Today's cyber-Tarot: Knight of Pentacles

Knight of Pentacles: earth warrior - adolescent initiation / vision quest. Go back to the time the elders of the tribe should have initiated you into the ways of the tribe - whether you feel they did so successfully, or not. If you feel they didn't, re-initiate yourself, with your own confirmation ceremony, bar- or bat-mitzvah, or vision quest. If you feel they did, relive that wonderful experience now, and keep it alive!

A very interesting and timely piece of advice, Claire. Thank you. I have been discussing exactly this thing with Aidan, who was telling me about problems that he had with his father growing up, which largely remain unresolved.

As for myself, I am in the latter category, having had some time to reinvent myself as well-adjusted. I am in fact celebrating my successful initatiation by preparing a film with the family slides, many of which were taken during my childhood. My father has had them for a long time, and there are many that I have not seen for many years. Showing them to my mother when she comes on Wednesday will be a wonderful trip down memory lane and a celebration of our family. I can't wait. So I see the advice you have given in relation to this card as invaluable, and a great inspiration to foster a wonderful experience.

I thought particularly of Aidan, when this card turned up; maybe he needs to his own vision-quest? And "adolescent initiation" does not necessarily amount to a nostalgic exercise; it seems very much oriented to the present, and the future, namely coming-of-age into full adulthood ;-))

I only ever had one significant "vision quest", years and years after my so-called confirmation: it culminated in a very special and personal epiphany of Grandmother Spider to me! (a very, very late bloomer, with a protracted adolescence, coming-of-age took some time to catch up with me) ;-))
