1 – The Magician:
Keywords: Force of will, raw power, creative energy, existence, being capable, tapping into your personal power, awareness
The Magician holds one hand toward the heavens and the other pointed down to the earth. I have heard it said that this is a reference to the phrase “As above, so below”, or even “On earth, as it is in Heaven”. Whether or not these familiar phrases were intentionally being made part of his energy or not, one thing is clear. The Magician knows how to tap into the energies around him and make things happen. Before him are the symbols of each suit… Pentacles, Cups, Swords, Wands. To me, this says he has everything he needs to take action and bring his dreams to fruition. He is equipped. He has what it takes. The Magician is capable of intensely focusing his will on what he wishes to learn or attain. This makes him extremely powerful. He literally can do anything he sets his mind to. The Magician is assigned the numeral 1… from the empty slate of the Fool, the Magician represents the coming into being of something. What was previously only an idea can become reality.
