What is Tarot?
Tarot is made of a pack of seventy-eight cards. However, rather than using normal playing card suits, these cards have their own four suits. They use colour, symbolism and detailed drawings to tell their story. Saying that, twenty-two cards, called the Major Arcana Cards, whilst using the same colours etc are not included in the suits. They are the most important cards in Tarot. This is because they deal with major life lessons rather than the other fifty-six cards (called the Minor Arcana). The Minor Arcana represent day to day problems. In the case of the sixteen Court Cards, it is people.
The Minor Arcana are further divided into suits. Each is represented by one of the ancient elements.
- Cups – water, or the emotions
- Pentacles – earth, or the physical world
- Swords – air, the mental aspects
- Wands – fire, or energy and action
By combining all the above and by analysing the colours, the symbolism and the images I can provide an in-depth email Tarot Reading (including a photo of your cards). This is done by analysing colour, symbolism, imagery, suits and whether the cards are Major or Minor Arcana.
