Tried three times over the last two days to post about this card and, each time, have gotten interrupted by the small of life. There we are. :-) The Magician is a strong will and a strong personality. He is manifestation consciousness (what the hell is that?) and can manipulate circumstances, energies to his advantage and goals.
Graced by positive, he is the energy of bounty, healing, and compassion. Graced by negative, he is the energy of self-absorbed advancement, subversive agenda and indifference.
