The Magician tarot card shows a male figure in his element. He has each of the four suits present; cups, wands, swords, and pentacles. He needs all of these to bring about what he wants. The optimistic yellow background illuminates his bright red coat. There are flowers bordering the picture which represent new opportunities blossoming all around. With the infinity symbol above The Magician it's clear the possibilities are limitless.
The Magician Tarot Card Meanings- Manifestation, creative beginnings, totality, ultimate success, and powerful actions.
The overall meaning when The Magician comes up is that it’s time to take the reins. You’ve got control over anything and everything you want. If you’ve been worrying about how far you can go or how much power you can attain, this card tells you that the answer is as much as you want... and more. The time for self-doubt is over. Take what you want, make what you want, be who you want.
Love and Relationships- You need to be clear about what you want. Whether you are with someone or looking for someone being absolutely clear will not only help move things along faster for you, it’ll reveal to you exactly what you need to do. Don’t wait for the perfect moment. Make the perfect moment happen.
Money and Career- Going along with the theme of making your own opportunities, apply the same idea to your career and finances. Money is energy. What you put into it is what you’ll get out of it. Focus on ideas and jobs that align with your natural talents instead of what you think will earn the biggest paycheck. The Magician utilizes their talent of manifestation to gain their financial dreams.
Health and Wellness- This card appears in a wellness reading when you want to take some control over your own health. Of course we can refine our daily practices to put ourselves in the healthiest position, but The Magician reminds us that an extra push to change habits is in our control.
Spirituality- When you’re about to experience an awakening, or you need a reminder of your spiritual gifts, The Magician will appear with his tools of optimism and limitless ability. Take the card as a note that you always were, always have been, and always will be, in control.
The Magician Tarot Card Meanings Reversed- Stalled potential, trouble manifesting, a disconnect from your abilities, and slow energy.
When The Magician is reversed it means things have gotten out of your control. You have difficulty manifesting and you’re missing new opportunities. The energy around you has slowed down significantly. When this card comes out pay attention to your potential. Has anything changed in your environment that would push you off track? Is there anything you’ve lost from your daily routine that is affecting your health? Examine what has stopped you because The Magician reversed is telling you to stop and pay attention.
Love and Relationships- In a relationship reading The Magician reversed means communication is not good. It’s a sign to step back and consider why things have taken a turn. Slow down and listen to each other.
Money and Career- Upright, money is coming to you whether you like it or not. Reversed however, money doesn’t have a clear path to get to you. Look at the other cards surrounding this card in your reading to find the symptom for your financial issues.
Health and Wellness- Unfortunately, The Magician tarot card reversed in a health reading shows that some things are out of your hands. In this case, it’s best to consult a healthcare professional. This can also mean that you have not been taking the most care you can with yourself mentally. Your mental health is just as important as your bodily health. If your question is along those lines this means that you need to seek outside help rather than looking inward.
Spirituality- Drawing a reverse on any spiritual question means that you have a disconnect from yourself. Your inner voice is screaming at you to listen. Take some time and slow your roll so that your voice can catch up with you. Active rest is best in this case. We can hear ourselves much better when we make the decision to listen for what we have to say.
