Understanding the Meaning of Tarot Cards: The Major Arcana
Major Arcana Tarot Cards Understanding the meaning of Tarot cards in the Major Arcana is not difficult, if you first understand what Tarot cards really are. Tarot cards are primarily a set of 78 illustrated cards, each of which helps psychics gain an insight into the past and present lives of people, offer counsel and even foretell the future. It is also important to note that the Tarot is used as a means to reveal everyday experiences, common to most people as well as other major events in their lives, but it cannot create them. 

For understanding the meaning of Tarot cards, you must know the relevance of the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana in the Tarot. The typical Tarot deck has 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Minor Arcana cards. The Major Arcana cards foretell major events in one's life as opposed to cards in the Minor Arcana, which reveal the everyday experiences, or vicissitudes, in life.

The meanings revealed by the 22 cards in the Major Arcana should not be taken lightly. For example, if a person picks a Major Arcana card during a reading, the meanings of other cards picked will be trumped and its meaning will prevail. Alternatively, if a person picks three or more Major Arcana cards in a reading, it would reveal forthcoming events beyond one's control and thereby, the event is left to destiny.




Understanding the meaning of Tarot cards in the Major Arcana must include an insight into the interpretations of the symbols and illustrations on each card. Here are brief descriptions.

CHARIOT - Represents turmoil, influence, journeys and vengeance.

DEATH - Suspension or bad luck.

DEVIL - Weird or strange things, destruction and controversy.

EMPEROR - Leadership, confidence and wealth.

EMPRESS - Evolution, action and achievement.

FOOL - Forthcoming events and decisions one makes.

HIGH PRIESTESS - Virtue, knowledge and wisdom.

HIEROPHANT - Compassion or mercy.

HANGED MAN - Sacrifice or reversals.

HERMIT - Isolation, prudence and caution.

JUSTICE - Harmony, equality and balance.

JUDGEMENT - Betterment or rejuvenation.

LOVERS - Love, optimism and harmony.

MAGICIAN - Security, power and imagination.

MOON - Disgrace, trickery and deception.

SUN - Joyful events, happiness and success.

STAR - Inspiration, hope and faith.

STRENGTH - Conviction, energy and ability.

TEMPERANCE - Patience, moderation and confidence.

TOWER - Loss or sudden change.

WHEELS OF FORTUNE - Gains, omens and destiny.

WORLD - Triumph, perfection and completion.

Finally, for understanding the meaning of Tarot cards, you must know that there is nothing magical, evil or psychic about the Tarot. Instead, the Tarot is empowered by the faith and belief of the exponents using this medium and those of the people who seek their advice. If you face some problems in life or simply wish to know more about what the future holds for you, there is no harm in giving Tarot cards a try. However, understanding the meaning of Tarot cards, particularly in the Major Arcana, should be your first task. Then complete a reading and see what the future holds for you.
