The tarot to me is a series of specific symbols and representations that allow introspection of our subconscious. It is a form of therapy-not foretelling of the future. I focused on the Major Arcana, Arcana meaning Mysteries. I’m a traditionalist when it comes to the symbolism in the cards. I referenced the Visconti-Sforza deck as well as the Rider Waite deck. The beginnings of the tarot cards started with hand-painted decks by artists for royalty or higher members of society. After it became popular, card-playing was demonized by Christianity. Assuming that this and the seclusion of areas led to inconsistencies between the decks. Some of these, such as the order of the Fool and the World being either 21, 22, or 0 ends up being an everlasting loop, beautiful to contemplate. Each card has a silk velvet pull tab allowing you to read the upright and reversed explanations of the symbolism in the imagery.
