Each week, I pull a card from a random Tarot deck to bring us a message or piece of wisdom that we can think about or use in our lives on some level – if not now, we can refer back to it when it seems to be more fitting for us. This is food for thought, and not drawn for any one particular person or situation.
Merlin is the Magician of the Tarot, and he offers us some powerful and inspiring thoughts to work with. The focus now is on turning thoughts and ideas into reality. It’s all about manifesting!
This isn’t the same thing as wishful thinking and hoping, because while those are creative ventures that do have value, a wish cannot take shape and be manifested without the proper actions! Merlin speaks to us this week about taking action and finding the willpower within ourselves to accomplish tasks creatively, and to apply our skills, organization, and focused attention to the tasks at hand.
If we use this energy wisely, we can expect a very productive week! There is opportunity to get a lot accomplished during this time – despite that Mercury Retrograde is spinning its wheels around us right now!
Merlin assures us that we have everything we need in this moment to work toward an important goal. If you think you need to wait because you don’t have what you need, you may want to rethink that idea. If you don’t have something you feel is needed right now, consider how you might be able to improvise. Work with what you have in this moment, and whatever else you might need will be shown to you at the right time. What you need will be made available to you in some way.
You are reminded at this time to use the tools and opportunities presented to you in order to achieve your goals. You must commit yourself to the goals at hand and act on them. You must also remember not to be self-limiting . . . and if at first you don’t succeed . . . yes, you know the story — try, try again!! Failures are not complete losses or total disasters if you use the experiences as opportunities to learn and gain knowledge to better prepare yourself for the next time around. And so, Merlin reminds you that you have what it takes to succeed! Whether you use this to your best advantage or not is up to you!
Whatever you do this week, know that your willpower can make things happen for you. As the saying goes . . . “Where there is a will, there is a way!”
