Elements of the Psychic World: Below are some traditional interpretations of the Major Arcana, based on the Rider Waite pack. These are by no means the only set of meanings that exist for the tarot. Different traditions are followed in different countries and even between different decks, and it is universally agreed that by far the best interpretation you can give a tarot card is the one you feel and sense yourself in response to the image on the card.

Complete Book of Tarot: Finally, I should mention that for many contemporary tarot readers, the High Priestess is a symbol of the wisdom of the tarot. Originally called the Female Pope (La Papessa), this priestess represents an unorthodox, nonpatriarchal approach to knowing. In the Rider-Waite-Smith tradition, she sits in front of a body of water, signifying our emotions and the unconscious. Behind her stretches a veil that obscures the entryway to the inner world of hidden knowledge. Either side of the priestess stand light and dark pillars, suggesting that she can help us to reconcile apparently conflicting dualities. As an unorthodox wisdom figure, La Papessa offers us access to extraordinary ways of knowing, including the various occult and esoteric sciences. Her astrological symbol is the Moon, a feminine planet linked to cycles, sleep, dreams, intuition, goddesses, spellcasting, shapeshifting, and ceremonial magic.

Complete Book of Tarot: The spiteful cards myth: you can only own one deck, the one you use for reading. Keeping other decks in the house will make your preferred deck jealous, and out of spite, it wont give you good readings anymore.
