As has been observed many times already in the thread on this particular card, the Magician is all about trickery and illusion on a certain level. I for one also think the Magician is all about power. But he's also an "entry level" trump, and in the game he is low on the totem pole.

Does this card mean that all of existence is trickery, an illusion, created by our mind, maya, as well?

I don't know what to think.

This is probably good for me.
I am definitely on the same side of the fence as you Master_Margarita. I bought this deck not too long ago and I am trying to slowly learn each card. I pulled this one today and tried to study it but I quickly became confused because I tried to assimilate it with the magician. This card can mean so many things! I guess it really just depends on the particular situation. Thank you for all of the previous posts and descriptions of this card. It has really helped me gain insight.

I think that studying the OZT really adds a new perception to other standard decks. I know that studying this card definitely broadened my horizons of the magician card.
