Meaning

When you are having one of those days where it feels like nothing can go wrong, that you are the king or queen of your world, and that everything you touch turns to gold, the Magician will appear in your Tarot reading. The Magician is all about creating your Destiny. This card bears the message that your talents and your own inner gifts are the keys to your success in the situation at hand. And you have all of the tools that you need right in front of you to ensure that success manifests. This is a card about making something happen and is also directly tied to your instinct and intuition. If you are feeling an urge or a pull to do something, and the Magician card appears, the message of this Major Arcana card is, follow that intuition. It will weave magic for you at this time.

Symbolism

The Magician card is a light-colored card in the 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 Wand for Fire, a Cup for Water, a Pentacle for Earth, and a Sword for Air. 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.
