Personal power, experience, innovation and ability
THE CARD’S STORY BY: TANYA BOND
To represent The Magician, I picked a deity from ancient Egypt – Thoth, as he was regarded as the master of magic and possessor of secret knowledge and expert in sciences. I have merged the traditional Rider-Waite Magician symbols with a traditional depiction of Thoth.
THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN
Thoth stands, staring into the distance, the symbols of the suits emblazoned on his skin, powerful artifacts in his hand, and an infinity crown resting on his head. Whatever comes his way, he is ready, the power within him to overcome everything. The Magician is here to remind you just how bloody awesome you are. Don’t let fear or worry hold you back. Don’t even let them enter your mind. You have everything you need, all the experience, all the knowledge, all the skill is already within you. Now you need to keep your focus and unlock your confidence. You are the key. You are MORE than enough. You don’t need approval or permission. You can do this.
MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: THOTH
The God of Magic and Writing, as well as the Moon, Thoth is widely considered to be the wisest god of the Ancient Egyptian pantheon. His wisdom was so legendary that Egyptians believed you could learn all the knowledge of the universe from a book he once wrote – the Book of Thoth, and become the most powerful magician in the process…if you could withstand the pain and tragedy that came with it. He is oft en depicted as a man with the head of either an ibis, or a baboon – both of these animals were sacred to him. Th e extraordinary personal power of Thoth, made him the perfect illustration for our Mythical Magician.
