The Magician follows The Fool, card 0 and is the first numbered card, number 1, in the Tarot. I've always liked the rich imagery of this card. If you look closely at his face, he's intensely focused. Highly creative, Magician has everything he needs right there at his fingertips, on his table, a cup, pentacle, wand and sword. The cup symbolizes imagination, the sword, intelligence and thought, the pentacle is the physical body and reality, and the wand represents passionate desire. With these tools, he possesses the unique ability to blend Heaven and Earth and stay grounded. Having everything he needs, he lets go of all distractions, further enhancing power and creativity. The Magician doesn't waste time or scatter his energies.
The Magician's ruler is Mercury, and air planet ruling both Gemini and Virgo, the two signs symbolic of thought and the mind. The symbol of infinity above his head, thinking opens portal to the Divine and pursuit of spiritual truth. He's a master of illusion and adept at manifesting and blending. Be careful what you focus upon, lest it manifest in reality. Choose your wishes wisely.
The Magician is also a Healer, a Shaman, and an archetype of "Spirit". Like all Magicians, he creates "magic" all around him, drawing into his life and the lives of others, magical circumstances, and choices. Magician is powerful as he influences the natural World, yet he doesn't seek power for personal gain. He's an inspirational teacher, an "old soul", who eloquently blends spirit and matter, then communicates this wise guidance to others.
