Tarot Cards have several different meanings behind them, depending on the circumstances, question(s) at hand, and the information given.
Here is a VIRTUAL DECK you can play around with – get to know the Higher Arcana and the Lower Arcana by clicking on each of the individual cards to determine their Face Meaning – as well as their Divinatory Meaning! To see and hear the scene move your cursor onto the video and click on the controls in the lower left corner of the video.
Those who are familiar with the story of Carmen, know that she does indeed meet an untimely and violent end.
The photograph on the left partially illustrates a standard 52 card deck manufactured by the US Playing Card Company, Cincinnati, Ohio.The deck was acquired in 1982. The card backs feature a mirrored sphinx with a mirrored bird in black on a blue background (bottom row, right). The deck partially pictured at the left was donated to the collection in 1980 by the owner of a playing card shop in Rome.
Twenty of the cards have a scene of a cottage on a lake at the bottom, a banner at the top, and one large Roman numeral from I to X in the center. The photo on the left is an illustration of 9 old Tarot cards from an Italian playing card catalogue.
Web surfers should be aware that there are many commercial sites on the Web devoted to explaining the supposed "mystical meaning" of the Tarot Deck - and these sites offer to provide personal "readings" for a fee - or they offer to sell new "magical" decks that are claimed to make the owner healthy, wealthy, and wise! The deck of Tarot Cards partially pictured on the left is typical of a contemporary Tarot deck.
However, as the deck is based on Byzantine concepts and imagery, The Tower illustrates one of the Empire’s legendary figures, Simeon Stylites.
This is based on an icon from St Catherine’s Monastery in Sinai which originally depicted Elijah. The Holy Fool has always had a special resonance for me ever since 1973, when he appeared on my drawing pad when I was idly doodling one evening. Three years later, the deck was complete, and I’d had the time of my life painting it!
I’ll post more about the historic Byzantine aspects of this deck shortly, as well as giving the spread I developed for the cards. I went to the launch of the Nostradamus Tarot (The Lost Tarot of Nostradamus) last night at Watkins Bookshop (Cecil Court, London).
The basic artwork was taken from a book found only recently in the Central National Library of Rome. This very early fresco by Agostino da Vaprio (born around 1457, possibly in Pavia) shows five obviously well-born (and slightly overdressed) members of the nobility playing Tarocchi, an early card game. While also giving out helpful information relating to Home Pregnancy Tests (HPT's), Ovulation Predictor Tests (OPK's), Charting your fertility and much more!

The front and back of the box have the same design as the card backs - a blue and white design with a center star (box is on the top left).
Although this is a German deck, superimposed in the top center of each picture is the international suit symbols for each card in the deck. The deck was manufactured by Carte da Gioco per Collezione, via Della Croce 16, Rome, Italy. Ten additional cards have the top banner, one small Roman numeral from XI to XV, a name printed in Italian, and a large center picture such as a house, a horse, a jester.
The game of Tarot was supposedly "invented" in Italy sometime in the mid-15th century AD, and there are early Tarot decks on display in European museums which number 80 or 90 cards. These cards, and others like them, were designed to be used to play a specific card game - Tarot. I have been using it (and the majority of people I read for have been choosing it) for the last week, and have been very pleased with how it reads.
As a very Christian society, a withdrawal from society was not only acceptable, it was lauded. When I saw the image I immediately saw it as the tarot Hermit, even though the original did not have a lantern or staff. That first image opened up a channel for me into the Otherworld, the rich archetypal place of dreams and imagination, and I have journeyed there ever since. It’s now published by Red Wheel Weiser and Connections Publishing UK, and getting very favourable feedback. He gave a talk at a UK Tarot Conference a few years ago, and made an unforgettable impression to all lucky enough to be there. In this volume were 80 watercolour images, with arcane and sometimes heretical imagery (popes and cardinals doing strange things, often to monsters). Neither the book nor the documentary had pointed out the similarity of the imagery to tarot symbolism. The shape and size of these cards show them to be tarot cards (though whether they included what we called the Majors or not is an open question). It was shown in the catalogue accompanying an exhibit of early Tarot art in 1999 at the Pinacoteca di Brera museum in Milan. I’ve used the more familiar aspect of the painting, focusing on the players and omitting the background. Carmen (portrayed by Dorothy Dandrige 1922-1965) then grabs the cards from Bailey to prove her wrong.
Eight additional cards feature colored pictures in the center of the card with a name printed in Italian at the top.
Of all the original tarot decks created in the second half of the 20th century, only one in my opinion reaches the stature on Waite-Smith or Crowley-Harris. John Matthews, however, an acknowledged expert on the tarot, picked it up immediately, and began to collect the eighty images. The first written rules of Tarocchi appear in a manuscript written by Martiano da Tortona well before 1425 (we know cards had appeared by 1377, as a sermon was preached against them in Bern that year).

There is also a reproduction in the Encyclopaedia of Tarot II (Stuart Kaplan), with a few changes – for instance, there are cards on the table in the version shown in the Encyclopaedia.
Hammerstein changed the setting from 19th century Spain to the 1940s during World War II in a Sourthern U.S.
The name of the deck and the manufacturer's name is stamped in gold on the front of the box lid. In the upper left corner of each card is a white circle containing a black number from 1 to 36. Although a large number of people no longer play the game of Tarot, they use the Tarot Deck for fortune telling purposes. Tarot decks however, continue to be popular collector's items, and so they continue to be reproduced and manufactured. For instance, the Tower (illustrated below) gives a very different take on the card – at least at first glance.
However, people kept on following him and asking for advice and healing, so he chose a taller pillar … and so on.
There are even books written about the Holy Fools of Byzantium (and Russia, which took over the mantle of orthodoxy after the Empire fell in 1453). He was not permitted to photograph the original volume, still held in the National Library of Rome, so piecing the deck together took some time. Sometimes, the cards meaning is completely different than how the card may appear on the surface. Because of their popularity, many contemporary artists continue to design new Tarot decks, or card makers continue to reproduce older decks. That was all the confirmation I needed, and the Fool and the Hermit were the first figures I painted in this deck. Hermann’s deck came out of his spirituality and his life, for the two were inseparable. Indeed, one might call it a labour of love, as John slowly collated the images to fit with the Majors, facecards and suits, and Wil Kingham began to produce the collaged backgrounds, as well as bring the original sketchy watercolours into a fit state for publication. You can’t really take the card and interpret it based on what the individual card is named or what graphics may appear on it.
A four-page booklet (in German) in the box, offers instructions for use of the deck in fortune telling, and also offers a possible interpretation of each picture. So the meaning here, as in most decks, is of illumination and power, but it also speaks of human temptation and frailty (the serpent). However, the more they worked on it, the more the whole thing fell into place, and the end result is a fitting tribute to the seer, as well as an excellent addition to the tarot. Simeon chose his pillar after a divine revelation and then found he could not avoid his destiny, or the power that others ascribed to him.
