This week we have a cute deck from Lamb-Lamb in South Korea, the Delos Tarot.
Now: King of Pentacles
This guy is very managerial, always focused on the material. He knows what anything is worth, and what it will require at a practical level. He also enjoys the good things in life, valuing what he can taste, touch, and smell. He has no problem asserting his will: just look at the way he’s treading on that winged feline creature!
I can see where I might need his energy this week. I have to organise things like insurance, as well as managing different time schedules over the summer.
Don’t: Seven of Wands
Tee hee, I like this chap in his fancy purple jacket and matching hat. And I find the wands with little heads on the top reminiscent of pencil caps I had as a kid. This card also matches my preference: you can’t see anyone wielding the other wands. So, though this person is on the defensive, it’s possible that any attack is more in their own mind than in their environment. This fits my numerological understanding of the Fives being challenges around you, while the Sevens are more internal challenges.
This week, then, a warning not to get on the defensive, especially as it may just be me assuming people will disapprove of something I’m doing, rather than that actually happening.
Do: The Chariot
This princely charioteer seems to have no trouble controlling his disparate hobby-horse steeds without reins, he is moving confidently along his path away from the stability of the castle city behind him.
Move forward with confidence, then 🙂
These cards make me think of my feeling that I had to justify myself to the first insurance agent I spoke with last week. I’ve started a couple of things around working as a magical life coach: professional indemnity insurance and some extra training. When people ask in what field I will be coaching, I’ve been saying ‘personal development’. It did throw me a bit the first time, though: how do I explain to a ‘proper professional’ (King of Pents), that I help people make changes in their life using tarot cards and magic?
Still, these cards remind me I can walk this path with confidence, it’s all about my own attitude!
