The Magician Reversed: Yes Or No?

When pulled in reversed position, the Magician generally means ‘no’. It indicates that you may have lost faith in your own abilities over time and have started to stray from the path towards your ultimate desires. It is time to rediscover your talents and start making a plan to optimally benefit from them. 

The Magician in reverse often represents a strong sense of illusion and indecision. Due to feeling a lack of self-confidence, you may find it difficult to know which road to take at this point. 

Now is the time to start rebuilding your confidence by focusing on things that excite and empower you. Whether it’s a creative endeavour that gets your positive mindset flowing or something else; move towards whatever it is that sparks your interest.

Magic happens when you start to truly believe in yourself and your unique talents and abilities. Know that you are unstoppable as long as you deeply believe you got what it takes to make things happen. 

Start by taking small steps to allow your confidence to increase and watch the magic unfold slowly but surely!

The Magician And Love: Yes Or No?

When it comes to love, the Magician means ‘yes’. This tarot card shows up as a sign to let you know that anything is possible. It represents being the creator of your own reality. It encourages to not only focus on manifesting your dream partner but also take concrete practical action steps.

Even though love is something that should naturally flow into your life without forcing it, making sure you’re creating an open and inviting mindset definitely won’t hurt. 

When you focus on the things that generally excite you and bring you joy and fulfilment, love often easily manifests itself into your life. 

Being passionate about anything is a very attractive quality. Focus on yourself and take actionable steps towards activities you feel drawn to as you just unexpectedly may bump into that very special someone.
