The Magician

Hope everyone is having a great summer!  I was on vacation in Europe over the summer and wasn’t able to blog consistently.  I will be blogging every two weeks about a Tarot card.  I am still doing the summer special until September.  Please contact me for more information.  Many Blessings!

The Magician

Upright: Power, skill, concentration, action, resourcefulness

Reversed: Manipulation, poor planning, latent talents

The Magician works on channeling energy from The Source into manifestation on the earthly plane. This can be done through meditation and quieting the mind in order to listen to inner guidance. It is having the divine and creative spark begin to ignite within us and then having the faith to manifest it. The Magician taps into the abundance from higher realms and uses the energy to create abundance on earth. He uses a cup for the water element, wand for fire, sword for air, and pentacle for earth. By tapping into these elements we can manifest our goals to create emotional stability, focus of mind, creativity and inspiration, and material wealth and abundance. The Magician opens us up to our unlimited potential and helps remember the magic that we can create in our lives.

The Magician is associated with the planet, Mercury and carries with it skill, logic, and intellect. The Magician is numbered one, the number of new beginnings. The Magician is the bridge between the world of the spirit and the world of humanity. His right hand holds a staff raised toward the sky and his left hand points to the earth. He takes the power of the Universe and channels it through his own body and directs it to the physical plane. There are two symbols of eternity displayed in this card. The first is the figure eight above his head and the second is the snake biting its tail.

The Magician card appears in a reading at a time in your life when you have the creative power to create a new life cycle for yourself. You have the ability to take the power of the Universe and manifest your dreams!. The Magician card suggests that a situation has been or will be presented to you that will allow the manifestation of your desires. Those desires may be spiritual (fire), physical (earth), emotional (water), or mental (air), and are each aligned with the four elements of the Tarot. With the Magician card, you are inspired to apply skill and initiative to accomplish all your goals.

The Magician is also a card of intent and focus on a specific task or activity. You need to be focused on a single goal or purpose to channel all of your energy, tools and resources towards this one goal. Commitment to the task is essential and you will need to eliminate any distractions that will take your focus away from what you want to achieve.
