Tarot’s Suit of Pentacles and Money

Christmas is looming and it is a time that we spend way too much money, leaving us with debts to pay off long after the holiday season is over.

Are you generally an overspender putting more and more debt on credit cards, store cards etc?

Then the suit of Pentacles can help you.

Although each card in the Tarot (from Major Arcana to the suits of Cups and Swords) can offer insight and advice on resolving your money issues, the suit of Pentacles is focused on money, possessions, home and wealth.

Suit of Pentacles – Money Lessons and Advice

 

1pAce of Pentacles –May represent the beginning of new investments or the willingness to undertake a new business venture. There is also the possible indication of a legacy or influx of money from an unexpected source. The Ace of Pentacles heralds a feeling of prosperity and abundance and should be accepted joyfully. It is a very positive card in general.

Aces are all about planting those seeds that – when nurtured well – will turn into something precious and valuable,

What to do: start a savings plan, even if you just invest a little every month. Spending money on a training course will pay off if it enhances your skills and you can apply it in your work or business. Invest money.

What to avoid: risky investments, get rich quick schemes, spontaneous purchases and reckless spending you won’t have anything to show for later.

2pTwo of Pentacles –a card of good time management and financial management, ensuring that your bills are paid on time, that you keep a record of all your appointments and daily commitments, etc. It may sound tedious having to focus your attention on these more mundane issues but this card reminds you that sometimes getting on top of your daily affairs is as important as pursuing your broader life goals.

What to do: be ruthless and cut out any unnecessary spending. Identify areas in your spending pattern, where money just leaks away without you noticing. Take time to make an income and expenditure sheet.

What to avoid: getting into debt; ignoring financial warning signs, hoping for the best.

3pThree of Pentacles –Effective planning, management and organisation of your money and financial commitments are key components of the Three of Pentacles. This card therefore, reflects a time when it is essential to create a detailed plan and to follow it. If you need to spend money on a project, your home or your business, invest wisely.

What to do: invest your money into something, that restores and increases value. Focus on your living or work space, where you spend a lot of your time. Upcycling, e.g. furniture and old soft furnishings. If you invest in your business, seek professional advice. Focus on quality.

What to avoid: cutting corners to save time and money; this won’t pay off in the long-term.

4pFour of Pentacles –Although this card shows a practical and financially stable person, it often indicates possessiveness, greed and an overly cautious approach to life. You may be afraid to take risks, both financially and emotionally for fear of losing everything that you have attained so far. As a result, you may be vaguely unhappy and unfulfilled.

It’s good to be in control and be careful with your spending, but sometimes it’s not so good to skimp, especially on necessary repair bills, essential foods and clothing. You can enjoy life and have a good time without blowing all your life savings.

What to do: re-evaluate your savings and spending pattern and make some adjustments

What to avoid: high-risk investments; putting all your money in one basket; depriving yourself (and loved ones) of luxury you can easily afford

5pFive of Pentacles –The Five of Pentacles indicates difficulty with your relationship to money and material things. If money becomes the primary motivating force in life and the gauge by which you judge your worth, the lack of it may produce anxiety and a sense of being excluded from the good things money can provide. For example, if you are unfortunate enough to encounter financial difficulties such as the loss of employment or an investment gone belly-up, you may fall into the trap of losing faith in your ability to recreate a positive financial situation for yourself. Therefore, you should not only consider your actual financial circumstances are but also your attitudes and beliefs toward money. What fears do you have around money and wealth? Are you anxious about never having enough, or do you have faith in your ability to manifest what you need to live a prosperous, fulfilled life no matter what your circumstances? Often wealth is based as much on your psychological state as your actual financial state.

What to do: reduce your spending to the bare essentials; review your remaining assets; consider selling some of your possessions, but also explore how you can make money using the knowledge and skills you have. Ask for professional advice and help, if you have debts or lost your job. Work on your money blocks and limiting beliefs.

What to avoid: isolation and trying to fix your money problems all by yourself; ask for the help you need and are entitled to. Money blocks and blaming others.

6pSix of Pentacles –You are in harmony with your money. The amount that comes in and the amount that flows out are in balance, and you are thankful for what you have without being grasping of it, and happy to share with others in need. 

What to do: repay a debt to stop it from growing. Offer financial help, if you can afford it. Consider donating to and buying from charity shops to support good causes. If you are entitled to benefits, apply for them.

What to avoid: don’t let your generosity be exploited; watch out for cons, who appeal to your kindness. Borrowing money, increasing credit card debt.

7pSeven of Pentacles – Money keeps trickling in steadily, you are reaching the end of a difficult period of financial or material difficulty and you are now experiencing the rewards of hard work and effort.

What to do: find new ways to add an additional income stream. Invest in a business venture you are keen to work on, but don’t give up your day job yet. Make sure you always have your basic living costs covered. Start a new savings plan in addition to the ones you already have.

What to avoid: rash decisions and indecisiveness. Take your time exploring opportunities, but don’t ponder on them forever or you might miss them.

8pEight of Pentacles –The Eight of Pentacles is the encouragement to keep doing what you are doing as it will eventually lead to success. Yes, it requires a lot of dedication, focus and patience but as each day passes and as you stay true to your values and beliefs, you get a little closer to your goal. It may not be as apparent as you may like but events are unfolding that will lead you to the right path. Continue working on yourself, too, and making ongoing improvements and adjustments to ensure that you are the best person you can be.

What to do: invest in learning a new skill or enhancing an existing one, it can help you demand a higher salary in the future without working your socks off. Applying for funding for a business project or further studies.

What to avoid: cashing in a savings plan prematurely. Making major financial changes.

9p Nine of Pentacles – is about enjoying the good life and the fruits of your labour. You have worked hard to get here, so now, sit back and relax and enjoy some of life’s luxuries. You deserve it! Do not be afraid to splurge, indulge or pamper yourself, particularly if it is a reward for all of your hard work. Treat yourself to something special.Trust your instincts in money matters; you tend to be on the right track. Investments in land and property are likely to offer an excellent return in the future. Good money management gives you a feeling of abundance and stability.

What to do: reap the rewards of your hard work and enjoy the good life without going overboard. Maintain and nurture what you have. You may not lack anything now, but ensure you won’t lack anything in the future. Focus on self-reliance and financial independence.

What to avoid: complacency and recklessness with money.

10pTen of Pentacles – is a card of affluence and wealth. You are blessed with material abundance and are now free from any sort of money troubles. You feel financially secure and you are fortunate enough to have luck and success on your side to ensure your financial reserves are high. Create a legacy and ensure you and your family are taken care of.

What to do: If you are due a payout on any policy, consider re-investing it to build on what you have already gained.  Sell anything that has no sentimental value to them if they just collect dust in the attic. Invest money into to savings and investments.

What to avoid: becoming a slave to your debts and material possessions or being too attached to material things. Hoarding rather than selling.

My top tip for improving your money situation:

Track your money daily, incoming and outgoing so that you have an exact record of where your money is going. This way you can identify careless spending and make adjustments.

By writing down each and every expenditure, you gain control and make better decisions on where and what you spend your money on.

Using the Pentacles for advice on finances.

Simply remove the ten pentacle cards from your deck, shuffle them and draw a card. What information does it give you regarding your finances?                                            What actions should you take?

Get on top of your money issues, take charge and start creating abundance with the Tarot.

My Journey with the Tarot – The Chariot

21d475bde6f3ee82a0e013d5f275141a (1)Today’s card is the chariot and I am excited to see what this card has in store for me today. The chariot is all about opposing forces, drive, ambition and control.

The Chariot is telling me it is time to assert myself and to be bold, to be confident, to epress my needs and wants. And most importantly to have faith in myself, my beliefs and what I stand for, which we saw in the Lovers card yesterday.

I have arrived at a crossroads, there are two different paths ahead of me and the opposing forces are trying to pull me in two different directions. My emotions are heightened as I try to take control of where it is I am headed.  The path is being lit for me and intuitively I know where I need to go. Focus and determination will enable me to take full control and it is time for me to start moving in the right direction which will ultimately lead me to success.

I must focus on the task at hand so that I can finish the projects I am working on. I am ready for any challenges that come my way, my strength and willpower will move them out of the way for me.

My journey with the Tarot – The Emperor

27d58da14e3ab02c02f79b0a80137bd1--marchetti-the-emperorIt’s day 5 of my journey with the Tarot and today I am working with the Emperor. The Emperor is all about discipline, law and order, action and drive, power, courage, inspiration, determination, passion and survival.

The Emperor is definitely giving me some clear messages and guidance today and I have some work to do! I am going to focus on my business with this card today and here is a list of some of the things the Emperor is asking me to do:

  1. Set an ambitious goal or target; dream big, create a clear vision and build a vision of where I want to be. – Although my vision board around work is complete I feel I need to relook at it, add to it and get more specific with where I want to be.

2. Put my plans into action and persevere. – I need to make a new schedule

3. Stand up for myself; don’t let others control or intimidate you – I will look for any areas where I need to stand up for myself more

4. Re-organise my workspace, team or business to improve efficiency and productivity. – I definitely need to do this,  my new room will be finished in a couple of weeks and I will have a new workspace, desk and storage.

5. Focus on logic, reason and left-brain thinking – I am a Pisces, this is a hard one!

6. Find my career niche, the place where your skills are recognised and in demand, and where you can make a difference – Although I have my niche and ideal client there is always more work that can be done.

7. Look at the bigger picture – Will work with my vision board

8. View an obstacle as a challenge rather than a problem – Always!

9. Be authentic and true to yourself rather than trying to fit in with other people’s ideals and expectations – This is something that I am continually working with.

By working with the Emperor today I have gained some clear insight on what I need to focus on.

My journey with the Tarot – The Empress

fb9f235cbb8e0b9b282b80f22b8d6499It’s day 4 on my new journey with the Tarot and today’s card is the Empress. The Empress is very much about self-love and self-care, connecting with nature, fertility, and birth.

Life has been incredibly hectic recently and I definitely need some time to chill! Between constant visitor and the house build, I haven’t really had any time to my self recently. I always recommend my clients have an hour a day to themselves, to do something that will re-energise them, revitalise and relax them and it is definitely time I took my own advice!

The Empress encourages us to connect with nature and mother earth and although it is easy to do that here as we are surrounded by nature making time to do that is now important. When we allow ourselves to truly experience the connections with mother earth, our femininity and those around us we create abundance and radiance in our lives. Connection with others is important for me right now too.

It is also time for me to bring into reality all the ideas I have around the business and to implement them. The Empress brings the energy of fulfillment, success, and abundance.

My journey with the Tarot – The High Priestess

7cdb5bc1ac043c924c723af7bd189491 (1)It is day 3 of my journey with the Tarot and today’s card is the High Priestess. She is all about knowledge, wisdom, spiritual enlightenment and feminine energy.

As I gaze at this card I am drawn to the hidden knowledge that has yet to surface. I am asking her to shed light on all that am I not yet aware of. This information will come to me through my intuition, daydreams, dreams or de-ja-vu and it is important that I pay attention to my own inner voice. I know I would benefit greatly right now by spending time in silence or meditation and to listen to get the answers I seek. I know that I need to take the time to re-connect to my higher-self as this is also a time of learning and inner knowledge.

It is time for me to seek out my own truth. To put logic and intellect to one side. The answer I need will be felt, rather than seen.

There is a lot of potential for growth and creativity around me but they need refining and a clear plan of action is needed.

She will bring forward the things I need to deal with in business like paperwork, people to help me, the things that I need will just start to show up for me and she will show me the way forward.

Now is the time to go within, listen and take action.

How I used my Tarot cards to identify and understand my soul client

I have been using Tarot and Oracle cards in my business for a good few years and have been teaching Tarot both privately and through my online course.

As I expand my business I am changing the kind of clients I want to work with. So today I thought I would do a Soul Client reading for myself and here are my results:

What kind of person is she?

6w She believes in who she is and the work she is doing. She is focused on building her personal brand and reputation. She is successful and has gained some public recognition and possibly rewards for the work she has already done and is looking to build on that success and up-level her business. She has harnessed her strengths and talents in order to gain success and is able to focus on the task at hand. She is focused and driven when she has a clear plan.

 

What is she looking for?

1cupsShe is looking for a deeper connection with herself and others. She wants to express herself more authentically and creatively. She has been through various traumas in her life and she is now ready to learn from the lessons, grow and forgive to enable her to re-align with her authenticity.

She is looking to connect with her soul clients on a deeper level and is ready to let go of unfulfilling clients without fear of guilt.

 

 

What makes her happy?

9pShe enjoys the fruits of her labour, success, money, freedom, leisure time and comfort and she is willing to work hard for them.

She likes to reward and pamper herself and enjoys life’s luxuries.

 

 

 

What does she really want?

sun

Success, radiance and abundance. She want to work with passion, happiness, joy and ease. She is looking to grow her business both in terms of money and success.

She wants to build sound business practices and wants to use universal forces to help her so is open to using mindset practices, law of attraction and her intuition.

 

 

 

What is she afraid of?

failure-card-wanda-virgoShe is afraid to fail and loose credibility. She is afraid that if she changes the kind of clients she wants to work with and lets go of the clients that no longer nourish her soul that she could fail.

She has a tendency to negatively invest in the outcome of her new projects, bringing her blockages to deal with.

She needs to let go of the outcomes and learn that failure is just an opportunity to learn and grow.

 

What is standing in her way

towerHer own insecurities stand in her way. Something has shaken her foundations and this is making her question her core beliefs, values, perceptions, behaviours and how she is showing up in the world.

She is going through an awakening and is starting to realise that she needs to get out of her own way, stand in her own power, be who she truly is in order for her to gain the freedom and success she is looking for.

 

 

What keeps her up at night?

kwShe is impatient and impulsive, when she gets a new idea or starts a new project she wants to act on it immediately. She wants her business to be a success but is in a rush to get there, and does not always have a clear plan of action.

She is having her own internal battles with her intuition and ego. She is intuitive but often lets her head take over. Things may look good on paper but if they don’t feel right they are not going to work the way she wants them to.

Overthinking, being impatient, worry, and doubt keep her up at night.

 

What are her biggest struggles?

2pLife is not in balance, she doesn’t always focus on the things she is passionate about or her priorities. She is juggling life and emotions and sometimes she doesn’t know what to focus on. She struggles to with being clear about what is important to her, her priorities  and where to invest her time and energy.

Time management and financial management are her biggest struggles at this point.
