One thing I’ve noticed about humans is that we like things black and white. Most everyone is uncomfortable with the many shades of gray in between. Why is that? Why do we have to make a decision or form an opinion on so many things when really we can just keep our minds open to many possibilities? I don’t usually care what team wins the game, which church has all the correct answers, which diet is the healthiest, which political party is correct. Almost everything has its pros and cons. Fence sitting is just not allowed in our culture. But what’s wrong with fences? When you sit on the fence you can see and enjoy both sides and have a much better view.
The Two of Pentacles says it is time to give up “either/or” thinking and try “both /and”. Our guy is doing a little dance with two opposing values. He is going back and forth, back and forth like a game. Even the ships behind are joining in by going up and down, up and down. But wait, the values are in a lemniscate, the infinitely loop. This loop is helping to keep the opposites in balance and continuingly moving without strain. The loop crosses at the level of his heart which shows that he is keeping his heart open to possibilities.
There are times life is a bit of a balancing act but he is managing to hold on, the ships are navigating fine. No one is drowning and he seems to be having fun keeping his values flowing in life. He is handling his possibilities and his tall hat indicates that he is using his intuition and getting guidance from a higher source. He is standing on level ground and his lovely leather jacket indicates that he values lasting qualities in his life.
So when this card show up you know it is ok to just keep your options open and hold two opposing views. It is not time to choose. Do a bit more fence sitting and realize that you can just enjoy the game of life.
Blog Updates: This week is the second anniversary of this blog. Here is a link back to the very first article and my first step. It was hard to push the publish button the first time but I’m glad I did. I enjoy sharing my life and experiences and appreciate all my readers. My whole life I avoided writing and I’ve never had a Facebook so stepping out in the blog world was big for me and defiantly a life expanding adventure. We have a whole universe to explore so I’m not stopping anytime soon.
Last week I wrote the prophetic line: “Caroline will do something none of us have ever thought of”. Two days later she proved me right when her desire to make some money went viral on the internet. You can read about her 15 minutes of fame here.
