Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: The Ten of Cups shows a happy family enjoying life in secure circumstances. Unlike the Devil card (which focuses almost exclusively on self-interest and material lusts), the Ten of Cups displays the joy of sharing in close personal relationships. As the last card in the spread, the Ten of Cups suggests that, in the end, the tarot can help us to establish more loving relationships. The Golden Dawn associated this card with the warlike planet Mars, suggesting that the support of close personal relationships can help us weather the stresses and conflicts of daily life.
Creative Tarot: Now, coincidence can be seen as being meaningful or not. Certainly Carl Jungwho was a great fan of the tarot and astrologywould see coincidence as meaningful. It is our unconscious guiding our hands; it is an outer reflection of our inner state. He called it synchronicity, or meaningful coincidence. Synchronicity can be explained a bit like this: You know how sometimes you are thinking all day long of someone you havent heard from in years, and then that person emails or calls you? That is a meaningful coincidence. It wasnt the power of our thoughts that caused him or her to call us; the coincidence is that both you and this person were moved simultaneously to think of the other, like some impulse springing up from the memory banks.
Complete Book of Tarot: I will revere those who taught me the art of tarot; and I will impart all my acquirement, instructions, and whatever I know to all my pupils, who likewise shall bind and tie themselves by a professional oath.

Tarot Triumphs: Three makes a situation. If you take three Tarot cards, either for study or for a reading, you have the essence of a situation with a dynamic. One card simply is; two cards either oppose or unite with each other; but three cards give insight into the unique mix and interplay of a situation.
