Feeling into the Energy of the Ace of Pentacles
That Ace of Pentacles is a sign that whether you feel you deserve it or not, you are about to receive a gift today. This gift may not be huge or seem significant but if you nurture it, you may find it the seed of lasting prosperity. Not all gifts generate material abundance. Remember the many forms of abundance and consider in what area of your life you truly wish to prosper. Then plant this seed of abundance in that sphere.
Anything that seems to manifest out of nowhere is what we refer to as a miracle. There are Cosmic Laws that explain how and why miracles occur. However, humanity has not reached that point of consciousness evolution yet though some are beginning to grasp these Laws thanks to Quantum Physics.
The Aces and the Colour Grey
The Ace of Pentacles can symbolise a miracle or anything for which we begin the physical process of manifestation. Unbeknownst to the majority of people, the results depend mainly on the seed of consciousness that triggered the process of manifestation. This is why the background in all the RWS Aces is grey.
Grey is a combination of white and black and signifies the zero-point field of consciousness from which all manifestation springs. In the RWS Tarot, Justice (MA’AT) and the High Priestess (Keeper of the Mysteries) can be seen balancing (XI) and guarding (II) the black and white energies (Yin and Yang).
Even for miracles, there is cause and effect. What seems like a miracle springs forth from what can best be described as ‘the veil’ of the High Priestess for most humans.
It is not only my right and my privilege to walk in the abundance God has for me, it is my responsibility… just as it is my responsibility to live the rest of my truth.
~ Jan Denise
