church of tarot: the magician


The magician card is one of the major arcana cards. The major arcana can be told as a story beginning with the fool, or major arcana card #0. The fool sets out on his journey and first meets the magician (today’s card, also #1) and the High Priestess (card #2). The Magician and the High Priestess represent the great balancing forces that make up the percieved world. The magician represents skill, diplomacy, address, sickness, pain, loss, disaster, self confidence, and will.

Some questions to consider in relation to the Magician card might be: Are you having difficulty focusing your attention? Are you underestimating your ability to learn new things? Are you aware of your higher self coming through your personality?
