Wisdom of Pentacles Spread
On This Day
Pope Benedict recently asked Spanish priests to distance themselves from El Colacho to downplay this Pagan tradition’s connection with Catholicism.
Today is the mysterious baby-jumping festival of El Colacho in Castrillo de Murcia, Spain. Dating back to 1620, all babies born in the previous twelve months are placed on mattresses in the street. Men dressed as devils jump over the babies while crowds watch and cheer. The ritual is performed to absolve the babies from original sin.
Summation of Spread
Pentacles represent the physical and external level of consciousness, acting as a mirror of your health, finance, work, and creativity. Pentacles represent our outer surroundings and how we create, shape, and grow our lives from an external point of view.
This spread is informed by the suit of Pentacles, which represents anything in the material world—and that includes people as well as money, objects, and things. The little babies tucked onto mattresses represent Pentacles.
