Today's card is the Ten of Coins (Pentacles). Instead of a family, old man and dog, we have Mr and Mrs Corncob, as I like to call them. He is like a cross between the Fool and the King of Wands, while she reminds me of the woman traditionally seen on the Nine of Pentacles.
And that might well be a good combination for this card. To get to a place of material comfort can take the Fool's willingness to take a leap into the unknown, as well as the King of Wands' passion and drive, and the Nine of Pentacles' willingness to work to achieve independence.
After all that, though, we should also remember to enjoy having reached where we are. Of course, there is always further to go, new horizons calling us. Still, for today, it's just about appreciating what we've achieved.
As for me, today I get to enjoy running another Intoduction to Reading the Lenormand workshop. It's taken a fair bit of work over the last months and weeks: organizing the room; advertising in Ezines and newsletters, here on the blog and through tweets; tweaking the presentations (the afternoon section is almost totally new); printing out materials; and plenty of paperwork. Should it still be called paperwork if it's all electronic: invoices and emails etc? Anyhow, after all that, today's card reminds me to honor what I've done and enjoy the day.
I am grateful to be doing fun and enjoyable work.
