This morning I closed my eyes, shuffled the Faeries Oracle deck, and withdrew Luathas the Wild.
“Luathas the Wild is filled with fire, and fire is associated with the creative life force. This faery fires us up, gets us going, recharges our batteries and creative energies. He likes to be around when things are exciting, when there is life force blazing high and he can jump in and encourage it to burn even higher. Creation and passion are his bailiwick.”- from Brian Froud’s, The Faeries’ Oracle.
It is difficult to think of a more fitting card at this moment. As I wait to hear back on my requests for Portraits of the Living: A Ghost Tale, my passion is soaring as I research for my next novel which takes place in the late 19th century. During the last week, I have passionately (or obsessively- like any true Rising Scorpio) been studying up on issues which will be dealt with: murder and how crime was investigated back then, 19th century asylums, the daily house life and fashions of the 1890s…
As I take notes, the creative side of my mind is twirling with ideas.
It is indeed a fun, wild time when it comes to my writing.
What is in the cards for you and your writing?
