Following on from the Ace of Pentacles, here is my contribution to celebrating the magic of Tarot on this special day:
Learning the Tarot means having to become a little obsessed with it, but in a good way!
Simply memorising card meanings doesn't cut it. You need to connect with the cards on a deeper level, which is easier than it sounds.
One method is to immerse yourself into a card by living it.
Let's do this with the Two of Pentacles.
First, look at the image: that guy looks like he's having fun despite the choppy waters in the background, and he could drop those coins any minute.
And those ships on the horizon are just screaming sea-sickness at me.
But never mind!
He is still juggling and performing this balancing act while doing a little happy dance and wearing a silly hat.
Next, it is time for you to take some action according to the Two of Pentacles.
Be the Two of Pentacles for a day!
Here's what you can do:
1. Strike the pose
Position your body just like the figure in the image (e.g. lifting left leg etc.). Hold a coin in each hand. You can even try turning a rope into the number 8 and wrap it around the coins. See if it works, and how it feels like. If you have a silly hat, wear it.
2. Juggle with some balls (or apples)
Can you do it? Maybe you want to learn it.
Spontaneous dancing in the kitchen while doing the cooking.
4. Ride a bike
The miracle of balancing two wheels in order to move forward.
Many people swear by it, but can you complete all activities you do at the same time to your satisfaction? Are you feeling a little bit stressed out after that?
Play with your children outside, play a board or computer game, play up, play a different role. Swap and change.
7. Skip along while walking
Skipping is such fun. You probably haven't done it in a long while. See how it cheers you up.
8. Surround yourself with various shades of purple
Astrologically, the Two of Pentacles is linked to Jupiter (royal violet) in Capricorn (indigo). Forget fifty shades of grey; you want 50 shades of purple - clothes, flowers, eat purple fruit and veg like blueberries and aubergines, etc.
9. Crystals to work / meditate with: Amethyst and Obsidian
Go on, take one of each and juggle ;)
I am not encouraging you to be reckless with your life savings, just buy a lottery ticket and remember me, if you win.
So here we are, living the Tarot in a crazy sexy kind of way. Have fun trying it for yourself.
