The Magician/Sangoma card is about focusing and making full use of your own internal power. This card indicates that we must use our inherent gifts and talents for our own growth and for the good of others. This week you should feel inspired to meet the challenges in your life. To make a difference, all that knowledge that you have been gathering, the work and effort that has been put into projects pays off.  This is a time of expansion and an opportunity to realise your potential.

The key is to harness and direct your own magic, respect the journey you are on and find the balance between intuition and intellect. Be versatile and flexible.  Be innovative and find creative ways to make it happen, even be inventive and try new ways that better serve your needs.

Communication is enhanced. The Magician/Sangoma is ruled by the Planet Mercury which is all about communication, skill and logic. Be aware of the powers around you and be proactive rather than reactive.  When too much energy is building up (positive and negative) there come a tipping or breaking point. Make sure that energy is focused and directed to the outcome you desire. Communication is not always about what we say, its also about how we listen.  We need to listen more … to our bodies, to our inner voice and to truly hear what is being said by those around us.  Sometimes saying nothing says everything. If you are called on to counsel a friend, colleague or partner, you would serve them well by being present and truly listening.  The same goes for if you are needing counsel, seek out that person or group that is aligned with your beliefs and objectives. Help is available, all you have to do is ask.

There is a saying … when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.  The Magician/Sangoma indicates that there is a mentor available to help and guide.  Be on the lookout for that teacher.  Sometimes life is the teacher, but with this card it is a person or group that can take you to the next level of understanding.

The number 1 is associated with new beginnings, it is also associated with ‘self’.  On the positive side its about growth, development and the use of creative skills, on the down side it could be about ego, sense of self importance.  The Magician/Sangoma is served by the four elements, air, fire, water and earth – which can translate to our own aspects of body, mind, soul and speech, so it is up to us to make sure that we are balanced and that each aspect of self is in harmony with the others.

We all have the ability to connect to the greater consciousness, to connect with our divine and our spirit, when we make that connection with clarity and intent we are able to create new cycles that manifest our desires.  Apply your skills and make it happen.  Be clear about your wishes, know what the motivation and intent is, follow through with the commitment without distractions and it will happen.
