Working with The Magus
The Magus, at his highest level of interpretation, indicates the intricate and complex web of influences that binds the Universe to itself, and to all else. This is essentially a card about communication, but on the subtle levels beyond the material world.
If you want to manifest your heart's desire into the mundane world, you will have to come to terms with the actuality, the workings and the efficient manipulation of this web, understanding its laws and vagaries.
This web is what causes so-called 'coincidences', or those freak connections that we make right when we most need them. It is this system that brings the teacher to the student at exactly the right time, puts the very book we need on the bookshelf just when we needed it, draws the right person into our lives at the opportune moment.
You can see, therefore, how essential it is if you want to achieve your highest possible destiny, that you develop your understanding of the web of life. And in so doing, become a magus of sorts yourself.
So on a day ruled by the Magus, we need to be experimenting with the way this web works. We need to look at the thoughts we are transmitting ourselves - because what goes around comes around, remember? What we put out eventually finds its way back to us - coloured by everything it has touched along the way. This is the single most practical reason for positive thinking!!
We need to consider our overall direction and the things we are doing to fulfil our aspirations. We need to look at how every single action we take can be made into an act of magick. People miss this concept all the time. Yet holding the idea in the forefront of your mind changes the way that you approach your daily activities.
So acting with intent is another thing we can practise on the day of the Magus. For instance, if you cook a meal, cook it with the intention that it will sustain the very spirit of those who eat it. If you do the washing up, do it remembering that you are washing away the stains of the world. If you are driving to see a friend, regard the journey as another step in your growth and development. Get the idea? Practise everything with intent. From personal experience, let me tell you it really gets the mundane stuff done quickly, efficiently and with a full heart.
Also when working the affirmation for today, remember one thing - if you aren't happy with your life the way you've made it so far, the Magus releases the power within you to make it something happier and more satisfying. All you have to do is begin........
Affirmation: "My life is everything I make it."
