What is the Major Arcana?
The major arcana are the first 22 cards in a standard tarot deck.
Each card depicts a scene. Starting with the fool and ending with The World.
As far as anyone can tell the Tarot deck started as a card game of trumps and suits.
The major arcana being the trump cards.
Michael Dummett of the UK wrote that he could not find the tarot deck used as a spiritual guide until after the 18th century.
In 1781 Antione Court de Gebelin wrote in his Le Monde primitive, a whole chapter on Tarot. He understood that the Major Arcana was a journey through life.
Today the Major Arcana is a journey through life and help you grow on your spiritual path.
It starts with the 0-card known as the fool. The fool travels through each card learning along the way until the final card number 22 the World.
If you haven’t a deck yet I encourage you to buy one and take the steps of the tarot one card at a time and enjoy the journey to self-discovery.
I will be offering a one on one class “A Journey through the Major Arcana”.
We will start as the fool and go along at your speed through the 22 cards of the Major Arcana.
