Tarot Card of the Week: July 4-10, 2011 – The Magician

What really interests me is whether God had any choice in the creation of the world.
~  Albert Einstein

We have a rare and auspicious visitor this week, as The Magician comes calling for the first time in over two years.

The Magician is the initiator of consciousness, awareness, and action.  He is the realization of “I am,” and is the true beginning of the Major Arcana sequence — the Royal Road of the soul’s journey.

He turns 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 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 accept 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 infinite power of the Multiverse is in your hands. Your life is a magical act of creation. How will you wield such power?

You have the skill and the power to shape-shift your reality into whatever your deepest desire may be. What will you create?

First know thyself, and so doing, claim your power. How will you focus and take action?

Whatever it may be, act now. Do not hold back. Reveal your truth and make it happen. You have the tools. You know how.

And as you so will it, so it must be.

    It does go with Hermetic principle : Everything starts within
    “First know thyself, and so doing, claim your power.”

    Woohoo! This card showed up in a personal reading about 2 years ago. I focused and my life changed. I’m at a similar point, so this is a perfect reminder to focus my intent and actions. Thanks, Beth!
