Ace of Pentacles Moon Void Tarot

Learning Mindfulness from The Ace of Pentacles

I draw Ace of Pentacles today using the new Moon Void Tarot deck. Aces are happy news and blessings from the Universe. The Ace of Pentacles relates to earthly matter such as finance, career and health. It usually comes bearing gifts — from good health, job promotion to financial windfall.

Nice! I like unexpected gifts.

I also like Aces, and of all the Aces in tarot, Ace of Pentacles is my favorite just because it’s somewhat more tangible compared to other suits. And as someone who believes in Law of Attraction, drawing Ace of Pentacles turns the day to fun scavenger hunt moments. It urges me to be more mindful throughout the day so that I can spot the Universe’s gifts for the day. At the same time, I tend to be more grateful on my Ace of Pentacles days for the same reason as before, mindfulness.

So far here are the things I identified as the Universe’s gifts today: refund from VicRoads, refund from another company, new-to-us delicious Srilankan food delivery service and grapes on sale in Woolies.

Btw, the Ace of Pentacles on the Moon Void Tarot deck resembles the Sun and today’s weather has been delightful. I can sense a rainbow is in the making.

Maybe I will go and sit on the balcony with a cuppa and my current read for a while.

Mental Health Day Off

It’s 1 AM now, officially the beginning of the second work week and I am not looking forward to it.

I wish for: a 36 hour day with 8 hours work a day (not sure I am going to agree with this tomorrow, when sitting in my cubicle, wishing for 15.09 to turn to 17.29 in a blink), for a better office neighborhood, for more self-discipline, for bigger paychecks, for funkier colleagues, planned and prepared week meals, for a quick easy fix for nagging errands, I can meet my parents anytime I want, for occasional silence, for creative juices. I wish for wittiness, wish for wardrobe manager, for better time management, for an updated CV, for smooth skin, for more positive experiences.

I wish for one more of mental health day off“, I told Fafa. “What would you do?” he asked.

I would read, go to the library, write, journal, pray, organize, prepare, buy groceries, cook broccoli, hang my clothes, meet my friends, swim for a while, update my CV, clean, play with the chicks, rabbit and a little chicken.

This Sunday wasn’t enough for me. I wish for optimal weekends, not the repetition of doing nothing, including going to the mall again and again. And feeling low at the end of it.

I want days filled with three things that make me happy, as suggested by Yoko Ono. I wonder what kind of things she has done to make her happy?

Anyways, I am really contemplating taking a mental health day tomorrow. It will be good for me.

Work work work. It has been two weeks since I experienced an evening outside. Year-end closing gets our full attention.

9 AM to 9 PM work seemed like too much to ask, instead we reach home close to midnight these days.

I see either fresh, but tight or loose but tired faces of my teammates.
