MONDAY’S TAROT MESSAGE FROM THE MUSE, 9/18/17
Theme, 7 of Cups. Cups is the element of Water in the realm of heart, emotions, dreams, intuition and creativity. Seven is a number in the tarot of action, awareness, a creative force. This week, be aware of the temptation to be distracted by projects or ideas that seem easier, or are more seductive with short-term results. Keep yourself focused on your current creative priority that is more likely to result in better long-term rewards.
Focus, The Wheel of Fortune. This Major Arcana card shows the poor Fool getting tossed about as the Wheel takes him first up and then down. How can you keep your focus on your center and that of your work, not on trends or the seeming roller coaster ride of creativity? If you stay centered, maintain your focus, then the ride won’t throw you. And the rewards will be there.
Action, 3 of Wands. Wands is the element of Fire in the realm of Spirit, creativity, career, and work. Three is a flowering, something emerging. This week, you are called to meet a creative opportunity at least half way. Don’t wait for the idea, project, grant, whatever to come to you while you sit cozily in your work space. Get out there in some way and be prepared to welcome it, greet it.
Gift, 7 of Swords. Swords is the element of Air in the realm of mind, thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and communications. And here we have another Seven of action and awareness. Here the action looks a little shady as a burglar enters the space. In the gift position though, think about how ideas and inspiration arrive. Sometimes, a clear mind is necessary so some ideas and thoughts need to be taken away. Other times, the ideas arrive in an unexpected way from an unexpected source. Be on the look out.
