When I first started studying the Tarot, I didn’t see the connections that I do now. I was confused by the titles and some of the images, which seemed to present a barrier to my understanding. Realizing that my own preconceptions were the cause I redoubled my efforts to “see beyond” the image into its metaphorical, rather than historical, meaning. Then I started to see and understand the archetypes in the Major Arcana.
The lower cards do not contain the same kind of symbols and imagery. It almost seems as if the Tarot is actually two decks: the Major Arcana and the pip cards. When I focused my intuition on the cards they started to speak to me.
But the lower cards continued to mystify me.
I wondered, “Is it possible that the lower cards are as meaningful and powerful as the Major Arcana?” When I considered that the Tarot might be an ancient map for the evolution of man, the wisdom of the cards suddenly began to reveal itself to me.
