two of pentacles
~Balance~Stability~Going with the Flow of things~Enjoying what we have in our lives~Recreation~Budgeting~Smooth Sailing~
You could be entering a period of smooth sailing this week. The theme of this card is achieving or seeking balance and stability. Emotional/Physical/Financial balance and stability. Balancing work and play creates balance and stability in our working and home life. Balance in our finances creates balance and stability in our physical lives as well as our emotional lives. How often does worrying over finances cause stress and instability in not only our physical lives, but, also in our emotional lives? It is also about change. Not only how to stay afloat during times of change, but also, how to enjoy ourselves while doing it.
When we draw this card, we may find that we are faced with a change of some kind. But instead of throwing us off balance… we find that if we just go with the flow instead of fighting the current; we can not only ride out the storm with little to no damage, but, we might even find the change refreshing and rejuvenating! To many of us, change can be scary. Making us feel overly emotional and out of control. Don’t fight it. Change can be just what we need when things get a little too predictable, tiresome or stale. Rather than reacting with a knee jerk reaction such as fear, instead, try to calm down and just go with the flow. Stop fighting the current. You will find life much easier to take and you just may surprise yourself. You may find how enjoyable riding the current can be rather than battling against it. Would you rather float down a lazy river on a hot summer day or wear yourself out trying to swim against the current? Life’s that way too. Really, really.
This week you may be feeling a financial pinch and may need to create or stick to a budget. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t enjoy yourself or that you need to close the purse strings completely. This just means that you need to feel gratitude for what you have and in the process, perhaps find new ways to use the resources you already have at hand. It can mean creating and sticking to a budget. Spending less while enjoying yourself more. Try your hand at crafts or DIY projects rather than purchasing something ready made. Learn the fun art of re-purposing things you already have on hand. Go to Pintrest or like websites to create something new and beautiful out of things that were just laying around taking up space. Make some gifts by hand or draw/paint some handmade greeting cards. Fun and practical! Or perhaps instead of buying tickets to a movie and/or going out to dinner, you might dust off that old racket you had in school and head to the tennis court and volley a few sets. Grab the bike out of the back of the garage and take a ride. Put on your walking shoes and take a stroll around the neighborhood after dinner. Do something physical to get your body moving AND enjoy yourself for little to no cost! This is how we not only survive the ebbs and flows in our lives, but learn to actually enjoy them while creating a state of balance and stability. Go with the flow and you will find your life to be smooth sailing. Even when things get hard, use the resources, people and tools you already have in your own being and at your disposal to manage. You’ve got this!
