I have been trying to think of ways in which I could make the Birth Card pairs come to life. I thought that it might be fun to have a Birth Card pair chatting over coffee or drinks. I was going to work with the gentlest Birth Card pair that I could find, just so the conversation would be, shall we say, a “nice, quiet one” Best laid plans, and all of that. The first two individuals that choose to speak were the ones that were the hardest for me to write about – The Devil and The Lovers. They choose to speak over drinks … fair warning! Today’s Birth Card pair are the Wheel of Fortune and the Magician. They are seated in a Starbucks in Seattle, sipping their latté’s and watching the people around them.
“We’re moving rather quickly into the year 2012, aren’t we. Well, quickly from the human perspective. The Year of the Hierophant to them, as well as the Year of the Water Dragon. I think they took to those images well.” James Carmichael, the man speaking, could have passed as the CEO of any Fortune 500 company. With his pressed khaki’s, high end shirt, perfectly cut hair, gold watch and expensive sun glasses, he fit right in with the movers and shakers in Seattle. This was his forte – he fit in wherever he was. He carried the energy of the Wheel of Fortune, so he needed to be able to adapt himself, so that he could help humankind adapt.
The man sitting across from him, Jonas Chang, took a sip of his latté as he thought about his partner’s words. Chang, dressed in dark slacks, cream colored shirt, open at the neck, and wearing a gold ring and watch, was a bit more flamboyant than his partner. He also had expensive sun glasses on the table beside him.He carried the energy of the Magician. “I think that it is time to bring out the big guns. Those who were going to adjust have done so, those who are scared of their own shadow have found their own places to hide. From past experience with humankind, those who are uncertain will continue to hang back until they find strong leadership. So, we need to allow those who are going to be the leaders to come into their own.”
“The wheel of life certainly has taken humankind full circle. In their current lifetime they have been on top of the world, then found out that their world was built on false premises. They still refused to believe, so we had to go in and adjust their lives down to the very core. Some leaders have begun to emerge, and we are seeing a combination of what they term “lifestyle changes” and a reconnection to the old nature ways. It is a precarious balance, but they do seem to be seriously trying, Jonas.”
“Paul, I do agree with you … as far as you are going.” A slight smile crossed Chang’s face, and his eyes danced with the focused sense of mischief that only he carried.”
Paul drew his focus away from the room and placed it on his partner. Jonas was a great idea man, and he was the one that gifted humankind with the ability to manifest, but sometimes that came at a price. What did that smile mean this time?
“In what direction do you want to take the wheel this time, Jonas?”
“Don’t worry, Paul. I have no intention of upsetting anything. The power that I want to bring to them is the power to manifest, and the understanding of what they are manifesting.”
“And how, exactly, are you planning on doing this?”
“We do have a platform already set for this work. Several human years ago we came across an individual that agreed to work with us. He altered his life path, consciously, and brought some things into the world that brought significant change to those that accepted them.’
“Ahhhh – you would be referring to James Wanless, and his early work with the “Voyager Tarot”, and his “Strategic Intuition for the 21st Century”. Great strides were made there, as to that point no one had taken that type of thought into the workplace. I know that you headed him in a new direction … the Green Man concept, I believe.”
“Yes, I started him with the Green Man concept. Now I am moving him into a stronger form of manifesting. He is calling it “The Fortune Formula … Having It All”. He has created the ten golden rules of manifestation, and has it out there now as an MP3 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGbRdk7edN8). I am going to have him build on this.”
“Well, I do have to agree that he has a strong enough personality to bring this off. Where are you taking it, once humans realize that they can consciously manifest, at will?”
“That’s the really great part, Paul! Once they experience unlimited self-confidence, and are able to maintain control over their will, I am going to open up the direct connection with Gaia – the one that we closed when they lost their way.”
“I knew this time had to come. You do realize that we will have to stay together for the time being, to see this through.”
“Don’t worry – I won’t take off on my own. This is one of the greatest parts of the contract that we agreed to when we took on this energy. This is what I have been waiting for!”
Paul smiled to himself. Chang was a bit of a loose cannon at times, and certainly had the bling, but he also had the ability to do the work. That, and Paul had his own contract with James Wanless that would assure that things did not get out of hand.
