MONDAY’S TAROT MESSAGE FROM THE MUSE, 12/4/17
Theme, 8 of Swords. Swords is the element of Air in the realm of mind, thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and communications. After that Full Moon in Gemini on the 3rd, it’s no wonder the theme for the week is communication, especially with yourself. See how the woman seems helpless, caught in a web. That’s the web of her own making, her own beliefs and attitudes about herself and her work. This week, look for the opportunities to remove your blindfold about your creative work and situations, and truly see what you need to do if you want to change and move forward. You can free yourself.
Focus, King of Swords. Such a different stance or feeling from the previous sword card. And no wonder, the king, after all, is the master of the element. He stands on an elevated platform, and does not need to threaten with his sword, just hold it point down. Power and confidence are in that stance. This week, ask yourself how you are the master of your creative work, and perhaps even how you are the master of the messages in your mind…if you remove the creative blindfold.
Action, Page of Swords. Yes, the story this week is all about the mind and communications. The Page is the youthful, energetic messenger, moving from place to place in the castle, delivering his messages, running errands. The two swords on the pillow suggest you might consider two ways or formats to deliver your message about your work. It does no good to do the work and not let others know about it. So, take action to get your work out there, to let people know about it.
Gift, 7 of Swords. Another and fourth Swords card. In the light of the Full Moon, the burglar has a way to break in and break through to get what he wants, those two swords hanging on the wall, echoing the two swords of the Page. This is not the week to do things the usual way. Because it is in the position of the Gift card this week, the 7 of Swords might very well bring you new ideas and breakthroughs in your creative work relating to those two swords. Might be gifted at night while you are dreaming (the Full Moon) so keep pen and paper handy.
