WHAT IS TAROT?
Tarot is a divination method which uses a deck of 78 cards. The first 22 cards are the Major Arcana, which represent life’s big lessons and changes with deep symbolism and story. The remaining 56 cards are the Minor Arcana, and just like the common playing cards are divided into four suits: Swords, Pentacles, Wands and Cups.
How do Tarot cards work?
Tarot is an intuitive and unique experience for each person. There are hundreds of different Tarot decks, spreads and layouts to choose from; so there is really no right or wrong way of starting your Tarot journey.
Whether you are in the process of choosing your first deck or studying the cards, my only advice is: Don’t overthink. Go with the flow, do what feels right.
If you are unsure about where to begin, I suggest you to pick up the Rider Waite deck. It is the most popular and classical deck with simple yet beautiful illustrations.
Below you will find my personal interpretations using the Rider-Waite tarot deck. While discovering each card, I urge you to connect with the symbolism, imagery and most importantly, your intuition.
