Writing Prompt #139 “The Magician”

The Magician

Mark Stavish

I have decided to proceed with the tarot prompt and this week we have The Magician. For a more thorough description of the card’s meaning click here. Pay careful attention to the imagery in the cards as it can offer you further avenues for exploration. As you know there are many tarot packs available and thus many different renderings of The Magician card that you are welcome to use instead. You can focus on the upright or reversed meaning or incorporate both.

Some themes to consider

Success and what that means to you, stories of success and empowerment

Creative Ventures

Your brand/what do you stand for? What do you represent?

What are your resources? (a list of external and internal resources)





Lack of self belief

No one takes me seriously!

    I love these tarot prompts. I have linked my response, a divine look at the magician and haiku.

    Hi, could you tell me where this image is from? I’m researching cover imagery for a new book on the tarot and would love to learn more about the artist and potential use. Thanks!
