Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Unlike modern tarot readers who use reversals and complex spreads, the Golden Dawn kept all the tarot cards upright and laid them out in a row. They began by reading the sequence of cards starting from the querents significator, using a method called card counting in the direction toward which the significator was facing. This was done by assigning each card a numerical value as follows:
Creative Tarot: And then I started to see how these artists related to the tarot. Coco Chanel became the Queen of Wands, the woman who builds an empire out of her own desires. Margaret Andersons magazine came to represent the Ten of Coins to me, the little village that shares the bounty, that inspires one another and works together. Koestler came to represent the Strength card, able to withstand the most devastating of circumstances and keep his head, wait things out until the situation improves (he was released from prison), and still create something beautiful out of it.
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.
