(click on the picture to enlarge)Today's card (and perhaps tomorrow's and the next day's) is the 8 of Pentacles. This card is all about hard work, starting projects, and seeing them through to completion. No, this card did not just show up from a random draw. I intentionally chose it in order to bring its energy into my next few days (incidentally, intentional card choice will be the subject of an article I am writing for Tarosophist International Magazine).
These cards are from (in order from left to right) The Gendron Tarot, Tarot of the Sweet Twilight (English and Spanish Edition), and Tarot of the Magical Forest (English and Spanish Edition). I love to do comparative spreads with different decks. It is always so interesting what you get out of the same card from different decks. Which card sings to you? Which card makes you cringe? Different decks definitely evoke different feelings, and it is fun to find out which ones do what, and especially why - although sometimes you never can quite figure out why!
The 8 of Pentacles reminds us to increase the craftsmanship of our work, especially by paying attention to details. It reminds me of the saying, "anything worth doing is worth doing right." Putting in your best effort leads to an increased level of satisfaction and happiness, not to mention an increase in your skills and abilities. After all, practice makes perfect.
So I will take the next several days to practice, practice, practice, and I will see you all very soon.
