The most precious and irreplaceable commodity that we have is our time, and a great huge whopping chunk of this time is going to be spent at work. Most people I’ve seen have a job and hate it, or they don’t have a job and want one. Either way, if employment is an issue in your life, it will dominate the landscape.
Three/pentacles: Get the led out; put the pedal to the medal; hit the grindstone…work, work, work. That’s the essence of this card, and it’s this topic that is dominated by its energy. Once in a while it can be a reflection of how you interact with fellow employees, but it’s generally a peaceful and mellow interaction, where the cogs are running smoothly and steady progression is being made.
This card wreaks of routine, repetition, timeliness…and sometimes boredom.
Three/wands: There’s a deal in the works, probably involving more than two parties, and it’s usually something that’s been in the works for some time. The thing is, who’s doing what with whom, business wise of course. There’s always one player who seems to have their hand under the table in someone’s lap, stroking the kitty, or sneaking money from someone’s pocket. And there’s usually always a third wheel here; someone who’s left out of all the fun. When this card pops up in a reading, where business or employment are concerned, it’s time to bend over and see who’s playing under the table with whom.
Page/wands: “Unexpected financial news coming through!”, shrieks this card, like one of those old time newspaper hawkers in the 1930’s, screaming the headlines. If he’s on his feet, the news is good; if he’s on his head, you’re screwed.
Ace/wands: If you’re thinking of starting your own business, changing careers or companies, or in any way starting over where employment and a career are concerned, this is the card you want to see. It’s like the green light at a drag race. When you see it, step on the gas, put the pedal to the metal, and roar down the pathway, because it’s clear and victory can be yours at the end of the line.
Just remember, once in a while this card turns up reversed, and it says, “Hang on to your hats, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.” No one ever said that beginnings and change are easy and effortless, and it’s this little glitch that usually catches people off guard.
Eight/pentacles: I don’t know why, but I always think of the cobbler in that fairy tale whenever I see this card. You know the one, the poor little guy who is working his fingers to the bone repairing shoes and can’t keep up with the workload. He goes to sleep one night, dog tired and weary as hell, and something amazing happens. He wakes up to find all of the work finished and rows of sparkling shoes all about his house.
The elves did it.
You can do it too, that’s what the eight of pentacles is telling you: learn something new, polish your skills. You haven’t reached your full potential…yet.
Two/wands: I hope you have a pen handy. You’re going to need it to sign the much anticipated contract that’s coming your way. Unlike the three of wands, most of the time things are above board and on the level with the two of wands. Everyone is playing nice and the sandbox is clean.
