The Magician Tarot Card

The Magician is a young man whose confidence shines through. Above his head is the symbol of Infinity. This is again represented in the Strength tarot card. Numerically the 8 also represents the number of the Christ energy.

Around his waist, the snake appears to be devouring its own tail. Again, the snake symbolizes eternity as it sheds its own skin to renew itself over and over again. From death, comes life, and so is the circle of life.

In his right hand, the Magician raises his wand toward heaven as his left hand points down to the earth. This allows him to transform spirit into matter, creating his own reality.

With his wand, The Magician bestows grace, virtue and light from Heaven onto the earth communicating the gifts on the spirit to mankind.  On the table in front of him are the symbols of the four tarot suits: Cups, Pentacles, Wands and Swords. Each of these symbols represent the four elements, which are the components of all magic.


When we get this card in a reading we’re  being told that all things are possible within the realm of our existence. The Magician teaches us we can change and transform any negative situation into a positive one. With his tools we can perform the magic we need to create and manifest the things we want in our lives.

When the Magician tarot card is present you have a new beginning with the ability to create abundance. You have the tools and you have the power! The Magician also indicates Spirit on Earth and he acts as the conduit between the physical and spiritual realms. As above, so below.

This can manifest as miracles, coincidences and synchronicity in the earthly plane. Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find. Knock and the door will be opened to you. It is all in the searching.
