The last couple days have been a whirlwind of me practicing some beginner-level feng shui, which really means I’ve just been moving a bunch of shit around my house. Gotta get those vibes right. Luckily my office space is almost perfect and then I’m going to get some of the witchiest decor my minimum wage ass can afford!
Today’s card is the Five of Pentacles. Looks like somehow, with all the Pentacles I’ve pulled in the last month, there still more Pentacles. Gonna pull like the 23 of Pentacles tomorrow.
Pentacles are materialism and wealth. Fives represent conflict and change. Even in the imagery of this card, we can see a figure walking over a pile of skulls, with some being green and more square that the rest of the skulls. I think the green skulls are supposed to be like art or sculptures of skulls, as they do not exactly have the same roundness as the other skulls pictured. Sculptures and art are usually a sign of wealth; if you are wealthy, you can afford to have fine art in your house, which shows that you have money to blow on the nonessentials of life (housing, food, etc.).
I’m kind of torn on how to interpret this card.
On one hand, I’m draw to the meaning as being don’t be a greedy asshole; don’t walk over others on the path to wealth and financial freedom. Like, don’t walk over others that are in the same position as you and don’t overly hoard your resources so that others cannot have any. But that could be me riding the emotional high of Election Season (scary than spooky season).
On the other hand, I’m reading this as indulge in some art for your space! I know it seems counterintuitive, but maybe we need to invest in our spaces so that we don’t feel quiet so horrible about the place we have to come home to, the place where we’re supposed to be decompress and recharge from the world. So get some art that doesn’t make you feel like the weight of the worlds is on your shoulders for just two minutes of the day. Now don’t go and blow rent money on an undervalued Picasso, but get a poster of your favorite show or paint a mural in your dining room or by that candle holder for $3 on clearance because it looks like a bunny.
I guess this card will speak to you in a different way than me because i think we’re all having conflicted views on the world at the moment. Tell me in the comments what you think this card is showing to you.
