The Wild Unknown

“The Magician is a card of boundless expansive energy. Whereareas many of the major arcana deal with stillness or aspects of the mind…this card is al about action, action, action. It is time to see yourself as the wildcat – embrace his speed, grace and abilities. Do not be afraid to begin. You have the power of all four elements within your reach. Now is the time to use them” – Kim Krans, TWU
