Anonymous asked: My life has always been a sort of whirlwind-things rarely go as planned and often don't go so well. Lately, it seems that I am getting opportunities that might mean my dreams will come true: Should I take these chances, throw myself out there, and hope everything works out okay? Thank you very much.
If eyes are suddenly on you, then give ‘em a show, Querent! Please don’t psych yourself out by thinking in terms of your dreams coming true, or about how stuff didn’t work out in the past. The Magician can’t afford to think about these things, he has to remain fully in the present moment, alert and attentive to what’s happening in the audience right this second. Throw yourself out there, observe what happens, and try to take the future just one card-trick at a time from there.
