Tarot cards are an ancient form of divination, whose origins are shrouded by the thick fog of time. Tarot was used during Renaissance in Italy as a popular game, and was rediscovered by occult scholars in the 18th century, and was connected to other forms of occultism.


It is an oracle that can answer questions about the past, the present and of course the future. It is a tool for guidance and for self-discovery and to get in touch with one’s own intuition. Tarot cards are an intermediary between the conscious and the unconscious mind. One thing they are not is a tool for black magic.

Essentially, Tarot is simply a set of symbols printed on a pack of 78 cards. These cards are shuffled and dealt, just as ordinary playing cards. The Tarot has four suits with 10 numbered cards and four court cards in each suit. In most Tarot decks, there are also 22 numbered Major Arcana. While the Major Arcana are the more powerful, since they deal with major life changes and philosophies of life, the Minor Arcana are often more commonly used in readings because they refer to the mundane events most questioners ask about. They are divided into four suits.

Tarot cards are not fortune-telling cards; they will not tell you that a certain event is definitely going to happen. The philosophy behind the Tarot is that all future events are subject to change, and if you are warned of unpleasant events in advance, you can prevent them……

Major Arcanas-

The Major arcana consists of 22 pages. The major arcana is more concerned with the reasons behind events. It can be described like a man on a journey, he starts on the road and encounters all manner of people and events along the way and through these experiences he learns life’s lessons and becomes more enlightened and fulfilled by the time he reaches the 22 cards the World. It is a physical as well as a spiritual journey. Wherever the major cards falls there is a stronger influence in that area of the inquirers life…….


Minor Arcanas –

The Minor Arcana is divided into four suits — Wands, Pentacles, Swords and Cups, with each suit possessing four court cards: Kings, Queens, Pages and Knights. They can show either circumstances, or people who are significant in the questioner’s life. It is important to remember that a king could also represent a woman who is in a position of authority or heavily biased towards her masculine side, while queen could represent a man who plays a nurturing role in questioner’s life…….

    I have a situation my tarot cards seem to have presented me with. I need guidance! Here’s the situation. I am currently “going out” with a guy, but its not a typically relationship. We’re more like best friends keeping each other safe from the drama of BEING in a relationship. Now, I haven’t seen him in about three weeks and I recently went on a trip where all my emotions were put into play. Over a three day vacation, I met a guy with whom I had an instant connection; it was like a missing piece of a puzzle. On the last day he gave me two things to make sure I wouldn’t forget him, a ring and a kiss. The guy I’m “going out” with for over a month (and I’ve known him for two years) has never had the CLICK that this guy I knew for three days had.
    Out of a need to consult myself and get my bearings, it read my tarot on the situation. Should I end the “relationship” that I’m in and begin a long-distance relationship? I used the “Decision Game” technique and here are the cards I drew:
    In slot 7, as the significator- Wheel of Fortune
    For the YES side- (chronologically)The Star; Judgement; Three of Cups
    For the NO side- Queen of Cups; Ace of Pentacles; Ten of Cups
    From my understanding of tarot, either way if I break up or not, I will end up very happy. However, The Star (a significant card in the “Decision Game” technique) indicates that the path I should take lies in the YES side of the cards.
    I need some interpretation advice!
