04/14/13: Pavlov’s Flexibility /rev 3 of Pentacles


“While you are experimenting, do not remain content with the surface of things.” Ivan Pavlov

Pavlov wasn’t studying psychology when he made the discovery that clinched his fame—those dogs and bells, leading to the theory of classical conditioning. He was studying digestion (and won a Nobel prize for work studying digestion). Despite his efforts, it was an accident that created his enduring legacy, coupled with a willingness to roll with the flow.


Okay, so the reversed Three of Pentacles makes me think, whatever you’ve got going isn’t what you planned. Fair enough. But can you do something with it anyway? Because if the card shows up, the energy does too, in some form. Reversed, it’s not being fully expressed. But it’s still there. (At least, that’s how the cards come down for me.)

Rearrange, restructure, be FLEXIBLE, be innovative, be creative. Instead of being mad at what isn’t working, use the change of direction as an imaginative springboard to consider where else you might go instead.

We’d do well to listen to Pavlov. Experiment, and do not remain content with the surface of things. There’s no telling what you may uncover!

Have you made discoveries via plans gone awry?

    1. Hey! Sounds like you’re dissing my felines there, Missy! *snort*

      Maybe Pavlov didn’t have any, but I can say for a fact they do NOT get confused about dinnertime.
