Those with good intentions are great at leading teams, getting people to cooperate etc. Those who are selfish with this card tend to be manipulative and controlling, but not in an overt way. Their control tactics are more subtle and nuanced. Think passive aggressive as an art form.

Most people with this personality card however, are masterful at turning their ideas into reality.  Many of them are multi-talented and highly inventive or creative.  Their ability to both see a vision and put that plan into action gives them an edge that many others don’t have.  These are the people that we marvel over and just wonder how they are so naturally talented.  The truth is, it’s a lot of hard work, but they make it look easy.

The positive personality traits of the Magician are resourcefulness, intelligence, and creative strategy.  The challenges with this personality are a tendency to be controlling and manipulative when it suits their agenda. They want things the way they want things and will do whatever it takes to ensure they get what they desire.

A well-balanced magician is multi-talented, charming and naturally persuasive.  They also exude a magnetic kind of energy that others want to emulate.  They can lead by example and be great role models.

Tarot Personality Card The Fool

Every Tarot card has personality traits associated with it.  These can be helpful when looking at other people, but also for personal reflection.  Perhaps you want to know what your greatest strengths and challenges are? The cards can give great insight into the personality and help you develop strengths and face your weaknesses.

The Fool

The Fool Tarot CardThe Fool personality is someone who is youthful in their approach to life.  They are naturally curious, open to new experiences and they tend to be rather adaptable to change.  They are sometimes a bit “flaky” as they are very in the moment and not overly concerned about the future.

Not the best planners, but they are more spontaneous and free-spirited than others, which opens their eyes to possibilities that might go unnoticed by those around them.

Their greatest strength can be their detachment.  They are able to leave the past behind and not remain stuck there. They are also able to fully enjoy the present moment and that can open this person to a range of experiences that others might miss or take for granted.

The challenges with the Fool personality can be a tendency to not plan well, to only “fly by the seat of their pants” and as a result, they often trip over challenges that could have been preventable with a bit of foresight and planning.

When properly balanced, the adventurous openness of this card is rare and refreshing.  It is the ability to embrace life and really live it with arms wide open.

Tarot Reflections The Moon

Tarot Reflections The Moon

tarot inspirations the moonThis card symbolizes deceptions, depression, and all that is associated with them. The scorpion rises up out of the water (emotions) and is poised to strike. Often our emotions and feelings of being overwhelmed can sting like this scorpions bite, without much warning. It is in these moments we are called to remember the power we have to choose how we act/react.

Our power lies in our ability to carefully choose our actions, what we will believe etc. There is a saying that says “To worry is to pray for what you don’t want”. When we focus on hardship we bring more of the same to our lives through the law of attraction. Learn to take charge of your reactions and don’t be overcome by circumstances. This too shall pass.

The moon speaks also of intuition – that ability to sense/feel what is going on, but in a way that is not clouded by fear and judgments. Learn to listen for this still, small place in moments where it feels emotions may overwhelm you.

Be a good friend today to someone in need (perhaps even yourself) who needs an objective person to listen and empathize. Use your emotional/intuitive side to benefit others. If you feel someone is in need of something you can provide aid that person. If you are in need of some down time to clear your head, take some time for yourself to do just that.

Take anyone’s overreactions or overemotional displays with a grain of salt. We all have those days where our emotions get the better of our sound judgment. Be careful you aren’t the one overreacting too ;).
