Tarot Card of the Day
5 of Coins (Deck: Tarot of the Divine by Yoshi Yoshitani)
The 5 of Coins is typically about lack of resources, or being poor. This lack of resources may take many forms: lack of money, lack of time, lack of people to help, lack of material goods. The person depicted in the image is usually standing outside a church, indicating that help is right there and they aren’t seeing it. So look around! You may have more than you think. Take an inventory of all the resources you have for whatever your need is. Be creative, and don’t leave anything, or anyone, out. You will be surprised what you can come up with when you really set your brain to thinking.
The 5 of Coins in the Tarot of the Divine deck is represented by The Little Match Girl, a Danish Fairy Tale. Very fitting. The poor little girl who sells matches sits outside a church, peddling her matches, but ends up using up her supply to keep herself warm and ends up dying anyway. This is such a sad story. Don’t be the little match girl. There are resources available for just about anything you want to do. Find them. Ask your friends, family, and professionals if they know of resources for what you need. Don’t be afraid to ask.
What is it that you need right now? Sit down with a pencil and paper or a text document and brainstorm! You have it in you to find the resources you need. You may need to get creative and think outside the box, but you can do it. Believe in yourself!
