The Cotd for Wednesday, October 1, 2014 is from the Tarot of the Night by Richard ShadowFox – 2013, Schiffer Publishing Ltd.

Tarot of the Night Page of PentaclesPage of Pentacles:  A methodical and patient person or approach is described in the interpretation of this card.  They will express an open fascination with nature, are adept in financial matters, and possess a thirst for knowledge of any discipline.  There is a duality of natural things and financial matters inherent in the Pentacles suit, and on the surface, this could seem contradictory or conflicting, especially when referring to members of the Court.  However, at the heart of this person or character trait is practicality and diligence, and the significance of being prepared for each step they take upon their path.  The ability to listen and express sincere interest in the intellectual opinions of others may often make them easy to recognize.  For them there are few sources of information that are undeserving of consideration.  (pg. 231) Continue reading
