financial prosperity around this energy as well and it brings with it the power to manifest your dreams.
The Ace of Pentacles arrives because of what you let go in the past and the strength that came out of that transition. The time is right for a fresh start - one that promises to create a path to success as you now have a solid foundation of positive beliefs and self-love to create anything your heart desires.
Are you ready to create something awesome?
