Individual Tarot Card Meanings

For the sake of helping you learn the tarot in as complete a manner as possible we have included a section of “traditional meanings” of the cards. The problem with “traditional meanings” (other than the obvious) is that tarot scholars can disagree on any number of things and end up causing their students years of frustration and ignorance. Always trust your own instincts first. Any time some alleged expert tries to convince you that they alone know the secrets of the tarot hold on to your wallet. Be skeptical. See with your own eyes. You will have to do that when you are actually reading for clients anyway. In the meantime, here are some snippets from what you will read in the book for each card.

“Just because it’s old...”

doesn’t make it right. There is a lingering problem with the tarot that whatever someone thought 500 years ago must be more correct than what we know now. The problem with that was that 500 years ago the earth was flat, there was no North (or South) America, and cats were servants of the xian devil that caused the plague.

This kind of fundamentalist thinking is the very reason that the tarot has been laughed at by science when instead it should be studied to see why and how it works to help us develop parts of our awareness we are usually too stupefied by stress (and television) to even conceive of.

There is no room for superstition in reading the tarot, yet superstition is everywhere, with poorly taught students of the tarot going about poisoning each other’s minds with misinformation like “the tarot came from Egypt,” or “you aren’t allowed to buy your own deck,” you aren’t allowed to accept money for readings,” and “you have to cut the deck with your left hand, wrap your cards in silk buried in a sea salt pile that has never been exposed to the sun--but instead only to the moon.”

If you want to get naked and dance around your tarot cards that is your decision and you should have fun doing it. There is actually much value in being naked, and dancing, but don’t let anyone convince you into mixing magical fact with ignorant superstitions or you will only make it harder for you to develop your innate abilities and evolve to the next level of awareness.
