The Magician


As a student of the way of the tarot, I tend to pull cards whenever I am called to do so. I can go weeks without touching them, then the messages flood in to get such and such a deck for a transmission from another dimension… basically.

Due to the fear I have been dealing with inside of myself as of late due to my current vocational circumstances, I needed my Rider-Waite deck for guidance… or rather, it needed me to receive its message for today. I pulled two Major Arcana which is highly auspicious… major messages that I must take seriously.

This is the poem the cards inspired…

The Devil came out first…

In reverse.

It urges me to take my power back from those who aim to possess it,

Whether it is their intention

Or not;

To unshackle my mind and soul

From the will of another to dominate it.

I am not the slave of Fear and Dread.

I am the Magician,

Holding all that I need

To stand in my Light and my Power,

Above and Below,

To never back down or cower in submission.

I am the Magician,

And I have a motherfucking sharp sword.

Thank the Mysteries it’s Friday….


Always Move Forward


The Fool tells us to forge forward in love and kindness,

While the Five of Air reminds us to become unbound by the regrets of the past,

To always transform,


Evolve beyond the tatters of our cocoons,

And take to the wind

Like those winged whisps of colour, light and silent music heard only from within.

Six of Water


Don’t be afraid, my sweet one.

You are safe now,

Here in the water, in my dripping heart.

Remember playful, childlike times past,

And let them dilute your concentrated fears.

Come to me, my sweet one.

I will caress and kiss you, and hold your delicate soul within mine.

And you will never know pain and loneliness again.
