The magician represents our ability to focus our mind on a subject or goal. What you focus on in life is what you get. So the magician is a force we use every day to focus our lives. Since focused thinking is so important in reaching a goal, the proper use of the magician helps us reach any goal we set for ourselves. But the magician does not rule truth, so if we focus our magician on falsehood we get falsehood not truth. Be careful on what you focus on…you might get it!
This is self-conscious awareness or objective mind. This is ordinary waking consciousness of human beings.
