Description of the Magician
In the Rider-Waite Tarot deck, the Magician is described as a young man, with the symbol of infinity over his head and an ouroboros (a snake biting its own tail) belt, wearing a white robe and a red cloak. He stands among a garden of roses and lilies, his right hand holds a magic wand raised toward the sky and his left hand points to the earth. His table holds items representing the suits of the Minor Arcana: cups, swards, pentacles and wands.
