The Magician is a conduit for a higher power, which commands the entire material world. It may seem like a strange title for a card that holds real power, as the word “magician” tends to conjure in image of an illusionist whose power involves sleight of hand. The limitless power that The Magician holds does come from external sources however it his will that is this cards greatest power. The Magician reminds us that a wish alone will change nothing, but a decision can change everything. Since the powers of transformation are at your command, change your desires into objectives, your thoughts into actions, your goals into achievements. If you have recently met with failure, now you can change that failure into success as easily as the Magician changes fire into water. The only limits you have are those you impose on yourself. The realization that the world is under your control is what inspires this kind of confidence, and with good reason. So The Magician employs you to go out into the world, set your mind to whatever goal you are interested in, and then just stand back and watch as everything falls into place under your command.
The Magician is the union of positive and negative, while The Fool is the potential for positive and negative.
The Fool represents the realization that your world is under your control. He is the unconditioned soul about to come into manifestation for the first time to start learning the lessons of the world. His ignorance of the world can lead him to do things that more experienced people would never imagine. But in these things he can find knowledge and enlightenment. He does not care what others think or say about him, because he knows that what he is doing is right for him. The Fool does not hide himself from the light, because he is the light – the light that shines out of every child before they see the world and are forced to build so many walls and barriers to protect themselves. The Fool stands for new beginnings, new experiences and new choices. With any new experience there is always the risk of failure and the certainty of change. But the Fool has no qualms about taking chances. It is through the first steps that we learn how to walk, and it is through changes that we learn how to live our lives in harmony and peace. The Fool encourages you to delve into the abyss of the unknown, and know that even if you eventually fall to the ground, for a while you will soar and it will be worth it.
