The cards in this suit [Major Arcana} contain pictures that communicate directly with the image-based right brain through the use of symbols and archetypes. By bypassing words, the images on the cards were very effective at imparting certain concepts that would have been trivialized by putting them in words. Images made it possible for the Tarot to communicate with people who spoke a different language or who couldn’t read.
There are many cards in the Major Arcana that express alchemical ideas and processes: The Sun, The Moon, Temperance, The Lovers, The Magician, The Chariot, Strength —each card in the Major Arcana demonstrates a singular alchemical principle, while the procession and order of the Major Arcana represent the process of transmutation, or personal evolution.
