The meanings of each card in the tarot deck are varied, sometimes several, and cards in combination have additional meaning.
There are some similarities between these cards’ translations and the Kabbalah’s concepts.
As a result of its position and the cards surrounding it, the card reader determines the meaning of each card within the psychic reading.
The Major Arcana
The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards. Major Arcana cards do not have suits. A set of cards is used to determine where the subject is on the path of life or if he or she has wandered off.
The cards that make up the Major Arcana are, in numerical order, as follows: The Fool, The Magician, The High Priestess, the Empress, the Emperor, The Pope, The Lovers, The Chariot, Strength, The Hermit, the Wheel, Justice, The Hanged Man, Death, Temperance, The Devil, the Tower, the Star, The Moon, the Sun, Judgment, The World.
The Minor Arcana
This deck of playing cards is quite similar to a standard deck of playing cards, except instead of three face cards, there are four: a King, Queen, Knight, and Page. Four suits and a set of ten cards are available; these pips are also known as suits. Each of these four suits has a name: Cups, Wands, Swords, and Coins.
Some Popular Spreads
Spreads, or patterns, can be used to determine someone’s fortune based upon a number of factors. Each spread specifies the order in which the cards should be turned over.
The interpretation of the card within the spread depends on the placement of the card within the spread, and will relate to the subject’s aspirations, acknowledged or not.
In many readings, the first card in the spread represents the question to be answered. This is called the Querent. Oftentimes, the solution is it that is written on the second card in the spread.
The Celtic Cross is the most popular spread, which uses 10 cards.
There are three cards used in the Three Card Spread to tell the past, the present, and the future of the subject.
A Mirror Spread is typically used for a romantic relationship. In these relationships, there is not always an element of love; friendships, business relationships, etc. can all be involved. Eight cards are used at each position.
The Astrological Spread, which is used to represent the entire zodiac, or 12 houses of the zodiac. Thirteen cards are normally used, the last being the Signification.
Tarot cards and psychic readings can be fun, interesting, and insightful.
If you know the meanings and interpretations of each card, your psychic readings will be that much more exciting, regardless of whether you are the subject or the card reader.
A psychic, astrologer, or clairvoyant can really assist.
