Working with 4 of Pentacles

I recently purchased TAROT OF THE NEW VISION and I am learning so much! This deck is so unique because it takes the traditional RWS deck and paints all the pictures from the opposite prospective.  Examples: 

THE MAGICIAN/HIGH PRIESTESS/THE CHARIOT  

THE MAGICIAN/HIGH PRIESTESS/THE CHARIOT  

Seeing these cards I know like the back of my hand from these new perspectives has totally brushed the cobwebs away from my tarot studies! I'm seeing things in a whole new light and I'm loving it.  

Let's look at the 4 of Pentacles:

When I saw this version of the 4oP it took on such a deeper meaning than being frugal, stingy or greedy with your resources. I realized this card is about making small sacrifices for big dreams. It's about going without today, so you can have something better tomorrow.

It's about self discipline and reaching goals at a slow but steady pace!

This is a card for young couples saving for their first house or someone gathering resources to start a business! This is a starting card. A card where being financially minded is of utmost importance.

This is a check point card one that says "yes, you have come a long way, but you still have a long way to go." 

If you have big dreams your  on your horizon pull this card from your deck and do your own study! Place it on your alter and allow the energy of this card to envelop you! 

What decks have blown your mind and gave you new perspectives on tarot meanings? I'd love some recommendations!

Earth and The Suit of Pentacles

Earth represents practicality, stability and materialism. Earth is the structure and discipline required to reach our highest aspirations.It is a stable element that supports and absorbs its surrounding energies. This element has the power to build you up or shake you to your core. Earth is most beneficial when it is structured, but it knows what it needs just like nature and should be left to its own devices. Earth is everything physical: stones, trees, bodies, mountains, animals, the planet, our physical realm and dimension, time, money, work, family, career, choices, experience and existence. It is practical and logical and measurable. Earth is order.

Earth is connected to Mercury, Venus and Saturn. Mercury is the planet of communication, intellect and mischief. It can be very telling of love language and communication style. Venus is the infamous planet of love and beauty. Abundance surrounds this planet and she is very generous to those who fall under her sign. Saturn is known as the karma planet. For every action there is a consequence and Saturn never forgets. But! Saturn is fair and rewards hard work and kindness three fold. So pay it forward. 

Suit of Pentacles:

Pentacles are associated with the Element Earth and represent the qualities and traits of the three Earth signs in the zodiac: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. 

Keywords: Body/Material 

This suit is slow, steady and calculating. Pentacles are mature, practical and determined in what they want. They like life to be stable and routine. They are very focused on family and have a good grasp on finances and resources. They are driven and capable, willing to work hard for what they want. They may be quiet about their ambitions but they move closer towards them everyday. Pentacle energy is soothing, predictable and grounding. This suit is lavish and navigates well through the physical realm.
