The fate and fortune of us all have been determined long time ago, although our own lives appear to be uncertain and our destiny full of surprising and unexpected turns. We cannot know all of our destiny, because it is concealed from us, nor we could ever do much to change it.
However, there are ways to see into it and get a glimpse of our future.
Through the practice and art of divination, we could reveal things hidden from the most. While divination will not inform us on the exact course of events that would take place in our individual lives, it could tell us about potentials and possibilities that are the likeliest to happen. Divination deals with both higher and lesser plan.
While officially acknowledged approaches surely can contribute to our understanding of the life as it is, they cannot actually tell much about individual experiences. Divination, such as tarot, could be deeply personal and each reading is a unique story. A master tarot reader have to know not only the meaning of the cards, but also to understand the nature of human beings.
For this reason, divination could be very specific when it comes to personal predictions and readings, such as tarot. The practitioner has to be familiar with symbolical meanings and to know how to see them and interpret as a complex of meanings. Tarot is based on a great knowledge of symbols occurring in various alternative teachings.
Tarot Suits Basics
Tarot suits originate from medieval times when they were used for playing card games; maybe you know of tarok, for example. However, later in time, those cards have been gradually introduced into the domain of occult studies, esoteric practices and more. No wonder, if you just think of their curious imagery. Each card is carefully illustrated and loaded with mystic symbolism.
Each tarot card represents an allegorical scene, a personification, archetypes and tons of very specific symbols that could be seen also in alchemy, Zodiac, mythology and elsewhere. The symbols featured on tarot cards are not randomly chosen, nor the imagery was purely decorative.
The standard pattern known is the famous Tarot de Marseille. The most widely known and used design is that of Rider-Waite. When it comes to organization of the suits, tarot decks are composed of two greater parts, the Major and the Minor Arcana.
The first part, Major Arcana is composed of twenty two cards representing archetypical meanings and referring to the major or bigger plan that reflects in our individual lives. The other part is known as the Minor or the Lesser Arcana, because it describes the more common aspect of life, everyday situations and circumstances, persons occurring in one’s life and much more.
This is the larger part of the deck, consisting of four minor suits, named after the symbols they characteristically feature. The four suits mentioned are usually known as Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles. Each of these has its own faculty, relates to a specific class and an essential element.
