In a love reading for a single woman, The Magician often represents her soul mate or ideal partner. If she has just started dating and her new squeeze is represented by The Magician, there is great promise that this might be ‘The One.’
As signifying the quality of a relationship, The Magician is symbolic of a great mental connection and sparkling communication. This is the card you want to show up in a reading if you ask specifically about intellectual compatibility as the corresponding planet for The Magician is Mercury, the planet of communication.
If you are in a relationship and this card comes up as relationship advice, it usually means one of two things: A) It’s a good idea to spend some time developing your own skills and interests or B) You could benefit from relationship counselling to improve your communication skills.
If you are in a relationship and this card shows up reversed or ill dignified, it could mean that your partner is less than truthful with you. The Magician is known as ‘the trickster’ and one of the archetypes linked with him is Loke, the Norse God of Mischief.
However, at its best the presence of the Mercurial Magician in a relationship could definitely mean the start of either a new and absolutely wonderful relationship or starting over again, with a new and better way of relating/communicating.
On an intimate level, talking dirty and/or giving each other verbal instructions could be fun to try suggests The Magician. Also, he has the best chat-up lines! :-)
