Letters From Thoth & The New Era Elements
It looks like we have gone from fiery wands to earthy disks and material concerns today.
Knight of Disks
I love this card, mostly because the Knight's horse looks so happy to be surrounded by all that wheat, while his rider ponders the distance or is maybe thinking about what he wants for dinner. This card is all about, well... food LOL Crowley says this Knight is, "entirely confined to the production of food." You are well equipped to face whatever is in front of you. Now is the time to work and tend to your duties with prudence and serenity to create a pleasant life. Hard work = rewards. Also to note, a lot of time this card ends up being called boring, dull, plodding - but I tend to see it as The Knight is serene and knows what he needs to get done without having to be flashy about it.
5 of Earth
Well that is just... unpleasant. But it does illustrate this card brutally well - this is when we have had everything stripped from us - we have nothing to stand on, no personal power - we are stuck. Trapped with no purpose, helpless and paralyzed by fear. It may FEEL like you have no power BUT YOU DO. Anxiety can mess you up badly and get you stuck in a wheel of fear. This is when you need to realize you have help and you can do something. Focus on one thing at a time, make a list of the obstacles and you may find some of them are not really a problem and can be let go of. You can deal with anything you need to!
So today is a time to keep your nose to the grindstone and focus on your material needs. It may seem like you have too much to do and not enough energy to do it but you DO - don't let anxiety freeze you up, stay focused on what is right in front of you and take things one step at a time.
