MONDAY’S TAROT MESSAGE FROM THE MUSE, 4/17/2017.
Theme, 2 of Cups. Cups is the element of Water in the realm of heart, emotions, dreams, intuition and creativity. Two is often a number of partnership and collaboration. This week, look for opportunities to collaborate in your creative work because it has the power to strengthen and enlarge your work. That might mean working on a project with someone, or working with an editor, agent or gallery owner. Not the week to go it alone.
Focus, The Wheel. This Major Arcana card is the Wheel of Fortune, and riding it means sometimes things are going well in our creative work, and sometimes not. The trick is to stay centered so you don’t get thrown but instead reap the rewards. This week, ask yourself, “How can I stay centered in the midst of the ups and downs of my creative work?”
Action, King of Cups. Again, Cups is the element of Water in the realm of heart, emotions, dreams, intuition and creativity. The King is the master of the element so is not overwhelmed by emotions. This week, be the King of Cups, allow yourself to be the conduit for inspiration and creativity but not overwhelmed by it. Keep your perspective.
Gift, The Devil. Another Major Arcana card, the Devil often represents the chains that bind us and hold us back. In our creative work, it can be those places we don’t want to go because of the fears and hurts and angers that loom. But, in the position of this week’s gift, those emotions, those shadows have within them the power to enhance and deepen our creative work. Use the shadows, the dark elements to give power and even playfulness to your creativity.
