The Magician –Get your hands dirty

Raven's Prophecy Tarot The Magician Maggie Stiefvater blog logger
Today’s card is the Magician from the Ravens Prophecy Tarot.  Personally, for me, this is often a challenging card because it signifies the necessity to get off my bump and do something.  These days we are all about intention and manifesting: Large amounts of books are filled with how to manifest a perfect happy abundant life including our soul mate and a few but very intimate and caring friends. I wonder why all of us haven’t yet manifested this kind of life already. I think because the real magic isn’t in the spells, the words, or the intention but more so in the work afterwards. I mean if I had done a spell this morning for a clean house it might have raised my energy and motivation to clean but I still had to pick up the vacuum cleaner afterwards and do the work myself.

So are we ready to come into action, to leave our comfort zone and to shake up our not so perfect but rather safe little lives? Are we willing to takes the risks which are involved? We know who and where we are right now.  Is our need to change bigger than our fear of change? All these questions made me wish I had pulled another card. Monday morning isn’t the best Magician day for me, although I wish I had a magic wand to do my household chores today…

  1. I too believe in the power of positive thinking, but as you said, it won't amount to much without the action behind it!

    1. For me positive thinking comes just before the spark that gets us moving: it's our ignition key so to speak :)

  2. Very insightful. I like the question why don't all of us have every heart's desire if manifesting was easy. As you said you can raise your energy, but still you have to do the 'work'

    1. When will we get it that life isn't easy?

  4. Oh yes, magic as a way to build the energy to actually get on with stuff. And yet, that is often no mean feat. I have a client who just can't get up the energy to do anything, and that is something many people experience to a greater or lesser extent. Of course, you still need to get up the energy to do the spell, but because it's playful and fun, it's often an easier first step :D

    1. I think when you lack the energy do a spell properly and just go through the motions it won't have any effect at all. Perhaps then it is better to start praying for energy first :)
