Arches on the Tarot Cards

Some symbols on the cards tend to go deeper then others. In the case of the arches, you (may) find that they are more than just a pile of rocks in the background.

Tips for Reading the Kings

If you’re like most people that start out learning about Tarot, reading the Kings and Queens (or for that matter any court card) may present some challenges.

Let’s talk about infinity. I can remember learning, at a very young age, that no matter how high someone can count, there always exists a number just beyond the number you choose.

A couple days ago, when listening to someone else talk about Tarot, an idea come to me that the Major Arcana might be related to the astrology house system and that it might have a loose association with the astrology signs as seen through the traditional astrology wheel.

Why are their Lilies on the Tarot Cards?

It’s a bit unusual to get so much snow in the Seattle area, but this year everything is slowing down as people are forced to stop what they’re doing and watch their step.
