Tarot Card by Card – The Magician

by Theresa Reed on February 17, 2013

Join me each week for “Tarot Card by Card” as we go through each card individually with fresh interpretations and a sucka free approach.  Learn to read tarot in a fun, irreverent, modern way.

The Magician

Keywords: talent, skill, power, magic, control, manifest, tools, mastery, willpower, focus

Attributes:  Mercury

General meaning:  The Magician is the card of talent and power.  You’ve got the mad skillz to accomplish your goals at this time.  It’s time to make the most of your abilities. Know that you have everything you need to manifest whatever it is you have in mind.  Your tools are right at your fingertips.  Proceed with total confidence and find the magic within yourself now.  Met a new person?  Chemistry and pure animal attraction.  Prepare for some hot action.

Reversed:  Not ready for prime time.  You don’t have your shit together at this time.  Better to pull back and wait until you are absolutely ready.  Jump in without the right knowledge and you risk blowing it and looking like a newbie.  Take your time to develop yourself more.  This card can also signal an abuse of power.  Don’t be a dick.

Affirmation:  “I recognize my ability to manifest my goals through the skills I have within me.”

Theme song:  “Magic” by Nick Drake

Journaling prompt: What is your secret (or not so secret) power?  Write about your greatest talents, both recognized and latent.


You got dat wand in the air

Don’t wave it around

Focus dat will

Point yo finger to the ground

You wanna be G

Here’s tha secret sauce:

Own dat shit

Be the mothafucking BOSS
