Seven of Cups - How Can I Connect With My Sacred Path?

I took a suggestion from Bridget at Biddy Tarot that I ask the Tarot  "How can I connect with my sacred path?" Now that's a good question! My sacred path is a creative one as an artist who makes art.

 Not sure why I was looking for some profound answer in an eye popping card, but I got my answer in the Seven of Cups. Upon first glance it wasn't what I was looking for, no magic sliver bullet in this card, however it was a message I needed to receive.

Through time, careful choice, and a commitment to hard work, the possibilities can be actualized, balanced with an acceptance of the limitations of reality, and not to build castles in the air, or being distracted by flights of fancy.

This is an accurate description for my present situation, and how I need to seriously approach my sacred path and apply myself to the work at hand. 

It might not have initially been the card I had hoped for, but it is exactly the card I needed, and to keep at the forefront of my mind.

I am not surprised I drew the Seven of Cups, and I am reminded we don't always get what we want, but what we get what we need.

Talent without discipline is a wasted gift. We have to practice and keep our both feet on the ground. We have to be honest but also gentle with ourselves. Sometimes an artist is his own worst critic so one or two cups in the air isn't that bad

That's for sure Ellen. Yes artists can be their own worst critic. I have learned to me less so. I think you have a have at lest one or two cups in the air to keep the old imagination going!

Choose then DO. I like to stay in my head - analyzing, studying, comparing. But until I have a daily practice, until I begin to use the tools of my path, I won't be making any progress.

Oh for sure, Bev, I used to be so obsessed with analyzing with my childhood friend then we'd analyze our analysis and then wonder what the hell was wrong with us doing all this analyzing!
Now that's crazy making!
