Studied in depth by Jungian psychology, when a Major Arcana Tarot Card shows in a spread, it comes to present great lessons and spiritual messages.
Formed by 78 cards, the tarot is divided into 2 main categories: The Major Arcana with 22 trumps, and the Minor Arcana with 14 cards for each suit: cups, swords, pentacles, and wands.
The Major Arcana is also divided. It presents spiritual, earthly and emotional lessons. Also, they are connected with astral energies and related to zodiac signs and each signs characteristics.
Each symbol, color, scenario, and character has its own meaning not only by itself but in combination with the following cards, and the position it occupies among the whole set of cards.
This journey will lead us to understand the spiritual lessons we must apprehend to mastery in our own history, abandoning the instinctive world, crawling out of our cave made of old ways, and learning to control our strengths to overcome our fears.
