A Jungian approach to Tarot
At the heart of it all, The Magus is the master alchemist. He makes magic from the raw materials of life. Mercurial in nature, he is quicksilver-fast, with lightning responses, a sharp tongue, and the kind of sleight-of-hand that puts street magicians to shame. He is fashioning the world from the vantage point of the Soul.
When The High Priestess and The Hanged Man come together like this, the lines between what is conscious and unconscious get a little more blurred. You may feel there are forces at play that go beyond your usual tête-à-têtes with the unseen and with your intuition. Instead of being at a distance, this watery world may feel immersive.
Are you going to trust yourself enough to take that leap, or to make that move – or just to change your idea of what’s possible?
It’s a fine line – that line between bypassing yourself out of where you are on the hope of the Nine of Cups, and knowing in the very bones of you that you are not limited by your past nor your circumstances; that there is the possibility of something new; that you have the right to wish.
For those of you who are supporting and following the Arkartia Kickstarter project, this one is just for you.
The Fool sparks a process of desire that burns inside you as a fire of self-love and radiates outwards into your world. You can share this with others; you can keep it for yourself. There is no ruling about how you are with this. But you become *aglow*.
Oh, I’m excited about this!
Tarot pioneers Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin have been working behind the scenes on a project for six years, and yesterday, they finally unveiled their vision – for a land called Arkartia.
Here you are, expressing The Magus – doing something, wanting to achieve something, bringing something together. Elements and qualities are being apportioned and applied. Now for the key ingredient; now to call her in. The Queen of Wands.
Can you step away from the state of the Three of Swords, and, in so doing, step on to the other side of that particular, now-obsolete, behemoth of an obstruction, and know that you’re no longer looking for the source of the light at the other side: you ARE the source of the light on the other side?
When close to 90% of the Tarot readings I do are about love- and intimacy-based relationships and the burning desire for them, then it’s worth watching Esther Perel dispensing the kind of wisdom that’s both practical and compassionate.
