Good morning everyone. Time to move on to The Magician Number 1 in the Major Arcana.
Just to recap: The Major Arcana represent the forces of the universe at work in your life. The more of these you have in a spread the stronger the spiritual lessons of the events you are experiencing and the more fate and destiny is working in your life to bring those experiences to you. A high number of minor cards or court cards in a spread tends to indicate that the outcome of situations is largely determined by the self determining actions and initiates of the people around you. In other words your in control.
The Magician, sometimes called the Juggler is number 1 in the Major Arcana card in most traditional Tarot decks.
The image shows a man standing in front of his powerful altar with tools that represent all four directions, the four elements earth, air fire and water and of course the four suits pentacles, wands, swords and cups..
When the Magician appears the universe is asking you to tap into your talents, capabilities and resources which will help you to succeed with any project. You need to tap into this energy as you work with all at your disposal to bring change, completion and success. Often they may also represent someone who is very influential, often working in sales or marketing. This person is a great communicator.
