Tarot's Major Arcana Is A Guide To Life's Deepest Mysteries

Within the Tarot, the 22 cards of the Major Arcana represent the deepest mysteries in life, but also provide the most profound meaning to the different stages in our life's journey.


One of the most authentic psychic readings a person can have is often delivered when psychic mediums use Tarot cards, a method of divination that dates back to the late 1700s in Europe. Before that, the colorful and expressive Tarot cards were used in Italian and French card games that continue to be played to this day.


The cards go in sequence from the Fool, which represents charming but sometimes impulsive innocence, to the World, a card that shows completion of a cycle and the wholeness that results.


What lies between them are cards that examine all the good and bad influences, positive experiences and stressful uncertainties that we're likely to encounter in daily life. Sometimes the names of the cards don't convey their true meaning, so recipients should focus on the message carefully for a fuller understanding of why that card came their way in a reading.


The Magician, for instance, isn't mystical, but is instead one of the most practical Tarot symbols. Among the most misunderstood is the Death card, which is actually more about transformation than death. It represents the darkness before the light when the time may call for a "rebirth" that will change our direction.


For other stages of the dilemmas we face, a reading may reveal the Empress or Emperor, the Hierophant - the link between man and the divine - the Lovers, the Chariot, Strength, the Hermit, the Wheel of Fortune, Justice, the Hanged Man, Death, Temperance, the Devil, the Tower, the Star, the Moon, the Sun and Judgment. When the cards are received upside down, their meanings may shift considerably, counseling us of the different ways we can look at any situation.
