The Magician
The Magician sits with the symbols of the four suits before her; dagger is sword and the air, coins are the earth and property, chalice is cups and the waters of the inner life, the branch in her hand is wands and the power of creation. The dagger cuts the pomegranate revealing more than just fruit. The monkey entwined about her arm chews on the other half of the pomegranate which resembles a human heart. It could be fruit or flesh, what is your perspective? You choose. The Magician's arm covers a book of the Tarot of the Pomegranate, the same book the High Priestess holds in her hands. The Magician sits inside an otherwise walled up doorway, she has access to the other side. She has all the elements she needs to continue on her journey but she is not sure what they all mean yet. The Magician is the first card in the Tarot, the beginning. The table reveals a foreshadowing of the darkness and light to come.
