I love how each week there seems to be a theme. This week, Creativity in all forms is the message!
This is such a soothing and inspiring meditation.
The cards today speak to writers everywhere.
The Eight of Pentacles represents a master craftsman honing his skills. When this card appears in a Tarot reading, you are working hard to improve your skills and become a master at what you do. You are diligent and hard-working and you are applying yourself fully to whatever is at the center of your attention. As you do the same task over and over, you work your way towards mastery of your craft, and through your perseverance and unwavering attention, you create success. (Sounds a lot like writing, doesn’t it?) The Eight of Pentacles is encouragement to keep doing what you are doing as it will eventually lead to success. Yes, it requires a lot of dedication, focus and patience but as each day passes and as you stay true to your values and beliefs, you get a little closer to your goal. It may not be as apparent as you may like but events are unfolding that will lead you to the right path. Continue working on yourself, too, and making ongoing improvements and adjustments to ensure that you are the best person you can be.
The Two of Wands is all about contemplation and planning for the future. It’s not necessarily a card of action, but of thought. You are exploring your options and carefully plotting out the path ahead, accounting for all possibilities and potential challenges. You are open to growth and exploring new territories, so long as you maintain a level of certainty that your efforts will work out in the end. The Two of Wands is also about discovery, particularly as you step outside your comfort zone and explore new worlds and experiences. It may take courage to set out, but this card gives you the confidence of self-knowledge. You know what your goal is and are sure of its eventual fulfilment. Let your intuition and passion guide you as you confirm your next steps.
The Ace of Cups represents love, new relationships, passion and creativity. Now is the perfect time for you to open your heart and experience the rich flow of emotion available to you. You are more receptive to creative opportunities, loving connections, and deep compassion for other living beings. As with all Aces in the Tarot, this card comes as an invitation. Will you take it? Will you say “Yes!” to Divine love and compassion, and will you run with it? The Ace of Cups carries the potential for spiritual and emotional fulfilment – but only if you embrace it with an open heart. This card often appears in Tarot readings when you are open to creative expression, especially when you can allow your emotions to shine through your endeavors. You may be inspired to start a new project, take an art class or even engage in interpretative dance. At this point in your life, you are comfortable with who you are and happily express this part of yourself to others. You see fresh potential in allowing your creative juices to flow. Let your imagination and talent unfurl to new possibilities.
To get better at anything we do, we must continue to practice, to learn and hone our skills. Then, we can begin to look ahead at new projects, taking the time to contemplate and plan. Following that, In the flow of passion and creativity, we can embrace new endeavors, particularly ones that involve relationships.
I know I say this every time, but the little Dragon is absolutely beautiful. Look how he’s on the bridge, bridging the gap. 🙂
