MONDAY TAROT MESSAGE FROM THE MUSE, 7/22/2019
Theme, Temperance. This Major Arcana card with the elevated, winged woman and her hands full of fire and water, advises creatives to keep a balance between emotion and will in the creative work. Creativity is not all about your feelings, but it’s also not all about the momentary passion or the will you bring to it, either. This week, your creativity needs you to keep your balance for the the story, the painting, the composition to reach completion.Your work needs both, sometimes one more than the other, but not to the point of emotional exhaustion or burnout. Both together create the steam that propels you and your work forward.
Focus, Queen of Wands. Wands is the element of Fire in the realm of spirit, creativity, career and work, the will. The Queen is mistress of her element. This week, ask yourself, how do I need to express my creative passions? How do I need to set boundaries in order to do that? How am I fierce for my work?
Action, Page of Swords. Swords is the element of Air in the realm of mind, thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and communication. The Page is the messenger, youthful and full of hope. This week, communicate fiercely about your creative work in two ways (the two swords/daggers on the pillow). Blog, post, email, speak, teach. Find effective for you ways to communicate about your work.
Gift, Knight of Wands. Back in Wands in the realm of spirit, creativity, career and work. The Knight in tarot is the champion, the one with the training and resources to serve and protect the realm. When you keep the balance between emotion and will this week, when you actively communicate in two ways about your work, a champion appears to promote and share your magic with excitement.
