Tarot Reading: An Introduction To The Major Arcana

As we discussed, Tarot cards have been around since the 15th century in Europe. Although originally designed for playing card games, mystics soon realized the intricate decks held a divinatory power far exceeding their initial intended purpose. While there are many variations of the original deck out there, a standard deck is comprised of 78 cards with the same essential elements.


The Fundamentals

Each deck has four suits, although the names vary by deck: coins (pentacles/diamonds), wands (staves/rods/clubs), cups (goblets/hearts), and swords (spades). These suits are broken down into numbered pip cards ranging from 1-10 and four face cards: Jack/Knave, Knight, Queen, and King. In total, these cards amount to 56 cards, which are collectively known as the Minor Arcana.


Each deck also has 22 cards that depict a prophetic symbol or scene that occur outside of the suits. These 22 cards, known as the Major Arcana, create significant shifts and pulls within a reading, and are considered to have extensive meaning when they enter one’s spread. As with anything allegorical, the Major Arcana can be interpreted in a number of ways by your psychic, depending on the: layout, surrounding cards, and particular intention of one’s reading. However, each of 22 Major Arcana have a general symbolism attached.

The Major Arcana: Fundamental Meanings

To get you better acquainted with the Major Arcana, here are some key terms that exemplify some different interpretations of each of these deeply powerful cards:


0. The Fool—purity, naivety, fresh start, faith

I. The Magician—improvement, knowledge, insight, motivation

II. The High Priestess—intuition, lust, subconscious intent

III. The Empress—fertility, feminine power, passion, wisdom

Leadership is key with this combination. Since you both are aggressive and both want the same things, working together in harmony is the lesson here.

Numerology: Power & Master Numbers

This time we are going to talk about the three Power numbers otherwise called the Master numbers 11-22 and 33.

The Master Numbers

We do not break these numbers down to a single digit. We refer to them as 11/2, 22/4, and 33/6 because they contain aspects of their single digit counterpart.


We already talked about how elevens have exceptionally high levels of intuition and spirituality. These are the people who are the guides of mankind. They guide us into lives of compassion and awareness. The eleven also has aspects of the number 2 which includes charisma and leadership. The number two is a duality of intuition and inner conflict. The negative side of this is that not many elevens live up to this great responsibility. They are shy and have a lot of nervous energy. This can give way to fear and self-doubt.

Elevens make great teachers, artistic performers and social workers.


Twenty-two is not only the most powerful of all numbers but the most successful. The number 22 encompasses the all or nothing. Twenty-two’s can become the masters of anything they are committed to or they become lazy drifters. Remember, 22 are double 11 and they have the practical aspects of 4. Four’s express themselves best in the material world. What a great combination! They possess an immense potential to achieve with intense productivity. The number twenty-two is rare occurring in a small percent of the population.

Twenty two’s make great leaders in all aspects of life, artists, diplomats and architects.


The number 33/6 is not concerned with self-advancement. It is all about doing well for mankind. This brings with it great responsibilities and leadership skills. These people are all about serving and helping the largest number of people. The down side of this is their being able to discern where, when and whom to help or they become overwhelmed. Remember, 33 combines 11 and 22 all of which are rare numbers. 33/6 also encompasses the number 6 which is about responsibility especially to others. It also represents a take charge attitude along with loyalty. There are always two sides to every number. The negative side to 33 is to become too focused on your own agenda and to care less of others. People born under 33 make great spiritual leaders, teachers and artists.
