1 The Magician
When you first show up in Tarot Land, you are knocked off your socks pretty quickly by anyone with more experience than you. This person is the real deal. They have mastered a lot of stuff that you are just looking into. I am pretty sure that they are going to impress the heck out of you. So we have skill, and charm, and creative willpower. A good Magician keeps the awe going.
The Yellow sky is the bright solar creative energy. Using this energy as his backdrop - we experience the show of the magician. His floating islands with living plants are part of his show - we see above him is still more to do, so this is a temporary guru at best. His cape radiates warm orange and hot red inward and outward, with a silhouette of a black cloud (or ufo, depending on what software you are running) mirrored on each side, focusing attention to the hands clasped at the magician’s heart. Two extra sets of arms hold the suits of the Tarot - the sword, rod, cup, and pentacle - showing his practice of study and understanding that give him the skill level we look at as magic. The hat and beard may be facade, their presence suggests a wisdom in secrets we have yet to partake, but could something so advertised be much of a secret?
1 is the number of the magician. You start with a 1. The magician decides it must be a wand.
