The Magician: Meanings and Combinations

Meaning (upright):Intelligence, creativity , ability to bring new things to life  (at a less deep level than other cards, like the Devil) . Making the most of a bad situation. Ability to charm, seduce and convince in order to get results, not just to gain control over others. Resourcefulness, adaptation to change. Getting down to work, making projects come true.

Meaning (reversed): A manipulative person, capable of using tricks and lies in order to get what he/she  wants. Stealing ideas from others. False prophet, medium or reader. Charlatan. Using an ability inadequately, wasting time or effort.

Some card combinations:

Next to the Tower or the Devil: Very dangerous and manipulative person.

Next to the Lovers: It can mean an unfaithful lover or just a very charming suitor who could not mean all he/she says.

Next to the High Priestess: Wise woman who finds an exciting lover that makes her feel complete. If the Magician is reversed, this lover could be lying to her.

Next to the Hanged Man: Person who gives the best of himself/herself to a cause, and can even border on fanaticism.
