7 of Pentacles - Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot

Watching the School of Life video below called The Perfectionist Trap, got me thinking about the 7 of Pentacles.

It’s a card that points to a feeling of frustration at not being ‘good’ enough. It can describe the fear that while others succeed, we, on the other hand, are nothing more than failures, or that, at the very most, pale copies of those who are great.

Though it’s true that we’ll often find that we’re not as ‘good’ as other people might be at something, and that we haven’t achieved the notoriety or kudos that someone else in our field may have, not being the best at something is certainly not a good enough reason for not continuing to work at it, especially if it’s something we really like doing.

An important piece of advice triggered by the appearance of the 7 of Pentacles is to persevere, to keep going and not give up simply because it’s not always easy. If you keep at it, you’re likely to be quite satisfied with the results, something you definitely won’t be if you just give up.

And that seems to be what the School of Life is saying too. Take a look …

Today you might find yourself simply working and waiting. You’ve been trying hard but it probably feels like there’s little to show for it.  Keep your chin up!  You are actively creating change in your life, but it takes time.

Try not to get down on yourself while the process continues.  Commitment means sticking through the dull, tough times to reach your goal.  You’re well on your way and it would be a shame not to keep going.  In fact, the hardest part now is not to give up for fear of failure.

There’s still work ahead, but you’re going in the right direction.  Keep plugging away and you will succeed.

George Bernard Shaw, Mistakes, and the 7 of Disks

July 2nd, 2014 § 2 comments § permalink

GBShaw_1909

George Bernard Shaw is quoted as saying,

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”

While thinking about this idea, I decided to ask my deck, “what card might express Shaw’s thought best?”

7 of Disks - Thoth Tarot by Lady Frieda Harris and Aleister Crowley

The card I got was the 7 of Disks, which in the Thoth deck is called ‘failure.’ How perfect.

This seven is all about persevering through our mistakes, and our fears of making more.

It’s about not giving up, but continuing on with courage, even when there’s no guarantee that we’ll succeed.

The 7 of Disks and Shaw’s quote are both great reminders that though mistakes can suck (and not all of them do), there really is no learning, or living, without them.
