“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” Buddha
The Magician (Mercury) is self-directed and self-assured. It’s because he knows he has the tools and he knows how to use them. It’s instructive to note how.
He calls upon each element—fire for creative passion, water for emotional depth, earth for real-world results, air for considered reasoning—combining it with the infinite energy of Spirit to breathe life into his will. He is the personification of “As above so below.”
Energy doesn’t disappear. It only changes form. (I just love it when physics and Tarot speak the same language. Does that make me a geek?)
Physical, emotional and mental energy are married. If it’s happening on one level, it’s happening on all the others. It reverberates within the realm of each element. So to direct it, get aligned with what you want.
Think thoughts consistent with what you want. Feel emotions consistent. Take action consistent. Live your life consistent. Call upon the Universe for consistent. Each bit reinforces the others, amplifies the vibration. With all this on your side, how could you lose?
Well, I can think of one way, I reckon…when your will is other-directed and it happens to conflict with the expression of free will. You may just run head on into a brick wall of vibrational mismatch, thank you very much. I consider it like the the Free Will rider: You get full access, provided you grant others full access. Anything less and it’s a power struggle in the making.
I see the Magician as a perfect embodiment of Free Will. He makes his own karma, precisely with how he chooses to use his power.
Can you see the Magician in how you call up your own power?
