06/05/12: Oppressive Stability | King of Cups, 4 Pentacles and the Devil

01-king-pentacles-four-pentacles-devil (534x650)

One of the things I really like about the Transparent Tarot is the impact of layering, one image over another. Even the simplistic artwork, the soft splashed of color, add to the overall impact in a way that doesn’t overshadow the message. Like today. We’ve got the King of Cups (Fire in Water), the Four of Pentacles (Sun in Capricorn) and the Devil (Capricorn). Think there’s some Saturn at work?

Are you sacrificing your heart’s desire, not acting on your feelings in order to maintain a semblance of stability?

When the Devil’s chains are upon you, it’s a good bet there’s fear involved. What are you afraid of?

And speaking of chains…those are your own, not someone else’s. You can change this anytime you see fit. Not that you have to, because you don’t. The point is to make it a CONSCIOUS choice to remain chained or not, understanding the decision belongs to you and only you.

Can you relate?

    Working on cutting those chains, as we speak.

  2. This post is speaking to meeeeeeeee! I’ve seen the Devil a few times for myself lately. Thanks for reminding me that I can un-chain. Hard to believe that it’s true sometimes.

    Yes! I love the layering of this deck too

    I did something yesterday that took a lot out me emotionally helping me to release those chains but now i don’t know how i feel about it!
    In my head it was easier to leave those chains on, but in my heart i knew i had to shake them off…
