We meet the next phase of the fool’s journey, The Magician. The fool was blind with only his animal sense of meanings to be found somewhere somehow, now it is time to meet himself and become aware of his true self potential.
I look at this card often as being a young age in our life’s journey, because after the stage of the fool when we are born, we meet this stage next. It is when we start to develop ourselves with our own personal thoughts and learn responsibility from our actions and thoughts.As we get older we mold and shape our unique thoughts and personalities that will lead to things we will experience in our lives.
#1= ourselves, it just makes sense that this card is all about learning yourself and discovering everything that make’s you, you.
This card has many layers of course just as we do, I see many things come out of this card not only in readings but in everyday life, because it is also about learning. We are constantly growing and learning new things and the magician offers that meaning often.Whether we are thinking about going back to school or even just learning a new skill this card will present itself.The magician stands for our capabilities and true potential even if we may not know what we want to do at the time as far as career and which path to take. It is a sure sign we have everything within us to make changes happen for the magician has all the tools needed to make anything happen.
I don’t usually add my personal experiences to these Tarot card posts, but I have to say that I literally just went to add media to add another picture of the magician and this card was on there! The crazy thing is I literally just adopted a cat that looks exactly like this one:) and I got goose bumps and the chills and an overwhelming feeling (good) in my gut. Which brings me to my next point about this card. It is all about manifestations and bringing what we truly need as well as desire into our lives.
If you look at this picture, the kitty cat has a wand that symbolizes the magic we all carry within us to make our deepest desires happen. This cat also has wings 🙂 which represents our ability to use thought to cut through the illusions that block us from seeing the truth and setting us free to create our physical life. If you look closely you will see a dream catcher hanging in the background, this is actually acting as a filter, to filter all the things we no longer need in ourselves and our lives, the things we have outgrown, even our dreams and desires that change over the years. The books and the globe represent what we do manage to manifest in the physical and in a tangible way. It is our jobs, our homes, our cars, the people we attract and the very life we lead. It is our thoughts that set us free after all. This card really is an excellent sign you are doing exactly what your supposed to be doing, even if you have doubts or second thoughts about where you are in life. It is a symbol that you are exactly where you need to be and things will soon surface and you will feel like a magician of your own life! Because we are our own creators in many ways, we really do shape and mold the world around us. All you have to do is look around you and look to your past to see patterns of how things came to be. It really is true that “life is a journey to yourself”-Ronni
Remember we are only at the beginning of our learning process, This is only the next cycle of our journey, it is the first #1. This card reminds us of our purpose, even if it is one we let go of. It tells us to keep going through, both good or bad. We have the power.”Answers are within, always have been”-Ronni
