The Daily Deskhenge:
Today’s deskhenge follows the same basic pattern as yesterday’s: energy coming in on the left, energy going out on the right. Now, from my current mood/state I would have thought that the cards would have shown more like “Sleepy” and “Dopey,” those whimsically off-kilter dwarves who never seemed to catch up with the day yet who always managed to handle their dwarf axes without accident. I’m completely off-kilter today, but the messages in the cards again show a lot of movement (meaning I have to shoulder my axe and try to catch up with the day without tripping and decapitating myself… Good luck with *that*…). The knights in the Tarot may be read to represent how energy flows or moves through life–yesterday we had the Knight of Swords in this position bringing speed and hurtling forward motion with him. Today we have the Knight of Pentacles (on the left), who while he represents movement, is the slowest of the Knights. His horse is at a standstill, and he’s taking time to review what’s in front of him. Actually, while all the knights are focused on their objectives, it’s this knight here who seems to want to *STARE* the Pentacle he’s holding into submission, like he is making a commitment to completing his task come hell or high water. He will roll up his sleeves (after taking his armor off, of course) to get to work. He knows there’s work to be done, and he sees that there’s light left in the sky to do it by. So now is the time for action: set those plans in motion. Do something, and get moving. The energy that’s leaving (the 10 of Cups on the right) is the energy of overwhelming emotion. You’ve gone as far as you can go, and you might feel spent and exhausted by all that you’ve been through. So now is perhaps the time to throw yourself into those physical activities. Let your heart rest, dry your eyes, and be like the Knight of Pentacles: slow yourself down to a walk (or a complete stop), check out your surroundings, make a plan, and then implement the plan. Create. Make. Bring to life.
