THE MAGICIAN – THE ALCHEMIST
The Magician teaches us about the role of communication, of developing our own ability to make ourselves clearly understood. We will develop through exercising our own minds and using reason. He is there to remind us to be on our guard against blind faith, or even overwhelmingly strong emotions. Study, and the training of our minds will give us the chance to develop our faculties in a systematic manner.
He shows us how to communicate, how to sell our ideas, how to develop abilities and craftsmanship, how to solve our problems, how to juggle with different things at the same time. Today’s modern Magicians are in the world of media, press, advertising, salesmanship, etc. Indeed, they can be very persuasive with words or images in selling you anything!
The Magician, is the alchemist, he can turn a bucket of dirty water into gold, he knows how to turn any seemingly bad situation into good. He is more than an illusionist, he has the ability to change anything into something else. He can even change himself into something different if it serves his purpose.
The Magician, teaches us to make more of ourselves, he asks us to look within, can we transform spiritually into a better person, or someone more professional and hard working, can we evolve into the person we are supposed to be. Life can be very difficult for many, and if you want more you often have to think outside of the box, you have to pull a few magic doves from out of your hat to change a situation.
The mind can be very powerful and at the same time it can become your worst enemy. If we have control over the mind, anything is possible. The Magician shows us how to take control, he is positive and powerful, he does not doubt his own abilities. He knows exactly what will happen, if he takes his magic wand out from his pocket, he knows he can make anything appear. Symbolically he is asking you to do the same. Plant positive seeds within your mind and you shall create magic, just as he does.
