SEVEN OF PENTACLES
I have pulled this card before in this deck.
It’s a card that says wait and watch usually, as if you would need patience, perhaps at the end of a project while waiting for inspiration to grow for another. But I also like this as an example of contemplating what you have done and what you have. Question what you need, or realize that you don’t need anything—that sort of reflection.
I was thinking about that yesterday and said to my husband I have every supply and book imaginable, so I can usually start things without needing to buy supplies. There is a relief in that but it can become burdensome if you buy too much.
Last night I was reading some blogs by doll collectors. Many seem to buy the same doll sculpt with different hair or colour of eyes, but it’s the same face. It gets a bit creepy when you see 8 of these clones standing together. I found that with the Tonner fashion dolls, people would have glass cases full of the same doll in different dresses, but the same face and different hair. It’s like the girl in this card with all those shopping bags that look the same. Different bag colour, same shape, same pentacles. How much of the same thing do you need?
