Infinity: The Lemniscate Symbol in the Tarot
The infinity symbol in the Tarot refers to the infinite nature of humanity. It is showing us that we are forever immortal, and calling our spirit to embark on a journey of infinite transformation.
We first encounter the infinity symbol in the Magician card, here we see the Magician with his arms outstretched pointing the heaves and the earth - the Spiritual and physical worlds. He has all the tools for journey set before him on a table. The Infinity symbol above his head and around his belt remind us that the tools we need for this journey are infinitely at our disposal.
Because this card is the first in the Tarot sequence, we think of the Magician as beginning his journey. However, the infinity symbol reminds us the journey is not is not a one-way trip. The tools are at his disposal but he also appears to be presenting them to others as if he has used them before and knows their value. It’s almost as if the Magician is at a market or fair presenting the tools. One can picture the baker or butcher at the table or stall next store. In this setting the magician is showing us that the insights we receive from the journey are to be shared with others just as he is sharing them with us.
