As a sort of public service to site visitors here, I’ve decided to start building in some free resources. The first order of business under this heading will be to write up and post a list of generally accepted TAROT CARD MEANINGS.
Full disclosure: I was born and raised in the US, and I spend virtually all of my time in the mode of the English-speaker…and this state of affairs definitely informs my Tarot practice. With that in mind, I’ll be writing up this section based on studies of the three most influential decks in this English-speaking sector of the Tarot world: the Rider-Waite-Smith deck (“RWS”), the Crowley-Harris Thoth deck (“Thoth”), and the Tarot de Marseilles deck (“TdM”). To be very clear, though, I realize – and hopefully you will, too – that these are not the only decks in the world, and that people who speak languages other than English as their primary tongues may prioritize other decks than these. No one way of doing things in this regard should ever be seen as “The Right Way.”
My opening entry for this new section just went up today, with more to follow until I’ve covered all 78 cards in a standard Tarot deck.
Once I pass that milestone, I plan to do a similar Resources page that puts forth generally accepted meanings for the Elder Futhark system of Runes, and I’ll put together yet another section to capture some commonly used meanings for the various symbols that comprise modern Astrology (including the Planets, the Signs, and the Houses).
This will all take some time, so please bear with me! And any suggestions and requests are more than welcome. Please reach me via my CONTACT page.
