The Nine of Pentacles ~ The More I give, The More I Receive
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Nine of Pentacles, representing: Wisdom, creativity and growth. In the Tarot, Pentacles are often associated with money and security, and indeed one definition of this card is financial gain. On a deeper level, the gain implied here lies in greater awareness and self-realization, offering abundant potential to live an enriching and fulfilling life.
“The highest task life sets for us is to realize ourselves. This happens in carrying out the special tasks assigned to us. (What could be described as Dharma—the duty to express and be true to our essential character.) Retreating from your life’s tasks out of fear or a desire to remain comfortable, means denying yourself. Gain comes from giving willing and lovingly. Giving in this sense means also giving yourself to the universe; giving yourself fully to life. The cosmic law of wealth is hereby fulfilled: The more I give the more I receive.
If your knowledge and creativity are filled with love, you will gain from all situations in life. The more deeply you are engaged, the more comprehensive your insights will be.” (Gerd Ziegler Tarot: Mirror of the Soul).
The Nine of Pentacles signals a time of great personal achievement, with the prospect of both spiritual abundance and material success. Ultimately, the message is that the two go hand in hand: self-realization = material prosperity.
Affirmation: Everything that happens today serves my growth. The more I give, the more I receive.
Wishing you a successful week!
