This Six of Pentacles turned up four days ago as well.
It is hard for me to look at this card, and not begin passing judgment, particularly on the merchant and benefactor who seems to be distributing crumbs from his excess to the paupers, and standing over them in am overbearing posture.
This morning, for the first time, I thought of the scene as merely an unfolding of karmas. Each of the characters depicted is exactly where they are supposed to be based on the great law, and the way that each of them acts in this moment will bear on their future.
So the message, for me, at this time, is to do my best not to create any further negativity in my life or in the lives of others, and most of all to refrain from judging others’ actions. We all do the best we can with what we have to do with, and we all have our stuff to work through.
