Major Arcana Tarot Spreads – Exploring the Heart of the Tarot

Major Arcana Tarot cards

The Tarot is a wonderful place to explore the full dimensions and nuances of our life, but sometimes the whole gamut of seventy-eight cards can get overwhelming, especially for the beginner. When you’re just starting out it may be easier to play with just the Majors, that is, the Major Arcana, and perhaps shelve the Minor Arcana for the time being.

But whether you are a newcomer to Tarot or a seasoned veteran, exploring the Major Arcana on its own with intentional spreads can help deepen your understanding and relationship with the Tarot as a whole.

Let’s take a look into some specifically designated Major Arcana Tarot spreads and discuss why and when we might want to use them. Continue reading “Major Arcana Tarot Spreads – Exploring the Heart of the Tarot”

Kings of the Tarot – The Masters of Success

The four king cards from the Lo Scarabeo Tarot

The Kings of the Tarot. These are our masters, the ones who have learned everything they need to know – or at least think they do – and have mastered their particular element of expertise. This does not mean they are without faults and blind spots, but it means they have a lot to tell us about what we are doing right and what we yet need to achieve success in our lives.

Here we will delve a little bit into what our tarot kings can reveal. Remember, though, that this is just a brief jaunt into the world of the kings of the tarot – the more you study them and the more they come up in your readings, the more you will learn for yourself about them and what they mean for you.

The tarot is full of tiny nuances and limitless interpretations. Your insights may differ from mine, and they may even differ from day to day, and that’s okay! In fact, that’s brilliant! Remember that whatever you see in the Tarot is right and correct. Have fun and remember not to take yourself too seriously! Continue reading “Kings of the Tarot – The Masters of Success”
