Love And Relationships

If you are single, the reversed Magician suggests you are becoming cynical about love and your love life. You might feel like you will never attract anyone good in your life.

Don’t let these thoughts in! Send positivity, love, and light out into the universe and you are sure to attract that back! 

Money And Career

The reversed Magician Tarot card suggests you aren’t using your abilities and skills to make the best of opportunities available to you. You might also be having feelings of self-doubt that are preventing you from making the most of these opportunities.

You might feel like you are not living to your full potential or are too afraid of the risks to try a new venture. 

The card also suggests there are deceitful people around you. If you are considering a new venture, but are unsure of who you can trust, it is wise to hold off. Take some time to learn more about these people or find new potential partners before you dive in. 

Financially, the card suggests you need a proactive approach to change any financial issues you might be facing.
