The Magician advises...

  • You have a real opportunity to achieve a goal now. The key is to work to clarify your vision, and then focus on that vision until it is a reality. When your intentions and actions are aligned, real magic occurs.
  • It is important to align your thoughts and actions with your desires. If there is something you want, but your thoughts are discouraging, or your actions are out of alignment, start to make small changes. Start each day by asking yourself, "What do I need to think and do today to get closer to my goal?"
  • Start gathering the resources and making the connections you need to pursue your goals. Being informed, well-prepared, and using your words skillfully may be very helpful now.

The  Magician warns...

  • Beware of harming others in the pursuit of your own goals. Sometimes when we really want something, our vision becomes too focused and we can be blind to others' desires.
  • Beware of someone trying to deceive or manipulate you to gain what they desire.

The Magician predicts...

The outcome of this situation is up to you. You have an opportunity now. If you commit yourself to your vision, and take concrete action, it is very likely that you will achieve what you desire.
