I am continuing with the exercises in Rachel Pollack’s Book Tarot Wisdom She has at least one spread for each of the major arcana cards in the tarot. Apparently two in some cases.
Here is the second spread that she suggests for the Magician card and the results that I got.
Anybody who may be reading this, I would love some feedback.

What does magic mean to me? V of Pentacles – “Finding greater meaning in the ordinary struggles of life” “changes in circumstances” -also healing and comfort to disenfranchised. That kind of works, especially the first. So much of my life has been about searching for meaning and understanding
How does magic act in my life? 7 of Pentacles-“Enjoyment of Nature” “Contemplation of work that has been done or needs to be done”; “Satisfaction” – So putting that together magic acts in a way that brings me closer to nature (closer to my nature)
Where do I look for magic? The Hierophant (Reversed)-Taking the road less traveled- The Unconventional route-Don’t try to fall in line with another person’s truth – Seek my own.
How do I find magic? The Page of Pentacles (Reversed) – Relaxation after intense study, not something i can force or make happen– So I can learn about magic, study it, but i can only find it by not looking. How zen 😉 and how true
How do I use magic? VIII of Pentacles (Reversed)-Time to move to the next level-transitional–after work has been learned [!!!???!!! OK All this after my realizations of yesterday (see last blog entry). What are you trying to tell me universe?]
How can I become a magician? Knight of Cups (reversed) – “Something may stir him to action or inner conflict will become too deed” Taking action in difficult situations” When there is a need and when I have no choice, that is what I will become.
What will magic mean to me? X of Wands “A card of new life and a greater awareness of the meaning of your actions and enthusiasms”
