Sage of Pentacles
As Mercury enters Capricorn today, you may be thinking more about business and financial opportunities.
Meet the Sage of Pentacles, the World Spirit Tarot’s version of the King of Pentacles. He sits on his throne surrounded by symbols of opulence and luxury, including lush foliage, colorful flowers fruit-filled trees and a satiated pig.
The Sage of Pentacles is all about living the good life. Generating income and availing himself to opportunity everywhere he turns. He’s reached pinnacle of success through hard work and determination. He represents power, authority, ambition and worldly acclaim.
This could be you or someone in your life, such as a parent, teacher, mentor or boss. It could also represent a set of values you need to adopt in order to attain your goals.
Where do you see yourself five years from now? What about ten or twenty? What steps are you taking now to manifest that vision? Even though the Sage of Pentacles is a “King,” he didn’t arrive at his station by sitting around doing nothing.
He had to work his way to the top and once there must maintain his position, even if he’s comfortable enough to relax and enjoy all he’s accomplished. The Sage of Pentacles has his feet planted firmly on the ground. He’s a businessman, a entrepreneur, a financial advisor — in general a self-made man.
And while you do want to be practical about putting together your long term goals, you want to be careful not to get stuck in a rut. Just like the King in this card, it would do you a world of good to stop and smell those flowers from time to time. All work and no play isn’t good for anyone, least of all you.
