Daily Tarot: Six of Pentacles, Yet Again

The Six of Pentacles is the bane of my existence, as I’m sure I’ve mentioned. It is about giving and receiving, and often appears when I’m juggling bills and other financial obligations. Usually it is a day of struggle, but today has actually been fairly balanced. I’m finally getting a handle on how much of myself I can give now, and how much I need to apply to future endeavors. Invest energy for the now, invest energy for later.

However, the Wildwood Tarot has brought an entirely new perspective on the six of pentacles for me. It is titled Exploitation, and highlights how our choices in the present can cause havoc for future generations. Our use or misuse of our current resources can leave a big mess for our children. Although this is a rather high world view, this can easily be applied to day to day activities. If I’m not getting enough work done, then I won’t be able to give my children everything they need. If I’m not working on my long term writing projects, I’ll never be able to earn an income off of them later on. If I don’t study now, I won’t succeed in college overall.

As I finally begin to get a grip on work/life balance, I am presented with the challenge to balance my short term and long term goals. It is so hard to give myself the space to breathe and work on things that matter to me. I worry so often about the day to day bills. However, time and energy invested wisely will pay great dividends in the future.
