Perhaps I have always known everything important but will need a lifetime to discover what I know. Tarot and Oracles offer me guides and sign posts to help me along my way.

"A wise old Owl sat on a oak
The more he saw the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard
Why aren't we like that wise old bird?"
This King of Pentacles comes across as harsh and discerning, maybe frustrated that he has to keep telling me the same advice. He has learned some or a lot of the hard lessons in life and has just tried to keep me from having to endure those same mistakes. I keep hearing my father say, "I might as well talk to the wall, at least it listens." Sure, maybe Life would be a bit easier if we took everyones input and guidance, but then it wouldn't be as much fun. We all need to make mistakes to become the wise old owl.
