Card meaning:

The Magician is very skillful. He can amuse and entertain. He is very smart, attracts attention, and is a born entertainer. He does not let anyone fool him, because he knows a lot of tricks himself. However, he had to develop his talent for a long time, because without endurance and exercise he would have remained only a gifted disciple and would not have reached the mastery.

The Magician is primarily a symbol of skillful communication. This card gives you courage, strength and confidence in any serious conversation. With the Magician, you will easily manage complex family disputes, difficult business meetings, job interviews, unpleasant phone calls, or warranty complaint for broken-down iron.

This card will also equip you with sense of humor and readiness even in casual conversation. This way the Magician will be your perfect assistant at social events of all kind. You can become the star of a party, gain the admiration of your colleagues, or just make a news vendor laugh. You will choose the right words at the right time with this card. Such talent is very useful whenever you want to attract the attention of your counterpart, whether during an ordinary encounter at the work's coffee machine or at a long romantic dinner.

Does someone make a very charming impression on you? Maybe the Magician is behind that all. However, be cautious that someone does not try to fool you.
