Tarot Card Meanings - The Fool

2008-05-27T19:08:18.626-07:00

Tarot Card Meanings - The FoolThis is going to be the first in a series of articles on Tarot Card meanings. I thought it would be great to start with the Major Arcana since they are without a doubt the most interesting of the cards. It is my hope that after reading this series you'll have a deeper understanding of the meaning of these cards. There is a lot more to them than just what's on the surface.Each card in the Tarot deck has multiple meanings, depending on whether the card is in its upright position or reversed. We'll be covering both positions in this series of articles.The Fool is the first card in the Major Arcana set. It is card number zero. The fool is one of the few cards in the Tarot deck that can almost be taken literally, though not quite. The card symbolizes the choices that we as human beings make in our lives. Sometimes the choices are wise and beneficial, and at other times they are foolish and destructive. But more importantly, The Fool is a card that signifies that we are at a crossroads in our life. We can choose to follow the wise path or we can follow a path that will lead us to certain destruction.In the upright position, the card itself signifies that we have not yet made that decision in our lives and thus it is time to do so. In the reverse position, there is a greater chance that the decision has already been made and in most likelihood, that decision was not the correct one.This could also signify that you are concerned about the decision that you made. You need to listen to and follow your own heart instead of listening to what others tell you to do. You need to stop and look at how things are at this present time and honestly answer if you are happy with the way things have gone.Like the rest of the Major Arcana, The Fool deals with a higher plane of existence. These cards don't deal with the trivial day to day matters of our lives. They are more spiritual in nature. So when this card falls in reverse, it is not asking you if you are content with the menial chore you performed at work or school. It is asking you if you are truly happy with the direction your life in general is going.So often we get caught up in the day to day little things. We end up forgetting what is truly important in our lives. The Fool is a reminder to us that we sometimes need to take a step back and truly evaluate where our lives are going. When this card falls in the tenth position of a Celtic Cross spread, basically what it is saying to us is that the final outcome of our question is really up to us, that we are in control of our own destiny in this matter.The Fool is probably the most deeply reflective of all the Major Arcana cards because it really makes us take a look at ourselves and the person that we are.To YOUR Divination Success,Steven WagenheimPlease visit my Squidoo Lens on the World Of The Occult located at http://www.squidoo.com/the-world-of-the-occult/ where you can learn a little bit about me and pick up some tips on just about every form of divination that there is.Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Steven_Wagenheim[...]



Tarot Card Meanings

Tarot Card Meanings

There are a lot of tarot cards, and memorizing the meaning of each is not the easiest way to learn tarot reading. Instead of memorizing each picture, you should instead understand the two divisions of the tarot deck: the major arcana and minor arcana. This should get you on your way to reading tarot cards more effectively.

The 22 major arcana cards represent things that are out of your control. These cards include the fool, magician, high priestess, empress, emperor, hierophant, lovers, chariot, strength, hermit, wheel, justice, hanged man, death, temperance, devil, tower, star, moon, sun, judgment, and world.

If you are serious about tarot reading, be ready to face endless interpretation levels in the major arcana. Major arcana cards should be taken with more weight.

The 22 major arcana cards, on the other hand, are the representation of the simpler things of everyday life. The four suits - the Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles - each symbolize a particular approach to life. The Wand is associated with the element fire, which represents masculinity.
The Cups represent the female psyche, in which emotions and spiritual experience are entities with water as the element. Swords symbolize intellect, thought and reason. The Pentacles represent the earth, which represents material things or the services of the physical world. The 16 minor arcana cards are the suits, aces, twos, threes, fours, fives, sixes, sevens, eights, nines, tens, court cards, pages, knights, queens, and kings.

Learning the real essence of the two parts of a tarot deck, which are mentioned above, is a good start in getting full tarot knowledge. In any case, it won't get you a meaningful and articulate reading if all you have done is memorize each card without learning the secrets of their true nature.

Tarot Card Meanings - The Hierophant

Tarot Card Meanings - The Hierophant

(image)
One of the most difficult cards to understand in the Tarot deck is the Hierophant. One of the main reasons is that unlike most of the other cards, such as The Magician, The Emperor and The Fool, many people don't have the slightest idea what a hierophant even is, inside or outside of the Tarot.

This makes understanding this card and putting it into context a lot more challenging. Hopefully, this article will explain The Hierophant well enough so that you end up with a pretty decent understanding of what this card is all about.Since most people don't really know what the word itself means, let's dig into the dictionary and see what we come up with.

According to the dictionary, a hierophant comes from ancient Greece and is somebody who expounds of rites of worship and sacrifice. It is also an interpreter of mysteries and esoteric principals.It might come as a surprise to you, but the meaning of this card, as it applies to the Tarot, has very little to do with the dictionary meaning. Of course that is also true with cards like the Magician. However, now that you have some frame of reference, you'll be able to at least loosely relate the card to the real world definition.

In the Tarot, The Hierophant represents somebody who can be stubborn and exasperating. This person is constantly searching for truth without realizing that the truth he is seeking is inside of himself. He's just too stubborn to realize and accept this fact. This person is totally against any changes in his life. In addition to this, the card represents somebody who is very concerned with outward appearances and likes to impress others.

This person often belongs just for the sake of belonging.In reversed position, this card represents somebody who is original and not afraid to take chances. This person is a real adventurer and has a totally open mind. This card can also represent somebody who will be willing to listen to new ideas that the subject might have.

This card can indicate that the subject should speak his mind and have the courage of his convictions. In extreme readings, this card can signify that something new and refreshing is going to come into the person's life.The Hierophant is one of those cards where the reverse position is actually positive, which further reaffirms that not all cards, when in reverse, are negative.To YOUR Divination Success

Reading Tarot Cards - Basic ConceptsTarot card readings have been around ever since the concept of divination has, they have been used primarily used for divination purposes. Divination is said to be the art of accessing information which is not usually available to people using only our five senses. Tarot cards have also been used in different ways such as: working the tree of life, divination and even spell work. For those who are starting to learn more about reading tarot cards it is often recommended to use a Waite-Rider deck because it is the easiest one to read and work with. There are other two decks of cards which can also be used toward peace three main purposes, these are called Morgan-Greer and Thoth decks.Before you use your deck of cards it is very important to personalize them for your own use, this process is also known as "keying the cards" -- this process is what ultimately allows tarot spells to work because after such a process that cards are linked to concepts and elements in the universe.Because tarot cards are said to be linked to physical things in the universe after keying and rearranging the cards you are also rearranging things in the physical universe. A tarot deck which hasn't been personalized will work just fine however, those which had been keyed will obviously be more accurate.You can also use what is called a signifier, this is a card which stands for a question or a person, it often signifies the question we want to have answered. According to recent findings regarding signifier cards, most of the people who use tarot cards for divination purposes do not use these signifier cards which represent a problem to those who want to have an accurate answer to the question, not using this card will make the reading less accurate because the answer will be given in a more holistic way instead of referring to the specific question being asked or about giving specific information about the person who resorts to this reading.When it comes to interpreting the meaning of the cards you can acquire books which I will provide the meaning to each and every card, giving a meaning to each card is something that can't be explained briefly however, you can study the cards themselves which have been printed with specific symbols that provide a concept, for instance in the Waite-Rider deck to four of spades shows a man resting over a sword, a sword often represents problems or issues a person has, the demand who rests over the sword means that the person should let to his or her issues come to rest instead of dwelling on the past.
