Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Ancient astrology dealt with the seven planets (‘wanderers’) visible to the naked eye. The awareness of these seven wandering ‘stars’ gave rise to the seven-day week, each day being named after one of the visible planets: Sunday (Sun day), Monday (Moon day), Tuesday (Mars day), Wednesday (Mercury day), Thursday (Jupiter day), Friday (Venus day), and Saturday (Saturn day). The ancients included the Sun and the Moon among the planets because they wandered across the heavens. The Golden Dawn assigned seven of the major arcana cards to the seven visible ‘planets’ of antiquity.
Complete Book of Tarot: When upright, the Three of Cups depicts three friendly individuals in a happy celebration, perhaps of a good harvest. It is a time of happiness, success, favorable issue, and abundance. Why are the maidens rejoicing? Perhaps they have received good news about a project, a promotion, recovering from illness, an engagement, a wedding, or the birth of a child. Their creative juices are flowing. The harvest has been abundant and they know how to have a good time.
Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 12: The history of the tarot is fascinating, but you dont need to know it to read the cards effectively. On the other hand, learning about the origins of the ideas and symbols artists used to illustrate the cards can give you a greater sense of their meaning and place in Western culture. I enjoy understanding the evolution of ideas and historical trends, so I have included numerous comments about history throughout this text. Knowing a little about the history can keep you from falling prey to many of the false ideas about the cards that have been perpetrated over the course of time. Tarot is a fanciful and imaginative process, so its nice to keep at least one foot planted on the ground.
