The Magician – Tarot Meanings Deep Dive!

Welcome to part 2 of my 22 part Tarot Meanings Deep Dive series – each week we explore ONE major arcana card and uncover it’s secrets, symbols and messages.

Today we’re diving into The Magician – sexy, sneaky, seductive and powerful, he has a wealth of wisdom to share with us!

Have your pen and notebook handy, grab a cup of tea and settle in….


Manifesting, making it happen on the physical level, director of ideas & energy, conduit between physical and energetic worlds, illusion and trickery.


Hand positions (one pointing up, one down), infinity loop above head & ouroboros (snake biting it’s own tail), cup, wand, pentacle and sword on table.

The Darkside of The Magician

Illusion & trickery, dark seduction – think cult leaders, deceitful politicians, pyramid schemes and dishonest advertising.

1. Manifesting

The Magician is a master at creating things out of thin air and making it happen! He knows how to tap into the world of inspiration and ideas AND bring those ideas into physical form. His secret is having his words, thoughts, energy, feelings and actions all in alignment with his goal.

Journalling questions:

♥ How good are you at manifesting (on purpose)?

♥ Think of something you tried to manifest, but couldn’t (and something you DID manifest) – differences?

♥ Think of something you want to manifest – are your emotions, actions, thoughts and energy all in alignment with your goal?

2. Direction

The Magician is like a conductor who directs energy and ideas to where they need to go. His message is that you are powerful and how you choose to direct the forces in your life determines the direction you go in.

Journalling questions:

♥ Do you see yourself as the director of your life? Are you in the drivers seat? (you may find you’re in the drivers seat in some areas, but not others)

♥ What can you do TODAY to step into your power more fully? (example: make a list, set a goal, get organized, take action)

3. Illusion & Trickery

The dark side of The Magician is that he can be a real trickster and master at creating seductive illusions that threaten to re-direct your energy and sap your power.

Journalling questions:

♥ What illusions have you fallen for? (example: pyramid schemes, self help gurus, fuck boys, advertising)

I was once convinced by a very convincing sales woman that a package of bath salts would “change my life!” and “create massive shift”. They did not. Oh well. At least it was just bath salts and not a cult.

The Wisdom of The Magician

The Wisdom of The Magician is that you are a conduit for energy and ideas whether you realize it or not. Your power lies in your ability to be intentional and in alignment with your mind, heart, body and spirit.

The Fool – Tarot Meanings Deep Dive!

Welcome to my brand new Tarot Meanings Deep Dive series! Each week I’ll be taking you on a Tarot journey into ONE major arcana card.

Join me as I dive into The Fool to reveal his secrets, wisdom, dark side and most importantly – what he’s trying to tell you about YOUR life!

Have your pen and notebook handy, grab yourself a bevy and get comfy….


New beginnings, adventure, lust for life, fresh start, trust, risk, optimism, possibilities yet undiscovered


0, sun, cliff edge, head up, small pack on a stick

The Darkside of The Fool

Too trusting, too risky, naively optimistic, foolish, lacking awareness.

1. New Beginnings

The Fool is all about new beginnings and fresh starts! When he appears in a reading, it’s to remind you to look for opportunities for learning, adventure and new experiences. Each day is a chance for a fresh start!

Journalling questions:

♥ Think of a time in your life when you experienced a new beginning or fresh start…

♥ Are there any opportunities right NOW to try something new?

2. Risk & Adventure

The Fool encourages you to get outside your comfort zone, take a risk (symbol: cliff edge) and embrace adventure! It’s important to pack light when making a fresh start (symbol: tiny bag on stick).

Journalling questions:

♥ What is your relationship to risk taking in your life?

♥ How often do you go outside your comfort zone? And how far?

♥ What is something you’ve been wanting to try? What mini-risk can you take?

3. Trust & Optimism

The Fool advises you to cultivate trust and optimism – the secret ingredient to a life filled with adventure, growth, learning and new experiences! The sun, along with The Fool’s head tilted upward, symbolizes optimism and looking on the bright side.

Journalling questions:

♥ What is your relationship with optimism like? What helps you cultivate optimism?

♥ How true is this statement: “I trust in life”?

When I sat down to journal about this, I realized that anytime I feel anxious about something, it’s because I don’t trust in life. But how does one cultivate trust in a world where bad things do happen and “staying safe” 100% of the time isn’t possible?

The epiphany I had is that trust in life means trusting that in the end, all will be well – my soul is eternal, I am more than my body and everything serves a purpose in the end, once the big picture is seen. Embracing this perspective on things has allowed me to shed some of my fear and inhibitions.

The Wisdom of The Fool

The Wisdom of The Fool is to always look for possibilities, see the opportunity for adventure, take a risk every now and then and trust that life takes you where you need to be.

Tell me your thoughts!

Since making this video, I’ve used this deck a few times in mini-readings for myself (and for next week’s weekly forecast reading) and I’m finding it a joy to read with!

Cards are beautiful, easy to understand and always direct and clear. Whether I ask a simple question or want to explore a more complex topic, these cards both invite contemplation and provide clear insights.

This deck is perfect for beginners since they keywords are written on the cards, but experienced readers will also love it – I have a feeling I’ll be reaching for the Oracle L’Absolu quite a bit in the future ♥

Unboxing The Awakened Soul Oracle

Join me as I unbox The Awakened Soul Oracle – created by Ethony Dawn with art by Danielle Mulligan….

Purchase this deck here:

I’ve been using this deck for a few weeks now, particularly for emotionally charged, self-readings. I’ve found it to be freakishly accurate in reflecting back what is going on in my life, but it’s also been amazingly helpful in calming me down and helping me re-centre myself.

I have a big collection of oracle decks – some pretty, some very readable and some challenging and not all that useful – but this deck is in a category of it’s own…

The Awakened Soul Oracle Deck is gorgeous, readable and helpful but it’s also a deck that gives me goosebumps and tinglies when I read with it and an eerie sense that I am speaking directly to my soul/higher self.

Unboxing the Modern Love Tarot

Join me as I unbox the Modern Love Tarot – created by Ethony Dawn and art by Lucy Morningstar.

This deck is everything I look for in a Tarot deck – bright colours, matte finish cards, relatable scenes & characters and good vibes….

At the end of this unboxing video, I interview the deck and ask it:

1) What kind of a deck are you?
2) What kind of issues do you like to read about?
3) What do you look for in a reader?

The true test of a deck is how it reads for a variety of readings. I’m happy to say that after doing several readings (for myself and others), this deck has been consistently readable and has left me feeling clear and comforted afterwards. It’s uplifting and yet down to earth, with each card being easy to connect with and dive into.

This deck is now going into my rotation of go-to Tarot decks!

You can purchase this deck here:
