Tarot cards major arcana meaning

Whether you are learning the Tarot card meanings for the first time or you are already a seasoned Tarot expert, using Tarot cheatsheets and Tarot keyword charts can turbo-charge your Tarot card reading ability. Creating your own Tarot card cheatsheets can require a considerable time investment, particularly as you work through each of the 78 Tarot cards.
For Tarot newbies, preparing your own Tarot card cheatsheets helps you become instantly familiar with each of the Tarot cards. For Tarot experts, creating your own Tarot card keywords is an excellent way to refresh your memory of each card and perhaps even learn something you didn’t already know about a particular card. I have been working on developing my own Tarot cheatsheets as part of my new Tarot eBook (due to be released mid- to late-2011) and have found the process to be immensely beneficial in further developing my understanding of each card.
Choose whatever groupings make sense to you and that will be easy to refer to as you interpret each Tarot reading. Next, create a Tarot cheatsheet template so that you can easily populate it with your selected Tarot keywords. In your template, you may want to include Tarot card images, numerological or astrological associations and even hyperlinks or page references to your favourite Tarot card meaning websites or books in case you want to review more detailed Tarot card meanings. Once you have exhausted your options, then review your list and select 3-4 keywords or phrases that collectively represent your ideas. Continue to work through each Tarot card until you have built your very own Tarot cheatsheet. You may also like to wait another week or two, just in case you have new ideas on what keywords to include. A rook symbolises journey and passage, moving forward and making progress at a slow and steady pace. Just read your newsletter on cheatsheets and also on the 7 of swords, I had thought that the keywords were deception and betrayal, however ‘getting away with something’ can be positive?
I drew this card when I was future progressing to a job contract I saw myself creating where my co-workers were throwing me what looked like a surprise birthday party. I’m a professional Tarot reader & teacher, intuitive business coach and spiritual entrepreneur. I'm here to help you read Tarot with confidence and transform your life and others' through Tarot. How predictions are done by classical astrology and the complete horoscope, with many examples.
This book shows you what your horoscope says about your health, according to the old tradition of medical astrology.
Qi, prana, spirit, ruach, pneuma, and many other life forces around the world explained and compared, by Stefan Stenudd. The hermit might find out plenty about himself and what goes on in his own mind, when avoiding the company of others. On the Tarot card, the lantern in the hand of the Hermit and the dim blue background suggest night.
The variation from the conventional models in this card is only that the lamp is not enveloped partially in the mantle of its bearer, who blends the idea of the Ancient of Days with the Light of the World It is a star which shines in the lantern.
It is further a card which is understood quite incorrectly when it is connected with the idea of occult isolation, as the protection of personal magnetism against admixture.
If you want to deepen your intuitive connection with the Tarot cards and ultimately become a better Tarot reader, then this is for you. The Moon reversed indicates that you have recently experienced a time of self-deception, illusion, fears and anxiety but these negative energies are beginning to subside. Often, the reversal of this Major Arcana card indicates a need to bring your attention and energy within, so that you can effectively master the spiritual lesson contained in this card. The major arcana consists of 22 cards and is a representation of the many different stages the soul travels while living in the physical body. Temperance indicates that you are learning to bring about balance, patience and moderation in your life. Temperance reversed reflects a time when something is out of balance, in conflict or excessive, and is therefore creating stress and tension in your life. Using your own Tarot card meanings cheatsheet is much faster than having to stop with each card to consult the booklet that came with your deck.
Once you have created the cheatsheet, you then have a quick-reference card which you can easily refer to when you are doing your Tarot readings. Plus, if you start to work through the keywords for different types of readings, Tarot decks or spreads, you expand your Tarot knowledge even further and it proves to be a very valuable exercise. It is also a fun challenge to relate each Tarot card to different scenarios such as romance, career, and spirituality. If you are just starting out with learning the Tarot, then start with general keywords before moving on to more advanced categories. You could use a table format in Word or Excel, create a hand-written cheatsheet, or even use a mind map such as the FreeMind mind mapping tool (I LOVE this free mind mapping tool for its flexibility and effectiveness). Once you are happy with the final product, print out your new Tarot cheatsheet, laminate it and keep it with your Tarot cards for a quick-reference tool. Yet, there is often a lot more beneath the surface that you can get into when you feel confident enough to move past simply using keywords.
In addition to fiction, I've written books about the Tarot, astrology and other metaphysical traditions.
You learn what the planets, the Zodiac signs and the other ingredients of the horoscope reveal about many health issues. What we discover in our loneliness becomes real when we share it with others and thereby discover that there's so much we have in common. To con­template what we have been through and what we can expect in the future, to heal from emotional wounds, or simply to get some rest. The Hermit, as he is termed in common parlance, stands next on the list; he is also the Capuchin, and in more philosophical language the Sage. I have said that this is a card of attainment, and to extend this conception the figure is seen holding up his beacon on an eminence. The Moon provides light as a reflection of the Sun, yet this light is dim, uncertain, and only vaguely illuminates our path as we journey toward higher consciousness.
You may have also been dealing with some deeper emotional issues that have previously been sitting beneath the surface. The angel is actually a hermaphrodite (the child of Hermes and Aphrodite), showing a balance between the genders. You have been able to take the middle road, avoiding extremes and maintaining a great sense of calm in your life.

Look to the other cards in the reading to understand what is out of balance or contributing to this feeling. So, in this post, I want to share with you some tips and techniques on how you can create your very own Tarot card meanings cheatsheet.
This is so much faster than having to flick through all of your favourite Tarot card meanings books and websites to find the right meaning.
I also started collecting definitions from various Tarot readers on top of the traditional Rider-Waite descriptions.
It rarely applies to the outside world, so the scope of any wisdom reached is limited, indeed. Indeed, the self-discovery one does on one's own is like a dream, fading away quickly when one opens one's eyes. He is said to be in search of that Truth which is located far off in the sequence, and of justice which has preceded him on the way.
Therefore the Hermit is not, as Court de Gebelin explained, a wise man in search of truth and justice; nor is he, as a later explanation proposes, an especial example of experience. It has been adopted by the French Order of Martinism and some of us have heard a great deal of the Silent and Unknown Philosophy enveloped by his mantle from the knowledge of the profane.
Several spreads are introduced, as well as the meanings of all the 78 cards and their pictures. The pool at the base of the card represents the subconscious mind and the crayfish that crawls out of the pool symbolises the early stages of consciousness unfolding. While this has created some discomfort and turmoil as you deal with these deeper issues, you are starting to feel as if a weight has been lifted and that you can be less fearful and anxious about your life situation. If you're ready to get up close and personal with the Tarot cards and ultimately become a more intuitive Tarot reader, you'll love Soul Meditations: A Journey Through the Major Arcana. Since our true selves is the soul, and the body is a vehicle for the soul to experience this world; the major arcana symbolize our journey as seen by the soul.
The angel has one foot on dry land, representative of the material world, and one foot in the water, representative of the subconscious. You have learned to keep calm in situations of great stress or anxiety, and you give the impression of being a swan, paddling madly underneath the water but appearing so graceful and elegant on the surface. Temperance reversed can also be a lead indicator that, were you to follow a certain path, you would create imbalance in the situation. It's magical voodoo, not actually anything that means anything.That's the point I was making. The dude earned his house 5 points today with his astute observations and on-point responses to challengers. It's not chosen as a wish of separating oneself from fellow human beings, but for a certain purpose where being alone is instrumental. You go inwards to learn about yourself, but you have to go outside to learn anything about the world and your place in it. We have so much in common that wherever we go, even inside our minds, others have done the same and discovered the same. Also, it gives many examples of symbolic and allegorical imagery within and beyond the Tarot.
This creature also represents the often disturbing images that appear from our inner depths, just as the dog and wolf at the beginning of the path represent the tamed and the wild aspects of our minds.
Jung, and is a part of the unconscious mind consisting of repressed weaknesses, shortcomings and instincts.
You are beginning to work through your inner fears and anxieties, understanding the impact that these have on your life and how you can eventually free yourself from these limiting beliefs.
This soulful program includes 22 guided meditations with each of the Major Arcana cards, leading to deep and profound insights as to how you can maximise the potential of this Tarot card. In this position, she also represents the need to ‘test the waters’ before jumping headfirst into unknown circumstances.
You do not let things get to you, and you have found a place of peace where you can put things into perspective when things get hectic.
If you are still very new to Tarot, read through a couple of different books or websites and look for common words or themes in the card meaning interpretations. It is said also that his lantern contains the Light of Occult Science and that his staff is a Magic Wand.
It did not refer to the intended concealment of the Instituted Mysteries, much less of their substitutes, but - like the card itself - to the truth that the Divine Mysteries secure their own protection from those who are unprepared.
This book will help you find your own intuitive way of making inspired Tarot card readings.
The path leads between two towers into the mountains in the distance, showing the way to the unconsciousness. Their energies are more intense than the minor arcana cards.  The major arcana are direct channels to the highest spiritual energy in its purest form, it one channel this energy correctly they can experience all the positive aspects of the major arcana, and this is express as the positive experiences on the earthly plane, such as love, money, success and good health.
Here she tempers the whimsical flight of the Fool who jumps without giving a second thought. Your respect for balance and tranquillity is what will help you to achieve and experience fulfilment in your life.
Therefore, the experience of one person, no matter how internal, has some relevance to all others.
These interpretations are comparable in every respect to the divinatory and fortune-telling meanings with which I shall have to deal in their turn.
The astrological sign associated with this card is Pisces – psychic, receptive and mysterious. According to Jung, the shadow, in being instinctive and irrational, is prone to projection, turning a personal inferiority into a perceived moral deficiency in someone else. A reversed Moon may indicate a fundamental unhappiness with your present situation but also confusion over what else you could do and what you really want to do. The triangle inside the square on her robe represents the female being protected by natural law. Your temperament will be well balanced and you demonstrate good management and balance in your outlook on life. The diabolism of both is that they are true after their own manner, but that they miss all the high things to which the Greater Arcana should be allocated.
Thus the Moon calls your attention to your shadow, becoming consciously aware of any tendencies to project fear and anxiety onto your external surroundings, and turning it around into more positive and constructive energy. It may be that you believe that what you really want to do with your life is impractical or unrealistic, or your past experiences in life have convinced you that you are stuck with what you have and it is too late to change now.

The major arcana unfold the various secrets of the inner world and the cosmic, such as understanding and dealing with the death or major change in both the physical and spiritual world. This is a time when you need to reflect on what changes are necessary in your life to create greater purpose and fulfilment. It is as if a man who knows in his heart that all roads lead to the heights, and that God is at the great height of all, should choose the way of perdition or the way of folly as the path of his own attainment. The major arcana tarot cards can also reveal psychological impressions that can influence your thoughts and actions.
Return to the energy of the Death card to understand what you need to leave behind you in the past and what changes you need to embrace in the future.
Eliphas Levi has allocated this card to Prudence, but in so doing he has been actuated by the wish to fill a gap which would otherwise occur in the symbolism. To overcome this, it is essential to confront your innermost fears and assumptions to gain self-confidence and direction.
In the physical world the major arcana represent more permanent conditions in one’s life whereas the minor arcana represent temporary conditions. People you are dealing with are proving to be uncooperative or you may feel as though your interests are in conflict or competition with each other.
The four cardinal virtues are necessary to an idealogical sequence like the Trumps Major, but they must not be taken only in that first sense which exists for the use and consolation of him who in these days of halfpenny journalism is called the man in the street. You need to believe in yourself and know that it is possible to create balance in your life. The water flowing between them is actually going from the lower cup to the higher one, signifying rising from a lower plane to a higher one.
In their proper understanding they are the correlatives of the counsels of perfection when these have been similarly re-expressed, and they read as follows: (a) Transcendental justice, the counter-equilibrium of the scales, when they have been overweighted so that they dip heavily on the side of God. You may also find that your dreams provide you with important clues as to what direction you need to take. The temperate individual mixes the opposites and finds a balance in life by avoiding extremes. The corresponding counsel is to use loaded dice when you play for high stakes with Diabolus. The astrological sign is Sagittarius, the teacher of truth, enthusiasm, tolerance and beauty.
The Moon reversed can highlight that you are in a more psychic and intuitive phase than usual, however the feelings that you are getting may be confusing and easily misinterpreted. Unresolved conflicts in both of you have yet to be expressed clearly, indeed you may not be conscious of them, although you are aware that something is wrong. It may be that when you draw Tarot cards for yourself and come up with one interpretation, you then draw them again, only to see something completely different! The corresponding counsel is to drink only of new wine in the Kingdom of the Father, because God is all in all. You are able to work in harmony with others and there is a heightened level of co-operation in your activities with others.
In the beginning one of you was dominant, now the other seeks to take control of the union. The axiom is that man being a reasonable being must get intoxicated with God; the imputed case in point is Spinoza. Take note of them and perhaps come back to them later when you are feeling clearer about your situation. An old fashioned argument may be necessary to clear the air and establish new ground rules. Vigilance and clear perception will be necessary to find that which is hidden before it is too late. There is a beautiful synergy at work that leverages the right mix of talents, experiences, abilities and skills. The corresponding counsel is that a man must not spare himself even in the presence of death, but he must be certain that his sacrifice shall be-of any open course-the best that will ensure his end. If other cards in the reading are negative, then the Moon shows that not all is as wonderful as you would think and there are still hidden forces at play that may unravel your success.
The axiom is that the strength which is raised to such a degree that a man dares lose himself shall shew him how God is found, and as to such refuge - dare therefore and learn.
You may be idealising the situation, and ignoring the fact that potential for failure exists among success. If the other cards are generally positive, then the Moon suggests that you are letting your imagination run away with you, and that things are not nearly as bad as they seem.
It is a doctrine of divine parsimony and conservation of energy, because of the stress, the terror and the manifest impertinences of this life. Temperance can also reflect a period of self-evaluation in order to re-examine your life priorities. The corresponding counsel is that true prudence is concerned with the one thing needful, and the axiom is: Waste not, want not. You are now seeking a much greater balance between your inner and outer selves, searching for a higher meaning and purpose in life. Oftentimes, the Moon appears in a reading when you are not sure of your destination, or even of the path you are travelling but you travel nonetheless. Throughout this transition, you may also experience a clash between the old and the new you, sometimes feeling confused about which direction you ought to take and what is really important to you. You may have lost your way and are now left to walk in the dark, guided only by your inner light and intuition.
You will evaluate seclusion, detachment and retreats as methods for accomplishing great things. You need to go on without a clear picture of where you are, where you are going or where you have been.
The Moon is a card of intuition and psychic forces, so let go of your conscious mental blocks or negative self-talk, and allow your intuition to guide you.
Your dreams, intuitions, and inner promptings lead you forward toward higher levels of understanding if you listen carefully and use your judgement to help interpret the veiled messages of the unconscious. Not only will the way forward be revealed but in many cases you will learn lessons about yourself that will be valuable in later journeys.
