The next card in the major arcana is the Magician. The magician is an archetype famous in all the major traditions of the world. In the ancient world, they held very high positions and authority in the kingdom, because of the perplexing abilities that they possessed. More often than not people followed them out of fear. The positive and negative attributes of this archetype have been made famous by many folklores and fairy tales.
Visual Representations in the card
The Magician is depicted as a male figure standing tall and proud emanating a commanding appearance. The magician points a crystal wand towards the heavens and the other hand to the earth depicting his ability to channel information between the two realms.
The motive of the magician is revealed by the purity of the gown that he wears. His power and passion are represented by the red garments. The uroboros on his belt and the infinity above his head represent the cyclic nature of the universe. The red and the white lilies represent his creative abilities and the skill to manifest them. On the table are the elements of the tarot. The Wand, Cup, Sword, and Pentacle. These are all the tools one requires in his/her journey. The Magician possesses the wisdom to use them in appropriate ways and in the right balance.
