The most supportive Muse, the Gathering Muse likes to keep things pleasant and orderly. At her core, she’s like the goddess Hegemone, who makes flowers bloom as they’re supposed to.
With more intense Masculine than the Tending Muse, the Gathering Muse is a little more assertive.
Her natural strength is making things nice.
She’s kind and gentle, and keeps households, offices, and partnerships running smoothly. She often engages in charitable work. Her house or apartment is a cozy haven for friends and family.
Because she upholds standards to support the order she holds dear, some may find her exacting. But that’s what allows her to bring consistency and calm to her world.
What matters most to her is peace and plenty.
Her place will contain nice things, and quite a few of them—she’s a gatherer, after all. There may be art on the wall, antlers, china in cabinets, things that reflect the character of her and her family.
When she’s out of the house, she likes to be in parks, museums, libraries, small shops, and other such places. There the pace is slow, the atmosphere is quiet, and beautiful things are in evidence.
She looks soft and sweet.
The Gathering Muse’s eyes will convey a warm glow. Her style will be classic, and she’ll favor floral motifs.
She most likes to be at home. Women of her type often do charitable work, such as helping at the hospital, or being a docent in a museum. Queen Elizabeth II of England, the patron of many charities, is a good example of the Gathering Muse.
