Free Daily Tarotscope — Aug 8, 2014 — The Magician

Magician

The Magician 

Today as the Sun and Mercury come together and both of them trine Pluto, you may be tapping into your own creative energy and harnessing “powers” that you didn’t even know you had. The Magician card refers to making something happen through your own skill, cunning and initiative.

In this version of the card we meet Prince Hussein, the eldest son of the Sultan of the Indies, who’s traveled to far-off lands in search of a rare gift to save a dying Princess. He returns with the most exotic and implausible gift of all, a shimmering, luminous magical carpet.

Not only is the carpet itself “magic” but it’s taken skill and discernment to secure and guide it. All of the necessary resources — all the confidence, aptitude, daring and resourcefulness — were right there at Hussein’s fingertips all along, although he may not have known it until push came to shove.

Look at all the flaming torches that are lighting the night sky. The Magician card promises a different sort of illumination; that which allows you access to the skills that are necessary for you to accomplish your goals.

The Sun and Mercury trine Pluto aspect is all about accessing your own inner resources — confidence (the Sun), ingenuity (Mercury) and power (Pluto) — to master your own destiny. This is no time to rely on auto-pilot. Like the Magician in this card, you may need to “rise above” your situation to view if from a different perspective. 

Think about areas in your own life where you’ve felt you didn’t have what it takes to accomplish your goals. It could be a career move or a relationship decision or even a personal change such as dieting, quitting smoking, tackling self-defeating thought processes, etc. The Magician cards tells you that you not only do have the powers to make these things happen, but that you’ve had them all along.

 

 

1001-nights

The card used for today’s tarotscope — The Magician — is from the beautiful Tarot of the Thousand and One Nights, by Léon Carré, a Lo Scarabeo deck published by Llewellyn.

The Tarot of the Thousand and One Nights is inspired by the Arabian folktales reputed to be the work of Scheherazade.

Léon Carré was a French Orientalist painter born in the 19th century who was noted for his stunning murals, illustrated books and paintings.
