The Magician

Look, I'm not a true believer in questionaires and quizzes but once you're caught with your hair in that steam iron thingie waiting for the dye to set in, there's nothing much to do except pick up the latest edition of Women's Weekly or such. And I gotta admit the girly mags are way more fascinating than Men's Health - and yeah, that's even with the delicious hunk on the cover.

So reading through girly magazines in the hair salon, I usually attempt two or three quizzes over how viciously I tear down others while climbing that career ladder or whether my best friend is trying to undermine me by stealing my boyfriend. Come on, how can you not resist those catchy captions...

Ten Ways to a Better Boyfriend
Get That Promotion, and the Man!

Or even better the sinfully shocking dramas unfolding within! The incestuous girl who slept with her half-brother! The tramp of a mother who seduced her daughter's husband! The naughty gal who crept downstairs to offer special services to her older neighbour while her mama slept soundly nearby! I mean, come on sometimes the overly dramatic family scandals can be better than Jerry Springer at his best - and we're all deeply appreciative voyeurs at heart.

See why those mags are such bestsellers?!

You are The Magician

Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.

Eloquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing,
you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.

The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. Reflecting this is the fact that the Magician is represented by Mercury. He represents the gift of tongues, a smooth talker, a salesman. Also clever with the slight of hand and a medicine man - either a real doctor or someone trying to sell you snake oil.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

I think I'm getting addicted to these quizzes. Isn't it amazing what you can find out with these quizzes? I mean, come on... it might be made for everyone but I gotta admit it hits pretty close!

You are the World (Universe)

Completion, Good Reward.

The World is the final card of the Major Arcana, and as such represents saturnian energies, time, and completion.

The World card pictures a dancer in a Yoni (sometimes made of laurel leaves). The Yoni symbolizes the great Mother, the cervix through which everything is born, and also the doorway to the next life after death. It is indicative of a complete circle. Everything is finally coming together, successfully and at last. You will get that Ph.D. you've been working for years to complete, graduate at long last, marry after a long engagement, or finish that huge project. This card is not for little ends, but for big ones, important ones, ones that come with well earned cheers and acknowledgements. Your hard work, knowledge, wisdom, patience, etc, will absolutely pay-off; you've done everything right.

I am Strength. How cool is that? Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgment, but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy.

This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion's hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden's steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion's mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one's personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.

So, what are you doing to your hair???

Uh, Should I be worried that I'm the DEVIL?

Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession

The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.

Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius.

These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires.

This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction.

On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious.

This, too, is a form of enslavement.

As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive.

This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist.

The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.


I guess this is kinda true tho, especially the too restained part. Sometimes I just need to let loose!

Not sure about the man of power part though, certainly not feeling too powerful right now!

And I'm definitely not addicted to anything (except blogging).

You are The Wheel of Fortune

Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of intoxication with success

The Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change.

Hmm..quite true, everyone called me a happy-go-lucky bastard even strangers! but for the record, not on

I'm the Devil too!

Who cares...

savante said...

Seems like a popular card, shane!

Well doesn't mean those cards aren't good, junkie.

Whoa, you are the world, michelle! Powerful!
