MONDAY’S TAROT MESSAGE FROM THE MUSE, 11/5/18
Theme, 7 of Cups. Cups is the element of Water in the realm of heart, emotions, dreams, intuition and creativity. Seven is the number of contemplation, seeking, questing and, in the tarot, action. This week, it’s time to eliminate distractions and contemplate where you need to put your energy and focus. Too many distractions tempt you from working on the project that needs your focus and energy right now. Be aware of when you are tempted to do something else, the thing that seems more interesting, more attractive, easier, more immediately rewarding.
Focus, 4 of Cups. Again, in the suit of Water, in the realm of the heart, dreams and creativity. Four is a number of stability, foundations,and structure. Where is your focus this week? Is it on work that needs completed and launched into the world, or is it on the new idea that seems to shine brighter than the others? Do you need to eliminate distractions and focus on the other three first in order to build stability in your process and career or is that bright cup a necessary missing piece?
Action, 4 of Swords. Swords is the element of Air in the realm of mind, thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and communication such as teaching, speaking and writing. Four, as in the last card, is about stability and structure. Here, your action is no action. Not only are you to eliminate distractions but also give yourself time and space to get quiet in order to rest, renew, and be receptive to dreams and inspiration that will feed your work. Your Muse needs you to stop and listen.
Gift, 5 of Wands. Wands is the element of Fire in the realm of spirit, creativity, career and work. Five is the midpoint, a place of challenge and conflict. So how can this combative, fiery card be a gift? If you eliminate distractions and give yourself time to receive inspiration and insights, then you are ready to receive the gift of establishing priorities for yourself and your work. You won’t feel so conflicted about where to put your attention, your time and energy. The inner battles will stop. And that is a gift.
