In tarot reading, the Magician teaches you about the power of manifestation.
Perhaps one of the most powerful cards in the tarot deck is the Magician tarot card. In tarot reading, the Magician is the card of manifestation. His appearance always indicates that you have the ability to create the reality you want. He reminds you that through a direct connection with the Divine, you can use the creative force of the Universe to make powerful changes in your life.
The Magician tarot card indicates that you can be in control of your own destiny. In this regard, you can begin to take charge of your own life through your intentions and creative energy. Most tarot decks depict the Magician standing behind a table with four tools: the sword, pentacle, cup and wand. These represent the four elements: Earth, Fire, Air and Water. These elements are tools for the Magician. He has learned how to master their power to achieve his objectives. Symbolically, these represent the tools within yourself.
In older decks, the Magician tarot card was depicted as a juggler. His tools were masked as a means to remind us that although these tools may be hidden, they are still available to us. We simply must have the willingness to discover them within ourselves. They are an inherent part of our natures. They are a reminder that we have the power to truly achieve the things we desire should we put are own skills to use.
The Magician card represents the concept of mastery. This is a mastery over our inner strengths and abilities. The Magician represents an individual that has learned how to utilize his skills to take charge of his own life. He often indicates the need to channel your inner resources into direct action. He also encourages you to act independently and comes to terms with the fact that you, alone, have the power to carve your own path in the world.
Whenever the Magician appears in a tarot reading, the concept of destiny comes into play. This is the time to focus on the things you want and to take the necessary steps to bring them to fruition. Make a list of goals. Then ask yourself how you might achieve them. Magic doesn’t always happen overnight. More often then not, it is a process that happens by diligently focusing on your objective and making the right decisions in your actions.
