Card of the Day: King of Pentacles, reversed.

It’s really interesting that whenever I pull a card for myself on a work day, I consistently pull rulers (kings, queens, the Emperor, etc.) These clearly speak to my job and my role as a leader of people and a business, and have been a great reminder to always have that mentality in mind even when I want to play the Fool and shirk my responsibilities for something more fun or easy going.

Today’s card is that of a nurturing ruler who is grounded in his work and beliefs. He is steady under pressure and always tries doing what’s best for his subjects. Outside forces, however, block his well intent and he needs to be careful not to be too easy going or let people push him around. Just because his desire to help is greater than his desire to rule with an iron fist does not mean he won’t do what’s necessary when push comes to shove!
