Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Tarot Card of the Week: March 16-22, 2009

The Magician
What really interests me is whether God
had any choice in the creation of the world.

— Albert Einstein

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.

    Today was a magical day for me on my Artist Way path! I have two successes to share. I received a letter from a former co-worker who read my newspaper article (my first published writing!) and sent me a really supportive note about my work. That felt good and I realized that he has probably been one of my adult-self “champions” for as long as I have know him.
    I also had the opportunity to be a singer today! One of my 5 imaginary lives… A group of local country music singers/musicians got together to jam and we each sang our favorite songs with the help of each other as our backup band and harmony singers! We had a lot of fun and even sounded real good on some of the songs. We all hope to get together again soon and do it again! Maybe the magic of the Magician will manifest something lasting and empowering from this gathering today, like resource rich music gigs or something…..
    I’m not sure how I will top this for an artist date this week. This may have been it, even though it included other people.

    Yay! This is just terrific, Starflower. Congratulations on your article and discovering another champion (hidden in plain sight!).

    And it sounds like your singing group was a ton of fun!

    Folks – I have had the honor to jam and sing with Ms. Star*, and what a delight! She is so generous with her huge talent, has a wide, deep repertoire, and is absolutely inspiring!

    Waving the Magician’s magic Wand to ensure that magical music continues to flow in beautiful, powerful ways for you! Presto, shazam!

    Wow! I think I have discovered another of my ‘champion’…you! Thanks for the encouragement and the invocation. Today was one of those one step forward, two steps back days. Spring is coming…..Friday!
