Doubling up this Magickal Day
This Magickal Day is powered by the Ace of Pentacles and Death reversed.
A funny thing happened on the way to today's Magickal Day card: I drew and discarded one (Ace of Pentacles) and then willfully replaced it with another random draw (Death reversed). Oh, why did I do that?!
Not to worry. I know most of you don't like to see the Death card because you take it literally--which is rarely how Tarot readers see it--and a reversed Death sounds even creepier. But remember that I've talked about how cards have an amazing range of meanings and how I quickly lock onto what they mean in the moment. Well, it turns out that both of these cards are pointing to the same thing with Death reversed just turning up the heat by several notches because I was...well, bored with the Ace of Pentacles or something. My bad.
Change, mostly in practical, material matters, is in the works. Both cards are talking about a new birth--ironic, right? But that Death card is shaking up and clearing obstructions, especially internal, hidden, obscure, formerly elusive but nevertheless devilishly effective ones. The door is swinging open.
So, yes, there's a new birth on the way, and you should see some sign or proof of that today. If you've put energy into a project, look for good movement towards a result or even for the desired result itself to show up today in its infant form. You can continue to nourish it and nurture its growth.
Have a great day!
