In virtually every deck of Tarot cards made to date, there is a
clear cut division between 2 very distinct types of cards in the
deck, the MAJOR and the Minor Arcana. In this section I
will discuss the Major Arcana.
The Major Arcana
The Major Arcana (Or the
Trump Cards) are known
as the most powerful cards in the deck, starting
with the The Magician and ending with the Fool. To me
these cards are the most important in the deck because they
represent the most powerful influences in the questioners life . They predict
major issues, and they outweigh all other cards.
Their position in the
spread, show the reader where to pay special attention and
care to, because it is those cards that are most important to
the reader. They are practically jumping out to you and
giving you the biggest hint.
Pay attention to the
images on the card. The cards have a divinatory meaning
insofar as the energies and the events surrounding the
person consulting the cards are concerned. The lessons
these cards are trying to teach are self-development,
improvement and the healing of mind body and spirit, or the
Triquetra of the person.
The deck that I will be using for
the graphics. I have sent a letter for permission, and
will take them down if I am not allowed. But full credit
is given to Ellen Cannon Reed and Martin Cannon for the cards.
And to Llewellyn Publishing. None of the graphic from the
cards can be reproduced without their permission.
