The Magician


A man in a white robe with a red jacket stands in front of a table/altar. In his right hand, he holds a wand(?) up towards the sky, and with his left hand, he points to the ground. He has a white headband, and over his head is the infinity symbol. On the table sits a chalice, a pentacle, a sword, and a staff. In the foreground, there are roses, lilies, and foliage. The background is yellow. The table has engravings on it.


“As above, so below” with the person as the conduit of energy/magic.
The magical tools on the table are also the tarot suits.
This tells me in general that using tarot as a tool of magic can help tap into the infinite source of magical energy/creation, and bridge the creative power of the divine with earth.
It’s also important to remember to have balance when using this power.
In a reading, it means to me that the person has the power to do whatever they want, as long as they remember their abilities, and keep a balanced perspective and experience.
