The Magician

Sudden Change, Release, Downfall, Revelation


Description:

This card is considered to be ill-omened. The thunderstorm of god opens the tower gate of Hell to free the virtuous dead from Limbo. It has just been hit by the lightning and is aflame. The top of the tower is crumbling and falling to the ground beneath. Two figures fall from the top of the tower; in other words, the people themselves are on the ground in flames or are themselves hit by the lightning. Sometimes they are simply onlookers to the fire. The Tower can be seen as the chastisement of pride and the intellect overwhelmed in the attempt to penetrate the Mystery of God.

Number:
