I. The Magician: The traditional Magician stands at an altar which is covered in various tools, including instruments the pentacle, wands, cups, and swords, which are the four suits of the Minor Arcana. He has a wand raised towards heaven, one hand pointed towards the earth, his body making the shape of a lightning bolt, showing his role as a conduit between divinity and reality. Occultist and tarot deck creator A.E. Waite said, “it is decent of grace, virtue, and light drawn from things above and derived from things below.” The Magician is in a position to begin a ritual: all he needs to do is speak the words of his spell. The Magician reminds you that you are all full of magic. Humans are beings that connect Great Spirit to Mother Earth, and in such a divine position, we can create what we imagine and manifest what we desire. He heralds a time of creativity, communication, transformation, and awareness in your own personal brand of mojo. Common meanings: study, communication, written and spoken word, focus, determination, channelling, using time wisely, law of attraction, working towards completing projects, ambition, taking action.
