Tarot. So symbolically delicious. A tool of divination with roots going
back hundreds of years, as well as a set of archetypes used to evoke similar
personas from the collective unconciousness. Here we'll look at the
symbolism of the major arcana of the Tarot in general, as well as how each
card relates to its user's particular foibles.
A note on the tarot interpretations below: Alright - so here's the deal. If you don't know anything about tarot this may not make sense to you, but bear with me. There are many ways to interpret the symbolism of each tarot card, and no two readers will see the cards exactly alike. The interpretations listed in here are a synthesis of common elements found in interpretations by several major authorities as found in the Dictionary of the Tarot (published in 1972). These include the Rider-Waite deck, which is often considered the standard, as well at Allistair Crowley's Book of Thoth, the Golden Dawn, Grey, and others. No two sites on the tarot are likely to describe the cards in exactly the same manner. So if you're a rabid Crowley/MissCleo/whoever fan and disagree.. please don't hurt me? I'm too young to die a non-archetypal death.
