Man, doesn’t this image speak volumes? Who among us hasn’t been that little kid—feeling a bit scattered and unkempt, not tall enough, not good enough, locked out? Or maybe he’s locked in, looking out. Either way, he’s on his own and he knows it.
This version of the Five of Pentacles (associated with Mercury in Taurus) especially resonates with me. It’s my life, right there. The other people? They were the ones who were always in the know. They knew the “truth,” whatever that means. They made the right decisions, had the right jobs and mates and houses and education and background. Now, it’s the ones who have had the training and the insight and the special declarations from Spirit, walking around knowing exactly what they are doing. Just ask ‘em! Or don’t. Stand still 3 minutes, you’ll hear about it anyway.
Me? I’m not special. I didn’t get “the gift to see through the veil” from my Great, Great, Great Grandma thirty-thrice removed. I didn’t have a near-death experience with a suden “awakening.” I didn’t dance with ghosts or see auras bouncing through the walls as a child. Angels didn’t wake me up blowing a horn in my ear one day to tell me I was off to save the masses by speaking THE truth.
I’m just a chick who has always been fascinated by the magical world. I’m a chick who FINALLY grew up enough to not worry who would think I was crazy talking about that world, really looking at it, you know?
I’m a chick who stopped asking why I wasn’t on the other side of the gate and started LIVING, on my side of the gate. I’m not here to tell you “THE” truth. I’m here to tell you MY truth. I’m here to encourage you to find yours. If we happen upon the same side of the gate, maybe we can hang.
Have you ever felt like this kid?
