1 – The Magician Tarot Card Meanings – Reversed


The Magician upright has all the tools he need: the wand, the cups, the sword and the pentacle. In the reversed position something or even more is missing. What is missing so you can’t create the desired outcome (yet)? Do you feel a lack of new ideas, passion, creativity or are you dependent on material items?

Reversed the Magician is still skilled but does not use his power in the right way. When the Magician appears reversed, it is best to get back to reality and get clear for yourself what is going on and what your goals are. Make a plan, especially when the Emperor reversed shows up close by. Use the power of the Magician upright instead of reversed.

Stay focused and don’t get misguided and get your self-confidence back. Use your power in a positive way.

In the worst case the Magician reversed can be a cheater, someone who is looking only at his best interest. He uses his power to convince you that his point of view is the right one.

The magician reversed as outcome and advice

  • manipulation
  • not able to manifest
  • untrustworthiness and trickery
  • ground yourself
  • make a planning and set your goals
  • get back to reality
