Self-Care with Ace of Pentacles

Welcome to Self-Care with tarot! Each week we will go over one tarot card and explore how it can be used to inspire a self-care activity for the week. This week is the Ace of Pentacles.


Introduction and Meaning of the Card

SC-p01-01If you haven’t already, you can explore the basic meaning of this card here, from my Exploring Tarot series, and you can explore the emotional meaning here, from my Emotional Tarot series.

With that said, in the context of self-care, I take this card to mean to focus on the foundation of what you have.


My Suggested Self-Care Activity for the Week

Based on the meaning of this card, the activity I would suggest to try doing each day until next Wednesday is to take the time to examine the foundation of your life and bolster it as needed.

This means assessing your resources in all forms and getting them in order. What does your finances look like? Your social support system? Your food supply? Your housing situation? Transportation? Job?

Whatever you consider to be a vital resource in your life, take a good look at it to make sure it’s in a healthy place. If it isn’t, make a list of what needs to be done to get it to where you feel it needs to be. Start working on that list.
