The Tarot Magician is performing a spell. He holds a wand high in his right hand and points to the sky to summon magical powers, while the index finger of his left hand points to the earth, symbolizing that he is the bridge that unites heaven and earth and dominates everything on earth. On the table in front of him rests the Wand (Fire Element), the Cup (Water Element), the Sword (Wind Element) and the Pentacle (Earth Element), representing both the 4 decks of the Minor Arcana Tarot and the symbol of the 4 elements. The red robe he wears represents passion and initiative, and the white profane suit represents inner purity and wisdom. He has endless creative power and potential, but needs the assurance of a strong will and purity of heart. His belt is a serpent, which under this circumstance does not represent evil, but symbolizes wisdom and inspiration. The figure of eight lying above his head represents the infinite power of his magic. The pattern of this tarot card is surrounded by flowers, red roses symbolizing passion and white lilies symbolizing wisdom. The bright yellow background foreshadows future success. The Magician is numbered 1 in the Tarot, signifying the beginning of everything, and also plays the role of communication between the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana.
The Magician receives energy from the sky (inspiration) and channels this energy into something concrete and real – the land. That means he translates ideas into something that we can see and touch. He uses his willpower to produce concrete results. He is not pushed by the trends of life, but acts for himself in these trends and makes concrete achievements.
