The 78 cards of The Tarot, and in particular The Major Arcana, can provide great insight into the human psyche and the quest for enlightenment and spiritual transformation. The Major Arcana can be used on its own for purposes of spiritual development, but the four suits of the Minor Arcana (Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles) can also provide valuable insight, as each suit (like the elements they represent) has higher meanings in addition to the usual mundane interpretations.
Some keys are given for reading each card both upright and reversed, so that guidance can be sought and understood. The aim is to help you, the seeker, understand yourself and your journey in this life.
This is not for fortune telling, but of course you may do whatever you wish ;)
