On the Soulscapes Magician when you look at it a certain way there are two very owl like eyes peering at you from a background of ever moving energy that culminates in the eternity symbol, or if you look at it another way there is a being standing with arms upraised invoking the power within to emerge into the world, becoming self created.
Above the head of the magician in most traditional decks there the eternity symbol or lemniscate and in the Soulscapes image it is entwined onto the background becoming an integral part of the process of being, understanding the fluctuations and flow of information, the cyclical nature of time, the ebb and flow of consciousness which can be directed by the individual once they become aware of the processes within.
On the Rider Waite / Pamela Coleman Smith image the symbols or treasures are laid out on a three legged table. The cup, wand, sword and pentacle representing the minor Arcana, or tools of the trade of the magician and it is suggested that he / she understands and uses these forces.
In some decks the title of this card is the juggler and the very act of learning to juggle is a skill that must first be learned and then practiced and honed in order to be able to perform. Getting aquainted with our creative faculties and imagination requires the same process.
