Tarot card of the day from the Angel Tarot deck by Radleigh Valentine
A beautiful winged fairy deposits a coin into one cup of a finely balanced set of scales.
This is the tarot card of giving and receiving.
Pentacles speak of ‘earthly’ things. Of how we go about living our lives. They can speak of finances, health. Our home, family, friends and the work we do.
A large set of golden scales sets the scene of this image. A fairy (elemental, of the earth) shifts coins from one cup to the other to keep the scales balanced.
My attention is taken to the wings of the fairy – they remind me of butterfly wings, and butterfly’s can symbolize transformation and freedom.
On one level, for me personally, this could represent my beloved father who has recently passed into Spirit. He has transformed and is now free to play in beautiful surrounding nature that he so loved.
On a universal level, this card can represent receiving or giving financial loans or surprise gifts of money when most needed. Paying off debts, or being in the position to start raising money for something important.
It can mean (as noted on the card) new career opportunities, or sharing knowledge that you have.
It is being generous with your time, or someone assisting you when you need it.
It can also mean receiving good news about a health matter, or finding just the right information required to improve your health.
This is my personal take on the tarot. When I read the tarot or oracle cards, I will generally take in the image first to see what symbols or intuitive 'hits' jump out, and then will look at the traditional meanings as I have learnt over the years from classes and collected books. My first impressions are usually correct, and it is important that you trust yourself and what 'comes' to you at first glance.
I will continue sharing my cards or readings of the day, and hope you enjoy checking them out! I'd love to hear your own meanings for this card.
