The Magician ~ Cultivating Beginner's Mind
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is The Magician, representing: Beginnings, focus, learning and intentions. The Magician is the first card of the deck, and represents new beginnings. Ruled by Mercury--in Greek mythology, the winged Messenger of the Gods--the Magician connects us with our innate “god” power: the ability manifest our ideas and inspirations into reality. Powerful stuff.
The key to the Magician’s power lies in the ability to focus and quiet his mind. To be fully present to each moment. Much as the Buddhist Masters speak of “Zen”—a state of consciousness where one becomes aware of the infinite possibilities of the Universe—the Magician is learning to master this state.
If the Magician has appeared you, it is a time to embrace “Beginner’s Mind”. To become a willing student, open to new ways of doing things. The Magician indicates that you have all the tools you need to manifest a new reality, but you must develop and learn how to them. Your intentions are extremely powerful now. Set them with care, and let them be your focus, without distraction.
The Magician also represents communication. He is a reminder that your words, just like your thoughts, have great power. Use them carefully. In the highest sense, the Magician is a conduit to manifesting your greatest potential. His motto is: As above so below.
This week embrace your creative magic and become the architect of your life.
