Big Magic ~ 12 Inspiring Quotes for Creatives

Elizabeth Gilbert is utterly honest, open, blunt and inspiring in her latest book, Big Magic. Here are some of my favorite quotes:

“Just because creativity is mystical doesn’t mean it shouldn’t also be demystified—especially if it means liberating artists from the confines of their own grandiosity, panic and ego.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“You must keep calling out in the dark woods for your own big magic.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“We must risk delight. We must have the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world.” ~ Jack Gilbert

“Do whatever brings you to life, then. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“It’s a simple and generous rule of life that whatever you practice, you will improve at.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“Creativity is sacred, and it is not sacred. What we make matters enormously, and it doesn’t matter at all. We toil alone, and we are accompanied by spirits. We are terrified, and we are brave. Art is a crushing chore and a wonderful privilege. Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us. Make space for all these paradoxes to be equally true inside your soul, and I promise—you can make anything.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“You are already creatively legitimate by nature of your mere existence here among us.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“We are all just beginners here, and we shall all die beginners.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“I have a right to collaborate with creativity, because I myself am a product and a consequence of creation.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“I am a child of God, just like anyone else. I am a constituent of the universe. I have invisible spirit benefactors who believe in me and who labor alongside me.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

This is the last full Moon of the year. It’s at 3 degrees of Cancer.

Cancer is about our sense of belonging, family, home, our comfort zone and security. It accentuates preserving our family ties. Cancer is ruled by the Moon which represents our emotional attachments, our ability to be receptive and sensitive. It is important to be aware of our deepest needs at this time.

Full Moon is when the moon is opposite the sun , in this case Cancer and Capricorn . These two signs represent the primal archetype of father (Capricorn) and mother (Cancer). Capricorn represents our public life, our profession and cancer represents our personal life, family and home, emotional needs. Are these two areas in harmony in our life or are they at cross purposes?
