The Four of Pentacles is the card guiding us through the week of
November 18 to 24 2019.
Security and stability are very important at this time, as well as boundaries.
Check your finances.
Do you have debts? Can you handle it?
How reliable is your income?
Do you have enough savings to support you through rainy days?
Pay of some of your debts if you can.
Cut expenses where possible.
Increment your savings.
If you invest your money, favour low to moderate risk .
Christmas is around the corner and you may be tempted to buy extravagant gifts or be more generous than usual.
Balance your book first, so that you will know how much you can afford to spend.
An other aspect of the Four of Pentacles is physical and material security.
Check your home and your car and take care of any maintenance work required, including possible improvement to the security system.
Last, but not least, the peculiar position of the guy in the card of the deck I am using, reminds me of a spider.
After consulting my trusted copy of Animal Speak by Ted Andrews, a few concepts grab my attention.
1)The difficulty and importance to keep balance while we shift from one chapter of our lives to another.
2) The necessity to value both the spiritual and the material.
Reading between the lines, I get the suggestion to walk carefully and with focus.
This is important to me, since it has been a week since I fell walking my dog. The city has yet to clean up the roads or sidewalks in my area and I have found walking very stressful ever since. Today, a fresh coat of snow hides the ice below.
My dog still needs her walks, but I need to be very careful.
Have a great week!
