It's time to make some magic! What will you create today?
The figure on the card actually forms the glyph for Mercury. And he juggles his tools: With the Wand createth He. With the Cup preserveth He. With the Dagger destroyeth He. With the Coin redeemeth He. Also in there is a style, paperys torch and Winged Egg and that Egg is important for our evolving symbolism in this deck. On this card the egg represents preexistent zero - like the Magus himself - the source of manifestations. It will show up in the other alchemical trumps as we walk further into the deck. ..
Skill, cunning, craft. The Magus is making his world, changing and shaping it according to his Will. That is how powerful he is and you are - you can create your world. Be sure you know exactly what you want though because that is what you are going to get. ..
A quote from the movie What Dreams May Come is perfect for this card: That which you believe becomes your world!
