She spins her roses with the skill of a master weaver, stringing together their beauty and her craftsmanship in a tale of success and satisfaction. Finding zen in work, and taking pride in a craft is the life and breath of this Muse. She helps seekers to stay the course, to pay attention to the details as they persist and persevere so that they can build the skills they need. Your body of experience will be necessary to create and to live the life of your dreams. Your consistency and your patience matter. Your efforts, and your hard work matter. Every time you seek to improve your creation, it matters. Continue to build and expand. This Muse can get so caught up in her spinning roses that she can forget to remind you to take a break, so take time to smell the flowers sweet spinner, and be sure you don’t get so lost in the petals that you miss the other things you love about life.
