Today’s meditation was 10 minutes long, and focused on making a choice to reside in the present and mindful in the moment, rather than allowing future worries and concerns or past traumas to pollute your mind and emotions with stress and anxiety.
Sometimes, in the face of stress over the future, we forget just how sweet the current moment is. Today’s meditation was a reminder to stay mindful of the present and don’t get carried away with things that are either already over, or have not even come yet into existence.
Today’s draw is the Three of Pentacles, which is a representation of collaboration, cooperation, and the small gains and growth in the area of the physical world, finances, manifestation, and resources.
The Three of Pentacles reminds me of our relationship. Not that there are three people in our relationship, but rather that there are three entities… the you, the me, and the us.
This is not the suit of emotions and relationships, mind you. That would be the suit of Cups. But, I feel that this suit fits our relationship better. For me, our relationship isn’t based on emotions. I’m not saying that love and emotions are not there, as they absolutely are. I’m saying that our relationship feels like home. Solid. Substantial. Supportive. Stable. All of these are a reflection of the suit of Pentacles, and that, to me, is where our relationship resides.
The Three of Pentacles speaks of how differences come together to create something better, collaborating in a way that each side contributes its own particular brand of expertise to the whole. The you, the me, and the us.
Each on our own are forces to be reckoned with, and we are both very, very different. But, what we have built together is also its own thing. It is “US” and that, too, is powerful and strong in its own right. It is the blend of two that creates something with a life of its own. Our life.
Today’s appearance of the Three of Pentacles isn’t a lesson, but simply a reminder to appreciate the us… and the you… and the me. All three distinctive factors, unique and essential in their own right, that when combined together create something bigger and more beautiful than any one could have done on its own.
I love you.
