Synonyms of "Muse" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre Muse e Ponder ?
A: ponder = is to wonder, to think of deeply

muse = to think about something, and to get lost in your thoughts/imagination thinking about it.

Usually 'ponder' is used when an idea is being seriously considered.

'To muse' indicates a more hypothetical situation, one in which you're not thinking deeply about a real outcome but rather imagining various outcomes, thoughts, and situations that something could lead to.

She pondered possible career paths. (She's thinking somewhat deeply of what career she should have.)

She mused on possible career paths. (She's thinking of more imaginative, hypothetical, broader situations rather than seriously considering certain jobs.)

The verb 'To muse' comes from the muses of ancient mythology, who were often in control of arts and creativity. So in a sense 'ponder' and 'muse' are the same, but 'to muse' is just a little bit more light, creative, less intense... Usually used when people are imagining multiple outcomes and ideas and not necessarily wanting any outcome for their thoughts, like the woman musing on career paths in the example.
