It’s time to retire that bitch! The Queen of Swords, who has been so much a part of my persona, needs to be retired. She will always be a part of who I was and who I am but I’d like to give another side a chance for expression and exploration. The Queen of Swords has served me well and if I ever return to the business world I’m sure we will work together again but for now I need to find a different mode of expression.
The 3 of Pentacles reserved suggests that I need to unleash some of that creative, artistic energy I possess. It’s not important that whatever I create be of professional caliber or even be really good. What matters is that I allow myself to play; to simply enjoy the smell of the crayons and the blend of colors. If I don’t want to draw I can always write something. If I don’t try I’ll never know if I can do it. The 3 of Pentacles reminds me I don’t need to be a journeyman at this. Being a beginner or apprentice is just fine as long as I stay with it. Once again the message is that the journey is more important than the destination.
So the answer to my question is that the way to better express my creative side is simply to do it. I don’t need to second-guess myself or be hypercritical. I can simply enjoy the process of drawing and coloring or writing. In can put on music and dance and sing to my heart’s content. No one is watching and if they are so what?
