WORD PROMPT

Bedrock

EXPERIENCING the Tarot EMPEROR

She strums her fingers and sends a quartet of Borealis strings out into the sky. A simple joy, but one that she happily gifts the people below. The lights serve as a reminder that there is a symphony of life around them… a bigger plan that is not always evident from every vantage point. She steps onto the landscape with all of the strength and harmonic leadership that a powerful Emperor Muse can bestow. A warm breeze warms their cheeks, and she leads them confidently and graciously… empowering each and every one of them to do their very best work. She is a guardian. A provider. A steward. And she watches the lands and the mountains with great fondness. Busily, they mill and move and dance and sing, and when she hears the earthly hum of the land below, she knows that they are happy. Her heart lights up, and the warm glow of her contented structure warms the tops of the mountains. The night sky fades to the most beautiful shades of indigo, and peace fills the valley as all are protected and fostered.


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

Notice the similarities between the Emperor’s strings of life that run through her third eye, and the ones below that are her footing on solid ground. Spend some time in quiet contemplation, and look into the mindset of an Emperor Muse, and see how the world is a reflection of the mind, the heart, and wishes worked for.


CREATIVE PROMPT

• What is the material that the Muse is using to strum her world to life? Does it have a consistency? A texture? A feeling?

• Step into the role of the Emperor and grade your own consistency and confidence as you grade yourself on a report card. What imaginary topics are you going to add to your report? And what are her remarks? Choose whatever you want to add. (Example: You get an A+ in tea pouring, because….) What are you awesome at? What needs work?

• Describe your home and your life as a wealthy Emperor Muse of the Mountain. What must haves are with you?

• What’s your texture, sweet creator? A beautiful alpine glow represents this Muse and is reflected in her shawl. What texture, pattern, image or thing would be the thing that others would say best represents you? Sketch it, cut it out, collage it or glue it. You can also replace ‘the thing’ with something that will better represent your future, if you’d like.

CREATOR MUSING

You can create anything. Are you choosing to create things that nurture yourself, and others?

WORD PROMPT

Fruit from the creatrix

EXPERIENCING the Tarot EMPRESS

Breathing life. Creating love.
Everything for the good of all creation.
Even when they can’t see the how and the why of it all.

The Cosmic Empress strolls gracefully in her garden of ideas. Golden seeds everywhere, she’s the epitome of fertility and feminine creation. Whistling the tones of symmetry and sacred geometry, she spirals her voice into beautiful new patterns and hums a new time-line into being. Seeds spark, plants begin to shoot, and from somewhere across the distance she hears the singing voices of children who are dancing their futures to life. Smiling, she pulls her hood back and showers their worlds with new energy and nurturing, motherly care. And all the Planets, worlds, lives and loves spiral out, auspiciously, from her star seed core. She creates from her most readily available resource of love, and she sends you a warm nod and a wink while reminding you that you can also access this ancient creator energy. As her children, we are made of this same fairy dust and we are shaped from the elements that originated from deep within her big-bang heart. We can use her musings to create life from deep within our bellies, or to bring our most exquisite visions into being. Her golden seeds are, after all, everywhere you look. Or wait… did you think those were lemons? ‘Hmmm,’ she muses, ‘What a wonderfully perfect day for some lemonade.


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

Go for a stroll with this Empress in her garden. Taste the tastes and smell the smells. Tell her your dreams, and when she is ready, she will share something with you from deep inside of her sunshine core.

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” – Maya Angelou


CREATIVE PROMPT

• Imagine you found the ancient cloak of the Empress, unexpectedly. Not only does it allow you to create anything you can imagine, it also nurtures sensuality, fertility and earth pleasure. What does it look like? What would you create beneath its layers? Draw it. Write about it. What is your Empress vision for the Universe? For your life?

• Spend some time ‘earthing’ (or grounding) outside. Put your bare feet on the grass and feel the earth’s healing frequencies come up through the soles of your feet. This connection to Mother Earth will bring a beautiful sense of well-being.

EXPERIENCing the Tarot MAGICIAN

Reaching up, she weaves and spins her reality into form.
Magick from the ethers. Determination in hand. All the potential of the Akashics, waiting to sprout. She has all the tools she needs. She knows that the four elements support her journey and so she steps into the strings of her magic loom. With sound wave, heart wave, and thought wave, she promises to weave a better world. A light, luminescent substance of divine gel begins to form between her hands. It always comes so quickly when her intention is to create something healing for others. Something transcending. And totally rooted in love. // Focus // Breathe in. Welcome a trance state in order to tap into the liminal spaces of creative potential. Breathe out. Focus once more. Desire. Know the end game. Breathe in. Draw down. All the energetic materia that is needed to make it real. Breathe out. Finish by giving it form. Pattern. Thought. Color. Space. And so it is.// And in her waxing and waning breath she feels her magic arrive. And in her heart she feels her desires begin to crystallize.

“Art is standing with one hand extended into the universe and one hand extended into the world, and letting ourselves be a conduit for passing energy.” – Albert Einstein


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

In meditation, join this magician in her rainbow Universe of power, and allow her to teach you the colorful craft, spell, ritual or magic that you need to learn in order to bring your dream to reality. She will choose the color that represents the chakra that needs the most work, and she will whisper her secrets of next steps and perfect magic.


CREATIVE PROMPT

Get elemental. Make a little Muse altar including something from each of the four elements. Ask each element how it can bring more magic into your life, and ask the Muse to inspire your thinking.

THE FOOL TAROT MESSAGE

KEYWORDS

beginnings, trusting the Universe, a time for optimism, not knowing what’s coming, naivety, needing to learn new skills, analysis paralysis, a leap of faith

CREATOR MUSING

Trust yourself! Don’t allow analysis paralysis or creative blocks set in because you are frozen in fear. Don’t let your over-thinking spoil your beautiful magic.

WORD PROMPT

Uncertain beauty

EXPERIENCing the Tarot FOOL

Skip, Skip, Shuffle. Skip, Skip, Shuffle.
She hums a tune she used to know. And
with bated wishes she leaps into an abyss of stars.
And possibility. 1, 2, 3… Leap.

Thoughts eager,
Heart racing
Hopes high.

A million bits of colored stardust rise up to meet her, and she greets fable, myth and opportunity as she tumbles deeper. Her reality shifts, and she sees that her future is in here, in this beautiful swirl of light and potential. ‘What are you searching for?’ asks the Muse. ‘Something brave,’ she whispers, ‘Something new.’

For the briefest of moments, she feels unprepared. Naïve. Unsure. Foolish. Is she ready for this? Can she really take this journey? Then she remembers that she believes in magic. And in hopes fulfilled. And she smiles. She leans gleefully, spinning deeper into this trust, and she begins to hum once more – a song that sounds different this time around. Grander. Epic, even. The notes vibrate the space around her, and her new path begins to unfold beneath her feet. Leaving nothing to do but begin.


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

Imagine yourself at the top of a cliff looking into the Universe abyss. What do you need to bring with you? What do you need to leave behind? Look down and imagine the shoes are you wearing for this journey. The dreams you are taking with you. What wisdom do you draw close as you slide into the pool of life below?

“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.”– Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

 


CREATIVE PROMPT

Use your non-dominant hand to try making marks on paper. Try using a new material or a unique paper. Grab some charcoal or watercolor, or anything that prompts new connections to your inner-child. Play. Try closing your eyes as you mark and doodle, and imagine the leap you need to take to get where you want to go. Keeping your eyes closed, mark out the stars or the sights that you see on the way down.

THE Priestess TAROT MESSAGE

KEYWORDS

Listening to your intuition, introspection, visions and powerful nudges from Spirit, hearing the heavens, secrets, hidden knowledge, the subconscious mind

CREATOR MUSING

Trust your instincts, and allow your projects to germinate in the sacred space of the liminal

WORD PROMPT

Sacred sheer

EXPERIENCing the Tarot High Priestess

She sits with one foot in this realm, and the other within the depths of the cosmic field of information. Hers is a throne made of ocean and sand… conductors of ancient wisdom and the divine mysteries that are passed down to those who seek their messages with an open heart. She reaches up at the moon, and holds its pulsing energy in her palms for a moment. A warm glow falls around her as she waits, listening, for the messages from Source. In strange tongues, she begins to spill messages forth from the ethereal world. She speaks divine wisdom… the secrets of the Universe, and suddenly you understand that she is reminding you that all are welcome to listen as deeply, and to tune into their own subtle energies. These messages from Spirit are gifts that she offers to all who meet her. Your third eye stirs. She asks you to take some time to listen. And she knows that your messages from beyond are with you right now, and that they will be loud. Prophetic. And show up in dreams and in your mind’s eye.


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

Go for a walk along the beach of the liminal where the High Priestess lives. Imagine what it feels like to live in this boundary of hers, between this world and the next. Spend some time in these waters and listen for your messages. They will arrive to be downloaded and translated. Keep notes of what you see.


CREATIVE PROMPT

• Collage your third eye to life. Find a magazine or some photos to cut up and make a collage of many eyes. What do you see in the depths of these windows, when you remove the faces that accompany them? What do they whisper to your soul?

• If you want to connect with your psychic or intuitive mind, try water scrying. Simply look into a dark bowl of water (with candle or moonlight is best!) and see what shapes you notice. What could the shapes represent? And how could they connect to your question? (Be creative here!) Make ripples and seek metaphor. The intuitive mind will need your creative translation. It’s okay to feel like you’re ‘making it up’ when you start. Trust your gut.
