EXPERIENCING the Tarot 2 OF MATERIALS
All the things – and all of them falling into her world at the same time. She dances a dance of balance and groundedness, rooting her energy into the earth through a shard of quartz crystal. To stay balanced here requires her full multi-tasking attention, because the tip is pointed and wobbly, and the options and responsibilities she is trying to juggle are showing up quickly now. In order to bring all of these falling wishes to the earth, she needs to spend time watching and nurturing each one. But then… that would be impossible… this perfect balancing act of seeing everything, all at the same time. So she floats between them quickly, trying to stabilize. She wants them all and she doesn’t want to choose between them. Or she feels she can’t. Not yet… which is exactly how she ended up right here, trying to find solid foundations on a fluid surface that seems to be shifting up and down. She manages for now, but like you, she knows that this 2 of Pentacles life needs some organizing and structuring if she wants to keep it all working for her in the long run.
What things are you struggling to manage? Time? Resources? Relationships? Desires? Take a spin atop the crystal of stability, and imagine many roses around you. Each one represents one of the tasks or desires that are calling for your attention. Hold them out in front of you one by one, and see which roses bloom and which ones wilt. Which ones brighten and which ones appear dull? What does this tell you about the energy they bring into your life? Spend some time in this meditation, learning what you can about the energy that your tasks are holding.
Hey busy-body! Grab the closest ‘to-do’ list and cut it up. For real… in rows so that you can still see the tasks, if you prefer. Order them from top to bottom, prioritizing them in a way that makes your heart happy. What really makes you laugh? Add some color. Maybe paint. Cross out the crappy to-dos. And take a peek at the art you have manifested into your life with a fresh new list of things to-think-about-doing and to-really-really-do.
