For today I've drawn the Seven of Pentacles from the Joie de Vivre Tarot by Paulina Cassidy When you could use a lighthearted and cheerful message, this a deck which will always be one you can count on without being too cheesy.
For each card the artist has written a little story about the characters in the picture. For the Seven of Coins it goes like this:
“A pair of fairydeer, Gratitude and Honor, planted a tiny seed. Through thick and thin, they were dedicated to nurturing this tree through its stages of growth. Ultimately, their seed had grown into a monument of beauty and grace. They pause for a moment of contemplation, reaping the rewards of their hard work.”
The two fairydeer are aspects of ourselves which are vital when working on a long term project. Honor and Gratitude are what keeps us going when we commit to an idea or an intent: a tiny seed of love we sow and care for. It will grow and develop and during this process we can be proud of ourselves for our commitment and achievements. Sometimes it is good to pause to see how far you’ve come. Although you are not there yet the change is evident. So pause, reflect and think back where you came from to see how your seedling has developed and grown stronger. You don’t have to wait for your goal to have been reached. Just tend to you seedling with honor and take pride in its development. Enjoy the process moment by moment and count your blessings every step along the way.
Affirmation: Today I am going to take a step back and look at my “garden” with honor and gratitude
