Only once before in my Card of the Week has the Magician come calling, and now, what impeccable timing he has! For this week, with the Vernal Equinox, the new astrological year begins. In the Northern Hemisphere, out of the death and silence of Winter, rebirth comes. Now Springtime officially erupts around us.
The Magician is the initiator of consciousness and awareness. He is the true beginning of the Major Arcana sequence, the Royal Road of the soul’s journey. He has turned the nebulous, unformed potential of the Fool into directed intention and action. He transforms the Fool’s staff to a Wand of power. Raising it above his head, he channels spirit energy from heaven to earth, making manifest his desire.
Upon his table lie all the tools of the Minor Arcana, which are the symbols of the elements and the tools of Magick: the Sword of Air, the Wand of Fire, the Cup of the Waters, and the Pentacle that is Earth. He stands, like a lightning rod, open to the holy flash of Spirit. He runs the energy of the Divine into the manifesting Earth – As above, so below.
The Magician is a receptor and channel of power, a shaman who understands exactly how to receive the raw power of the Universe, and direct it to make, create, change, and shape the “real” world.
His is the power to tap into the Source of creation, and use it for his creative purposes. Such power is unstoppable, as long as he is willing to take action and the consequences, putting himself completely on the line.
This confidence can only come from his knowing who he is and the nature of his desire. He knows exactly what he intends to do, and why. Because he is crystal clear about his powers, his willingness, and his connection to the Divine, he acts without hesitation or doubt. In this way, he is able to achieve miracles.
This week, know that the power of the Multiverse is in your hands. Your life is a magical act of creation. You have the skill and the power to shape-shift your reality into whatever your deepest desire may be.
First, know thyself, and so doing, claim your power, focus yourself, and take action. Act now. Do not hold back. The Spring’s life force is shining with the miracle of rebirth, ready to burst forth from within you. Reveal your truth and make it happen. You have the tools. You know how.
And as you so will it, so it must be.
