--Hyperion Night, Beanblossom's Tea and Tarot
The Ten of Pentacles
Family. Financial Abundance.
My gut is still busting from Thanksgiving with the family. Guilt is pointless. I know I'll do it again next Thanksgiving, because that's what my family does on holidays. We cook, we eat, we toast our good fortune--and even during the darkest days, there's plenty of good fortune to be found. There's all that food and family for starters.
The Ten of Pentacles Tarot card is Thanksgiving in my mind. On the card, a happy family gathers to celebrate the good things in their lives. This is the Tarot card of home and hearth. It reminds us to count our blessings, and in the future position in a reading, promises good things to come.
The multi-generations in the card reminds us that wealth of all kinds--emotional, physical, spiritual, and financial--is built over time and through our long-term relationships with others. But like anything else, it takes effort, This card challenges us to face how we're doing. What repeated actions are we taking over time to get where we want to go?
When in a "past" position in a Tarot reading, it asks us to consider those relationships and past actions, and how they might be affecting our family and abundance. In a "current" position, it asks us to consider the same and to feel gratitude for what we've got. It's a funny thing, but when we focus on the abundance currently in our lives, more seems to magically come our way. How can we bring the Thanksgiving spirit of family, goodwill, and gratitude into our lives today (minus the overindulgence)?
