A word from the creator of the Linestrider tarot:
Focus, focus, goal achievement, learning, study, communication, transformation.
The magician is a power card associated with consciousness, with action is with creation. It can appear when you have a particular idea or a specific goal that you are working on. The Magician is related to the Mercurius of alchemy and the number 1. It is a card that indicates the beginning. To me, the Magician symbolizes a simian character, intelligent and able to accomplish things, make tools and discover new ways of doing things. It sits between the spiritual world and humanity. In one hand, he holds a staff raised to the sky; his other hand makes a gesture of blessing towards the earth. Above his head is the symbol of eternity.
This card often appears when you need to harness the power of the universe to achieve your goals. The magician is a good omen when you have a special wish, start a project that requires creativity, or need to make some transformation. It is a great card for meditation if you need to use all of the elements for help and gain wisdom.
In a reading, the Magician might point to a time in your life when things will fall into place, or your efforts will pay off and you will feel capable of achieving your goals; that is the full potential of the Magician.
Conversely, the Magician may indicate that something is blocking your creative energy or that your power is directed towards something futile or counterproductive regarding your goals and growth. The Magician is associated with the planet Mercury and with it evokes skill, logic and intellect. "
