MUSIC AND TAROT BACKGROUND
One of the best ways to learn something is through making a personal connection to it. Being that Tarot speaks to so many facets of life, lyrics lend themselves well to the cards. Music has power and we make connections to it on a regular basis. In a way it’s magic because it can transport us back to moment frozen in time as the music and lyrics pluck memories from our minds.
The Magician is considered the wise man of the Tarot. He is perfectly confident in his abilities and is continuously learning. Totally, in harmony with his environment he’s knows exactly what to do and when. People follow him willingly and often go to him for advice.
- Noble Use of Talents
- In harmony with one’s environment
MY SONG CHOICE
This song is a classic. Everyone and their dog knows it! Honestly, I wasn’t sure I knew it but I really like the lyrics and went to give it a listen. Sure enough, I KNEW IT. But really, a mysterious stranger on a train giving you sage advice? Totally a magician thing. The lyrics talk about knowing when to play your cards, when to fold, when to run, and when to walk away. Overall, I think it is a great match for the Magician. He said, “Son, I’ve made a life
Out of readin’ people’s faces
And knowin’ what the cards were
By the way they held their eyes.
So if you don’t mind my sayin’
I can see you’re out of aces
For a taste of your whiskey
I’ll give you some advice.
