Acquistion

When I first started studying The Tarot, I read that all Aces are gifts. So one would think that this Ace could portend forth coming money?  Like Astrology with simple daily newspaper forecasts; there are those that reduce the meanings of the cards into bulk mundane interpretations.

Here I think I am being asked to examine the way I make my money.  Am I satisfied with how I earn my money? 
This gentleman has earned or inherited his money and has invested in gold coins.  Why?  Maybe gold is considered a safe investment, but if the world goes dark what can you buy with gold when food, housing, clothing, candles, and chocolate are more valuable than gold.  So it reminds me to work at something that is satisfying and fulfills me.  Not to work just for the sake of working and acquiring money.  Sure I need a roof over my head and the daily comforts of living, but do I need to think ahead to stockpiling cash?  (Well maybe some)

Every year for the last ten years or so someone in Louisville, across the river from my vantage point, has placed a gold krugerrand in a Salvation Army kettle during the Christmas campaign.  Someone invested and collected the gold coins and now is anonymously gifting.  I guess that is one way to spend your gold.

  1. Sounds like the gold gift-giver knows we can't take it with us, so we might as well share. :)

    1. I will probably not be counting my gold coins. I do try to gift a bit here and there when my heart guides me to do so.

  2. Money should flow and make us happy and yes,some money in our bank account will give us that much appreciated feeling of security. The rest: Spend it wisely. I always need to be mindful not to buy things on whim, which I might regret later on :)

    1. I just finished writing checks for almost all of my monthly bills and I still had some in my checkbook when I laid the pen down. I thought to myself how blessed I am that I can take care of my needs, how fortunate I am to have the means to take care and of being taken care of. The clients that trust me to help them and the income I earn from those relationships. Abracadabra!

  3. When I was parting out personal estates on ebay, one had pennies and nickles and quarters here and there through everything. As she was also a quilter I figured they were perfect circles to copy for applique. I stuck them in a little purse. Then one day there was a gold coin. I stuck that in the little purse too. When I was finished I met Ace and gave him the purse. He laughed and laughed saying he thought he'd looked everywhere for it. But not in the fabric stash :) Ithink it was worth about 5K at the time.

    1. Maybe that is another interpretation; something rediscovered.
