Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning
“The Magician is the soul who has already awakened to the higher truths. In my depiction he appears as a mature man, stoic and focused, covered by a dark hood and mantle, while sea anemone tentacles almost “crown” his head. At the command of his hands two fish seem to move in opposite directions. The glyphs of the four elements appear on each side. The association of the Tarot theme with the sea make it a perfect foundation for the symbolism of the card. “Water” is the element of intuition, of spirituality and rebirth. He has his eyes fixed on the “above”, or the higher planes. The man who has already dominated his potential and can manipulate the elements.”
The Magus stands in concentration, tentacles of an unseen sea creature springing up around his head…not yet surrounding him or pulling him down to the depths. Do they mean to harm him? His hands rise up, fish and the four elemental symbols spring forth as he draws upon his own power and magic to prepare himself…either to defend against an unseen foe, or to welcome a yet unknown friend. All the power of the world, all the power of the elements are within his will, to draw upon as he wishes and needs, to achieve everything he desires.
This card is a welcome sight in any reading, predicting success in your endeavors, and encouraging you to achieve your goals by harnessing your own personal power, and using the skills and knowledge that you already have.
