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.”

ARIES: Justice

This month you may find it necessary to make decisions that are fair and just — without regard your personal leanings. The Justice card refers to a conscious awareness of cause and effect, action and consequence, right and wrong.

It may be a situation that you’re personally involved in, such as a relationship that tugs at your heartstrings but is not in alignment with your principles. Or you may be asked to mediate a disagreement among friends. It’s not about choosing sides. It’s about being able to tap into the “truth” objectively and impartially.

In this version of the card — from the Sun & Moon Tarot — a butterfly girl hovers in the sky behind a scale. She strives to maintain her balance using the blade of her giant sword. A flaming heart is weighed against a single white feather in the scales.

A yin / yang symbol is at the top of the scales and the Hebrew letter “tet” is at the base. Among other things, the tet  symbol refers to wisdom and truth.

The Justice card speaks of balancing head against heart and desire against logic. While we all strive to keep these areas in sync, it’s a constant and precarious battle.

Sometimes the heart rules and sometimes it’s the head. But if you rise above the situation (like the girl in the card) you’ll be better equipped to achieve perspective. Sometimes we have to get some altitude in order to see things from outside of our earthly attachments.

The Justice card encourages you to seek the answers to your most pressing concerns through objectivity and conscious awareness. If you rely too much on head, heart will suffers and vice versa. But if you can find a way to balance the two, the truth will reveal itself in the end.

Today’s Sun / Uranus conjunction should see you tapping into your own mental resources as a means of unleashing your personal power — your own genius, brilliance and ingenuity.

The Magician card  refers to the divine spark that is within all of us, and encourages us to use it to accomplish our goals.

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 in this deck is in the midst of creating a divine spark of his own. He’s conjured up a glowing energetic spiral: manipulating the air around him to create magic out of nothingness.

He stands before a table with a wand, pentacle, sword and goblet carefully arranged on top. These correlate archetypally to the four elements (fire/wands, earth/pentacles, air/swords and water/cups respectively).

This is a common theme among the different versions: having all of the necessary resources within reach.

Fire = action, initiative and drive. Water = emotions, feelings and intuition. Air = intellect, ideas and decisions. Earth = Structure, boundaries and material concerns. Together these assets make for some powerful “magic” that you can tap into and harness at will.

Ask yourself: “What is it I need to learn today?” or “What is it I have to teach?” The Magician encourages you to tap into your highest personal reservoirs and to access skills you may not even realize you have. Whether you are the teacher today or the student, tap into that Sun / Uranus energy as well: it may just be the spark that’s needed to get you moving in the right direction.

Strength

ARIES: Strength

You may be called upon this month to reach into your inner reserves of strength and overcome your deepest fears. The Strength card is all about mind over matter and gaining control over the things in your life that are at risk for spiraling out of control.

It could be as simple as a pattern of second guessing yourself or talking yourself out of doing what you know is best for you. And it can be as complicated as upholding your part of a bargain you’ve made with yourself: quitting smoking for example. Dieting. Sticking to an exercise regimen. Holding your ground against temptations to “give in” when you know that doing so is not going to be in your best interests.

The woman in this card — from the Aya Takano Tarot— has managed to tame the beast through kindness and generosity. But she’s not exactly lying down and exposing her underbelly. Her demeanor is both soothing and reverent as she places the wreath of flowers over the lion’s mane. I love the “power” tattoo on her forearm.

Think about how far you’ve come in taming your own inner beasts. If you’re tempted to throw in the towel, remember that doing so will only cause you to lose momentum.

The Strength card encourages you to not only meet your fears head on, but to transform them by neutralizing the power they hold over you. Once you do that you’ll find that they weren’t so frightening after all.

Magician

ARIES: Magician

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.

The Magician speaks of bringing your talents to the table and putting them to good use. What better card to describe today’s Uranus / Mercury conjunction than one that symbolizes the artful use of one’s own genius?

Perhaps you have been looking for a job or thinking of changing your occupation and 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 up.

This doesn’t need to be about you finding a job either it could be that you are thinking to expand your knowledge which gives you more employability when it comes to 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 rests slightly above the tools laid out on the Magician’s table whilst the other is pointed to the heavens.

This suggests that you are aspiring to something great yet are also grounded enough to see that you cannot just take a big jump and land in that greatness without a bit of preparation.

The four suits of the minor arcana are laid out on the table before you: a Cup for emotions, a Sword for your thoughts processes, a Wand for action and a pentacle for money. If you can align your emotions, thoughts, actions into how you wish to make your money there is not a lot you cannot accomplish. All you need is a good plan.

Today you’ll be honing your skills and talents to perfection, so that they can be put to practical use.

And not just any skills at that because Mars moves into Aquarius today the skills you may be calling on could be a bit out of the ordinary for you but you will be hit with the thought to use them just the same. If you try doing so you may learn more than you imagined.

Although the Magician is full of lofty ideas and goals, they don’t amount to much if they can’t be brought down to earth and made manifest. This is your goal today: to take all you think and know and make it accessible to others in a useful way.

In this deck, Hermes — patron god of travelers, thieves, messengers and magicians — is depicted as the Magician, pointing upwards toward the heavens and downwards toward the earth.

The four elements (fire, earth, air and water) are at his feet, symbolizing the four suits of the tarot. It’s clear that he has all he needs right there at his disposal, if only he puts them to use.

You’ll want to set about accomplishing something tangible. Know that all of your resources are right there at your fingertips, and will only need to be accessed in order to create something “magic.”

Mars moving into Aquarius today gives you a spark for the creative where ideas may just come to you at the drop of a hat. Perhaps carrying a small notebook around would be a good idea so you can write them down.
