Number 1, The Magician

The Magician shows us a Pixie with one hand above them, holding a wand and the other hand blow producing magic. The wand is harnessing power while the other is expelling it. This symbolizes yin and yang. Darkness and light, good and evil, negative and positive. The Magician themselves symbolize as the mediator. The thing that connects the two forces together to create balance.
The Magician represents pure willpower. They draw from the energy of all 4 elements. The Magician is here to remind you that you are powerful. You can create the life you desire. Take this card as a sign that it is time to pursue your dreams without hesitation. We are all capable of great things, and the Magician is here to help you with just that. Tap into their power to create what you desire most in life.

Reverse:

Upright:

Blocks in communication, Confusion, Lack in energy, Illusion, Manipulation

Card in Reverse:

The Magician in reverse can suggest illusion. Instead maintaining balance, the Magician turns into one of trickery and deception. There may be someone in your life right now that does not have the best of intentions for you. Someone might try and manipulate you in an act of selfishness.
Another meaning the Magician has in reverse is confusion. You may be feeling a bit unsure of things, leaving you feeling down and slow. Perhaps instead of a person playing tricks on you, it's you that's doing it to yourself. Are the negative things you're thinking really true, or are they just an illusion?

Upright: If you are currently searching for love, the Magician is suggesting you create some new opportunities for yourself to find love! Keep an eye out for any trickery from potential love interests.
Creativity, desire and determination are all very attractive traits that will help you be successful in love. These are all important things to have when attracting a partner or when keeping a life-long relationship.

Reversed: Not everything may be as it seems... When getting to know someone new, make sure that they are not playing any tricks on you. They may seem like the perfect mate, but be cautious when moving forward. Sometimes we don't always present our authentic selves in the beginning of a relationship.
Alternatively, the Magician can suggest that you may be experiencing a lack of willpower and/or confidence when it comes to love. You may be feeling insecure and are having trouble manifesting what you truly want in a relationship. It's okay to feel this way. Maybe right now it's best to take some time to work on yourself before entering a relationship.

Upright: It looks like there either are or could soon be many opportunities presenting themselves to you in the work place. Your willpower is high and you are currently manifesting all you desire when it comes to your career. The Magician tells us that you have what it takes to pursue whatever it is you wish.

Reversed: The Magician asks, are you putting your talents to good use? You may currently be working at a job that isn't fulfilling to you. Perhaps there are some new job opportunities you are interested in that better align with your skills, but you're feeling afraid to make the change. Are you doubts grounded in reality? Or are they tricks your mind is playing on you?
Alternatively, this card can suggest that someone in the workplace has a hidden agenda. Be cautious when doing business with people you don't know, for they may be trying to take advantage of you.
