A young man is balancing between two yellow pentacles on a beach. It looks as if the tide is coming in. On his shirt is also two pentacles which appear similar to the ones on the ground. .Among the rocks on the shore is a green snake and perhaps a sand piper. In the distance is an island and to the man’s left, a sailboat with the yin/yang sign.
I also get the sense that time is running out here…with the tide moving in and the snake with its eye on the bird, I fear there’s something definitely amiss here.. Is this man trying to formulate something in a slow and steady fashion? With his left hand to his heart, is he putting all his hopes and wishes on them…….does he believe true success comes from working hard for what you get? Will all his hard and persistence work pay off? Will the inner peace and harmony I sense here, guard him against the things that want to disrupt or cause him trouble? I hope so!
I can’t help but wonder why this man is reluctant to move beyond the familiar (two pentacles)….is it insecurity (money) or the need to control all aspects of his life? He’s certainly focused on what he’s doing and he’s definitely not cutting any corners…..he’s doing everything by the book….maybe he’s a perfectionist!
What would happen if he stepped out of the figure 8 and swam to the boat or the Island? A breakthrough perhaps…..and freedom from past hurts……or does this man need continuity in his life, and a steady paycheck…..where time is his greatest ally.
This man would be dedicated to his partner, but if he does suffer from insecurities then a lot of his life, especially the past could be secretly hidden away. He also seems to be a bit reserved….speaking only when spoken to.
