The Magus divinatory meanings
Mercury predominates with The Magus. The Magus is bisexual, ambidextrous, flirty, exasperating. Ever willing to communicate. He can fit in with the ambience of the situation. The Magus takes on the energies of the cards around him, and broadcasts that energy to all and sundry. He makes deals. He wangles, he tricks people. He says one thing and means another. He is a thief, but what is he stealing?
He is ever restless, circling close around the Sun. He brings down knowledge, communications and diktats on High, but is he reliable? Can we believe he really is being truthful, or is it ever more propaganda?
The Magus loves gossip and news, however trivial… after all, you never know when those titbits will come in useful. In conjunction with the Death or Moon, he represents the intelligence gathering of the Secret Services, but since they are unaccountable, it is impossible to know the veracity of what they have gleaned.
The Magus is for you to get your message across, but beware… make sure those emails really did turn up. Whenhe is weak, expect communication problems, crossed lines, an inability to speak, or torrents of words spewing out that make no sense.
