:pentacle_tarot: Crea-tarot-ivity : A Motivational Card Spell

Merry meet!

After learning about the Festival of the Muses and researching each of the Nine Muses for this week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge - Your Magickal Muse, I felt a creative spark to work with Creative Magick itself! :magic_wand:

So for all creative souls- be you artists, performers, writers, chefs, etc or simply crafty in your Craft- this motivational spell that draws on the complex symbolism and emotions of tarot/oracle cards is for you! :handshake:

Card Spell for Creative Success

Crea tarot ivity Spell

Begone mind block and mental exhaustion!

The tarot is a magickal tool, divination device and beautiful expression of symbolism. Use your tarot deck (or oracle cards) in a new way with this card spell for inspiration!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

You will need:

:flower_playing_cards:A deck of tarot or oracle cards*
:salt: Small bowl of salt
:open_book:Your Book of Mirrors or other Journal

*Note: If you don’t have tarot cards, you can print this deck for free!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

  1. Begin by shuffling your tarot or oracle deck. When you feel ready, select one card- but keep it hidden, do not turn it over yet .

  2. Place both your hands on the back of the card and say:

This is the card I need to see
What is revealed is what I shall be.
Colors and shapes, symbols and art-
My new path is about to start!

  1. Flip over the card and observe. While you may consider traditional card meanings, pay closer attention to both the visuals and your own emotions- how does this card make you feel ? How does this card relate to you ?

Note: Please do not fret if you get a traditionally negative card like The Tower or the Ten of Swords- observe your card for what it is. Your creative energy may need a direction that you did not open yourself to before.

  1. When you feel that you have digested the meaning of the card, take your bowl of salt. While still looking at your card, dip three fingers into your purifying bowl of salt :salt: :bowl_with_spoon:

  2. Bring your salt-cleansed fingers to your forehead. Gently brush your three fingers from your hairline, down your forehead, to rest on your Third Eye Chakra (a power point in between your eyes). Be careful not to get any lingering salt in your eyes.

  3. With your fingers resting on this pressure point, take nine deep breaths :wind_face:

  4. Then, with your mind cleansed and message of the card held firmly in your heart, reach for your Book of Mirrors or other journal :open_book:

  5. Write about the card you drew, the process of the refreshing salt ritual, and any ideas that came to your mind while working the spell. Allow yourself to think freely and openly! :sunrise:

I used three ounces of salt and went counter clockwise *3 banishing the bane the 3times clock wise allowing a protective shield around me🔰
Then I blessed my base my heart and :crown: :princess: crown
I pulled the crystal oracle and got the carnelian crystal which to my support for today to be creative! Orange :tangerine: is a brilliant in color :art: it reminds me of the sun :high_brightness:
“I am bright and creative and unique”
“ I am radiant like the sun :sunny:
Then I see I have been picking up all the pieces to a puzzle in which know I can draw on carnelian when I need to be creative!
Healing is happening and calmness and grounding and stability! I am protected by carnelian it dissolves any of my anxieties and grief and shame! I just found a lion statue and I wanna fix it cause I think I can make it new again! I could draw upon Carnelian to help me integrate my wabi sabi buy turning something that is broken into a masterpiece!
