The wizard can have associations with Merlin or the Magician of Tarot. It suggests drawing on your reserves in a masterful way to become more empowered. This 'magical' character can also represent the activation of intuition. The wizard can suggest a way of approaching obstacles by discrediting them. Something can only have power over you if you give it that power. Obstacles can be opportunities and you only see obstacles when you take your eyes off of the goal. A witch can signify negative traits adopted from the mother than can cause self limiting ideas. See Wise Man and Woman.
