For today I've drawn The Magician from the Tarot of the Sidhe. This is a card that I rarely draw, so I will pay particular attention to its appearance today. I like this depiction very much. This Magician is situated in a landscape where all the elements are present: sun, sea, sky and land. He himself is composed of different elemental aspects: fishtail, a tree, fire in his hands and wings. He says: “I am the Mouthpiece of the elements.
At first I thought he was a bit scary but now I appreciate his diversity. I especially like the blue throat chakra (Sidhe Glyph) to emphasize the power of the spoken word. When you speak your mind, you can manifest your thoughts into being. That is magic and that’s why it is so important to think before we speak. How many words we have wasted on quarrels and gossip, on whining and complaining.
The Magician teaches us we can channel our inner power into the world and choose where we want to focus it on. We can draw from the elements which are all around us and inside us
Sometimes it scares me to see this card. It is like The Magician is expecting more from me than I am able to give. “Go for it! Do the best you can”, he seems to say to me. Usually This feeling has a tendency to extinguish my creative fires. Then I am more inclined to dig my heels in than to manifest anything.
But today I finished my painting of the Divine Feminine. I knew exactly when it was finished and I was so happy with the result, I think I am going to buy a frame for it and put it up in the living room. J (I’ll post about it tomorrow)
So today the Magician was all about self confidence and creativity for me.
