In a Tarot reading, the Magician is one of the most difficult cards to read as feelings for someone.
The Magician is generally all about having “control over yourself,” or control over one’s life.
That being said, this meaning can also be interpreted similarly when we discuss our feelings in a Tarot reading.
The Magician as Basic Feelings
Generally speaking, if the person opens the Magician in a reading about feelings, it can mean several things.
In an upright hand, the Magician is a good omen when referring to feelings, as it is a very straightforward card.
It represents a confident, self-assured and resourceful person that is very much in control of every aspect of their life.
On the other hand, when he’s opened in a reversed reading, the Magician can also imply that the one receiving a reading is insecure, lacks control and confidence in their life, making them confused and unsure of what they want in life.
The Magician as Feelings towards a Future Partner
In an upright position, the Magician can signify that you might soon achieve an emotional or intellectual relationship with someone great for you.
The reading depends on whether or not the person receiving it is looking for a romantic partner or not.
If they are, this card in the upright hand is definitely a great sign, as it symbolizes that the person is definitely on the right track in finding ‘the one’.
As the Magician represents a strong person who’s in charge of their life, it also means that you might find a person who you can ‘mold’ into your perfect significant other.
On the other hand, if the person is not looking for a romantic partner, this card is still a good omen.
You might meet someone soon and think to yourself, “Here is someone I can utilize in my life”, whether that be in business and career growth or any other way.
The Magician as Feelings if You’re Single
The Magician indicates that you are ready to embark on a new adventure in some aspect of your life.
You are confident, have all of the necessary materials or knowledge, and are ready to make the finest illusory trick a magician can do.
It highly encourages self-assurance in one’s abilities, and listening to one’s guts when it comes to finding a new partner.
However, the card also implies that everything depends on your autonomous activities, so do not wait for the perfect person.
The Magician, in general, represents something new that is about to enter your life.
So don’t put it off any longer; start acting and meeting new people!
Magician as Feelings in a Relationship
The Magician’s sentiments indicate that the person you’re currently in a relationship with will take good care of you.
Your partner organizes their life around you and makes future plans.
At the same time, you might not feel like your relationship is at a good level, because your partner’s intelligence and devotion to their goals take precedence over their emotions, resulting in them not showing affection as much as you’d like.
But not to worry, the Magician says the situation is still quite advantageous to you.
If you’re feeling like there’s a lack of emotion from your partner, a little communication goes a long way!
The Reversed Magician as Feelings in a Relationship
The reversed Magician might represent emotions of insecurity or even lack of confidence, feelings of loss of control.
This can also be interpreted as a bad omen in a love reading.
Perhaps the partner you once thought cared for you has grown to be arrogant and resentful towards you.
The Magician in reverse represents a toxic person around you, a person whose only intent is to purposefully hurt you.
If the person is in any kind of an unhappy or even dangerous relationship, the Magician offers guidance on how to build confidence and take control over the situation.
Does Your Ex Still Have Feelings for You?
In an upright reading, seeing the Magician can also signify that your partner from the past still has strong feelings for you!
And as assertive as he is, the Magician always urges the person to not sit around and wait for things to magically happen, but rather act upon them and take the control of every situation.
So, if you’re still not over your breakup, it might be a good time to see your ex partner and discuss everything.
The Reversed Magician as Your Ex’s Feelings
According to the Magician reversed, the card suggests that your ex partner is very occupied in his current life, and he has definitely moved on.
He is relishing the new things and fresh starts that are entering his life, which is also what the Magician suggests you do.
He signifies a Lack of Confidence
The Magician is all about the power of taking the control of one’s life and starting new things, whether it be a business, relationship or a new sport.
The Magician’s sole responsibility is to provide you with an idea—a starting point.
And maybe you’ll take it from there…or maybe not.
His goal is to enlighten, entertain, and make an impression before moving on.
They’re thrilling, just like ideas, but ideas must be worked on and made real before they can have depth and substance.
If you’ve had a business idea for quite some time but lack the resources and confidence to actually fulfill your goals, this is a good omen to jump on it, and fulfill your dreams one step at a time.
For example, if the person is in love with cooking, but insecure about their own cooking skills, the Magician represents a good time to try out a new recipe, maybe watch a new cooking show and take the matter in their hands, instead of wishfully thinking about it.
No matter how small the first step is, do it!
The Magician as Feelings: Reversed Meaning
On one level, The Magician Reversed indicates that you are contemplating what you want to materialize but have not yet taken action.
You’re not sure whether you have what you need and you’re not sure how to make it happen.
If you focus on what you want to materialize, the Universe will figure out how to make it happen. Maintain your intuition and pay attention to chances when they present themselves.
These are like little breadcrumbs that will lead you closer to your destination.
At its worst, The Magician Reversed represents greed, manipulation, and deception.
You may be an expert at manifesting, but if you are disconnected from your Higher Self, you may only do it for selfish gain and at the detriment of others.
You may unwittingly fall into this trap at times.
If your goals aren’t being reached or something feels odd, pay attention to it and ask yourself if you’re working for the greater good or just for yourself.
