The Magician is in complete control of his environment. He represents the power of the mind's focus, which creates the reality we are living in. Each of us is a magician, and our predominant thoughts are the magic spells that produce the life we are experiencing. All the situations you see in front of you can be changed, but first you must change where your mind is fixated.
What are your predominate thoughts during the day? Are they positive or negative? Are you even aware of your thoughts, or do they feel like they are on automatic? Did you know you have the power to change your focus and make your life better?
The Magician stands before his altar. There are four objects on the altar which represent the different elements of his external environment (emotional life, monetary life, predominate thoughts and ambitions). He is able to move the objects on the altar any way he chooses. This symbolizes his ability to affect his environment, and change his reality by making a decision. His white wand is raised high, channeling his best self. When you are channeling your best self you can also manifest marvelous things, as if by magic.
The best self is the part of us that feels limitless. When our minds are tuned into our best self we feel energized, motivated, confident, and open. We are fearless, and actually believe in our own talents and abilities. Unfortunately, we live in a society that borages us with images of how we really don't measure up. This affects our unconscious mind, which will run on autopilot until it is challenged. Once self doubt takes the megaphone, our best self can feel all but drowned out. If your predominant thoughts are: "I'm too fat." "I'm not good enough." "I can't do this." "I don't know how to make this work." "Guess that just life." "I'm a fraud." "I know I won't succeed at this anyway."..........then you are definitely not hearing your best self.
Today you must take responsibility for where you allow your mind to dwell. It's totally controlling your reality! #themagician#magician#tarot#elliotoracle#tarotreadersofinstagram#tarotcards#tarotreading#instatarot#tarotgram
Today is my 17th anniversary. Look at those kids in the picture! This is one of my favorite pictures of the two of us. We are at our best when we laugh together.
So how do two people stay together for 17 years? Is it some sweeping romance like Outlander or some fairytale like Cinderella? Yes. And No, absolutely not. Marriage is like life. Good days and bad days. Days when you laugh until you cry and days when the tears flow while you silently sit and hold hands on the couch. Moments of bliss, magic, contentment, anger, frustration, hurt. Moments where you are so in tune that you can read each other's thoughts and moments of miscommunication so grand that it will result in a firework of arguments.
When I was younger, I thought that love was an emotion. It isn't... not really. Love is a choice. When things are smooth and everyone is happy it is the easiest thing in the world to choose Love. When things are hard? That's when choice kicks in. That's when you have to truly commit and actively choose Love. Thats how you stay together. That's how you grow. It's remembering why you said Yes and continuing to say it.
My husband and I have an on going competition for Best Gift. Not most expensive or grand... but The Best. He already told me that I'm losing this year so this is my gift to him; a reading for our anniversary date.
10-19-01 The Wheel of Fortune, the Sun, and the Magician. Could there be better cards than these? There will always be good times and bad times, sometimes in our control and other times not. If we remember to celebrate the good times and stay positive even in the rough times, then we have everything we need to create the life we want.
Happy Anniversary, baby!
New business cards just arrived in the post. So pleased with how they've turned out.
Can't even begin to imagine the level of excitement I'll feel once the @etherealalchemisttarot deck is printed 😀.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend filled with love and good vibes.
Lots of love - Valentina xo 💜
ＦＲＩＤＡＹ ＶＩＢＥＳ ———————————————————————— Just a couple of kind reminders to kickstart your weekend ———————————————————————— ＳＰＩＲＩＴ — connect with your spirit, trust your gut and let your spirit guide you. What makes you happy? Listen to your truest desires ———————————————————————— ＦＩＬＬ ＵＰ ＹＯＵＲ ＷＥＬＬ———————————————————————— The most selfless thing you can do is to fill up your own inner well. When we are running around half filled, we subconsciously look to things and people around us to give us the nourishment and nurturing that we so deeply crave. Nothing can grow in barren lands. You are no good to anyone if you’re running empty. The feminine is bountiful, fertile, and rich. Tend to your own happiness and watch as the amount you have to give multiples. If your inner “well” isn’t full, you will find yourself craving things from the outside world to fill it. This is our body’s instinctive way of reaching for the grounding and nurturing that we are not allowing ourselves. What makes you truly happy? What inspires you? — do something today that puts a smile on your face! ———————————————————————— #arcana#ring#themagician#friday#vibes#whatmakesmehappy#rest#reset#readabook#drinkgoodcoffee#takealongshower#beautyrituals#fallcolors#wander#nature#sleep#candles#essentialoils
Where does this come from
You elevate me
Like stars await me
You are a purple fire
And I've noticed lately how I did not before
Was because I was dreaming
I am awakened
And here we are not forsaken
We are safe
Shell of light
Welcome me arranged glow Electra snow January
At least you will know I waited
How long has it been
Don't you see seven Pleiades?
It's not up to me
The way you are ascending
We are to be free
permanently alone but never lonely
In a golden bubble merging
No matter where it might flee and ebb endlessly toward harbours brimming never #begging#beginning 18 this is an ending I always needed stone kind of new brewing where is the screw how are you undoing what is where is why is ...fuck what I was doing
I find this effortlessly
One shot is the way to be
No reworking over and over and over recycled dome of it's fucking over whoa slow pull over need more time to be sober need rest need a coder
what you already do
I guess I'm over
I should have some kind of life
What do you surmise I'm doing tonight
Maybe kicking back in delight
Maybe kicking that wooden stool out and hanging
From the trees
Screaming 'Blood on the Leaves'
Because you left me, see
Was this pocket full of dreams
That I thought was nothing
Until the dancer in me came out as a spiritualist golden light bathing velvet blue never not into you grateful every second until there are no more to find gifts for you
I can't believe you
All I've been through
Lift the pure in me anew
I kept it just for you, 23
Always fire lately
don't want no fucking safety
You want an end to insecurity?
Watch me define raw purity
I'm not who you all knew
I'm something old and something brand new
I too could walk out
But I'm here for you to seer you
Mirror me please
I'm a sensitive soul, yeah
But the second you underestimate me
Forget you knew what it is to be an angel -T.O.H.
Roar! 🤘🌈💖I’ve been reading tarot a lot lately and it’s been so helpful. Do you read tarot cards? Comment below! .
Pictured my card from my daily single card reading #themagician from @the_wild_unknown 🌈💯featuring rainbows from @rainbowsymphony .

So since I read cards for others (just counted - in the last two weeks I’ve read for 30 different people lol!) I haven’t made a lot of time to read for myself lately. So today on this sick day at home (I am a coughing sneezing mess lol hoping I’m recovered for the market on Saturday and my lil workshop on Sunday) I decided to draw a lil card for myself. There’s some truths I want to lay bare at some point soon; I want to offer some illumination on some things that I don’t agree with and that I don’t think are right, that are happening in “witch community.” Am I at the risk of alienating people and pissing certain people off? Sure. I see this card as a nudge to do it anyway, to stand in my truth and know that I have all the tools I need at my disposal to make an important difference in the world and lives of others. The book of my life is mine to write and I can only live with integrity and in alignment with my heart. My flame is much bigger and brighter than I realize, and others are watching and see the warmth. Through speaking with intention and integrity it is possible to manifest the world we want into being; words, after all, create and reflect worlds, though the world always remains untranslatable. Integrity is more important than many things in this world. Sit, reflect, speak, and then DO in a way that stays true to you. 🌞✨ #themagician#witchesoftoronto#witchcommunity#tarotcommunity#tarotcard#tarotcardoftheday#themagiciantarot#darkdaystarot#cardoftheday#cardreader#torontotarot#torontotarotreader#divination#dailydivination
One of life’s truths that we tend to ignore is that there will be few moments where you will be entirely ready to move forward or pursue a new venture; but you must go on anyways. To be able to manifest your desires and goals, you have to take action even if you feel ill-equipped. If it is meant for you, the universe will assist in your favour, but you have to put in the work. Only you have the power to propel yourself forward, and a lot of the time, you will have to do so when you don’t think you have the energy.
It’s time for me to step out of stagnant waters. I have many gifts and talents on pause, because I’ve convinced myself that I’ve lacked the energy or that I wasn’t entirely ready. But that was a doubt I placed in my own mind. It’s time for me to stop fearing exhaustion. I’ll probably feel tired for the rest of my life, but I need to stop making it an excuse to put my life on hold. It’s time for me to work alongside fear and break through my own hesitation. It’s time for me to take the next leap on the ascent of who I am meant to become. .
