MONDAY TAROT MESSAGE FROM THE MUSE, 9/9/2019
Theme, 4 of Coins. Coins is the element of Earth in the realm of home, health, wealth, anything you can touch, taste or feel. Four is a number of stability and security that can easily turn into stagnation. This week, instead of holding on so tightly to your resources, like money, think about investing those resources in your work and in yourself as the creator of that work. If you don’t open your hands and let go a little, there’s no room for more to come to you. It’s time to invest in yourself and your creative work.
Focus, The Chariot. This Major Arcana card stresses the importance of focusing on your direction and goals for your work and your career. If you don’t know where you want to go, the horses will pull you here and there. If you want success, if you want success with speed, then ask yourself this week, “Where do I want to take my creative work and my career? What are my current goals for my creative work?”
Action, 3 of Wands. Wands is the element of Fire, in the realm of spirit, creativity, career and work. Three is a dynamic number. Instead of the immovability of the four, the three is movement and creativity. If you want opportunities for your work, then you have to meet those opportunities halfway. Don’t wait for them to knock at your door. Get out there. Take action to engage, enter contests, apply for grants, talk to gallery or bookstore owners, etc. That’s one way to invest in yourself.
Gift, 9 of Wands. Wands again, only this time, the nine which, as you can see, is about coming to the end of the line…with a current project. To be ready for new opportunities, the gift is a finishing up of a current project. Bring it to completion so that you can prepare for the next one. You’ve worked long and hard, time to give it a rest. Finishing, not perfection, is the goal.
