ART OF MAGIC
“When this card appears, it indicates skill and knowledge which comes from many sources connected to the practitioner of the arts. The card reminds us to draw upon our resources, both inner and outer.” It is time for interaction, emersion, and mastery.
“Traditionally, the magical arts were taught over many years and required personal application and effort. Tools were created as an aid to learning how to attract and direct magical energy. Ritual and magical tools are a mean of connecting and interfacing, as well as wielding the forces to which we have access. They serve as a means of touching what is essentially untouchable.”
“The card depicts magical items and tools on a desk along with an old grimoire containing spells and rituals. A black cat, symbolizing the mysteries that reside in the shadows, sits amidst the magical items. Behind the cat is the grimoire of ritual and magic, which contains all that is worthy of preservation. The pentacle, wand, athame, and chalice represent the interplay of the four elements of earth, air, fire, water. On the desk are several papers containing symbols, which serve to encapsulate vital and important concepts. By looking at the symbols, the mind is directly linked to the energy that is connected to the thing it represents.”
THE SHADOW’S EDGE
“The Art of Magic card takes up the idea that reality can be reshaped and redirected by mystical means. The card reveals that tools and concepts exist that we may draw upon. These are the time-proven methods of those who came before us. The message of this card is that we can tap into the momentum of the past, a living current of ancestral energy flowing through time.” Tap into the magic that resides within you to help redirect or reshape your life and future. Use your innate ability to connect with your past, present, and future; thus who and where you were, who and where you are today, and who and where you want to be tomorrow.
