The Conjurer's Realm: Unveiling Magic and Alchemy - Dust II Onyx Tarot

The Conjurer emerges as a powerful archetype, signaling the profound alchemy of turning visions into reality. This card is a beacon of personal agency and manifestation. It is a card that calls upon the querent to harness their intrinsic power, to align their intentions with their actions, and to recognize their potential to influence and shape the world around them through the mastery of skills, the application of knowledge, and the exertion of willpower.


Embodied within The Conjurer is the quintessence of possibility and potential. This card illuminates the path of opportunity, beckoning one to seize the moment with both hands. It is the harbinger of a time ripe for action, an era when the conditions are set for you to forge ahead with confidence and purpose. The Conjurer serves as a reminder that the tools for success are within your grasp, and the universe aligns to support the endeavors of those who are prepared to use them wisely. As such, it is a symbol of power and drive, an invitation to bring plans and dreams into the tangible realm.


The artistry of The Conjurer card is a tapestry woven with symbolic threads, each element a testament to the card's profound meaning. The central figure stands enigmatic, a sentinel at the threshold of discovery, embodying the union of the elemental forces that govern existence: earth's solidity, water's fluidity, fire's dynamism, and air's transcendence. Their contemplative pose suggests a deep communion with these forces, an understanding that mastery over them is within reach.

Adorned with the luxurious textures of their robe, the scales reminisce of the water's depth and the mystery of the subconscious, while the fiery clasps suggest transformation and the purity of creation. Suspended above, the glasses are not mere spectacles but portals to perception beyond the mundane, granting insight into realms unseen. The recurring motif of the infinity symbol adorns the figure's attire, a nod to the boundless, eternal flow of cosmic energy that permeates all things. The Conjurer is thus portrayed as the master of elements, the orchestrator of the symphony that is existence, standing firmly with the nascent potential of the unmanifested at their feet

When The Conjurer appears upright in a tarot reading, it heralds a period of high potential and empowerment. This card suggests that you are currently in a position of significant personal agency, with the ability to direct your will and resources toward your desired outcomes. The presence of The Conjurer is a reminder of your unique talents and the creative force you possess. It is an auspicious sign for new endeavors, indicating that the time for planning has passed and the moment for action has arrived.

The Conjurer in its upright position is a powerful indicator of the manifestation of goals and dreams. It implies that you have a clear understanding of your objectives and the means to achieve them. You are encouraged to take decisive steps, to apply your skills, and to shape your reality with intention. This card is about making things happen, not through chance, but through a conscious and directed effort. The Conjurer’s message is clear: harness the power within you, utilize the tools at your disposal, and bring forth into the world that which was once only a thought.


Sometimes The Conjurer can appear when you feel unprepared for a new position or financial investment. Take, for example, a brand that you've been planning out in your head for years, but feel woefully unprepared to start it yourself. The Conjurer is telling you now is the time to launch it.

You don't need to have the perfect launch to achieve success. You also don't need to wear all the hats of a business in order to get it off of the ground.

Whatever money you are able to put away every month for assembling a team or outsourcing the pieces of the puzzle will eventually lead to a strong foundation. In tarot, the manifestation of dreams isn't some complex formula or esoteric practice, it's about putting thoughts into action and listening to messages that you come across.


How does one manifest love or relationships? You can take The Conjurer in a tarot card reading as a literal sign to start looking into love magic rituals or as a sign of self-preparation. Love magic is very powerful, but also very popular among those wanting to take a more active role in their spiritual life.

For everyone else, there comes a great satisfaction when you've successfully removed all the cobwebs and emotional baggage to let the right one in. The Conjurer card will tell you it is time to turn up the charisma and let go of outdated inhibitions. For tarot readings that question current relationships, this card will always appear when there's an overabundance of Mercury energy (The Conjurer's ruling planet).

This could mean using caution when navigating your relationships or trusting others. More on that below in the Reversal section.


The Conjurer is a great card to spark your plan of action toward improving your health. As the card of manifestation, you may encounter it in a reading if you are going through an illness. It's also commonly seen when unpacking mental health issues that were unknown or suppressed while growing up.

We see this as an opportunity to start taking ownership of our own health, rather than going along with what society has taught us. For example, think about how many different forms of physical exercise there are; there is no wrong or right way to strengthen your body. Blame gym-culture and fatphobia for leading so many of us astray.

Doing your own research and finding alternative means to heal is a heavy task, but this is how you begin to understand your body and listen to what its telling you it needs. Listening to your body is partly physical and partly spiritual.

You need to have a clear mind and have built up a rapport with your own subconscious. Look into doing some grounding rituals if you have trouble trusting your inner-voice. This spiritual confidence is necessary for harnessing The Conjurer's manifestation.

It's time to find your own power and get out there and grab it!


As we explore the ways in which The Conjurer gives us the green-light to manifest our desires, it can become a warning sign for others' desires. When The Conjurer is reversed, it's signaling possible manipulation or negative influences around you. For personal relationships, this could come as a surprise to some, as their means of influence may not be overt.

Those who have selfish reasons for helping you may not always be sinister, but it is worth staying on guard. For business relationships, The Conjurer is everywhere, but it becomes a bigger issue when you allow yourself to sacrifice your own time and mental health for those who do not respect you.

The Conjurer card may also indicate a need for work on your higher self to reach your full potential. A classic example of holding yourself back and not realizing your own goals and dreams is the Imposter Syndrome. To break through these mental barriers, it is important to practice being kind and honest with yourself; plot your successes, not just your failures.


In its reversed state, The Conjurer cautions against potential malpractices or ethical compromises in the workplace. It may reflect a period marred by self-doubt or a lack of direction in financial endeavors. This is a time for introspection, to reassess your strategies and ensure that your actions are aligned with your highest integrity.


The Conjurer reversed may suggest that power dynamics in relationships are off-balance, that there may be a tendency towards manipulation, or that skepticism is eroding the foundations of trust. It is a nudge to reflect on your relational patterns and to seek a path that fosters honesty and equality.


On the physical plane, there may be a disconnection between intention and action, a reminder to reclaim your agency in health and well-being. In the spiritual realm, The Conjurer reversed calls for a reevaluation of beliefs, an invitation to shed the skepticism that hinders spiritual enlightenment and to rediscover the power of faith in the unseen.


As a one-card pull, The Conjurer is a resounding 'yes.' It encourages affirmative action and underscores a trust in your capabilities to manifest desired outcomes.


Astrologically, The Conjurer is intertwined with the energies of Mercury, the celestial messenger. Mercury's influence accentuates communication, intelligence, and the mental agility required to navigate and manipulate one's environment effectively. It is this planetary correspondence that further infuses The Conjurer with attributes of cunning, adaptability, and the swift conversion of thought into substance.

Both Virgo and Gemini signs are ruled by Mercury, as well. What does this mean for your lifepath, if you fall under one of these signs? Firstly, you must navigate obstacles tactfully and through careful negotiation.

Both Virgos and Geminis are no strangers to feeling that they are "too much" for some. This is due to their strong willpower and means of communication. They are very open and vocal about their feelings and desires. This blessing can sometimes be a curse, as it attracts those who may look to take advantage of such honest and powerful energy.

Take care of the now infamous Mercury Retrograde, aka Mercury is in Gatorade. Whenever its orbit is in reverse (from Earth's perspective), issues with communication and feeling overwhelmed from responsibilities are more likely to happen. Remember to stop and take time for yourself before taking on new roles or responsibilities from others.
