EXPERIENCING the Tarot 9 OF INSPIRATION
She stands gracefully, ready, for this last stand. After all the work, the training, the timing, and all the delights along the way, there is one final push to make it happen.
Some have given up.
Others have fallen away.
But she knows that this final stand is what will make it all worth it. She knows, in her heart, that if she gives up now that she is giving up on all of the energy that she has already put into this thing. She knows that if she gives up now, none of it will have been worth it.
Begin your meditation at the top of a dune, noticing the rough environment around you. Look closer and notice the plants and their beauty. How do these cacti survive such harsh conditions? Maybe there is medicine to be found within a conversation with a plant, or with the setting sun. Ask for guidance on that which keeps your defenses up, and which ones you can lower in love.
The 9 of Inspiration offers a peek into what no longer needs defending, and what remains because of the defensive energy you hold on to. Let go of something you have been defending for too long – a way of being, a worry, an excuse. Use it to create something else. Transmute it. Or etch its name into a candle, and light your candle of defense and love. Allow the candle to work its magic and let the energy leave your heart.
