Your Chosen Card – The Sorcerer Reversed Mage Deck

When reversed, the Magician may be using his willpower, knowledge and skills for less than honorable purposes. An ill-dignified Magician may be engaged in deception, manipulation, or the misuse of power. He may be weak-willed or lacking in confidence and thus fail to use his communication skills in a productive manner. When the Magician appears reversed in a reading, it is wise to explore what is preventing you from maintaining the mental focus that will enable you to act like a magician in your life.
