I always think of the King and Queen of Pentacles as the “lesser” Tarot parents. If the Emperor and Empress are the ultimate Tarot Mom and Dad, perhaps the idealized parents we see as children (or wish we did!), the King and Queen of Pentacles are the parents you actually got. Pentacles are what physically manifests, real life flesh and blood.
And that Ace of Wands there, in between the two of them? That’s what they built together. It’s the gestalt of their union, what they created as a unit neither would have made alone. It’s the alchemy between them, their composite, that sets the stage for the family.
I’m feeling this lunar eclipse like gangbusters. It’s showing up as Mommy issues, Daddy issues with some baby issues in between. The air is saturated in who loves whom, who supports whom, and who acknowledges whom. Are the parents good enough? Are the children? What did that family unit create?
Your parents probably impact your sense of identity more than any other people alive, for good or ill, and it’s not always a clear cut call, which it is. Hardship and struggle can give positive gifts as well as unwelcome ones. It’s all in what you do with it. Clarity about who you are and what you want in your life is your job to take, using whatever you have to work with as tools. If you’ve got lemons, you know what to do with ’em. No point in just standing around with a sour look on your face when you can open up a stand and make a buck or two off of it.
Are you seeing this, too?
