Today’s Tarot is the Magician or the Magus of Power, associated with Mercury. As one of the Tarot ones, he’s a singular force, representing the very essence of the power he calls upon from each of the elements. As one of the Major Arcana, his ability to wield that power for transform is remarkable.
The Magician is initiate, spiritual student, and as such, an effective conduit of energy. (I’ll also bet he practices psychic self defense!) The infinity symbol in the traditional RWS version emphasizes the lack of limitation. His white garment signals purity of intent, whereas the red cloak suggests action and real-world effectiveness.
When you see the magician, know that you are not helpless or at mercy of outside forces. YOU already have the power within you to direct your experience. The trick is always in how you direct that energy. You have the tools already! Start by imagining good outcomes, really feeling and conjuring up internally the emotions you’d like to create, and direct thoughts in accordance.
I’m not going to go all “The Secret” on you and say all that’s needed is thinking happy thoughts. But the Law of Attraction is effective. You just have work with the energy you attract. Once you set your will firmly , once you create the feelings and momentum toward positive outcomes, the actions required to bring them into being becomes accessible. You can act on what you believe as possible. Synchronicities fire up and you begin to materialize those possibilities.
You can’t use the Magician’s energy to control others. But you can use his energy to manage your OWN experience in situations involving others, which is far more useful without the Karmic implications of making someone else’s choices. Even difficult situations can give us valuable gifts, if we opt to extract lessons and insight consistent with our higher goals. Use that power you’ve got.
Are you feeling a sense of your own power?
