This past week has kicked my ass, but I am refreshed and ready to go today! I think that’s one of the coolest things about witchcraft; if you need to take a break from practicing, you can and you should, and that’s so refreshing from the constant dribble we’ve been fed since childhood of ‘if you aren’t doing somethng all day every day, then you’re not being productive.
Today’s card is the Seven of Pentacles.
Sevens represent faith, understanding, wisdom. Considering how late Sevens occur in the suit, the Sevens are mostly there to show how far you’ve come on your journey and understanding what you’ve learned so far in your journey. Pentacles represent materialism and wealth.
In the card itself, we can see a man behind an abacus, tallying out some number or some worth. We can only wonder what his real figure may be in his head; however in my mind’s eye, I see the worth of my life. He is tallying on Dia de Muertos, as we can see on the banner behind him. Dia de Muertos is the celebration of the dead and what they did while they were alive.
For today, I’ll take away the fact that no matter what everyone thinks of me, I know my worth. And I know that my life is not always worth what others deam (minimum wage job, anyone?) . I’ll remember that today I’m worth much nore than they pay me to give myself to a faceless corporation that holds no love for me.
