Magician Tarot Card Meanings
The Magician suspends all the elements in the air by focusing the power and will of his mind. Each element represents the four suits of the minor arcana and we can see we’re in the presence of a master as The Magician manifests energy into matter.
This is the card of transferring thoughts into action, a time to use your initiative and apply concentrated will to manifest your aims. The four elements he offers before you indicate you already have all the tools you need within your skills and ability, but now you must have confidence in yourself to make it happen.
When The Magician appears in your Tarot reading it’s time step up to the plate, you have the potential to succeed but you must believe in yourself and your ability. Whilst The Fool may hold infinite possibilities The Magician reminds you of what you can achieve when you take that potential and make it manifest.
The Magician Tarot card informs you of the great power you inwardly possess and encourages you to actively manifest your intentions. This is a powerful card if you take the energy he offers and work with it. You will need to apply concentrated thought and focus your will; think creatively, use all the resources at your disposal, and you can achieve your goals. It may also suggest good communication skills in writing and speaking.
Traditionally The Magician was sometimes associated with a cunning trickster, or a smooth talking conman, and this may be the case if the card is badly aspected or reversed. As a reversed card it can also indicate misuse of ability, lack of confidence and will power.
