The Gingerbread Man: Cooking Up Creativity Spread
|The Animal Tarot (available HERE)|
Card 1: Where does my inspiration come from? 9 of Fire
I specifically used this deck because I used elemental suits and was hoping a minor arcana card would show up here to represent what element produces my inspiration. I'm inspired by Fire which to me relates to quick, frenetic energy that needs an outlet. I also think of the 9 of Fire as the worst-case scenario card. It's about waiting for the shoe to fall or preparing for the worst (but expecting the best!). This is actually the source of my inspiration for a lot of things. I like to be prepared for everything so I'm constantly learning.
Card 2: What can I do to remain open to the creative ideas that come to me? 3 of Air
Stay hungry. Notice the open mouths of the baby birds waiting to be fed. To remain open to the creative ideas that come to me, I need to keep desiring them. They are like food or sustenance to me.
Card 3: What is my most treasured creation? Knight of Water
I'm interpreting this as emotional depth. I usually see this card as diving deep into the emotional depths. My most treasured creation is my emotions and deep sensitivity.
Card 4: How can I share this gift with the world? 5 of Air
Haphazardly?! The 5 of Air shows birds flying out of formation. They may even have gotten into a bit of a squabble about their direction. Air suggests communication, speech, and discussions. So perhaps this means I can share my gift with the world through talking or communicating in some way.
Card 5: What do I need to let go of to allow my ideas to grow and evolve? The World
Hmmm. I often think of pride when I see the peacock so that's something to let go of. But The World also suggests maybe I'm thinking too big or too broad. I don't need to get my message out to everyone. Just the few who really want and need it.
