The magician was one of the hardest cards for me to do, primarily because I was so stuck on model, that it affected how I wanted to make it.  However, in the end I wanted to preserve the whole 'don't look at this hand, look at that one' feeling.  The pentacle, unfortunately is a bit hard to see, lying flat on the table.  

P.s. I've officially finished the Major Arcana, so look for them all up soon (only three left to upload I think).

Magician Tarot Card Meanings and Description

The Magician is associated with the planet, Mercury and carries with it skill, logic, and intellect. The number of the Magician is one, the number of beginnings. The Magician is the bridge between the world of the spirit and the world of humanity. His right hand holds a staff raised toward the sky and his left hand points to the earth. He takes the power of the Universe and channels it through his own body and directs it to the physical plane. Above the Magician’s head is the symbol of eternity and around his waist is a snake biting its own tail, another symbol of eternity. His magical table holds all four suits of the Tarot, each of which represents one of the four primordial elements of the alchemists – earth, air, fire and water. These symbolise the appropriate use of mind, heart, body and soul in the process of manifestation. The Magician’s robe is white, symbolising the purity and innocence found in the Fool but his cloak is red, representing worldly experience and knowledge. In the bed of flowers at his feet this duality is repeated in the mix of pure white lilies and thorny red roses.
