Wirth, Oswald – 01 The Magician
Type of Spiritual Experience
Bateleur does not translate to magician, It is closer to the idea of a juggler or jester.
Is it a wand or is it a scroll? Red pill or blue pill?
A description of the experience
The Tarot of the Magicians – Oswald Wirth English translation 1985 Samuel Weiser.
First published in Paris in 1927 under the original title: Le Tarot, des lmagiers du Moyen Age
Discreet in his exuberance, this young man moves around behind a rectangular table, of which only three legs are visible.
They could be marked with the signs ~ ,8 and 9(Sulphur, Salt and Mercury) for they are the three pillars of the objective world, supports to the substance perceived by our prime senses.
On this table, (the realm of phenomena) are placed three objects; a silver cup, a steel sword and a gold skekel, called a 'pentacle'. It is on this disc, where appear five-pointed stars.
