Tarot is a set of 78 cards that are used to help people gain insight into their lives and the potential future. A tarot deck has two parts: the major arcana and the minor arcana. There are 22 cards in the major arcana, and these cards are said to contain the most important teachings of the tarot. They represent pivotal moments and turning points in the story of your life. Each tarot card has its own unique meaning, and together they tell a story that can help you navigate your path through life and the situations that arise along the way. The major arcana cards can be interpreted in different ways, depending on the question you’re asking and the situation you are in.
In the articles below, I explain the different meanings of each Major Arcana card in great detail and discuss how you can use them in your own life. I hope you find this information helpful!
