Tarot reading[edit]

This tarot deck is made up of 56 cards from the Minor Arcana (Ace, 2-10, Page, Knight, Queen, King), and 22 cards from the Major Arcana (The Magician, Hanged Man, Tower, Death, etc.). For the suits, it uses Staves, Coins, Cups, and Swords.

The readings are meant for you to interpret them as you will, but it follows the same order every time (different cards and different interpretations are read). Some of the following cards have parentheses next to them; these are generalized interpretations of what the card describes:

  1. You (no reading, just a card)
  2. Significator
  3. Crossing
  4. Crowning
  5. Base of the matter (presently, why things are)
  6. Past influences (the way you once were or certain things that affected you)
  7. Forthcoming influences (the way you will be in the future or things that will affect you)
  8. Where one finds oneself (your comfort zone, what you do, your goal in life, where your efforts are put forth)
  9. Views of others (how others view you)
  10. Hopes and fears (how you feel now or will feel)
  11. Final outcome (conclusion)
