It’s helpful to approach the numerology of the tarot as a cycle. Even numbers are often stable and enduring, while odd numbers generally embody various states of change and instability. The tarot is actually cyclical, so each ending also signifies a new beginning. Understanding the numerology of the tarot can provide a helpful window into the reading of the cards. Beyond learning the facts of numerology and the cards themselves, your accuracy in interpreting them will depend on your intuition and/or psychic abilities. With neither, a tarot reading will not mean much or could actually be quite harmful and a lack of empathy would suggest perhaps this is the wrong path to be on.

The Golden Tarot Major Arcana

Major Arcana cards show up when things are happening that pull us towards a certain destiny or path. Many Major Arcana cards in a reading is often a sign that our Spirit Guides and Angels are working behind the scenes to set everything up for us so that we can live the lives we are destined to live. While the Minor Arcana cards focus on the everyday actions and decisions you must face, these Major Arcana cards reveal messages about the bigger picture of your life and its long-term direction. A major arcana card represents an energy that is deep, strong, decisive or long-term. When a major arcana card appears in a reading, you have tapped into a powerful energy in some area of your life. The minor arcana cards do not carry the same weight, but they are still important. They chart the ups and downs of daily life and register changes in feelings and thoughts. These dramas are gripping while they occur, but they pass with time as new concerns take their place.

Comprised of imagery from the European masters paintings, Golden Tarot cards pay tribute to artwork of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance. The Golden Tarot of Klimt is one of the best for artwork. Golden Tarot aims to reconnect the Tarot aesthetically and esoterically to its origins in early-renaissance Italy. From a time of violence, pestilence and oppression came poignant images of gentle beauty and human frailty.

Book Details

Complete Book of Tarot: The Marseille deck consists of twenty-two trumps, forty pip cards, and sixteen court cards. The trumps are in the same arrangement as most modern decks with the exception of Justice (La Justice) falling in position VIII whereas Strength (La Force) falls in position XI. The Fool (Le Mat) is unnumbered. Today’s Magician, trump I, was called Le Bateleur (the Juggler, Mountebank, Showman, Buffoon). Trump II was La Papesse, the Female Pope, whereas trump V was Le Pape, the Pope of the Catholic Church. In addition, today’s Tower, trump XVI, was labeled Le Maison Dieu, the House of God. Finally, Trump XIII, the modern Death card, was without name and was referred to as L’Arcane sans nom (the unnamed trump).

Tarot Books

Creative Tarot: The Golden Dawn had probably the most influence on our contemporary understanding of the tarot. For this group of magicians and mystics, it was one tool of many in their magical system that pulled from sources like the Rosicrucians and the Kabbalah. One of the Golden Dawn’s founders, Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers, wrote the first guide to the tarot in England. The Tarot: Its Occult Signification, Use in Fortune-Telling and Methods of Play, published in 1888, the same year the Golden Dawn came into existence, established tarot as a magical tool, and standardized the deck (or tried to—variations soon emerged) into the four suits of Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles.

Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 3: The tarot is simply a tool that can help us to clarify our thinking. It’s up to us whether or not we use the cards. Some people find the tarot helpful, others do not. Occultist Hajo Banzhaf has cautioned that tarot is a good servant but a bad master. We should consult the tarot only if we find it helpful.
