Card of the Week: King of Pentacles / Bison

King of Pentacles / Bison card from Animal Totem Tarot.

This week’s card was drawn from Animal Totem Tarot. The card I pulled was King of Pentacles / Bison.

This card depicts a bison proudly showing off his prizes of a gold pentacle and a crown hanging from one of his horns. Scars on his face show that he had a tough fight to win his achievements.

Bison is a survivor. He can thrive in the most harsh conditions, and was almost hunted to extinction. No matter where Bison finds himself, he knows he can conquer his surroundings. This is the energy of the King of Pentacles…confident that you have the resources and instinct to obtain what you need. You may need to scrap, fight, stand your ground, but you innately know it will be worth it once you have manifested that which you have fought for.

Message from Bison:

“Where you are is as good as it is going to get until you can master the here and now. In this place, you have all you need to tether yourself to a past that can no longer sustain you or provide you with the tools you require to build a life fit for a king. The secret is to stop looking at what is around you and start focusing on what is inside of you. For it is the conditions of the inner landscape that determine the outcome of your physical world.”
