I have a huge collection of nail polish, all sorts of colours, in glitters, metallics and satins. And though I don’t always wear it, when I do, I typically choose my colours based on the Tarot.
For instance, I might pick a sky blue to attract the energy of the High Priestess, or scarlet for the Emperor. If I want to feel sword-like, I’ll choose a metallic silver, or a rich green for grounded pentacle power.
Sometimes I let the deck choose, asking ‘what energy could I use today?’ Then I find a colour in the card that’s in my collection (and works with my outfit) and paint it on.
It’s fun, like my fingers and toes become little magic wands. Or at the very least, reminders of the energy I’m trying to manifest.
As you can imagine then, it was a delight to come across this video from a lady who calls herself Singed Momma.
She’s a make-up artist who took inspiration from the Osho Zen Tarot for her Face of the Day eye design.
She used the greens and yellows from the Courage card as her guide, and the results are fabulous. Check it out.
Money is probably hard to come by, while time is even more precious. Wherever you look, though, it seems like someone else is asking for more. The tendency here is to gather yourself and your resources and go off alone to think.
Go ahead and do that if you’d like, but try not to get yourself too closed off. You probably have more than you think you do. Maybe even enough to share.
If you’re being asked to spend on something that will help establish an even firmer foundation than you presently have, give it some serious thought. It might be more than you had anticipated, but the pay offs are probably well worth it.
Extravagant or foolish spending is not recommended, but remember the old adage – it takes money to make money. If you don’t put it out there, be it actual money, your physical effort or something else you consider really important, nothing’s coming back.
This is true about your emotions as well, don’t hold them too close to the chest. Be generous with your heart. Remember, you get what you give.
