Last nite, the meaning of pentacles suit from Ace to ten suddenly struck my mind. Though some of you may have already understood this long time ago or you may not agree, anyway, I just want to share with you.
Pentacles ¡V the earth suit combination, the pentagram consists of air, fire, water and earth with the spirit on the top, the total combination of the essences of life.
Ace of Pentacles
A gateway has been opened and the path is laid in front of you to understand the meaning of life, both material and spiritually.
Two of Pentacles
You are learning to juggle between the different aspects of life (the 5 elements represented by the Pentacles), you are learning how to get the optimal balance point.
Three of Pentacles
You have seen the initial achievement of your effort and you are happy with it. Probably you are getting help from people around you to get this achievement.
Four of Pentacles
You are being obsessed by the tangible achievements on the conscious level. You feel secure and safe with things that you are familiar with, you want to hold on to these.
Five of Pentacles
Your tendency to hold on to your past success or things that you are familiar with, which you actually no longer need, make you unable to move forward. You may feel despair and disappointed as you find that you are getting stuck instead of moving forward.
Six of Pentacles
You have to learn about the ¡§give and take¡¨, ¡§let go and receive¡¨ in life. Don¡¦t hold on to something you no longer need, maybe give it to someone else that needs it. Also, learn to receive ¡§gifts¡¨ from others (e.g. listen to my tarot, who tells me to spend money more wisely, sigh~). Life journey never means to be lonely.
Seven of Pentacles
You have gone through lessons in life, you have understood them and now you look at them piling around you. What to do?
Eight of Pentacles
You have enjoyed success and have stumbled on the road. You know that life is full of ups and downs, your mind is now more mature than you were in the ace of pentacles. You are ready to look at the lessons that you have learnt in the past with a refreshing point of view. Get insights from them and truly enjoy this process.
Nine of Pentacles
You feel serene, you understand the true meaning of life and everything becomes clear to you. You savor the joy of understanding the truth, and want to be alone to absorb and feel this precious moment.
Ten of Pentacles
You are totally refreshed and you bring yourself back to the mundane life with a new self. You are ready to share with others and know how to live a meaningful life with people around you.
Ace of Pentacles
Going back to the ace. You now hold the true essence of the pentacles in your hand. You understand the true meaning of life, it is not only in your mind, but also in your body and soul. This understanding may not be easily to articulate in words, but you are experiencing it everyday. You now know how to live, enjoy and appreciate life through simplicity i.e. even seeing a blooming a flower is a miracle to you.
Love and light
