TAROT INTRODUCTION – MAJOR ARCANA
TAROT SCHOOL BEGINS
The Major Arcana Cards. They trigger the subconscious mind setting off visions, impressions and unlock doors to great wisdom and understanding.
There r 21 major cards. As u look at the picture of each card, notice what u r the most drawn to in the card. Is the colors? Is it the expression on someone’s face? What r u most drawn to? And how do u feel when looking at that card? The number on the top of the card indicates the numerology and the description on the bottom denotes the meaning of the card. There is also astrological signs but, I am not good at that so, won’t try to go into it. When u get to the double digits add the numberrs together and u get the basic numerology of that card. ie: 12..1 + 2 = 3. so, use the meaning of the number 3.
Now get the major cards out and put them in numerical order. We will start with the first card for an explanation of each card. THESE R GOING TO BE VERY BRIEF EXPLANATIONS. As u look at them what do u “see’ in each card? THESE R THE MEANINGS right side up if reversed…just the opposite. DON’T post me to tell me these meaning r not in the book! I know some r not. this is MY interpretation. U may feel a card means something else…if so, go with ur meaning. Spirit is leading u. I am just kick starting u.
