Magic is the act of making your will manifest in the universe.

Unfortunately, magic as seen in Buffy and Charmed does not exist. Magic is about gathering your will, and focusing all your energy to bring about the outcome you are seeking.
Magic uses tools and symbols to align your energies with your purpose.
Colors correspond with certain emotions, feelings, and energies. Same for gemstones, essential oils (smells), musical instruments, animal energies, I could go on.
The most important rule of magic, what you send out into the universe will come back to you threefold. For good or ill. Karma’s a bitch.
My tarot deck is spooky accurate yo.

Of course the tarot was designed so that each card could be applicable in almost any situation. But it’s not about the cards ability to predict the future, it’s about how you interpret the message and apply it to your life now, to either change or improve your situation. To gain new insight into a question you’ve been struggling with, or to see new possibilities you hadn’t considered.
In a recent reading, I used a spread called the Tree of Life, about personal and spiritual growth. The cards showed what I need to learn, my challenge, my guiding card, what will help me, what warning to heed, what to let pass, and the end result of this growth.
I also enjoy reading cards for other people. As I start to describe the card’s meaning, in relation to it’s spot in the layout, the look on their face tells me if we’re getting close to home. Then it becomes a conversation about the many possibilities of action that can be taken in response to the card.
‘What does it mean, and what should I do about it?’
Well Dear Reader, have you had your cards read?
Tarot cards. Goddess energy. Calling the corners.
In my youth, I spent a couple of years studying the basics: sabbats, correspondences, the zodiac. Lately I’ve been dipping my toes into the Metaphysical Pool again. Join me here on Fridays to learn about a new topic each week.
