Totally Optional Prompt: The Magician

"The Magician" from the Rider-Waite Tarot.

He represents the potential of a new adventure, chosen or thrust upon one. A journey undertaken in daylight, in the Enlightenment Tradition. He brings things out of the darkness into the light. He explores the world in order to master it. He is solar consciousness.

He embodies the lesson of “as above, so below.” The lesson that mastery in one realm may bring mastery in another. He also warns of the danger of applying lessons from one realm to another.

He transcends duality. He’s learned the fundamental elements of the universe, represented by emblems of the four suits of the tarot already broken apart and lying on the table before him.

I like to do two tellings, one with the Dali tarot and one with Crowley tarot and then let them argue between themselves. Hahahahahahahahahah!!!!!!
