self paced learning

“The Mage is a Guardian Constellation whose Season is Rain’s Hand when magicka was first used by men. His Charges are the Apprentice, the Golem [Atronach], and the Ritual. Those born under the Mage have more magicka and talent for all kinds of spellcasting, but are often arrogant and absent-minded.”―The Firmament

Those born in the season of Rain’s Hand (April) 1st - 30th

Soul color: Orange/Red

Temperament: Independent and ingenuitive individuals who are enthusiastic about their pursuits. The Mage brings forward thinking energy to others’ lives with exciting quirks and magnetic personalities. This sign may display brutal witticisms and temper tantrums, but overall they pull through to the positive. It is important to note that The Mage signs do not like taking orders or asked to wait.

Abilities: Unlike The Atronach’s deep reserves of magicka, The Mage focuses on learning and replenishing. Though this is not as suitable for conjuration, it is far better in other schools of magic that require less magicka to cast on their own. The ability to weave the threads of Aetherius comes as naturally as breathing, having many under this sign question why it isn’t so easy for others.

Friendships and Family: The Mage may travel, they may drift apart from their own, but they will always keep a close eye on friends and family. At times their blunt and arrogant temperaments will be of strange inspiration, but display caution when arguing with them. When amidst defeat in a quarrel, they will often become moody and childish.

Success: They are go-getter, activists, gamblers, and opportunists. They are quick to jump into a task and start moving the strings; however, if whatever they are focusing on does not appear to be successful, the sign will quickly lose interest. They have a low tolerance for boredom, and tend to become temperamental when tasks do not ‘go their way’.

Romance: There is no lack of excitement, they are fast paced but often short lived. A partner that allows The Mage to have freedom is ideal, and to be willing to go along with whatever adventure they wish to indulge next. Though their energy can be exhausting for some, it may be uplifting to others.

Struggles:  Admitting failure is necessary to assess the situation, advice is needed to become more aware; sometimes life is unfair and others manipulate fates too easily. These are all difficult for The Mage to swallow, the realization that they are fallible, impatient, and self-dictating. Learning to pace themselves, and become patient will benefit their progress in life greatly. Take at least one page from the sload in that regard.
