THE MAGICIAN DESCRIPTION
The Magician card is numbered One – the number of new beginnings and opportunities – and associates with the planet of Mercury. He stands with one arm stretched upwards towards the Universe, and the other pointing down to the earth.
His positioning represents his connection between the spiritual realms and the material realms. The Magician uses this relationship to create and manifest his goals in the physical realm. He is the conduit that converts energy into matter. The Magician’s robe is white, symbolizing purity, and his cloak is red, representing worldly experience and knowledge.
On the table in front of him are the four symbols of the Tarot suits – a cup, pentacle, sword and wand – each symbolizing one of the four elements – water, earth, air and fire. It is also a sign that he has all the tools (and elements) he needs to manifest his intentions into being.
Above his head is the infinity symbol, and around his waist is a snake biting its own tail – both of which signal that he has access to unlimited potential. And in the foreground is an array of foliage and flowers, symbolizing the blossoming and fruition of his ideas and aspirations.In reverse, the Magician shows you that you’re exploring what you wish to manifest, but you’re not taking action yet.You are uncertain if you have everything you need and are unsure about how to make it happen.
If you take care of what you intend to manifest, the Universe will work out how. Stay attuned to your intuition and pay attention to opportunities as they arise. These are like little breadcrumbs that will take you closer to your goal.If you’re already acting on your goal, this can be a sign that you are struggling to see progress or success.
You might have an idea but don’t know what actions to take to manifest it, or you are unclear on the desired outcome so your efforts are misdirected or unfocused.This could also be a sign that your end goal is out of alignment with your Highest Good and the Universe is sending you a sign to reassess and start again.Ask the Tarot: What needs to change so that I can achieve my goal?
