Dedication to craft.
“Do what you love and you’ll never work another day in your life” –
I’m glad to have drawn this card today (spirit says high five) because I’d wished I’d given a little more love to the ‘workaholic’ yesterday of the 10 of Wands (that was yesterday, I’m assuming).
I shall dedicate this card to yesterday’s card.
This industrious, dedicated, nuts and bolts card – salt of the Earth: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn -is given some serious weight under this Taurus Sun and Virgo moon – the Devil is in the details, and Virgo is the ultimate détailler*. Our human is at their workbench or computer knocking out whatever it is they knock out for a living, but they don’t ‘knock it out’, not at all. Every piece is examined, examined again. Smooth this edge, stand back, look at it again, is it exactly the same as the others? Let’s look at it one more time.
Any master of any craft (I’m a Flamenco student/performer for 20 + years. Those Spanish teachers are tough, to say the least. Seriously. ) has spent hours and years and days and hours and measure ‘success’ not on money or fame but in the hours invested in a day, in a life, on their craft. The thing is once they’d discovered that’s what they were born to do, they never even cared to do anything else. Why would they?
The 8 is a very powerful number and of course the sign for ‘Eternity’ when turned on its side.
Chilling out behind your work. Enjoying your process.
“I can do this forever.”
*détailler : what can I say. Virgo Sun AND Virgo moon. I wanted to say ‘detailer’ but wasn’t sure if that was a word so had to check in the middle of typing the sentence and it isn’t really in English but it is in French so that’s what I shall use. That’s what I mean.
