Order a Reading

Time to grow

Today will be less frantic, as my calendar is much clearer than yesterday's. I have only two meetings, then the rest of day I will be allowed to get on with reading my induction documents and sitting amongst members of my business unit, near my assigned buddy. I intend to make a study of the documents and create a list of questions for my manager, who will be away in another city on business for the whole of the afternoon. Fingers crossed that I will be left in peace to try to make sense of my role and work load.

The 9 of Pentacles from the Druidcraft Tarot is the card of the day. I love the lady in her pure white dress, with her bird of prey. She stands in a garden that is just enjoying the first flush of spring, which is unusual, as the 9 of Pentacles card often depicts lush harvest and the meaning is usually along the lines of reveling in one's accomplishments or the secure position of one's material life. 'Generally this card indicates a productive, active and settled life, which is self-assured and spiritually aware,' says the Druidcraft companion book. That's nice, particularly coupled with the early signs of life on the card, which I can't help of course but to relate to my new job. The card does seem to be pointing toward time and space to actually explore the early details of my role, and begin to see the buds of understanding come to life, which eventually will take shape in material reality. 'You may now have the opportunity to pursue solitary interests or paths you have previously be unable to explore' takes on an immediate meaning -- yesterday I was booked solid from 8.30 -5.00 with no time allowed for me to examine my materials or do any reflective thinking. Altogether, I'm unimpressed with the induction program that has been created for me, but there's nothing I can do about it but make the best of it. It will be nice to have the entire afternoon to myself to plow through and make sense of all these notes I was given yesterday and told to read!

  4. That is a nice synchronicity, the early buds of spring and your new beginning :) It's interesting, how close she holds her hawk - in that I see a need to keep one's own counsel...
