Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: The Golden Dawn used number associations in various ways to assign meanings to the tarot cards. One of their fundamental ideas was to pair the thirty-six pip cards numbered two through ten with the thirty-six decans of the zodiac. What is a decan?
Complete Book of Tarot: When upright, the Nine of Cups indicates a period of pleasure, creativity, and enjoyment. Wishes are fulfilled and dreams come true. This is a time of material happiness and success in mundane matters. You feel particularly creative and sociable at this time. Your many blessings are cause for celebration and sharing your happiness with others.
Complete Book of Tarot: we saw in the last chapter that the modern tarot deck consists of seventy-eight playing cards in five suits: Wands (batons), Swords, Cups, Pentacles (coins, disks), and trumps (keys, major arcana). Tarot cards today are used to play card games but more commonly are used as tools for divination. The structure of the current tarot deck derives from the ordinary playing cards (naibs, naipes) the Arabs brought to Spain some seven hundred years ago. The practice of playing games with cards was well-established on the Iberian Peninsula by the year 1375 CE.

Complete Book of Tarot: A fundamental principle is that a cards essential meaning does not change simply because it appears upside down. What does change is the way in which you perceive the card as opposed to what the card essentially signifies. If you stand on your head, the room you occupy is still the same room. Your perception of your surroundings, however, becomes altered in the process. In other words, the room stays the same but you experience it differently.
