Hi, All! I hope you all are well. The Queen of Wands shows is a master at harvesting energy, as the Wands represent fire, passion, and energy. So, this may be a good day to channel any energy you have into creative projects.
What exactly is creativity? My definition of creativity is to turn whatever you do into an expression of how you feel.
How can you express yourself today? If it’s writing or drawing, that’s great. But it could also be dancing. Just turn on some music and move: You don’t have to be a ballet dancer. Simply express how you feel with your body.
Sing along with music that mirrors how you feel today. Or, gather up different flowers and make your own flower arrangement.
You don’t have to limit yourself to expressing only happy emotions. If you need to let out some anger or sadness, find creative ways (that don’t hurt you or others) to express those emotions.
There are as many ways to express yourself as there are people in the world. Find the way that uniquely expresses you.
Take it easy and enjoy some down time today. That is what today’s card is suggesting.
This Nine of Diamonds card is from the Illuminated Tarot deck. It corresponds to the Hermit card and Nine of Pentacles in the traditional Tarot. Think about how you can willingly sacrifice the busy work you would normally do and practice self care instead.
Self care varies from person to person. For some, it’s sitting down with a good book, taking a long hot bath, going for a walk, or taking a nap. If you can, carve out time for yourself, even if it’s only a few minutes to an hour. You work hard and you deserve to do what your want to do once in a while.
This reminds me of the song Put Your Records On by Corinne Bailey Rae.
When the Five of Coins appears, it can show that you feel unsupported by the people around you or simply that you feel insecure in some way. This could be in relation to your finances, but it also could be in any area of your life dealing with practical matters.
However, the lesson of this card is that perhaps you are overlooking something in your life that may be able to help you. Perhaps you need to redo your budget in order to see your way through your problems. It could be that you have people around you can ask for help, advice, or simply an ear to listen to. Perhaps you need professional help from a doctor, financial institution, or social service. The person on the card is ignoring the shelter he can get from the church next to him. Maybe you need to pray, meditate or consult with your spiritual guides.
Bottom line, when we feel off-kilter and alone, we can be proactive and do things for ourselves to get us in touch with the people and resources we need.
