In many ways there is no comparison between these cards and their traditional counterparts, but sometimes the way to understanding the card is by understanding what it is not. The Magician uses tools and illusion to obtain power, this figure uses nothing. How much more powerful can you be than when you realize you are free to be exactly who you are, nothing more and nothing less? She is not trying to impress anyone, because then she would be giving her power to those she wants to impress. On a mundane level, this is represented by the figure's nudity, there is nothing to hide and no shame. By just being she is open to everything that is offered to her, all of existence.
