Four of Earth (Sphinx)

Four of Earth
Dark Goddess Lodge
First Impressions:  This is a beautiful card and the essence of the four of pentacles is captured with the Sphinx sitting on the golden towers. All seeing, guarding treasure

Book: How you define your life limits your life, you are asked to define and claim your life, life is about more than one possesses, it is about what one leaves behind.

Guidance:  Definitions work two ways, helping you understand reality and separating your perception from reality; find your own reality, define your own reality, honor what you have to work with.

Journaling: 

I am intrigued by this card as the traditional four of earth (pentacles) is about being a miser and hoarding.  I'm wondering if the wisdom of this card is that if in hoarding wealth or knowledge it doesn't grow.  When we nurture our wisdom and money without hoarding it, they can grow and change and become something else.  I like the idea of redefining a position based on moving words around and challenging beliefs.  I am finding that as I choose to do affirmations and open my heart and mind to new ways of thinking, life starts to change.  It is also about being honest and being willing to ask for help and accept guidance

It is amazing how making a deliberate decision to change our lives, then doing the magickal and physical work to make that happens really helps.  I'm choosing to let go of the past and doing affirmations and spells to make that happen.  I'm also making deliberate decisions to not put myself in situations that will suck me back int my longings and old behavior.  It's really hard, but every time I make a decision to not do something, to not visit Chicago, to not make a phone call, to not text, etc., I feel better about myself and that makes it easier to make the right decision the next time.
