The Magician Reversed with jumpers-2 of Wands and 6 of Chalices Reversed.
These cards give a very clear message: wait before moving forward!!! With just having celebrated the New Moon (I will be tomorrow), you may be ready to get your feet on the ground and manifest those intentions. However, we’re being told to hold our horses and chill for a bit. Allow those intentions to really set before we begin action. All because we aren’t actively working towards them doesn’t mean we aren’t doing anything. Remember that!
The Magician is telling us things are not in our control at the moment. Wait. Don’t force it. 2 of Wands is all about looking to the future, reflection, and balancing our thoughts. The magician is balanced so this could be what must be controlled first. 6 of Chalices means that we are being drawn to look back at the past, at the old, but with a sense of detachment. We are being called to release. There may be something from the past you are still secretly clinging to which isn’t going to be conducive to manifestation.
Today is all about the pause. What do I mean about that? Before we do anything we must first think of it. Imagine it. Before there is action, there is a slight pause that is expansive and full of potential. This would be were emotions are stirred up which makes it a powerful moment (regardless of how short). Relish in this pause. Allow yourself to experience it. Use it as a springboard for enthusiasm, motivation, and excitement. This is also the place in which fear arrives but that isn’t bad. Wanna know why? Fear makes our trust and desire stronger. With fear we have to trust even more in ourselves and the outcome. Tell me that isn’t beautiful! It doesn’t have to be only for all things magick but mundane as well. Remember life is magick.
