General Meanings Major Arcana

Major Arcana cards show up when things are happening that pull us towards a certain destiny or path. Many Major Arcana cards in a reading is often a sign that our Spirit Guides and Angels are working behind the scenes to set everything up for us so that we can live the lives we are destined to live.

The minor arcana cards do not carry the same weight, but they are still important. They chart the ups and downs of daily life and register changes in feelings and thoughts. These dramas are gripping while they occur, but they pass with time as new concerns take their place.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books

Complete Book of Tarot
Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: Waite (1911): A hoodwinked female figure balances two swords upon her shoulders. Divinatory Meanings: Conformity and the equipoise which it suggests, courage, friendship, concord in a state of arms; another reading gives tenderness, affection, intimacy. The suggestion of harmony and other favorable readings must be considered in a qualified manner, as Swords generally are not symbolical of beneficent forces in human affairs. (R) Imposture, falsehood, duplicity, disloyalty.

Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: The element Earth has no major arcana card assigned to it, perhaps because it represents the entire material universe in which we learn the lessons of the major arcana.

Tarot Triumphs: The Fool’s Mirror diviner is willing to use all the cards in the Major Arcana when the context is appropriate. The twenty-two Trumps are an entity, just as all the signs of the zodiac are contained in an astrological horoscope. They each have their part to play in forming the picture of the moment. It is the way they are arranged that defines what that picture may be.
