Today’s Tarot Card for August 30th is The Magician

The Magician

This Tarot Deck: Cat People

General Meaning: Traditionally, the Magus is one who can demonstrate hands-on magic — as in healing, transformative rituals, alchemical transmutations, charging of talismans and the like. A modern Magus is any person who completes the circuit between heaven and Earth, one who seeks to bring forth the divine ‘gold’ within her or himself.

At the birth of Tarot, even a gifted healer who was not an ordained clergyman was considered to be in league with the Devil! For obvious reasons, the line between fooling the eye with sleight of hand, and charging the world with magical will was not clearly differentiated in the early Tarot cards.

Waite’s image of the Magus as the solitary ritualist communing with the spirits of the elements — with its formal arrangement of symbols and postures — is a token of the freedom we have in modern times to declare our spiritual politics without fear of reprisal. The older cards were never so explicit about what the Magus was doing. It’s best to keep your imagination open with this card. Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by evolutionary forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul.

    1. Good Afternoon Red,
      Please forgive me for taking so long to respond to your comment. I have quite a few comments that come through here a day and it is hard to get to all of them. For this I am very sorry. In regards to your question, no, unfortunately you are not missing a thing. This blog started out having all the comments in the right section. Then one day, I had comments in the comment section and also in the spam section. I just think the comment section gets overwhelmed and it can’t handle it and the comments are then throwed over to the spam section. In my approved section at the top, there is always a number there and I check those then I go to the spam section and check the comments there also. The only thing I can tell you is to do like I do, check both sections each day. There is nothing we can do about this.

      I hope this has helped you out some. Again I am sorry for taking so long to respond.
      Have a great day,
      Lady A
