  Meaning of the Magician Tarot Card
Standing for someone other than the querent, the Magician could be a skillful doctor, scientist, inventor lecturer, salesman, or con-man. It's important to remember that the Magician can as easily be clever as skilful, a trickster as well as a magician.
The handkerchief is draped over an empty box, the Magician waves his wand, *presto!*--now there is a dove in the box.
The Magician card does the same for the Querent--only what it reveals is not birds or rabbits but NEW ideas.

 Magic (illusion) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The greatest celebrity magician of the nineteenth century (or possibly of all time), Harry Houdini (real name Erich Weiss, 1874 - 1926), took his stage name from Robert-Houdin and developed a range of stage magic tricks, many of them based on escapology (though that word was not used until after Houdini's death).
The magician snaps their fingers and a coin disappears; places a dove in a cage, claps his hands and the bird vanishes, including the cage, stuffs a silk into his fist and opens his hands revealing nothing, or waves a magic wand and the Statue of Liberty magically "goes away".
The magician links two apparently solid steel rings, or the cup and balls trick in which the foam balls appear to pass through the cup are penetration illusions.

Although the two visions of the magician can mix and interact in fascinating ways, it is accurate to say that in modern decks we usually see the magus; in the historic decks we usually see the stage magician.
