The most caring Muse, the Tending Muse loves to tend to “her people.” At her core, she’s like Hestia, the goddess of home and hearth.
With less intense Masculine than the Gathering Muse, the Tending Muse is a little gentler.
Her natural strength is caring for others.
The themes of her life are nurturing, healing, and caring for others. She probably works as a nurse, or homemaker, or in another “caring” profession or capacity.
Friends and family are her world. Because she’s domestically inclined, she may seem uninteresting to some people. But her gentle energy gives her the ability to restore others, body and spirit.
What matters most to her is a healthy “family.”
She may mention that she loves holidays, because that’s when the whole family gathers at her house. It’s at her house where they gather, because that’s where everyone feels most comfortable.
She likes caring for children, and prefers to do that in her own house and yard. She provides them with a calm, supportive environment where they feel safe and taken care of.
She looks kind and gentle.
The Tending Muse has kind eyes, and is probably petite. Her speech and movements are quiet and measured.
She may like to tend a backyard garden with ornamental plans like flowers in it. When she cooks, it’s usually family recipes. Lady Bird Johnson, a president’s wife who loved flowers, is a good example of the Tending Muse.
