[ Q ] Tarot Impersonation - The Magician

The Magician
from "BOOKS OF MAGIC" (Mercury)


The Magician

Manifestation through will. Imagination, concentration, action. Spirit and Matter united.

A young man raises a doubly terminated wand in his right hand. The wand is held vertically, a tool for the unification of heaven and earth. His left index finger grounds this duality into creation drawing from the original chaos to bring into being the flowers of creation. His aura is shown as the horizontal figure eight, symbol of eternity, while about his waist is wrapped the serpen-cinture, the serpent devouring its own tail, another symbol of eternity. In front of him are the creator/magicians tools, wands, cups, swords and pentacles, symbolizing fire, water, air and earth.


Вариантов там не так много, но воплощение самой идеи использовать арканы таро как архетипы, которые бы применялись для определения типов личности, я ищу уже давно, и это первая такая находка. Наверное, есть где-то ещё.
