Interpretation of the card:
Astrological Sign: Leo/Scorpio ︱ Planet: Sun/Pluto
The image in the card depicts a witch's kitchen with all the necessary equipment for alchemy. The master sorcerer is preparing the Homunculus, an artificial life, using a skull, spell books, and a magical fire. The Magician wears an inverted pentagram on their hat, signifying the alliance with the dark powers and the horned lord of the underworld. The "black sun" can be seen in the blood-red sky as a sign of this alliance.
The meaning of the Magician Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card︱ The problem
WHAT IS THE SUBJECT?
You are under the influence of a magical act. Don't be mistaken about this. Although you may feel like a "victim", it is only your past magic returning to you. You are bound by spiritual shackles and live your life under a false idea of life, draining much of your energy and vitality.
2) As the next card︱Way through the problem
HOW TO DEAL WITH IT?
Your life is trapped in the bubble of an idea, like a Homunculus in a magician's flask. You've invested a lot of energy in becoming this artificial creation, and now it's time to make a sacrifice to release your pent-up energies. Without a sacrifice and the destruction of a part of your imagined world, you can't move forward; you'll just keep spinning in a vicious cycle and becoming more and more depleted. Remember that you only have to shatter one image; what is real is indestructible.
3) as the last card︱Result
WHERE DOES IT LEAD?
You have come to accept your place in the larger universe and understand the limits of your power. By letting go of your delusions of grandeur and recognizing your role as a creature rather than a creator, you can find inner peace and continue your journey guided by true principles. The false, superficial allure of other ideals and aspirations is like a Hollywood facade, but your newfound perspective will allow you to see through them and find fulfillment.
