Before anyone can answer specifically (and usefully), it would help if you'd provide a bit more information.
What do you mean by "offering (your) services as a magician"? Doing what, exactly? Where? For whom?
And how do you define "professional"?
As for what to charge, largely that's a function of who it is you're working for and what it is you're doing for them. A professional entertainer at a private party will be paid according to a different scale than someone working a corporate event.
And a professional entertainer in one section of the country (or world) will be paid according to a different scale than entertainers elsewhere. "What the market will bear" married to "what are you worth?" will get you closer to that figure.
