Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Each major arcana card is assigned to one of the four elements. These assignments can be found in the individual descriptions of the cards in chapter on the major arcana. To interpret tarot layouts, the Golden Dawn used a combination of card counting together with a method of assessing the interactions of the four elements to judge the dignity or relative importance of each card in the spread. Lets begin by taking a look at card counting.
Reversed Cards: At the beginning of this section, I discussed how the nine in numerology is the end of a cycle. The Nine of Coins of The Ravens Prophecy Tarot features only a fully bloomed rose and could not capture this energy any more perfectly. But what happens next? Once something has bloomed, it has nowhere else to go. The growing is done, and the only thing left is to be transformed by death. This is a very real fear for a lot of people; if they allow themselves success or happiness or even love, once it is obtained, there will be nothing left but to die. This fear can be so strong that it acts as the biggest self-destruct button you have ever created! Be mindful when this card shows up in the shadow aspect.
Complete Book of Tarot: When the French conquered Milan and the Piedmont of northern Italy in 1499, they brought the Italian game of trionfi back with them to southern France. The tarot became popular in the city of Marseille, which grew into a major center of playing card manufacture in Europe. The tarot decks produced there, for obvious reasons, became known as the Tarot of Marseille. The pattern and arrangement of the Marseilles seventy-eight cards became the standard against which later decks would be measured. The Tarot of Marseille became the most widely used deck in non-English-speaking countries.

Complete Book of Tarot: The Ten of Cups (Water, cold + wet) is flanked by a Wand (Fire, hot + dry) on the left and a Sword (Air, hot + wet) on the right. The ‘dry’ of the Wand cancels the ‘wet’ of the Sword, leaving two excess ‘hots’ surrounding the central card. These two excess ‘hots’ cancel the ‘cold’ of the Ten of Cups, leaving ‘hot + wet’ in the center of the triplet. The result is that the Ten of Cups now behaves more like the Ten of Swords (hot + wet) so that the normal pleasure of the Ten of Cups becomes painful to achieve (Ten of Swords). In other words, the Ten of Cups retains its essential happy meaning but the pain and suffering of Swords (hot + wet) modifies that happiness.
