This week's tarot card with Penny Harrington is the KING OF RAINBOWS (pentacles) from the Osho Zen Tarot deck. This card in entitled “Abundance.”
In the Rider-Waite deck, the King of Pentacles is shown as a rich man surrounded by the earthly things that show his wealth and abundance.
In this deck, the King of Rainbows shows us that there is more to abundance than earthly things. Here the King relaxes as he floats among the clouds on the Book of Wisdom. All of the four elements – fire, water, earth and air, are depicted above his head. In his left hand, he shows an open lotus, a symbol of femininity and his garments are open, baring his chest and belly, depicting his masculinity.
This king knows that he has everything! He is balanced in the elements and in his male/female energies. When you have that kind of abundance in your life, you have everything.
Some people continually complain that they want abundance in their life. Yet, they are in a constant state of “lack.” You will hear them talk about all the things they lack. They will be jealous of others who have more than they do. They believe that if someone else has abundance it subtracts from what is available to them. They believe that abundance means only material things. They do not understand that if you work on bringing balance into your life on a spiritual level, you will always have what you need.
When this king appears in your reading, it may be a message to you to work on balancing your spiritual energies to achieve abundance in your life.
