Tarot Cards - 1 - The Magician ✨

MAJOR ACANA

1 – THE magician

UPRIGHT

The Magician is all about new beginnings – he connects the spiritual and material world and reminds us of our unlimited potential, The Magician advises us that whatever we can imagine, we can create! 🙌🏻

This is a card of higher power – and The Magician urges us to use our power without hesitation.

You are not only physically ready, but you are emotionally ready too. You have everything you need right now to manifest your desires; so, move forward with plans and ideas in the knowledge that you can achieve your goals. 💫

When you see The Magician in a reading he’s there to remind you that you are a powerful, creative – and now is the time to commit yourself fully to the task at hand. You are ready! 🔮

IN REVERSE

In contrast, The Magician in reverse may signify that you don’t yet have the necessary skills or vision to bring your plan to fruition – so it’s time to regroup and ensure that you have a clear vision of what you want, and have educated yourself in the steps you need to take to achieve it. 🖤

Casting a Magick Circle 🖤

A magick circle is an energetic field that you surround yourself with before your magickal workings begin. Some people also like to cast a magick circle before meditating. ✨

The circle provides protection since you cast it with the intent of positive energies only being allowed to enter. This means that when you open yourself up to energies, you are protected from negative ones. Not only this, but it contains and amplifies your own personal energies making your magick more powerful; the circle is almost like a cauldron for brewing up powerful energies!

 There are many ways to cast a circle – and this is just one that we’d like to share with you:

 1. Decide on a place to practise your magick where you won’t be disturbed.

 2. Imagine where your circle will be and place something that represents each of the elements Earth/North, Air/East, Fire/South, Water/West at the appropriate point – examples are as follows:

·         Earth: crystal, stone, plant.

·         Air: incense, feather.

·         Fire: oil burner, candle, burning resin.

·         Water: goblet/chalice containing water.

 3. Relax and breathe until you feel calm, centred.

 4.  Stand facing east, in the centre of the circle.

Imagine the wind all around you and tune in to the element of air.

With an athame, wand, or finger draw an outline of a pentacle in mid-air – say

“I call upon the energies of air”

 5. Continue to ‘cast’ the circle (clockwise) with your athame, wand, or finger until you face south. Imagine the fire crackling as you tune in to the element of fire.

With an athame, wand, or finger draw an outline of a pentacle in mid-air – say

“I call upon the energies of fire”

 6. Continue to ‘cast’ the circle (clockwise) with your athame, wand, or finger until you face west. Imagine rain, and waves, and the power of water all around as you tune in.

With an athame, wand, or finger draw an outline of a pentacle in mid-air – say

“I call upon the energies of water”

 7. Continue to ‘cast’ the circle (clockwise) with your athame, wand, or finger

until you face north. Feel the earth under your feet and send invisible roots down through the soles of your feet to connect with the earth. With an athame, wand, or finger draw an outline of a pentacle in mid-air – say

“I call upon the energies of earth”

8. Now you can do your magickal work in the safety of your magick circle.

 9. When you’ve finished your work, thank the spirits individually by bringing them into your thoughts and acknowledging them (Example: “Air, thank you for being here”, and so on)

Before you step out of your circle say “The circle is open, but never broken” – you can now leave your magickal space. 🌟🔮

Tarot Cards - 0 - The Fool ✨

MAJOR ACANA

0 – The Fool

Upright

The Fool represents beginnings, potential, and opportunity. He urges us to commit to something even though it may feel risky or we may not yet know the outcome of our actions – a risk-taker, the fool does not need to know everything; he has faith in himself and embraces the unknown without worry or anxiety!

When this card shows up in a reading he tells us the time is NOW Don’t wait until you have all the plans firmly in place, take a leap of faith, the world is yours, take the risk! 💫

A card of impulsiveness and spontaneity, The Fool is a sign of adventure and fun! 💕

If you are struggling with stress, anxiety, or self-doubt, meditate on The Fool and free your child-like inner self. Call on The Fool any time you feel overwhelmed by fear or dread and he’ll remind you that life is for living and enjoying – so don’t think about it, live it! 🙌🏻🌟

In Reverse

In contrast The Fool in reverse may suggest that you are biting off more than you can chew, taking too many risks, or are unprepared for what’s to come – so the advice here is to take stock, and only take calculated risks - because your actions will have consequences! 💗

WITCHCRAFT ON A BUDGET! 🍃🌹

We all know how wonderful it is to find that perfect item for our magickal space, and I’m sure we all admire other people’s stunning altars – but it really is possible to create a beautiful altar and practise the craft on a very low budget! 🙌🏻

A quick walk through the woods can give us an abundance of gifts! A perfectly formed piece of branch or twig can be collected and used as a wand for focusing and directing your energy. You can decorate this, or leave it as nature intended; always use items that call to you, and feel free to experiment!

Be mindful that things ordinarily thrown away can have great uses in magick! For example, you can clean out coconut shells to use as altar bowls, orange peel can be dried and used in fertility or love spells – and can be added to any spell to represent the sun’s energy…in terms of magickal spell ingredients, always be mindful that you are not discarding something that could be useful!

Many things which are readily available in our homes and gardens have powerful magickal properties!
