The Magician is a Major Arcana card and is one of the most exciting and positive cards to receive in a reading.
Everyone loves when the Magician turns up…we see him as the answer to our prayers and that fairy godfather who can wave his magic wand and give us whatever we ask for right now…snap! He can make all of our struggles, negative situations, traffic tickets and circumstances disappear…snap! Just like that! All this while we lazily hit the snooze button, roll over and continue to do…. well, nothing! Sadly, that’s not quite how it works. If it did, none of us would need a diet, or a job!
When we receive this card in a reading, we are being shown that we have the Magician’s powerful energy that carries infinite potential…infinite inspiration…infinite creativity and powerful manifestation ability. We are reminded that all is possible and favorable for us to work our magic now, the key word being “work”.
He is fully aware that he is the conduit of the Divine channeled through him into his physical reality. He fully trusts that his word has the Power to direct the Infinite to manifest through him, to create heaven on earth in our lives. He is the highest potential possible to manifest Spirit into physical form perfectly. His feet are firmly on the ground and he is ready to accept whatever direction Spirit gives him and take focused and direct action to get the ball rolling along to the final destination.
The Magician alludes to that little bit of mystery we all want to see that makes life extra-special and magical. He promises that we too can use his energy to manifest our hearts desires, if we use self-discipline, work in agreement with the universal laws and take action to do the work required. While the Fool that goes before him excitedly says “Hey! That looks like fun! I’d like to give that a shot and see how it goes!” The Magician confidently gives a wink and a smile as he says, “I’ve got this!”
