Ten of Pentacles | Three of Pentacles
The cards for April are about family, community, and cooperation. During this time, please heed their message safely and at a distance.
Ten of Pentacles
Imagery: The man, woman, and child are all looking in different directions, not at one another. They are preoccupied. The wise elderly man is wearing a cloak covered in magickal symbols. Only the dogs recognize his blessings and gifts. They "see" him and are connecting with him.
This month you're being asked to take a moment to recognize your many blessings, gifts, and abundance. Acknowledge and express gratitude, not only to the Divine but to the people in your life.
You're busy. Work, home, family, pets, bills, taxes, cars … there are so many things that need your attention … so many details to this modern life. These obligations can become overwhelming and you may find yourself just putting one foot in front of the other trying to keep up.
Every day, please find a moment to stop and breathe. Smile at the ones you love. Be like the little dogs on this card. Find your blessings and appreciate them.
Three of Pentacles
Imagery: Three people are working on a project. Each is dressed differently, indicating they have different roles in this undertaking. I see them as the owner (the monk), the architect (with plans), and the skilled craftsman (with tools). None of these men are more important than the other.
This month think about community and cooperation. You don’t need to have all the answers or do everything yourself. You have certain knowledge and skills that you bring to the table. Other people have their own specialties. By coming together and working cooperatively, much more can be accomplished than by working individually.
Ego wants you to be the best, the top, the one who does it all and succeeds. This is exhausting and unnecessary. By working cooperatively with others, the job is done more quickly and more easily. It also forges bonds that will serve you well in the future.
