The Magician talks about the role of communication, the development of the capacity to make us understand clearly. We will evolve by exercising the mind and using reason. The Magician reminds us that we must avoid blind faith and even too strong emotions. Mind training and study will provide us with the opportunity to develop our faculties in a systematic way.
The Magician shows us how to communicate, how to sell our ideas, how to develop ingenuity and other skills, how to solve problems, how to address different things at the same time.

As he remembers the divine source of his power, the Magician remains the perfect conduit for miracles.
