Palladini TarotA young man stands in a garden. He wears the robes of the Magician, and they are made of chain-mail. Upon his chest he wears the signs of the planets and nature. He holds a flowering wand tipped with a green crystal, through which energy flows. His right hand points above, his left hand points below, signifying the bringing down of light to the earth. This is the light of grace and virtue, which gives life to all things. On a table in front of him are the symbols of the four tarot suits, Rods, Swords, Pentacles and Cups. These are the signs by which he creates magic. Around his waist coils a snake swallowing its tail, the ancient symbol of eternity, of the great circle of life. Above his head floats the symbol of infinity, for his power is everlasting. The Magician uses the power and gifts of the spirit to create magic on earth. He represents the highest motives of man; to create and not destroy.
