07/28/12: Balance Understanding with Action | rev 8 Pentacles, rev 2 Wands


“We work to become, not to acquire.” Elbert Hubbard


The reversed Eight of Pentacles (Sun in Virgo) teams up with the reversed Two of Wands (Mars in Aries) from Mystic Dreamer deck. As both cards are inverted, expect the energy to be blocked or stagnant somehow.  This combo suggests getting sidetracked in professional or learning aspirations, possibly via obsessing over the details to the point you’re missing the bigger picture. Trees versus forest and all that, y’know.

Being SUPER Virgo, I can fall into that trap pretty naturally. I sometimes have to really push myself to let go of perfectionism in favor of the notion that DOING something imperfectly does more than never quite reaching unattainable goals. Just so long as the doing brings one closer, imperfection and all still serves as stepping stone toward greater achievements.

Sun in Virgo will study, plod away, and seek to learn all the secrets of perfection. Mars in Aries will MOVE, sometimes without all or even most of the facts. Combine elements of each of these energies to keep one or the other from stopping your progress.

In other words, YES, study and consider and classify…for a time. But as you do, take steps in line with what you’re learning. Consider it an evolutionary process, and each bit can contribute to the whole. Point taken, Tarot.

Are you satisfied with how your projects are moving forward?
