Time to grow
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!
