The Mother of Pentacles gives a feeling of calm and nurturing. Depicted is a momma dear and her fawn nestled in the comfort and trust. The Mother of Pentacles is resting laying down and simultaneously completely alert with an air of serenity. Earthly colors of pale green and blue behind her are symbolizing her connection to the physical world. The light purple at the bottom of the card symbolizes her connection with spirit and how she moves intuitively in the physical world. She does not worry about her young because she knows that life will always care for her and her young. This relaxation that she feels in life is what allows her to move with great trust and ease. The Mother of Pentacles asks us to embody a relaxation in our life that allows us to move like water. As this relaxation is discovered we feel life is flowing with pure Grace supporting us.
The trust that is felt from this card is clear. Are we trusting life as we walk our path? Do we truly feel we are exactly where we need to be? Is there a feeling that we are in alignment with our heart and life or do we feel we are going against ourself in some way? This is a time to contemplate and ask, am I fooling myself being at this job or place that doesn’t serve my heart? Or am I walking with spirit completely and not looking back? When we truly start swimming in the stream that life always has available for us we see how the other way we were living was a contracted state, there is no leaving this stream. For the ones who are conflicted in how they are living, this is the time to ask why? Is it too scary to do something that makes your heart happy? Are you not allowing the love to flow from you where you see a vision? Are you wondering about your job security and what your family or friends may think? The Mother of Pentacles says trust. Trust your hearts wishes that have been stifled. One will never know how things could be if we don’t take a leap of faith. Can we agree on one thing? It is a miracle that we are here, is it not? If one takes this miracle attitude with each decision made from the heart, we will see how all things are possible. Only a thought of fear creates a separation that impedes us from doing anything. This is paralyzing for any being and it is why we don’t leave old situations for ones that serve the greatest good. At the end of the day we must ask are we siding with fear or are we listening to the calling of our heart? Life supports us when we listen to our heart. Life wreaks havoc when we go against ourselves. Can we see that? Trust. Trust your inner visions and allow them to flow without hinderance.
One pentacle is directly above the mother deers head. Pentacles represents earthly and material aspects of life. There is an illusion that if we follow our heart we won’t have any material security. This is an illusion that can quickly be seen through when we start opening ourselves to our natural hearts expression to unfold. If you believe that you are secure in a job or place now which doesn’t serve the heart you are only opening yourself enough to be secure in that place. When you open yourself to do what you truly wish to do you are allowing yourself to trust in the miracle of life that is far more secure than anything that is going against your heart. If one is suffering and in pain at a place of work how is that secure in anyway? This shows us that we are not caring about our own well being and are putting a financial security above happiness. We must ask ourself what is more important, our joy? Or a false sense of security in a job or situation that doesn’t serve our heart?
We must be courageous and take a leap of faith with what feels aligned inside.
