MONDAY TAROT MESSAGE FROM THE MUSE, 10/17/2022.
Theme, 10 of Cups. Cups is the element of Water in the realm of heart, emotions, dreams, intuition, and creativity. Ten is a number of completion and preparing to begin again. Just as the dog and cat have ceased to fight with each other but rather have found a shared contentment in the moment, so allow yourself this week to absorb the moment of creative fulfillment that comes with completion of a project or task. After all the hard work, the striving and struggling to create well, to finish on time and on budget, to meet deadlines, take time to rest and feel the comfort of typing “The End”, or applying the last brush stroke, or writing the last note, or whatever your last step is on your creative project.
Focus, Queen of Swords. Swords is the element of Air in the realm of mind, thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and communication. The Queen is the mistress of the element and this queen especially knows her power and her mind. How will you be this queen in the next week? Can you communicate clearly what you know and what you need in order to take time to rest and celebrate the completion of your work. In order to rest and prepare for the beginning of the next project? Do you dare ask for what you want for yourself and for the completed work?
Action, Knight of Coins. Coins is the element of Earth in the realm of home, health, and wealth, any you can touch, taste or feel. The Knight is the one who is trained and has the tools needed to serve and protect the realm. This Knight is steady in the work that they prefer to do close to home. Persistence and diligence are the watchwords for this knight. Take action on getting that completed work into the world in ways that are practical and consistent.
Gift, Hanging Man. This Major Arcana card suggests that while you pause to rest and absorb the comfort of the moment, that you receive the gift of reflection and new perspective in the process. The newly completed work gives you a new perspective on something if you are open to receiving it, even if it seems topsy turvy.
