Like the Aeon Arcana, the Councillor is not found in standard tarot decks. The Councillor Arcana is the El Gran Tarot Esoterico's equivalent to the Magician Arcana and is numbered I. While upright, it is a tarot card that denotes diplomacy, possibilities of choice, creativity, skills to persuade, vitality and power over mental illness. On the other hand, while reversed it can represent indecisiveness, insecurity, lack of originality, sickness or exploitation of the innocent.
Personas of this arcana are generally wise beasts or governors of nature.

- The Councillor Arcana is an equivalent of the Magician Arcana, alluding to Maruki's seemingly magical powers to soothe severe mental illnesses.
