THE 7 OF VOICES TAROT MESSAGE

KEYWORDS

deception, taking only what you need, being honest and aligned, carefully tuning in to see what’s really going on in a situation, seeing past illusion and deceit, con-artists and copycats

CREATOR MUSING

While the path from deception into clarity can be one filled with disappointment, it can also be dripping with opportunities to create a better, more honest and aligned bridge. When you create from YOUR voice… your inner-musings, and when you walk your bridge of truth… what do you express? Make the idea, and the path yours.

WORD PROMPT

• Lying in the aftermath of illusion
• Stealing voices
• The colour of my true bridge

EXPERIENCING the Tarot 7 OF VOICES

Oh, how lovely it all looks! How serene the path. Everything in perfect order. Oh, how lovely it all looks! How serene the bridge, with everything in perfect order. It leads to perfectly shiny things, so she stays focused on the green meadows that lie ahead. They promised her perfection, you see. She looks up, suddenly noticing the Muse looming ahead, with her intense gaze . . . peaceful yet insistent. And something feels off. A gut instinct. Something that she can’t quite put her finger on . . . something made of shadows, happening in the reflections. Her inner senses are tingling with the most distant of alarm bells, and she knows she must trust her instincts on this one. As you cross your own bridge of illusion, this Muse warns you to be on the lookout for deceit, theft, or the misalignment of values. Take only what you need, trusting your own integrity to guide you. The security of your moral compass will grant you passage, because only in truth can this doorway of sunshine be crossed into.

“Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.” – Pablo Picasso


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

Walk this bridge towards the Muse. She will help you to share truth that lies behind the masks. Walk towards her, stopping once in a while to peer into the waters, where the reflections will help you to glean fragments of honesty, Walk towards her, with hope and love… to the freedom and light that pour from her meadows of integrity, honesty and truth.


CREATIVE PROMPT

Make a mask out of energy. Or paper. Or clay. What part of your world is still holding fragments of illusion, and hiding behind the smiles of other feelings? Create your mask of illusion so that you can see it. And so that you can, literally, remove it.

• The missing transitions

EXPERIENCING the Tarot 6 OF VOICES

The 6 of Voices is a Muse of difficult transitions, and she lends a helping hand to those who seek solace and passage to new states of being, living and loving. Sometimes, the way across the river is unclear and muddy. In these times, the Muse asks us to be open to receiving help from wonderfully unexpected places. She is everywhere. And her forms are often the most unlikely and unexpected. Trust serendipity. Look for small miracles. And keep seeking the bright waters of tomorrow’s horizon. These things will help you cross, and the profound shifting that occurs as a result of this transit is already beginning to root and stir inside your soul. You are already on your way.

Muse Tarot Meanings 5 of Voices

5 OF VOICES

— feelings of defeat —

FIVE OF VOICES (SWORDS) TAROT CARD MEANING

POETRY AUDIO

MEDITATION AUDIO


THE 5 OF VOICES TAROT MESSAGE

KEYWORDS

fighting, winning at all costs, a time to extend an olive branch, seeing what’s really important, failure, loss, being hurt, bullying

CREATOR MUSING

Sometimes when we lose, we win. And sometimes when we win, we lose. Define what winning means to you… not just the end goal but also define how you will feel, and how others around you feel. And make some boundaries around what you will do (or not do) in order to get there.

EXPERIENCING the Tarot 5 OF VOICES

The 5 of Voices hears loveless winning sounding through the air:
1) I, alone, am going to win
2) I am the only one who really deserves this
3) It doesn’t matter who gets in my way
4) Nothing – and no one – will stop me. Get out of my way
5) I don’t care what it takes. All I see is the prize
The Muse of the 5 of Voices looks down, reflecting back how often we forget to think about the things that are the most important to us when we strive to win. Sometimes, we forget about how we should act, and we forgo our better interests – our integrity, our balance, our light – in order to come out on top. The Muse watches those who do things that they aren’t proud of, choosing tiny victories over their own evolution. She knows that it can feel as if our reason for existing is to climb a ladder that goes… now wait… where does it really go? With laser precision, she illuminates the solitude, frustration, anger or sadness that can keep us in the state of needing to win and needing to be right. She illuminates any ‘not enoughness’ that fuels our desire to feel successful, beautiful, accepted… and at the top of our game. She reveals the scarcity that keeps us wanting to be ‘better than’ – and she offers a chance to step off the hamster wheel and to look at your surroundings in a new light. ‘What costs are you paying to win? And what fallout is associated with those costs?’ And for those who have lost, or who have felt any injustice, shame or inadequacy around an unrequited desire to triumph, she asks you to remember that everything you can glean from your loss will set you up for better opportunities in the future. We succeed when we decide we can improve, and she asks you to remain mindful of the things that really matter: connection, trust, truth, honesty, integrity… being able to forgive and being compassionate… helping those who are part of your team and always striving to be the very best version of yourself. This is how we win… at life.


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

Imagine yourself meditating in front of the 5 of Voices. When do you lose by winning? And when do you win by losing? She will open her eyes and reveal her stories to you.


CREATIVE PROMPT

Write a list to celebrate your wins. And another list to celebrate your losses… where do they connect? In those moments of connection, the keys to improvement and understanding live hiding in plain sight.

CREATOR MUSING

How are you replacing your energy, so that you can keep creating your path of starlight?

WORD PROMPTS

• Starlight massage
• Petals that sleep

EXPERIENCING the Tarot 4 OF VOICES

The Muse of deep rest and healing –The 4 of Voices – welcomes you to her starlight nebula of rebirth and renewal, and she offers you a time away so that you can escape the wheel of chaos and busy-ness that so quickly becomes the pattern. She shifts the mix of stars and rose petals, and spins you the sweetest of waters. She brews an elixir made for your wounds, both energetic and physical… and emotional and spiritual. She invites you to walk slowly across the bridge, and to fall into the deepest of rests with her. Sleep, sweet creator love. You must rest for your health. Sleep, for this is where all the energy to create your path will be found. And without this rest, you will miss a key resource that you need to complete your mission.


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

Imagine walking out on the ledge of this nebula bath. What restorative energy does it promise? Does the Muse have any restorative ideas for you? Dive into her healing waters and listen for her wisdom to flow.


CREATIVE PROMPT

A pretty bath. Some petals. Some pretty soaps. Yummy oils. Maybe a nice fluffy towel. Take a moment to not only draw yourself a beautiful bath, but also record the way it looks. A photo. A sketch. A memory to retain the healing. Then join your resting Spirit in the warm bubbling waters of this Muse of regeneration. { And YES. This is going to take some time and a few hours away from it all. And YES. Double yes. This is really needed, sweet busy little bee. The harder it is to imagine, the more you need this pause. }

THE 3 OF VOICES TAROT MESSAGE

KEYWORDS

heartbreak, sorrow, loss, unexpected let-downs, losing confidence, hurtful words, pain and wounding

CREATOR MUSING

Inside of our deepest trauma and sadness lie the longest trajectories of light

WORD PROMPTS 

• Slices of sadness
• When the wind howls
• The taste of a broken voice

EXPERIENCING the Tarot 3 OF VOICES

The storm clouds brew on the horizon, just out of reach for their cleansing waters to wash over her lands. She sits, feeling splintered, and holding onto the last shard of light she has. She tries to breathe her heart together, with wishes and trinkets of comfort.
Yet they feel empty.
Waning. Inconsistent. The words were harder to hear than she thought they’d be.

And the Muse watches over her, feeling every tear… every sob… every note sang in despair. She sees the painful separation and distance between what she wanted and what she is experiencing… the painful breaking free of a path that was not really her true path, at all. And she watches the small creature fold into the ground, releasing the hurt that she is holding in her chest. Then, when the connection is strong, she whispers small comforts to her… starting with the mind, “Sweet one, hold on to those tiny fragments as they will weave their way together. Sit tight, as your beautiful heart will heal. Your healing is imminent, and you will find the sweetest of joy once more.”


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

Allow the 3 of Voices to shine down and illuminate the places where you need some mending.


CREATIVE PROMPT

Find a photo that represents your situation and grab some scissors, a paper and some glue. Cut it open in a few paces and glue it back… with spaces like the woman in the card. In the space that remains, write a few words that come to mind.

“Love always brings difficulties, that is true, but the good side of it is that it gives energy.” – Vincent Van Gogh

TWO OF VOICES (SWORDS) TAROT CARD MEANING

POETRY AUDIO

MEDITATION AUDIO


THE 2 OF VOICES TAROT MESSAGE

KEYWORDS

choices, indecision, feeling like you are between a rock and hard place, not knowing what to do, a stalemate, silent intuition

CREATOR MUSING

This is the moment that makes life exciting. Even though you don’t know it now, these moments of ‘which way’ mark beautiful beginnings of paths chosen.

WORD PROMPT

The many faces of the wind

EXPERIENCING the Tarot 2 OF VOICES

Two paths. Two options. One is real and one is not. One leads to a future, and one will fade away as potential without form. The 2 of Voices sits at the doorway, gently urging the traveller forth, regardless of the duality is being experienced. The Muse spins options for her, offering paths that lead in different directions so that she remembers that she has free will. She weaves realities that allow travellers to take control and deem themselves fully responsible for their circumstances, for their successes and their joys. She whispers, “Even rocks and hard places are energy that can be moved, and sometimes they must be walked through. When choices appear equally as sweet (or equally as sticky) appreciate the slightest of nudges on the strings, and trust that even without predictability or foresight, the right path – the one you take – will lead to your future. As a token of love, I promise that both paths have ups and downs, and that you must lean into your beautiful voice to hear the directions.” The traveller takes a step forward, realizing that sometimes the destination is not as important as the steps taken, and that progress made with love while listening to the whispers of your soul will always lead to the transformative powers of the right choice.

“Do not fear mistakes – there are none.” – Miles Davis


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

Imagine yourself at a crossroads and you have two paths ahead of you. One leads to choice A and the other to choice B. Sit in quiet contemplation at the start of your journey. See which path offers the most beauty. The most foliage. Perhaps ask the sand and the clouds to stir in one direction and to show you the way. If you want, ask the Muse (who looks out over the door of the future) for guidance.


CREATIVE PROMPT

Mirrors. Paths that are the same but slightly different. Mirrored faces, places, times. Create something that has mirrored and repeating elements on both sides.

CREATOR MUSING

When a-has come barreling down from source, it’s time to listen, capture and scribe.

WORD PROMPT

Flashlight of truth

EXPERIENCING the Tarot ACE OF VOICES

‘‘The girl with the rainbow hair,’ she smiles, opening up your way of thinking and perceiving. She knows you will see rainbow realities around her, all of the time. Sometimes it’s in her eyes. Sometimes it’s her hair. ‘We are all light’ she says, and her lips glimmer with the changing hues of transcendence. ‘And yet,’ she winks, ‘When we see the truth, sometimes we see it in Technicolor. And then, we can give that truth the shape of sound through clear communication.’ Her brilliant energy pulses, and as she speaks geometric forms begin to appear in the space around her with every new word, tone and sound. ‘Clarity in thought and seeing,’ she begins, ‘results in the most unusual patterns for building a life.’ Another shape swirls up into the wind, ‘because clear thinking means seeing the world outside of you for what it truly is. And to do that, you will need to use the energy of what’s outside, instead of relying solely on what you think is outside. And that is something of a marvel, because you will constantly re-invent your understanding of what is real.’ She leaves most witnesses perplexed, until they have a cracking-open-wide a-ha. ‘It’s like giving yourself new eyes from which to see the world,’ she smiles, “and seeing clearly for the very first time.” She promises that new inspired understandings will flow down to you shortly, and that they will be bolstered by not only logic and reason, but also heavily dripped in the divine. They will be wrapped in inspiration and they will help you see the path ahead of you with the most beautiful of lenses: The truth.


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

Imagine yourself on the wings of the wind, going to meet the Ace of Voices. Her rainbow truth will show up when you find her. See what information she has for you.


CREATIVE PROMPT

Split the light and find the truth! While you can use this prompt however you’d like, a prism or a crystal are lovely tools for this work. Holding your light-splitter up to your eye in a darkened room, peek through it to see what little shapes the light rays share with you. What do they almost look like? What do they remind you of? Notice them. Jot them down. When you are finished, meditate on what meaning those shapes may have for you.

“In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell

• Rinsing the shadow

CREATIVE PROMPT

Add water. And love. And stir. Use more water than you think you should in a painting or drawing, or poem. More salt. More tears of joy. Add drips and drops. And all the feels. And then paddle right out to the waterfall.

WORD PROMPT

Tentacles of experience

EXPERIENCING the Tarot QUEEN OF EMOTIONS

Rising up from deep within the seeds of the ocean, this Queen is connected to all that flows. She is the unconscious bridge between the caverns of the heart and the world that flourishes around it. Her watery nature offers you the chance to flow into her portals of self-discovery, and to move mountains of emotions from within… by simply shifting the direction of your own tides. She is connected to the seas, the waters, the nourishment of life… the moon and the ethers… and she is always welcoming you to cleanse your joy in her healing streams. From deep within her beating essence she sends love harmonics into the waters of the world. She works with her waves to grow compassion, and passion, and to connect us back to our Source of truest emotions. All of them. She seeks this alignment so that actions, words, thoughts and breath all beat in the rhythm of true feelings, as feelings and desires are a barometer that can be used as an intuitive map of reality. She asks that you see yourself as you truly are – and to feel your essence as you truly feel. This nurturing, caring energy is one that washes away unhealthy attachments and bubbles down through the earth to create foundations of sacred space in relationships. It allows strong empathy without the energetic baggage of taking on other people’s stuff, and it breeds intuitive creativity and small pockets of devotional joy. Fall into this flowing compassion.


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

• Imagine yourself a molecule in the healing waters of the ocean. Drifting. Swaying. Healing. You reach the surface and you break off… as oxygen, and you float up in the air, eventually arriving at your current location. Float into your own lungs and nest, bringing healing energy with you.

• Enter the heart cavern below, and swim around to find clues of hidden emotions. Seek notes in bottles, messages from the fish, or small clues. Dig them out from beneath the sea floor, and allow them to rise the surface.


CREATIVE PROMPT

Find a bottle. A paper. A pen. And write a letter to your mind… from your heart. What does your heart want your mind to notice? What should you pay more attention to? What does your mind stop you from feeling?

WORD PROMPT

The honesty of puddles

EXPERIENCING the Tarot KNIGHT OF EMOTIONS

He stomps and jumps and plays in the water of his heart. So joyous he is… with this fresh new connection. The idea of this pairing brings his energy levels up so high that there is nothing to do but just joyously romp in the fresh rain water. Sometimes you will find him kicking like this in the heat of passion or when he is overtaken by a jealous streak, but today this Knight of Emotions is full of unbridled joy. The spinning nautilus shell rises in the sky, lighting the afternoon with the gentle nudge of all things growing and shifting as creation wills it. It reminds everyone beneath its bright love that nature’s only option is to grow or to decay, and by choosing to grow… by choosing to put energy into his partnerships and into his passions, he consciously expands energy… both his, and theirs. By consciously dipping fearlessly and honestly into the growth that love offers, without the worries, the rules or the head-games… he forms the connections he most desires to experience. He is.. who he is… and he loves.

“Colour is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.” – Claude Monet


PATHWORKING VISUALIZATION

Imagine romping with the Knight of Emotions in his puddle of pure passion. Jump in with both feet and look at the colours and the images reflecting back at you from its mirrored surface. What messages does it ripple? What heart-based messages does the water contain for you today?


CREATIVE PROMPT

Heart on your sleeve. Make a sleeve or a tattoo for the day. What does it say about your life at the moment? Doodle it and wear it bravely.
