"Tarot helps reveal and slough away subconscious patterns that keep us stuck and spinning, it propels us forward into the space we'd like to be."
TAROT cards are made up of 78 cards
- The Major Arcana (greater secrets), or trump cards, consists of 22 cards without suits: The Magician, The High Priestess, The Empress, The Emperor, The Hierophant, The Lovers, The Chariot, Strength, The Hermit, Wheel of Fortune, Justice, The Hanged Man, Death, Temperance, The Devil, The Tower, The Star, The Moon, The Sun, Judgement, The World and The Fool. Cards from The Magician to The World are numbered in Roman numerals from I to XXI, while The Fool is the only unnumbered card, sometimes placed at the beginning of the deck as 0, or at the end as XXII
- The Minor Arcana (lesser secrets) consists of 56 cards, divided into four suits of 14 cards each; ten numbered cards and four court cards. The court cards are the King, Queen, Knight and Page, in each of the four tarot suits. The traditional Italian tarot suits are swords, batons/wands, coins and cups; in modern tarot decks, however, the batons suit is often called wands, rods, the coins suit is often called pentacles or disks.
- The Major Arcana represent the journey of life starting with The Fool and ending with The World. These cards signify major events and choices at hand, they appear heavier in the reading and carry more weight.
- The Minor Arcana represent situations and relationships that come and go. It shows where and how we're affected by the past, how we are reacting in the present and our paths to the future. It shows us what is working and what isn't.
Tarot is not evil or satanic.In the imagery and you'll find angels, allegories to bible stories and references to the Kabbalah. The cards merely represent a way to connect to our personal energy and intuition.
Tarot does not tell your future, though it can help shape your future.
