How do I find my personal Major Arcana tarot cards?
I’m interested in tarot cards and have started to learn about them. I read that everyone has two personal tarot cards? One reflects their outside personality, and the other reflects their true self. I’m horrible with numbers and the directions for finding your personal Major Arcana cards in the book are confusing me. Can someone tell me how to do it? Thanks.

numerology, and since you are bad with numbers…

I told you to look behind the toilet or under the mattress, you know, where you keep the “other” stash? Geez, why do I always have to keep track of all the things that you keep losing?

I’ve been around a long time and I have never heard that anyone has two. I have heard there is always one that fits… Look through you cards and visualize whats going on in them… See what fits.. By the way the Major Arcana are pathways of the Sephira, and that card will change depending on where you are in your life.
Though, I would normally consider the High Preist as the card that best represents me, lately I have definitely been the Hermit.

How can I become more familiar with the meanings of the 72 tarot cards?
It’s a lot to memorize(I found a book with all the meanings, upright and reversed).
Would creating my deck first help in the memorizing process, or is it better to get to know the cards, then create them?
I’m hardly a beginning tarot reader, so any kind, helpful tips are welcome!
Thank you in advance!

Answer by synopsis
Most modern books on the Tarot are put together by publishers’ committees to exploit a gap in the market. The folk who write them usually know little or nothing about the history or uses of the cards.
A E Waite’s Pictorial Guide is one of the few reliable classic texts. If your book doesn’t at least list Waite in the bibliography, it probably isn’t worth bothering with.
The way to learn the symbols is to read anyone and everyone who will let you. Like everything else, there is no substitute for practice.
But remember that if you practise getting things wrong, you can become an expert at that too.
Answer by Jimbo
What do you mean ‘creating the deck’? Generally, it’s easier to remember by thinking in terms of what each number means, and what each symbol represents. The major arcana usually represent a specific person, or the person being read.
Pentacles represent earth which signify things of the material world- money, possessions.
Swords represent air, which signify thoughts.
Cups represent water which signify emotions.
And Wands represent fire which represents enthusiasm or intentions.
1, is usually the beginning of something new.
10 usually represents completion of something.
And then there’s everything in between, which I cant remember at the moment.
You can also get meanings from the pictures by understanding what the symbol is doing. The four of cups, for example, can br read a couple of ways. On one hand, it appears that he is too focused on the emotions(cups) that he has to notice that life is offering something new to him.
In another view, it can be seen that the person is serene and calm. Perhaps he realises that it is the mind, not the body that needs nourishment most.Things of the world rise and return, but the wise spirit, perfectly empty, lives unattached to things of the world, and hence, without fear.

Don’t intellectualize this too much!
Get the basic Rider Waite deck.
Look at the images. The images tell a story. Glean the meanings visually.
Then look at “The Book” for more detail.
If you can study a world language in high school with hundred of vocab words and dozens of grammar rules, learning the Tarot meanings isn’t so tough!
What materials can I use for a protection circle when i am using Tarot cards?
Hi. I am a beginner in using tarot cards and I am wondering what materials I can use when doing a protection circle. Thank you!
Answer by Rev. Lynn D.
You don’t need any materials. Just say this prayer ” Dear Heavenly Father, I ask for the protection of your great white light around my physical body and mental arena. I ask that only that which is of the highest and best come through to me. I now open the door to my psychic power.”
Then when you are done, close the psychic door.

You don’t need any kind of protection circle or protection anything when using Tarot cards, and those that claim you do know absolutely nothing about the cards!!!
