Two of Pentacles and Ace of Pentacles
We start the week with a Full Moon in Capricorn on July 3. The earthy pentacles align perfectly with the earth sign of Capricorn, enhancing the tangible, practical, and responsible energy inside of us.
Our first card this week is the Two of Pentacles. There is always an infinity symbol with this card and with the deck depicted above, it’s seen in the leaves wrapped around two golden coins.
The symbol shows us that change is infinite. Though we may be facing an upcoming transition, change is always happening. There will never be a time when everything stands completely still.
The infinity symbol is a reminder that the more comfortable we become with change, the less rigid and fearful we will be. The card calls us to view change with a sense of acceptance rather than tension.
Just as a caterpillar goes through a major transformation to become an enchanting butterfly, we ourselves are evolving into a deeper state when we encounter transformative energy.
The message of balance is also highlighted in this card. If a change is coming up for you, make sure you take some time to invest in your foundation. You will need extra care for your body and home to stay grounded.
It can be easy to get lopsided during an adjustment period. Don’t let your needs get neglected or run yourself ragged. Spend some alone time and don’t forget that boundaries are healthy, especially with family.
The Two of Pentacles will be supporting us through the changes ahead. So if there is something that has needed a shift, this card will support the process.
If we resist change, this card might push for it anyway. It is said, whatever we resist will persist, and that is part of the lesson for this card. So let’s embrace the movement forward.
Our next card is the Ace of Pentacles. This card in partnership with the Two of Pentacles really gives us superpowers. It represents even more growth opportunities and grounded strength.
On a material level, this card can point to a large input of funds, either from a windfall or a big promotion. On a spiritual level, since this card is connected to our relationship with the earth, it can represent aligning closer with nature.
It can also point to a sudden deepening of our spiritual path, either by gaining a profound insight or perhaps through a guide. The phrase ‘the teacher appears when the student is ready’ is tied to this card.
So the message of the Ace of Pentacles is twofold. On one level it is about accomplishments in the material world and opportunities to be successful. And on another level, it is about connecting to the rhythm of the universe.
Notice the seasons changing and spend time outside. Really look at the sky and smell the air. Spend time with the energy of the Full Moon and move in flow with the earth.
Awareness of our unique place and connection to the world is key to our success. The universe will share so many important messages if we stop to listen. It will guide us to the places we have been unable to go before and will open many doors.
How will you allow the cards to support you this week? Think about where you hold power and where you want to grow. Dream about starting new exciting ventures and connecting to the current of the planet. Set your intentions under the vibrations of the Full Moon, the universe is listening.
Mantra for the week: When I align with the grounded energy of the earth, blessings are abundant.
