The symbolism and wisdom of the tarot have been used for centuries and its magic and guidance are still used until now. Regardless of what theme you choose for your tarot cards, the cards will still exhibit their unique meanings. Reading tarot cards for yourself requires a lot of practice and experience but one can always begin with the basics.
A deck or pack has 78 cards which are grouped just like the common playing cards. The cards are classified uniquely as either belonging to the Minor Arcana or Major Arcana. This helps the reader interpret tarot cards that are selected by an individual.
The Minor Arcana is divided into 4 houses each focusing on an event. Here’s a brief outline of their meanings:
Major Arcana is generally considered as the real deal. When reading the cards of the Major Arcana, it would be very important to be honest, brave, and straightforward. Should you find a lot of Major Arcana cards in the interpretation; it is likely that you are going through a very tough and emotional time at the moment.
Tarot cards may be more complicated and difficult to use when you are doing it on your own. Tarot card reading is a personal and spiritual process that requires a lot of intuition, mastery, good judgment, and self-expression. You have to get involved in preconceived ideas and situations which may provide you with the answers that you need. The more you practice and become familiar with the cards, the more you will find it easier to read them.
