Lesson Three: The Tarot Deck - First Steps Study Guide

Chapter 4

Twenty-two out of the seventy-eight cards are the Major Arcana, numbering from zero to twenty-one. They can be called trump cards. The names on the cards can be called other names in a different deck. The Minor Arcana has four suits. For beginners, Barbara Moore tarot decks are the best to use. A popular deck is the Rider-Waite. You can be either gifted a deck or play the waiting game for one that speaks to you the most.

The Four Suits

Wands (batons, clubs, staves) ⊱ Fire, south, spirit, spring
Petacles (coins, discs, rings) ⊱ Earth, east, home, fall
Cups (chalices, grails, goblets) ⊱ Water, west, heart, summer
Swords ⊱ Air, north, mind, winter


Herb Burning ⊱ Like a gaseous potion for healing, herbs are used to aid the focus of bringing back magic to the tarot cards
Breath of Fresh Air ⊱ Magic from planets & stars are strong magic, this will recharge their magic, almost like recharging a battery
Reordering Your Deck ⊱ Most common, a ritual to focus on each card as you organize them, do it every time before & after readings
Burial ⊱ Used when all else fails to work, uses the Moon's magic which is the strongest on full Moons
