At my Meet Up group last night we were discussing the larger representations and significance of the Tarot suits. It got me thinking about spirituality and the tarot and how I see the bigger picture.
Here is my take:
The Major Arcana represent:
- The 5th Element
- Faces of God/Goddess
- Collective Consciousness
- Manifestations of Source Energy
- High Self
- Inner Body
- Worldly Matters
- Daily Life
- Physical Realm
Court Card represent:
- A blending of Major Arcana archetypal energy and the minors elemental energy.
- The personification of an unique mixture of these energies at any given times.
- They are subject to change because both archetypal and elemental energies can shift in individuals on a regular basis. We all have the power to change or evolve.
*This explains why the Swords are the most challenging and negative suit in the deck since from a spiritual perspective our ego is our greatest challenge in this reality.
