A TAROT DREAMKU ABOUT THE SEVEN OF PENTACLES
the Seven of Pentacles
her own creation
The above little poem is a Tarot dreamku (dreamku are haiku-like poems based on dreams). I had the dream this one is based on in March of 2004. I'm not at all surprised I stumbled across it now, as I am feeling a bit overwhelmed at this point in my life by what I've accomplished and am committed to doing.
The Seven of Pentacles is another (of the many) intriguing cards in the Tarot. It can have polar opposite meanings. On the one hand, it can be about failure, fear of failure, or only apparent failure. On the other hand, it can be about enjoying the fruits of your clearly very productive labor. At this time in my life I feel I'm faced with all of these meanings. LOL!
The fairytale for this card in The Fairytale Tarot is The Brave Little Tailor (see "Resource" below). This is a charming and very appropriate tale for the Seven of Pentacles. What I found particularly striking in the book that accompanies the deck about this tale/card is: "The Seven of Coins [Pentacles] is a call to recognize your own achievements, and take time to consider how best to build on them. It's on the whole a reflective card, although it's also about preparing for the next active steps in any plan or project....[I]t doesn't matter if the things we're proud of in life are objectively major or minor -- what counts is how we see them, and how that affects our relationship to the world."
