View Full Version : Cosmic Tarot-Magician
Another card i have avoided analyzing, this time a bearding man/woman (the bearded lady anyone?) overseeds a table with teh four suites laid out. cup, sword, wand, and pentacle. A rose and a lotus are inteh lower left and righ thand corners. The figure has a headband with the infinity symbol, from there a glowing triangle between teh forehead and the two eyes leading to raysof enlightenment flowing out from the eyes. Simple, but cosmic, calm but ready for action.
I see the infinity symbol as a never-ending source of ideas & concepts from a Higher Power; as long as you keep an open mind all things are possible. The Magician can physically manifest those things which he sees in his head, allowing him to change whatever he wants to in his life with Will, confidence (wands), intelligence (swords), faith and good intentions (cups). I say good intentions because the Magician can also develop some evil ideas to manipulate people/situations, which I see in the reversed interpretation as black magic (depending on surrounding cards).
He is all blue, representing knowledge, power, integrity, and seriousness. The band and infinity symbol is yellow, representing a stimulation in mental activity. It all begins with a thought--then the faith to TRUST that leadership and intuition--which leads to action--and we end up with whatever we desire (mainly, pentacles!)
The Magician builds his world out of the four elements (symbolized by the four tools on the table) but he does it by the power of his mind. A triangle, symbol of creative manifestation, is on his brow. At the tip is an infinity sign that seems to spark and glow. All things originate in his mind.
The bright beams coming from the Magician's eyes show his active forcefulness. His activity in the areas of life symbolized by the four tools has an impact on the world around him.
So the card is saying to look at how you are building your world. It is about being skilled with the sword, the cup, the wand and the pentacle and also about recognizing the creative role that your thoughts play.
The lily and the rose? For me right now they stand for day and night, the sun and the moon, purity and sensuality, loving others and loving yourself. Let your gaze encompass both flowers. There is alot in this deck about balance.
