From the Wild Unknown Tarot, I drew this morning the Son of Pentacles. He is known for his dedication and his loyalty to his duties. For this young male deer a life full of responsibilities is lying ahead. To live this kind of life requires practice al lot of practice. The moon is waning, cradling a pentacle which could become his crown, if he is up to the task. He feels a bit said melancholic maybe; remembering his childhood when life was easy and not as demanding. But this son is dedicated and will put all his energy into the job. He will not boast or be needy of praise. He only then will step forward if his time is ripe and then he will amaze the herd.
When we put all our effort and dedication into a project, determined to see it to the finish, we can be assured of success, which brings me to the rune of today which is Sowilo. This is the rune of vitality, energy, motivation and success. This rune will add the spark of fiery passion to the sometimes a bit predictable nature of the Son of Pentacles. When he feels this energy sparkle inside him, he will know his time has come to step out of the dark shadows and into the light; to claim his birthright and to become the strongest buck of the herd.
