MAJOR ARCANA NUMBER 1
ASTROLOGICAL SIGN or PLANET: ARIES, MERCURY
The Magician card represents success, achievement and manifesting. It is a good omen. He is able to communicate the powers and gifts the universe has to offer. This is a sign to tap into your intuition. The Magician is self-aware and not afraid to act. His great strength gives him the freedom to make choices. He makes things happen and is in control as if by magic. This indicates somebody with great skills, be it yourself or perhaps another individual. This is also a sign that you need to take control of your life. Don’t tolerate those who might have abused you in the past. Dilemmas arise with choice — should he act morally or forsake ethics for personal gain? Depending on the chosen path, he might represent great strife going forward.
In the reversed position, the Magician card can signify weakness, insecurity and a lack of imagination and creativity. You may be becoming manipulative at the expense of others. This is a time to look at your own attitude and motivations. Have you been manipulative? Are you applying yourself to the best of your abilities? Are you deceiving someone? You may also be suffering from self-doubt. You may have a lack of will power and lack of motivation and enthusiasm. Beware of an individual who will take advantage of your disinterested mood and lack of personal direction. Do not part with money for any investments. You could be swindled. This may be an individual who is out to destroy you. Your personal powers may be blocked, perhaps because you are afraid to tap into them. You have become stagnant and bitter.
