The Major Arcana cards are referred to as “keys;” they are indeed keys to the mystery of the universe, the YOU-and-I-verse that exists within our psyches. The Tarot opens the door to understanding the mysteries that have haunted man for thousands upon thousands of years, ever since the first being thought to look at the skies, and see a meaning enclosed inside a mystery…
The Major Arcana
All true modern tarot decks consist of at least twenty-two cards: the Major Arcana, which represent the fifth path to enlightenment, higher than the other four paths represented by the suits.
Arcana: noun: arcanum; plural noun: arcana
1. secrets or mysteries.
2. either of the two groups of cards in a tarot pack: the twenty-two trump cards (the major arcana ) and the fifty-six suit cards (the minor arcana ). ~www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/epiphany
In traditional tarot decks, the Major Arcana represent the laws of the universe and the principles of consciousness; it is here where most of the archetypes and the majority of the symbols in the Tarot are to be found. It is said that the Fool wanders through the other cards of the Major Arcana on his journey through life, learning from the archetypical figures that he encounters on his path.
The number of each card in the Major Arcana is very important, and this is retained in The Tarot of Creativity. Tarot scholars sometimes refer to the Major Arcana cards as “keys” that help the seeker “open the lock” on the treasure chest of arcane knowledge and access the secrets locked inside.
