ToL Tarot Quest Location Introduction

RC Radio: Stage, Let the show begin!


In “The Stage” you meet with the second part of your active journey. You have emptied your vision from the Pyramid of Tomorrow and set your new self or creation into form. In the Empress location your vision was given birth, now, here, your reality is forming and you are seeing changes in it. Now you have come to the time of action and of steering your creation in the many directions it can go.

Once your reality creation is in full play, whether or not this becomes a positive experience or a negative one is up to you. You are the magician and it is your show. You will often have to choose the direction to take, positive, negative, good, evil, dark, light. Your creation needs your constant input and attention now.

The Magician is located between Kether and Chokmah on the Tree of Life. The spiritual energy of Kether mixes with the physically focused energy in Chokmah to create “The Stage.” It is a place where the will of the magician is made manifest. It is a place of magic and wonder, illusion, and grand design. You will not find a find a more potent place with the powers of manifestation.

The Stage is about using the tools you have collected along the way to direct the power of your will. The Stage is set, the script is written and the play has begun. Now you must deliver the part. You can choose to use any or all the elements at your disposal to deliver your performance.

The Wand represents the energy of fire, the cup water, sword air, pentacle earth. Put another way the elements of change, emotions, words and thoughts, and matter. These are the elements you need to direct your creation within time and space. You can consult the entity in the crystal ball if you need help on your journey, or do not understand the challenge or problem before you. The top hat is a symbol that you direct the magic and that some of this magic can be seen and some is unseen. You can decide what can come out of it and what stays in. The playing cards are a reminder that some chance and luck may be involved as well, but really the magician always knows what card he will draw, everyone else may think it is luck. The cape of illusion is to remind you that only you know the true nature of the reality you are creating. Others may not understand your vision and you may need to use the cape to shield the true nature of your vision from those that would seek to undo your work.
