Tarot Card Decks

Jun 7, 2008
Tarot card decks consist of 78 cards and the cards have two grouping. The first group is called the 'Major Arcana' and the second the 'Minor Arcana'. Each group differs in appearance as well as the role they play in a Tarot card reading.

When having a Tarot reading it is the Major Arcana cards that a person should give the most importance to. These cards deal with things that can have a big effect on the future such as making big decisions or the right choices at the right time.

The design of the Tarot deck is intrigue and visually appealing, especially that of the Major Arcana cards. These cards are very distinctive and colorful and they need to be considering the importance of them during a Tarot a reading and this importance will not be overlooked by a good Tarot reader.

The cards of the Major Arcana total twenty two and start from the 'Fool' card (zero) to the 'World' card (21). The fool represents beginning's while the world represents endings. The cards in between show various other aspects of a persons life such as, challenges, lessons and the like.

When the major arcana cards show up during a reading, they are trying to inform the person of a major situation in their life. This can be something at work, such as a job promotion to a legal matter. Be sure to pay close attention to the cards, especially if they continuously show up during your reading. They could be telling you that you have to deal with a specific situation before you will be able to move ahead in your life. This could also mean there is a decision that must be made, and it will effect your future.

The remaining 56 cards are the minor arcana cards. Each of these cards symbolize the trials of the individuals everyday life. These are the situations and circumstances that can be changed by the individual.

Minor arcana cards are split up into four groups. They are pentacles, wands, cups and swords. It is common for the groups to change symbols, this is so the reader is able to understand the cards a little better and explain the meaning to the client a little clearer. An example of this is the pentacles are frequently changed into coins. This is changed to coins because the pentacle symbolizes money. The sword is a symbol of conflict. The cups symbolize relationships.

In most readings both types of cards will come up. The major arcana cards are the destiny cards that are unable to be changed, for the most part. The minor arcana cards are the cards that can be changed as the decisions of a person are changed and modified. The major arcana cards are not to be taken lightly. If they suggest something, keep it in mind.
