At first glance, he seems more like a stage magician, a sleight-of-hand artist, than a master of manifestation. And yet, holding cards in his hand to represent the four elements, he reminds us that we can use many different resources, and especially tarot cards, in manifesting our intent. Though he has glitzy stars around him, and a top hat and tails, he also has glasses to sharpen his vision, and simple tools to work his will, nothing complicated or obvious.
This card reminds me of Derren Brown, who uses simple, psychological ideas to create huge effects. So, too, we can affect ourselves and our environment with just the words we say to ourselves, for example.
Here's hoping I, or one of my colleagues, can help pull a rabbit out of the hat today, metaphorically speaking. The meeting we're going to is the continuation of several last year that ended up going round in circles, when not exploding in acrimony. There are some big personalities, and bigger egos, involved. I mostly stay quiet, take notes, and try to calm things down when I can. If things carry on like this, there will be nothing productive to show for a full day of negotiations. We have a few ideas, though, about things that might help calm the waters. Wish us luck!
I am grateful for diplomacy.
