Seek out an environment where your voice is as important as everyone else’s. Or, you should seek out new colleagues that create a fun environment. Remember, if you feel that your skills are not being fully utilized, and if you are depressed because of this, you can always change the situation by making a bold career move.

About The Pentacles

The Pentacles are all about rewarding efforts and the physical world. The Pentacles deal with our physical abilities and talents; they are about the relationships to personal service, as well as offering physical rewards for living those experiences. The ultimate quest shall be for the wisdom and the power to serve others, not the self. The Pentacles are the element of earth (think down-to-earth), the season of winter, the direction of south, and the colours green and brown.
