Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Portable Magic: Since the identities of the trumps reside in the images they bear, and these images vary from deck to deck, it follows that the essential natures of the trumps will vary depending on which deck is used. For example, differences in symbolism on the trump the Star between the traditional Marseilles deck and the modern Thoth deck change the very identity of that trump. Over the centuries, a general and somewhat vague consensus has developed as to what symbolism should appear on the trumps, so that they may be recognized, but modern Tarot designers often depart from the traditional images of the trumps in radical ways.

Tarot for Beginners: Reversed, however, this card may actually be advising you to challenge the status quo, at least in your personal belief system. Beware of the influence of an oppressive, older person who wants you to do things their way regardless of your actual circumstances.

Reversed Cards: We first met the sixes in the Lovers card. It is there that we got a glimpse of the challenges and positive attributes of the number six. Here in the minor arcana, we see how those traits play out in everyday life. Our commitment to ourselves and others will be tested, rewarded, and challenged on a much more practical and daily way. Whether we get stuck, find ourselves needing to move, or allowing ourselves some success will depend on how the sixes show up on your cards. Relationships are part of our expansion: they test us and ground us. Here in the sixes, we see just how much.
