SM 3: The Magician — Making Choices and Using What You've Got

The Magician teaches us how to harness our will and achieve our desires. Tune in to this episode to learn about the symbology of this card, see some examples of the Magician in pop culture, and find out how to use it to create some magic of your own....Vocab: Major Arcana - The 22 archetypal cards (numbers 0 through XXI) that make a tarot deck a tarot deck rather than just a deck of playing cards.Magic - changing material reality or consciousness according to one's will; often combines symbols, emotional charge and action to initiate transformation . Suits: The four sections of a tarot deck that correspond to the suits in a regular deck of playing cards. In the case of the tarot it's cups (hearts), pentacles (spades), diamonds (swords), wands (clubs). Heroes Journey: The common trope of stories that involve a hero who goes on an adventure, has a crisis, wins a victory, and then comes home changed or transformed bringing a gift to her people. Athame: A witch's ceremonial knife.Archetypes - an overarching pattern of behavior or a “way things happen”, specifically refers to religion, mythology, symbols, literature and art. See also Carl Jung. Keys - the keys of the tarot are the tarot cards themselves but most often refer to the Major Arcana. They’re called keys because they open up portholes to new ways of thinking. Correspondences - within the occult, objects, symbols, astrological signs, elements, metals, crystals and many other objects and signs relate to each other through a system known as correspondences. For instance, Major Arcana 3, the Empress, corresponds to the planet Venus. ....

BTW 7: 5 of Cups - Coping with Grief and Loss with Poet Ariana Reines
