The Major Arcana
These pages may take a little while to load due to the graphic content. I felt the best way to go through a deck was, to actually go through it with those of you who want to learn about Tarot so that you can see what a card means as well as read about it.
I'm going to begin with the Major Arcana and continue on with the Minor or Suit Cards.
We will be going over 22 cards as the deck I am using is the Hanson-Roberts which includes a blank card. Well the card isn't exactly blank it has an image on it but there is no set meaning for it.
I have set the pages up with the cards in groups of 5 on a page. Just click on the right button at the bottom of the page to go to the next page. The left button will take you to the last page you viewed and on consecutive pages the center button will return you to the main Tarot page.
You will notice that the cards are set up with some of their associations, as follows.

The Name of the Card

The Number of the Card

A Keyword for what the card represents

The Card's Picture

Color, Musical Note, Herb, Hebrew Word, Planet or Astrological Sign

If you would like to look at any of the cards a little closer just click on the card and it will take you to a larger image.
