For this first draw we have the King of Pentacles and "Choices". The King of Pentacles shows a man in a green robe, seated on a throne. His surroundings shade from mustard on the floor, to a warm, light brown above his head. He holds a huge, wooden circle with an eight-pointed golden star as his "pentacle". Above him are leaf-like decorations, and at his side a unicorn lies, rubbing its head up against him.
The unicorn recognises this King's strength and ability to provide food and warmth and other material comforts. It seems like the King offers physical comfort to the unicorn, but I wonder if it doesn't go both ways, like with cats :)
Combining the message from both cards, there could perhaps be good advice coming from someone grounded, mature and practical. Or perhaps we need to make choices today from that place of practicality and focusing on comfort and well-being. The negative side of the King of Pentacles includes a certain hedonism: self-pampering can be good and necessary, but it can also slip into overindulgence. May our unicorns guide us to the healthiest choice for ourselves today :D
I've been feeling pretty tired the last week, not sleeping well. Today I will take things as easy as possible, because if I'm exhausted I can do no-one else any good, either. And I heed well the warning to avoid overindulgence - it's easy to substitute food for sleep, but not very effective.
I am grateful for some time to take things easy.
