Symbolism

The Magician card is a light colored card in Tarot and the sunny backdrop on this card represents a sunny outlook on the situation at hand in your Tarot reading. Here we see a man at a table, in a magician’s robe, with a number of tools laid out on the table. The tools on the table represent each of the suits of the Tarot, so you will see a Cup, a Pentacle, a Wand, and a Sword. The Magician himself is raising his magic wand and is about to perform some magic! Above his head we see the Infinity symbol, and this is only one of two cards in the deck that show this symbol in this manner. The symbolism of this card then tells us, a sunny outlook is almost inevitable in your situation, and you are the master of your fate. You have all of the tools in front of you at your disposal to wave your magic wand and create your Destiny. With the infinity symbol over your head, know that your Destiny, and the magic you will create to reach it, is directly tied to karma.
