I found this meditation to be uplifting. I am confident, I am clear, I am here…

Here’s an interesting group of cards for this week.

Pentacles represent the material aspects of life including work, business, trade, property, money, and other material possessions.

The Knight of Pentacles is all about hard work, productivity, and routine. This Knight is the most hard-working, methodical, and detailed-oriented character of the Tarot deck. He may not be the most inspiring or creative Knight, but he’ll do the work to get the results he seeks, even if that work is highly repetitive or routine. When this card appears in a Tarot reading, you are working methodically towards your goals. You have a plan in place and are sticking to your schedule to get the job done. You may not work particularly quickly, but you are consistent, dedicated, and committed to your goal. Sometimes, the Knight of Pentacles points to the more mundane or boring aspects of life – the daily grind, repetitive schedules, household chores, and other responsibilities and obligations. You may be assigned a project or given a task to do, and you will have to commit your time to see that project through to the end successfully. With the Knight of Pentacles, you will be required to accept responsibility without any complaints or grudges.

The Four of Pentacles asks you to examine your relationship with money. Are you accumulating wealth and investing your money wisely while still enjoying your day-to-day life? Or are you desperately clinging to every coin, afraid to spend your money for fear that you do not have enough or could lose it forever? However, the Four of Pentacles typically accompanies a scarcity mindset, especially with money and material possessions. Instead of spending your cash and enjoying a comfortable lifestyle, you are choosing to stockpile your finances, for fear you might lose it all or someone else might take it away. Your budget may be so conservative or strict that it cuts out many of life’s pleasures. It can also suggest that you are placing too much value on money and material possessions. You may be attached to material things, allowing possessions to become your life. The broader lesson with the Four of Pentacles is to honor and respect money and wealth but don’t become so attached that you lose sight of what’s most important to you: friends, family, happiness, and love.

The Knight of Wands brings about a fresh and exciting passion for a project. When this card appears in a Tarot reading, you are charged up with energy, passion, motivation, and enthusiasm, and you channel that energy through your inspired action. You have a clear vision about what you want to create and, fuelled by your passion and inspiration, you are now moving forward with leaps and bounds to turn your vision into reality. This card is your sign to go for it! The Knight of Wands gives you the feeling you can take on the world! You are so committed to your vision and purpose that you will stop at nothing to bring it to life. As you pursue your goals, your confidence skyrockets, and you realize that your potential is limitless. You can do anything! However, be mindful that the Knight of Wands can express himself as an ‘act first, think later’ type of person. In your pursuit of action, you may be impulsive and impatient, expecting everything to be done yesterday. While you are bursting with energy, you have a tendency to rush into things with little consideration for the consequences of your actions. You may not have a clear plan of attack, hurting your chances of long-term success. If this resonates, find a way to focus your enthusiasm on the activities that will move you closer to your goal. When you have a new idea, rather than acting on it straight away, take a moment to check in and see if it truly aligns with your goals and whether it needs to happen right now. 


The Knight of Pentacles makes me think of the turtle. Slow and steady wins the race. Hard work, repetitive tasks, or mundane chores may make it seem like you are getting nowhere, but sticking with it is the key while the monetary rewards come secondary. When you get that burst or spark of creativity, resist the urge to charge ahead without thinking it through.

This reading speaks to me loud and clear. As I’ve embarked on a lengthy book blog tour, the hard work and repetitive tasks are abundant. I honestly don’t consider the monetary rewards when it comes to writing, as there are few. But at the same time, I am thankful for whatever I receive. I’m waiting for that spark that will send me charging into something new! How about you? Does any of this resonate with you?

When I attended the Tarot and Tea last week, this was the dragon card I received, so thought I’d share it with you. It’s another beautiful card!

Thor's Red, Black And Gold Dragon. Protects you in times of change. A time of rapid transition and transformation. Relax. You are safe.

  1. This reading fits your situation so well right now. It’s amazing. But I am again amazed at how well it does mine too. I just went online with my shop, which I just included on my website. A lot of work behind and hopefully more ahead because of the shop. I am blessed that I don’t need to turn every coin and can build up my business peacefully and with passion and enthusiasm while I can still enjoy life next to it too. So, what a great mirror to my own situation this reading is!

      1. You totally know what you are talking about. I think it is the greatest joy and gift, when you can work for something you feel so passionate about.

  2. How interesting with the contrast in those knights, Jan. I ditto your interpretation as I’m in the same boat at this particular moment. I’m hoping for a little November inspiration and a wonderful peaceful and creative winter. 🙂 Enjoy your tour and get plenty of rest!

    1. I love the sound of that, Diana – “A wonderful peaceful, and creative winter.” And I’m with you about the contrasting Knights. November is going to lead us into our hibernation period, and I’m ready! Yes. tours are exhausting, and this one goes for a while. I’ll need a blogging break when it ends, but hopefully, the effort will pay off. Thank you for stopping by!

      1. My experience is that the momentum sags a little, but each blog has slightly different followers, so it’s worth the time and stamina. Yes, I can’t wait to hibernate too! Lol.


  3. Jan, I thought I left a comment earlier but it’s not here – I suspect WordPress eats my remarks! Anyway, I enjoyed your post and found it perfect for the writers among us, the Knight of Pentacles for the Planners, and the Knight of Wands for the pantsters. I’m a bit of both, but your post reminded me to get going on my two WIPs! Either way is perfect as long as you’re writing.

    1. Lol, Maura Beth. WordPress can certainly be fickle at times. Thank you for taking the time to repost your comment. I love the comparison between the two Knights! And you’re right. I’m a bit of both as well. Best wishes on your new WIPs! I appreciate your comment!

  4. A beautiful reading, Jan. We’ve had a lot going on at my workplace and in my family. Lots of changes and new undertakings. Slow & steady is definitely my mindset right now. Taking one day at a time. Thank you for sharing!

    1. You are right about the blog tours. They are very time-consuming. Like you, I deeply appreciate all the support I get, but will most likely be taking a short blogging break when this tour ends. Thank you for stopping by, Robbie!

  5. A good reading, Sister. You and I have been talking a lot about money. I only want to be paid for the work I’ve done and it’s very frustrating that I can’t get it. I love the positive vibes in these cards so maybe there is hope for a paycheck soon. I’ve never been a big spender so I don’t have that worry. New projects…I have one on my radar that I think will be fun. Love you, Sister.

    1. It is frustrating not to get paid for the work we do. Sure would make life easier. Hope you get a paycheck soon! New projects are always exciting! I know you will enjoy it. Thank you so much for visiting! Love you, too!


  6. I’m for slow and steady. I’ve been plodding away at my short story collection. When I try to sprint, I fail miserably, but taking it slow and steady enables me to “finish the race.”

    Lovely Dragon card!

    1. Awww, I love that, Joan. I feel the same about writing A Beggar’s Bargain. I feel like I’ve been working on it forever as it has been a slow journey. But, I’m almost to the wrap-up, proof that staying with it pays off. 🙂 Thank you for visiting! Have a good week ahead.

    1. All of us, Jill. Only a small handful of authors ever actually make any money writing. I think they have a lot of good karma and a whole lot of luck. 🙂 Thank you for visiting! Have a great week ahead!

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed the post, Harmony. It’s like chipping away at a mountain a tiny piece at a time. But as my late husband always said, “littles makes bigs.” 🙂 Thank you for visiting!
