The Magician

Full of confidence in my abilities and my creation, I am gratefully accept what I have been given.

Great power radiates from this card. All of the symbols of the tarot – the sword, the cup, the wand and the pentacle – lie on the table and can be used. At the same time these objects are also symbols for the four elements: water, earth, fire and air.

Above the magician’s head we see a horizontal eight, the symbol for eternity and of eternal recurrences.

The magician is the “creator” in tarot, someone who is fully aware of their capabilities, who realises their intuition and who has their feet on the ground. He points upwards with one hand and downwards with the other. In doing so he alludes to a fundamental spiritual law: above as it is below, within and it is without.

Everything that you encounter externally is merely a reflection of the internal. A truth which we are happy to accept in the case of positive occurrences.
