MONDAY’S TAROT MESSAGE FROM THE MUSE, 2/11/2019
Theme, 7 of Swords. Swords is the element of Air in the realm of mind, thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and communication. This seven suggests sabotage or theft of your ideas or creative work. But for your creative work to be of service in the world (the sign of Aquarius on the pendant that the magpie holds), then don’t hide your work because you worry someone might copy it or steal your ideas. Imitation happens, idea theft happens. But your work can’t do anyone any good hidden away in a drawer or shared with just a few trusted friends. This week, be aware of where you may be too protective of work and ideas.
Focus, 2 of Coins. Coins is the element of Earth in the realm of home, health, and wealth, anything you can touch, taste or feel. Two is often a number of choice or decision or partnership. This week, ask yourself if you need to focus more on the business aspects of your creativity–the sign of Capricorn (not Virgo) on the Coin the figure is focused on. What needs your attention? Tax returns? B? If you focus on those, what rewards will you reap?
Action, The Magician. This Major Arcana card at the beginning of the Fool’s journey reminds you to be the Magician this week. You capture ideas from the ether and manifest them in physical form. How many times have your heard someone say, “I think what you do is magic.” If you don’t hide your work because of your fears, you have the ability to create more magic in the world. In fact, that is the only way to beat those who would sabotage you–by continuing to create.
Gift, 8 of Swords. This Swords confirms that it is all about your mindset this week. When you are willing to share your work, focus on the business aspects of your work, and keep creating like the Magician you are, then you receive the gift of being able to free yourself from your fears and doubts. You’ll be able to remove the blindfold and cut yourself free.
