Tarot > The Magician
Magician marks a time for showing initiative and for new beginnings and
opportunities that show great promise for the future.
When this card appears in your reading, it can indicate possible
opportunities. If you have the willpower and determination to pursue your
goals, you have every chance of being successful.
The Magician is all about harnessing your own magic, finding the charm and
artful communication that can persuade people and events round to your way
of thinking. You will need to think on your feet but with insight and
wisdom you can find a way to succeed.
For example, you may wish to charm a new suitor romantically or convince a
bank manager that your business is worth backing, or even persuade your
partner or lover that marriage really is a good idea!
The cheeky and irresistible charm of The Magician can work wonders, and
sometimes having the ability to play the odd bluff or to create an
illusion to get a result isn’t always a bad thing if it works out for
everyone in the end.
If faced with tough challenges or obstacles, The Magician is a good omen
that your quick thinking and artful communication skills will enable you
to work around them and stay ahead of any adversaries.
I always feel that The Magician has all the joyful and youthful exuberance
of The Fool but with the added benefit of wisdom from experience. This
card represents the early stages or beginnings of an opportunity or phase
of your life so no result is definite. If, however, you can harness the
confidence and charm of The Magician, you are far more likely to succeed.
The Magician may also represent a man in your readings if you have asked a
question about relationships, and in this case, the card can be a little
difficult to interpret because of the illusionary, magical aspect to it.
The best rule of thumb is, if The Magician is surrounded by positive
cards, then this man could well be charming, fun, great to be around, and
very possibly quite eccentric!!
If, however, it is surrounded by negative cards, take care as he may be a
trickster or con man. This may refer to a possible lover, business
partner, work colleague etc. It basically means be careful who you trust,
as all may not be as it seems.
The Magician is about the magic of possibility and how, with creativity,
enthusiasm and sheer willpower, we can make things happen in our lives.
With initiative and careful insight you can harness your own magic and
have the wisdom to see through illusion.
