The Magican

“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…”

Hermes Trismegistus

The Magician card is the 1st card in the Major Arcana. It comes directly after the carefree Fool and before the intuitive High Priestess. The Magician is an active and masculine card. In this particular deck, I am using here, it is night-time bring a casting a darker pall on the usual more upbeat version of the card.


Every deck you use in Tarot will have a different perspective on the card but you as the reader are always the constant. So, a quick reminder to always look at each card with a fresh eye and don't always revert to your usual keywords. Always see what you are drawn to in the card.
