Time after time, the Fool drifted everywhere, sometimes, she was like a seed floating in the wind, the swirling feather or the condensation of crystal dust, then she saw the Magician Shadowscapes Tarot.

He was taught and learned to successfully control the ability to purify, summon and bind.
One day, she could not stand it any longer, lightly gliding her fingers to touch the eyes of the Magician which awakened with new beginnings at the moment. “Who are you?” He asked, instantaneously, the soul turned into a deer shape and jumped away.
He followed the trail deep into the forest. But that animal is always wise to place itself outside the reach. He walked on the ground with his bare feet and the wind blew through his hair. The sunlight flowed over his shoulder. The white light emitted from the deer reflected in the green light of the plants, mocking him so badly, until, all of a sudden…
It disappeared, suddenly he realized he was alone…
On the rock, he noticed there was something left for him. Relics of elements that shone under the sun; and he kept those treasures in hands, at the same time, he prayed with a smile on his face and let the energy flow over them
II. The meaning of the Magician Shadowscapes Tarot
This card talks about uniqueness, creativity, skill, will, self-confidence, agility, skillful use of hands, and tricks; mainly about capturing unknown things around you, exploiting them to become realistic and learning to throw invisible things into the world of material existence.
The Magician Shadowscapes Tarot holds artifacts representing elements: the light of the fire in the lantern, the sound of the sea in the shell, the breath of the wind in the raven feather, and the soul of the earth in the leaves. He understands what he wants, and, he also knows that he has the ability to turn all things into reality with the consciousness of his will and the knowledge of how to control the world.
In the Shadowscapes Tarot, if the Devil is blindly greedy, then the Magician is another kind of greed in a decent and clever way.
He is a talented magician who is fluent in all the rules of life and always has many tricks to achieve what he wants. He carried the long wings of the angel on the shoulders and the evil horn of the devil on the head. There are both bad and good sides within him, but here, we can see he tends to use tricks for his personal purposes. It is a demonstration of himself to gain much admiration from others.
On his wings, there are four items that represent four heavenly elements and four suits of a traditional Tarot deck: light (fire – wands), snail (water – cups), feather (swords), leaf (earth – pentacles), showing that he grasped the most basic rules of heaven and earth. On his head, there is an infinite sign emphasizing that his knowledge is immensely broad and unlimited. On his back, there is an image of a snake biting its tail. It is Ouroboros – a symbol of wisdom in the mysterious world, capturing the law of circulation of life and holding alchemy.
The greed of the Magician’ Shadowscapes Tarot is expressed in how he wants to grasp the ways in which things are made in this world. If the Devil is greedy due to the desire to possess available things to control it, the Magician is greedy by making them by himself and gaining the absolute admiration of everyone around. We can see it on the Magician’s hand, there is a sphere that gradually appears like a sphere lying in a stone pillar at his feet that is protected by snakes and is very dangerous. Because of that, the Magician was not foolishly looking for a way to obtain it, but he was only looking for a way to create it and to satisfy his curiosity and what this new challenge brings.
