Weekly Tarot Card – The Magician

A magician typically pulls a rabbit out of a hat or makes the pretty lady disappear from the box after exclaiming a few choice syllables and waving a red handkerchief. Everyone oohs and ahhs because these creations appear out of the air…and it’s called magic.

This Magician of the Tarot is enlightened. He uses the elements of the earth, appearing here in the symbols of the Tarot, cup as water, pentacle as earth, sword as air and wand as fire, in order to manifest into physical reality the divine directives sent to him from heaven. His resources are within reach…laid out before him on his designer’s table. He is the human connector of the divine on earth and his form of magic is pure as the white of his tunic and vital as the red of his robe.

The Magician appears this week as Mercury goes direct and we leave the retrograde cycle. We press forward with new insights and revitalized energy, knowing that we have the resources at our fingertips to materialize our dreams onto this earthly realm. Let us align our purpose with the divinity within to create for the benefit of all.

Weekly Tarot Card – The Chariot

A warrior stands in his chariot. His suit of armor has crescent moons and astrological symbols, his helmet is adorned with a star and victory wreath. The canopy of his chariot displays stars embroidered in the midnight blue of the heavens.

This charioteer is forward-moving with so much willpower he does not need reins to guide the black and white sphinxes into action.

When your will is aligned to your soul purpose and duality is integrated into your consciousness you can move mountains. In this period when Mercury is in Retrograde and it seems that things are moving backwards try to connect to your inner guidance for strength and purpose. You’ve got the power! Use it well.

Weekly Tarot Card – The Hanged Man Reversed

In its upright position, this card shows a man hanging upside down from a tree. Interesting to note the card is called “The Hanged Man” not “The Hanging Man” which seems to imply that he has completed “dying” to his old self and hangs in the interim waiting for the reveal of a new body. The message is surrender to the now and look at things from a different angle, sacrifice old beliefs in order to gain new insights.

In this week’s pull the card appears in its reversed position, meaning the man is hanging no more. He is ready to step back into the world with new understandings and a different bearing. The halo around his head illumines his path forward into a new day.

It’s time to return from your period of retreat. Use the information gained from the different perspective and value what your surrender and sacrifice has taught you. Bring these qualities into the world to contribute to the benefit of all.

Weekly Tarot Card – The Moon

The Moon

The Moon Card is all about the reveal. It is nighttime and the full moon is reflected in the light of the sun which sheds it’s rays on the wildlife below. A dog and wolf bark at the moon. A crayfish emerges from the waters.

What is to be revealed? Our civil and wild natures as seen in the dog and wolf respectively seek recognition and understanding. It’s as if they are barking, “See me, hear me, feel me” to the golden silvery light above. The crayfish whose thick shell serves as protection from the elements decides to leave its watery home to walk the perilous path on land. It takes courage to face the unknown but the time is right.

Are we to follow suit and face our fears and illusions? Do we have the courage to look into our shadow self, our defenses, whatever is hidden deep within our subconscious. Let what needs to be revealed rise to the surface. Pay attention to dreams and the keys they hold, the messages from our meditations. Seek integration of light and dark as the moon and sun is reflected in our true nature.
