|Five of Pentacles (R) - Accept this Karmic lesson and
understand your burdens. Don't give up - look for the new opportunities
created by this "set-back". Recognize that "worry"
takes you to the future or to the past and has you totally avoiding the
present. Stay in the present and handle things as they come up. Don't get
pulled into the "what-ifs" of tomorrow or the "if-onlys"
of yesterday. You are experiencing a deep spiritual need - go deep within
and seek "inner" council. Your preoccupation with the past and
the future has you totally avoiding the issues at hand. When you have
accustomed yourself to suffering - a collapse can release you. Whether or
not you can build something more positive from the collapse depends on
yourself and the influence and opportunities around you. When you find
things difficult to understand - show more empathy and do not allow your
sense of "pride" to stand in your way. Remain positive and look
ahead - your present situation is never permanent.
Not using the positive potential of a period of rest. Too much movement when stillness is required. Restlessness itself, hastiness, carelessness. Looking at physical losses instead of gains - this is an effect of mind on the Physical Plane. At one extreme there are things like apathy, ambivalence, laziness, stagnancy and the problems that derive from lack of movement. When money doesn't move the economy falters - personal finances suffer. When you do not exercise your muscles - they atrophy. If you don't move the proper foods through your body, your health suffers.

What conventions/traditions are you rebelling against? What inequalities or injustices are you trying to change?
