Yoga Tarot Challenge: Day 69 | Queen of Pentacles

Welcome to Day 69/78! It’s a relaxing, rainy Sunday so I am slow to start today.

For the Queen of Pentacles, I chose to do Adho Mukha Sukhasana (Easy Pose Forward Fold) because, once again, with Pentacles I always feel the need to be close to the earth.

“The eagerness to excel is fuelled by your own conceit. Material securitylack of openness” (p. 10)

Between the ages of 18 and 25, I compensated for everything I thought I needed to prove to people. Everything I did, I can pinpoint the origin of that insecurity to something negative someone said about me — sometimes to my face, sometimes behind my back.

None of it was true. I even knew the things they said weren’t true, but I felt I had to prove it all to them anyway. So I did. I excelled because of my bruised adolescent Ego.

In a way, I’m grateful to those people, not for the hurtful things they said, but for the foundation it laid. It served me well for many years before it was shaken. I gained material security and an openness to experiences I never would’ve taken if I hadn’t felt compelled to answer to their judgments.

I’m ready to move on. I don’t need others’ paths beneath my feet to find my way home.

In just being a living spiritual being, I am my own home.
