With Mars and Uranus sextiling today in Gemini and Aries, you may feel like you can accomplish anything! This aspect is innovative and dynamic;it brings together the two planets best suited for creating “magic” in the signs best known for energy, action and initiative.
The Magician in this card — from Vanessa Decort’s gorgeous Sun and Moon Tarot — is seen delineating an astrology chart in heavens. An Ouroboros (world snake, known for devouring its own tail and swallowing itself, only to be born again and again) is placed around the chart wheel’s circumference.
In the center of the wheel are the Magician’s tools — a wand, cup, sword and pentacle. Esoteric symbols (yin-yang, a lemniscate, eye or horus and horse-head talisman) are also seen inside the wheel.
The Magician stands on a beach with waves lapping at the shoreline. Stars twinkle in the night sky while a fire blazes to his left and a monkey gazes out from a pile of rocks on his right.
But the figure in this deck is not your typical Magician. He marches to the beat of his own drum, which is so fitting for the Mars / Uranus sextile. The Monkey in the foreground is also fitting as monkeys are known to be clever and playful creatures who embody the spirit of the Magi.
Take some time to today to think about what makes you unique and what skills you and you alone possess. Every one of us has something that we’re so passionate about — and properly channeled, this can become your calling.
It’s all about making the best and most powerful use of that thing that makes you YOU. Like the Magician in this card, you’ll want to remember that all of your resources are right there at your disposal, and will only need to be accessed in order for you to create something “magic.”
