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 Salem 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.

With deep rich colors, subdued by subtle shades of red/orange, the overall look is dark as you would expect from a deck loosely designed to reflect the witch periods of Salem. The Salem Tarot is a deck of magic and destiny. Within its 78 cards lies the souls path from birth to death and beyond. It’s uses pagan and medieval imagery and each card has subtle flashbacks to the times of Salem and the witch trials.

Elements of the Psychic World: According to one version of the story, the Palatine was a Dutch ship that left Holland in 1752 with a host of immigrants. The ship was travelling to Philadelphia but off the coast of New England it was damaged in a storm. The crew killed the captain, robbed the passengers and abandoned them, taking off in the lifeboats. The unmanned ship drifted towards Block Island, a place so dangerous for passing ships that a band of land pirates called the Block Island Wreckers made their fortune from salvaging wrecks. Curiously in the case of the Palatine, the pirates saved the lives of the passengers before plundering the ship. One woman, who had been driven insane by the trauma of the mutiny, refused to leave the ship even when it was set alight by the pirates. According to lore her screams could be heard as the flaming wreck drifted out to sea. In other versions of the story the pirates were not so merciful, but plundered the ship and set it alight with the living still on board. Yet another version claims that the captain and crew deliberately wrecked the ship so they could plunder it and rob the passengers.
