When Magicians Meet

Mystereum Magician

My intention this morning was to move on to another card in the D.O. The card has been chosen, the story lags behind and tells me it wants another day to brings lines into order. I decided OK, let’s take a break but then this story from 2 years ago today appeared in my time line memories and it’s a story that often makes me smile and so I thought I would share it here.

I read cards for very many people in very many places and every so often things happen that you know you’re going to remember for a very long time and smile often about… tonight was one of those nights… So I’m reading at launch party for a new business office and I notice a guy who keeps peeping across the room. Eventually he comes over to the table and says- ok… I’m curious… what do you do? I tell him I just make up stories and he laughs and says great, that’s what I do for a living too! I hand him the deck and he pauses and says… yes…I’m very curious, I’m curious about the cards but I’m also curious about you and I wonder what you can tell me before I turn over the cards… Hmmm, I say and I smirk as I see the way he instinctively shuffles and his hands move without a downward glance and the cards dance into graceful glides… I say… ok… you’re either a poker player or a magician… what’s your hustle? He laughs and tells me that he used to do card tricks so I challenge him to amaze me… He fans the cards and tells me to pick a card…pick any card… look at it, memorize it and put it back… He leads me through elaborate rigmarole until ta dah! IS THIS YOUR CARD! Why yes! Yes it is! 🤣🤣🤣 I then take him through his first ever tarot reading and he’s completely fascinated… his P.A. is sat next to him and he turns to her and asks her what she makes of it all… She laughs and says omg she knows more about your life than I do! He looks at me and says… you know… I thought this was a parlour trick but there’s something to this… what’s going on? I laugh and say I told you… I make up stories… He says yes but this is my story! How do you tell MY story? Ok… now keep this a secret but magician to magician, it really is very simple… I just found your cards… 😘

  1. Interesting. That image looks strangely familiar. I’m torn. I feel I might even find it attractive. Well, stranger things. 😉

    Wonderfully priceless experience. Thanks for sharing that. Why did I qualify ‘priceless’ with an adjective as it doesn’t need one? Well, yes, i feel it does. Priceless it a bit inaccessible, and frankly stale and hermetically sealed behind glass at the museum. It’s amazing how artifacts don’t suffocate being possessed and controlled that way. Though, wonderfully priceless has a joyous value to bring the infinite wealth of the priceless to life? … like that rockin’ wit you expressed above Mag to Mag, which is magical and wise in and of itself.

      1. That body is not the Magician… That’s an off duty Hanged Man climbing out of the pool after a dip with the High Priestess. The Thoth tipped me off about that pair… Get your Thoth out and put the two together… Then tell me that they don’t spend all their time sneaking off to meet at a fancy Lido… I hope the Magician’s lips are sealed as those butterfly eye wings have sure seen some things…

      1. ExACTLY! Let them verb in peace. It’s just when they walk right in your door AS IF… then It immediately transforms into, “ok, somebody wants to play.”

        It’s also a lot like Larry Laprise’s funeral. You know the guy, he invented the Hokey Pokie. They pulled up the coffin. They put his left foot in… and, that’s when the trouble started.
