Welcome to another Tarot Tuesday!
This morning, I decided to break out my Wild Unknown tarot deck and do a quick 2-card spread with it. I got the 10 of Pentacles and the 6 of Cups.
The Ten of Pentacles is a card of material wealth and prosperity – the complete fulfillment of efforts that bring about success.
I see this in the balanced array of pentacles set among concentric rings that radiate outward.
It’s a card that depicts success, fulfillment, and achievement.
The Six of Cups is a card of nostalgia and innocence. It’s a card that embodies the energy and passion of idealistic youth.
In the Wild Unknown deck, I see this as the “inner child” just beneath the surface (the colorful roots beneath the ground) – the real, authentic version of ourselves that we are too often afraid to show the world.
Together in an Energy/Action spread….
The Six of Cups and Ten of Pentacles is telling you that the key to success and prosperity isn’t chasing the latest business idea, or going after the job that pays the most.
It certainly is NOT stifling creative dreams and big, sometimes scary, ambitions because you don’t see a way to make a living from it.
No, the key to prosperity for you is to do what you love.
It sounds overly simple, but ultimately, you’re the type who will work hard and make things happen if you are truly interested and engaged.
The message in the 6 of Cups specifically is to show your true colors to the world. Don’t suppress your dreams and wishes. Let the world know about your intentions, and pursue the things that make you feel the most alive.
While it feels safer to blend in – to not call attention to yourself – (ie: be the dark silhouette of the tree depicted in the card), you will feel more alive and have a greater impact on the world once you allow your inner child (your colorful roots) to flow into every aspect of your life.
Tarot Journal Prompt: Take a moment to study the cards above. Take a deep breath in and out. Clear your mind, and then crack open your journal and write down the answers to the following questions:
- What was my favorite thing to do as a kid? Or – What did I want to be when I grew up?
- How much time do I spend doing that thing as an adult?
- How can I incorporate that interests/activity into my career or business?
- What aspect of myself am I keeping hidden from the world? Why?
