The Magician card is all about bringing your talents to the table and putting them to good use.
Perhaps you have been looking for a job or thinking of changing your occupation. If so it would be wise for you to sit down and assess exactly what it is you can bring to the table of any new employer or occupation you are chasing down.
This doesn’t need to be about you finding a job: it could be that you’re thinking about expanding your knowledge which makes you a little more employable and more valuable in the job market.
You may really be wishing to change jobs but are a little hesitant as you don’t think you have all that a new employer is looking for.
If this is the case think again because the card of the Magician is a strong indicator of a new job, change in careers and if you are happy in your current job it may be that you are about to be given more duties to perform.
Focus on the hands in this card you will see that one is pointed to the earth whilst the other is pointed to the heavens suggesting that you are aspiring to something great yet also grounded enough to see that you cannot just take a big jump and land in that greatness without a bit of preparation.

Ace of Wands
As Saturn has now left Scorpio and entered Sagittarius there is a definite difference to the energy around.
It is as if you have been released from the constrictions of the past few years and there is a brighter future coming your way. Sagittarius always has a way of making everything seem brighter and more positive and this is right in line with the energy of the Ace of Wands.
Any new project you are thinking of starting now would be a great time to begin.
The image on this Ace of Wands suggests there is a correlation between what you are thinking of doing on a higher level and bringing it into your life. If this is the case it will not be difficult.
Things will fall into place for you almost seamlessly as your thoughts and actions correlate to what is around you and help comes from unexpected sources.
There is an abundance of energy for you whether this be physical or mental and with this energy plus more importantly you are able to channel this energy into whatever you are doing. This is a good day to plough through your workload.
If you have been falling behind with your work this is the day to get on top of that. If you look at the image there is a sense of “as above, so below” as the energy is interconnecting between the Wand.
This also gives a sense of balance to your life today as you are blessed with a sense of rightness in what you are planning to do.
Great ideas start with a small spark and I suggest you follow your heart with any small spark that comes your way today… you never know where it will lead you.
It is no coincidence that we also see Mars trine the node today giving a sense of fate to the energy you are experiencing.

Ace of Wands
The world is your oyster today with a grand trine of planets in fire signs. As the Ace of Wands is the beginning of the fire sign energy in the tarot pack what better card to focus on for today.
It stands for energy, new projects, launching yourself in a different way — whether this be outwards in something you do differently in your life or inwards in something you start believing about yourself, which will propel you forward toward accomplishing your goals.
Mars, Jupiter and Uranus are in a grand trine today which gives you the extra energy (in abundance) to plow through anything you need to do.
This is also a great combination of planets as it generally heralds a time where you can work in a complementary way with what you have around you.
Mars gives you energy, Jupiter gives you luck and expansion of ideas whilst Uranus is the wild child and can turn your luck in any given direction.
Keep this in mind with what you plan to do today as you may find that circumstances change for you and you are sent in a totally different direction to that which you first started.
The Ace of Wands shows the dragon curled around the Ace of Wands with the gems in alignment with the heart area.

Ace of Bows
As Mars moves into Sagittarius today, you want to be thinking about your dreams, desires and intentions; as well as the actions you can take to turn them into a powerful reality.
The Ace of Bows (Wands in most decks) speaks of directing your energy toward your goals with purpose and intent: much the same way you’d take aim with an arrow and launch it at a distant target.
If you’ve ever done any archery, you know that you don’t just pick up an arrow and fling it haphazardly into the air. You have to pull back, focus on your objective and become one with the bow before you even shoot. Once you let go of the arrow, you’re committed to the outcome so you have to put everything you have into hitting your target.
This is the energy you want to keep in mind as you work on manifesting your goals. This card — called the “Spark of Life” here — refers to that raw, pure, unharnessed energy that is the Ace of Wands as it changes energetically from spark (idea) to flame (intention) to contact (manifestation).
The symbol for Sagittarius is the “archer” which is perfect for this card. And Mars is all about drive, initiative, energy and action: also perfect. Put them together and you have all the tools that are necessary to manifest your reality, via the Ace of Bows.

ARIES: The Sun
This month should see you feeling a sense of satisfaction and contentment over recent accomplishments.
The Sun card is traditionally associated with vitality, warmth and a sense of feeling particularly “alive.” But in this version the focus is just as much on taking care of yourself and manifesting that vitality through soaking in the Sun’s rays and recharging your batteries.
The Sun, Mercury and Venus all move through your 6th house this month — the area associated with work and with self-improvement, which includes your physical and mental well-being. Rest and relaxation is just as essential to that process as are work and productivity.
The “Sun” in this card appears to be setting. It casts its rays onto the ocean in the background, shining across the surface like molten gold.
The image of the woman sleeping comfortably without a worry in the world perfectly captures the essence of the Sun. There’s a sense of effortlessness that’s associated with this card, even as the world keeps on turning around you.
Your ruler (Mars) moves into Sag this month (on the 13th) and into your 9th house — the area associated with personal growth and expansion. After that point there will be plenty of time to spread your wings and fly.

Ace of Wands
Be ready today for a powerful breakthrough. The Ace of Wands — like all Aces — refers to raw unformed energy and potential that can light a fire under you and ignite a new passion.
It’s a card of confidence, inspiration and promise than can awaken you to a whole new set of ideals.
tn this version of the card, the “Wand” is formed in the shape of a caduceus with the orb of the Sun emitting a shimmering white light down from the heavens. Twin serpents wind their way up the center in perfect symmetry. A pair of angel wings at the top spread out across the sky.
The caduceus symbol is traditionally linked with commerce, negotiations, eloquence and travel — due to its association with Hermes, the messenger of the gods. It’s also tied to alchemy and modern-day medicine and healing.
With respect to this Ace of Wands, the caduceus is representative of the Kundalini spiritual life force. Notice the glowing streams of energy that spiral upward along the column of light.

Ace of Wands
Today — as Jupiter moves into Leo — for the first time in over 12 years — you want to be thinking about what you want to accomplish during this next chapter in your life.
The Ace of Wands is card of passion and raw unformed energy. It’s the spark of an idea that can be harnessed and then channeled into something tangible and real.
This version of the card pairs the William Blake painting “Ancient of Days,” which portrays God as an architect creating the world, with a quote often attributed to Goethe: “Whatever you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
The Ace of Wands is a card of inspiration: it’s that fire that burns inside of each of us that even when it flickers or goes dim, it never completely dies out. It’s the spark of imagination, self-expression and passion that permits us to allow our “wildest dreams” to manifest — even if only in our dreams.
You can work with this energy yourself — depending on where this transit falls in your own natal chart. If you don’t know and would like to find out, feel free to post your birth date (as well as time if known and place of birth) in the comments section below, and we’ll be happy to tell you.
