Wheel of the Year Tarot (Lo Scarabeo, 2011).
In this Ace of Pentacles, a little green fairy sits on a harvest wreath holding a large pentacle decorated with an ear of corn. All about are bright red flowers, green grass, and some earth with more pentacles scattered like seeds.
To me, this card speaks of sowing a seed, making a start on some project to do with finances or the material. Investing in the future! That could be starting a new diet or exercise regime, applying for a job, or starting up a new business.
It's strange, and yet not, for this card to come up today. It is the last day of my Masters - an end after two years of hard work. And yet, not so strange, as this marks the start of a new phase on this journey towards a change of profession. There's still a long distance to where I hope to go - I need to finish my last essay in the next two weeks, continue seeing clients, and start work on my dissertation. Still, it's good to acknowledge what I have achieved so far, and to also recognise that this marks a new beginning.
I am grateful for the reminder to give thanks for what is over and look forward to what is still to come.
