Summary: From the seed of hope has come a fine array of circumstance, yet the final piece has not yet been put in place for the enormity of that to be apparent. Stay focused on the task, knowing that apprenticeship is giving way to mastery, and that your capable hands have what it takes to bring the miracle into being. Be aware that others are having the same experience, and all are on the way to seeing what they’ve carefully guarded and nurtured become something alive, full of sublime realities they can’t quite yet fully comprehend. When finally the righteousness of a clear mind comes into synch with an open heart, trust in that future will reveal wonders.
Eight of Pentacles — Knight of Pentacles — King of Cups
FOUNDATION: Eight of Pentacles
You have the tools. You have the enthusiasm. You have a track record of having accomplished similar things to what you’re now undertaking. Now, do you have the confidence that it’s going to take to get this one done? It’s bigger by far, and bringing you into the home stretch of having completed a full set. Remember all that you have learned along the way of apprenticing yourself to the craft, and bring your skills into focus. You have those, too. What’s been given to you to do has been put into capable hands. Get into the groove of the work, now, and pace yourself. There’s a web of interconnected sentience waiting to receive the final piece, which you now hold. Work diligently and with joy on your task, focused on the vision of perfection that you’ve been nurturing within yourself all along. Nothing stands in your way that can’t be rubbed out with a little loving attention. Keep going. You’re on the right track. Soon, the final arrangement of all the pieces will show that clearly.
LODESTONE: Knight of Pentacles
The promise of success is in your capable hands. Know that eyes are on you now, making sure you cross your Ts and dot your Is. Mind your Ps and Qs, too, for now is not a time for winging it. It’s a time for taking full responsibility for the future. That means thinking not only for yourself, but for those who wait, not yet ready to step into the fullness of activity, not yet able to take good care of themselves. You stand between what must be protected and what must be analyzed for its benefit ahead. Be staunch now, and while you are making sure everything is righteous and honorable, be aware of not overstepping the line into full-blown domineering control. The situation might seem to call for your capable hands to get involved and set things right, but in the long run, that’s not going to help the situation. Be present and watch carefully. The system is righting itself. You’ve been observing this for a while now and have learned some of the secret mechanics coming into play. If you can maintain your steady awareness, you’ll soon be seeing things moving into proper place.
MOST OMWARD DIRECTION: King of Cups
Things are going to come into balance. You can feel that in your heart of hearts. You can see the pieces coming together logically. Perhaps not yet, but you sense that everything is in capable hands. Sure, there are aspects of the whole that are yet out of your field of vision, but the overall coming-together is starting to make sense. Soon, you’ll see that what had been in negotiations, what had been carefully planned, will form a most satisfying situation. The result you’re focused on is akin to peaceful coexistence; take that to mean what it will on whatever level of experience you’re now aware of. Bring the mastery of balance into a new level of inner knowing. See yourself as the highest order of self possible, and rise to it, knowing that the mysteries therein will reveal themselves fully as you pay attention to what’s becoming apparent within. What that reflects on the outside will feel right, when all the hard work and diligence finally pays off. Trust that there’s a plan and the right people in place for your greatest well-being, for just outcomes, and multifaceted harmony. The synergy of heart and mind in balance is going to reveal some surprising scenarios.
THIS WEEK’S CONTEMPLATION
“You are responsible for your own future. We aren’t going to do it for you, but we can help. Knowledge is important, but the most important thing for you now is to be willing to confront your fear and not hover too long near the loveless mirror of your self-perception. Be open with your love of yourself and nurture your royal nature. What you are able to do to save your nest you must learn from OM. We can tell you what we have learned, but you must develop your own crafty ways of needing no one to save you.”
