Tarot cards are among the most popular divination methods in the world. With over 7,000 different decks in circulation, a new witch can become overwhelmed with the choices. Some are based upon famous artwork, movies, books, legends, mythology, and even movies. However, in the end the best deck for you is the one you are drawn to.
A Tarot deck consists of 78 cards. The first 22 cards are the Major Arcana. These cards have symbolic meanings focused on the material world, the intuitive mind, and the realm of change. The remaining 56 cards are the Minor Arcana, and are divided into four groups or suits: Swords, Pentacles (or Coins), Wands and Cups.
Each of the four suits focus on a theme. Sword cards generally indicate conflict or moral issues, while Cups reflect matters of emotion and relationships. Coins focus on the material aspects of life, such as security and finance, while Wands represent things like jobs, ambition, and activity.
How Do Tarot Cards Work?
To the uninitiated, it may seem that a Tarot card reader “predicts the future.” However, the cards simply offer a guideline, based upon the forces at work. Some readers use elaborate layouts, while others may just pull out three to five cards and see what they need to see. Read for anyone who will let you and don’t be afraid to tell people what you see. Eventually, you’ll get comfortable with reading Tarot cards, and that’s when your skill will really shine. If you are buying your first deck, it is best to get one with a detailed companion book until you are familiar with reading Tarot.
