The Magician

Inline image 1The Magician Tarot card typically appears in a Tarot reading at a time in your life when you have the creative power and energy to create a new life cycle for yourself. You have the ability to take the power of the Universe and manifest your desires. The Magician Tarot card suggests that a situation has been (or soon will be) presented to you that has all the inherent components to allow the manifestation of your desires. Those desires may be spiritual (fire), physical (earth), emotional (water), or mental (air), and are each aligned with the four elements of the Tarot. You have the ability to make it happen!
With the Magician Tarot card, you are inspired to apply skill and initiative to accomplish all your goals. You have a strong desire to begin something new, to ‘do, act, or go forth’. A ‘can-do’ attitude and strong sense of optimism will dominate a new beginning and thus the decisions that you make will have positive results.
The Magician card sees you creating success in everything that you do. This is a Tarot card about manifesting your goals by utilising the skills, tools and resources that are available to you. The Magician suggests that you will come up with creative ways to solve problems and you will be able to use your existing knowledge and networks to arrive at solutions.
The Magician Tarot card is a good omen when you have a specific wish, when you begin a project involving creativity, or when you need to make a transformation of any kind. This is a great Tarot card for meditation when you need to call all the elements for help and wisdom.
The Magician Tarot card indicates that you can benefit from your creative forces if you can claim your power and act with awareness and concentration. This card is a signal to act consciously and act now provided you understand exactly what you want and are committed to getting it. You need to know what you are doing and why you are doing it. Be clear about your underlying motives and intentions.
The Magician is also a Tarot card of deep concentration on a specific task or activity. You need to be focused on a single goal or purpose at this time and you need to channel all of your energy, tools and resources towards this one goal. Commitment to the task is essential and as such, you will need to eliminate any distractions that will take your focus away from what you want to achieve.
The Magician shows that you are doing a great job at pulling together all of the skills, resources and tools that are available to you in order to bring about an outcome that suits you. You are keeping a very pragmatic head about you and you are trying to remain as objective and ‘can-do’ as possible, even if you are worried on the inside. Keep this up as it will help you to create as much success as possible. Keep thinking about what other skills and resources you can use and keep focused on the task at hand.

Not in it for the Wynne - but for us

Kathleen Wynne has been down before. She always gets back up.

I personally think there's one simple reason why this is the case.

Winning isn't why Wynne is in politics. Fighting the system isn't why she's in politics either. She truly believes that we can do better, be stronger - and that together, we have the tools to make this happen.

She believes in the people. That's it.

I believe that cynics are optimists yearning for the confidence to have faith.

With authenticity, with empathy, with scrappiness and and an unwavering faith in us, Wynne will always be THAT voice, especially when we need it most.

Trump - Canary

Donald Trump is the last hope for America! The globalists have hijacked our country & now it is time to take it back! !

Bernie Sanders supporters kinda felt the same way, didn't they?

Whether it's economic elites, immigrants, or mainstream media, there are a ton of people who feel particularly left behind.

It's not hard to see why.

There's a way back from this cliff, but we're going to need more than  words from those in positions of power.

The Card I Chose

I can live with this!

The Three of Wands indicates that your plans are now well underway and you are starting to consider even more opportunities to expand your current plans and maximise on the potential of your future. Everything is progressing steadily and as expected, thanks to your solid planning and ongoing motivation to persist.

The Three of Wands indicates opportunities to expand your horizons, through study, travel, business enterprise and learning. You need to become more aware of the opportunities that exist for you right now as there may be more than you are aware of. To best see and take advantage of them you must concentrate, cooperate and remain open-minded. You may be more aware that your best opportunities lie outside of your current environment, so it is time to think BIG. Consider what you can do to open doors for yourself and create more development and self-exploration opportunities. It also signifies the changes and challenges that are up ahead and that are associated with expanding your horizons and entering new territories. Given the man in this card can see far ahead of himself, then you are likely to already be aware of the upcoming changes and challenges and can prepare for them ahead of time.

Similarly, this card is also about embracing change and adopting a longer-term view. It indicates you are in a position of strength as you control what happens around you. Thus, this is a card of vision and foresight and looking for greater possibilities. You are being encouraged to become a visionary and to dream beyond your current limitations. Now is the time to accept your vision and be confident that you will achieve it. Move fearlessly into new areas. 

Given the expanse of the water in the card, the Three of Wands often depicts travel. This card encourages you to think big in terms of where you want to travel to and what you will discover along the way. This card sees you travelling over water to a far-away country, where you will then have the opportunity to fully develop yourself and learn many new things. I see this as a wonderful card of opportunity that encourages you to be bold and take this leap of faith to truly develop who you are.

Trump Talks Turkey

Significant wording, this.  

Trump's clearly seeing that the tea leaves aren't reading in his favour.  Despite all his talk about winning so much, he could very well be about to lose big.

So, he's framing.  If he loses, it won't be that the American people rejected him, but that the election was rigged.  How else could he lose when he's clearly the best, smartest, longest-fingered dude with the most sacrifice/success/hot women on the planet?

It's his victory, period - and if he doesn't win, well, someone had to have taken that victory from him, right?

So here's the big concern that has to be on Homeland Security's mind.  Let's say Trump tells his supporters that the election was stolen from him using some of the rhetoric he's used in the past.  Maybe he doesn't tell them to fight back against the system and put him in power - but maybe he just says some things that, when each word is connected to the next, kind of insinuate that.

Trump has a lot of angry, gun-owning people in his base.  There are white supremacists and other bigots who see this as their moment and might be just as angry to see it taken from them.

Remember that failed coup in Turkey?

We know who could trump that.
