    The Reversed Magician in a time-based position

    Past – The magician reversed in the past position represents a past opportunity where you did not achieve what you wanted. You may have come second in a competition, or let a big opportunity go to waste. At the time you probably thought of it as a big failure, but you might be coming to terms with it as something to learn from.

    Present – The card in the present position might represent how you’re feeling towards your life as a whole or a particular aspect. Even though it’s reversed, The Magician tarot still represents the general structure of the universe; higher things are representative of lower, and low of higher. You might be feeling stuck in a rut; unable to find the correct path to travel on, almost like you’ve left the fast lane and you’re stuck on the side.

    Future – The tarot card in the future position suggests a future on uncertainty. The magician understands, but reversed, he is either too focused, or without motivation. Are you following the right path? Life can change dramatically in an instant.

    The Reversed Magician in regards to life issues

    Work / Education – The magician reversed in regards to Work strongly suggests you are on the wrong path. This isn’t for you. If you are studying, are you on the right path for a career you want? Sometimes, especially when we have a passion, we try to turn it into a career.  This can completely kill what we enjoyed about the passion and leave us feeling helpless and without focus. Look into other careers to pursue if you are unhappy. The idea here is that there is an aspect that is wrong, but that doesn’t mean you can’t change it. If you are happy at work but dislike one thing about it, investigate ways to change that one difficult part.

    Romance – The Reversed Magician in regards to romance is not a great sign. if you are single, it might not be a good time for you to look for a partner. You should try to first fix yourself and be happy with who you are before you invite somebody else to join your life. If you are in a relationship, I would expect something unexpected (what an unhelpful saying). You might learn something new about your partner, or vice-versa. it’s best not to keep secrets, as if you are with someone for life, they will know you thoroughly.

    Friends – In reverse, The Magician tarot tends to sway towards a period of discord in friendships. Look for ways to connect with each other, and try to spend some more time with your friends. This will be of benefit to everybody. Try to deepen your relationships, talk about deeper topics; ideas, beliefs, opinions, instead of more mundane baseline topics such as other people or places.

    Money – The Reversed Magician does not bode well for finances. This doesn’t mean you will suddenly lose it all, but expect difficulty in the coming months, especially if you are signed up to some sort of plan or scheme; there may have been something you have overlooked.

    Health – Take care of yourself. In regards to diet, firstly investigate what you are eating. You might have the wrong impression of some types of food, thinking they are healthy when they are not! This can also relate to exercising and mental health. You might have shirked meditation or weightlifting in the past, but in order for you to break out of your current state of mind, look into doing something completely alien to what you are used to.

    Spirituality and Mentality – In reverse, The Magician tarot card can build barriers based on ignorance and past judgements. Open your mind and try to embrace things you haven’t considered before. New experiences can only help right now. Try to dedicate some time each week towards doing something new.
