Today’s cards speak to our ongoing tension between stability and transformation.
The Ten of Pentacles (illustrated here as an Alligator, with crystals as Pentacles) is steeped in the structured earth energy of Saturn.
Pluto carries the transformational energy of birth, death and renewal. Pluto is power, but where will it’s explosive energy be deployed?
These cards ask us to question where we may have gotten so comfortable in the name of security that we miss opportunities for positive growth or change. It may also point to the responsibility for social change that some still resist so they may maintain power.
Pluto demands that we act on what we know. It reminds us that what has been seen cannot be unseen, and forces us to make changes (transformational in nature) based on what has been revealed.
I must cut to the chase and remind the collective that this is directly tied to white supremacy and how we either complicity uphold or actively dismantle white power. If you are on social media you have certainly seen calls to name the recent shootings as what they are: racially motivated hate crimes against Asian women. One example of today’s energy in practice is ensuring the narrative continues to bring this point home, even as excuses are made for the shooter and his actions. Whiteness protects whiteness and then gaslights those who tell a different story.
We cannot continue as though there is no need for transformation now that desperate cries for change have reached our ears.
