Differences and similarities between Major and Minor Arcana

After all, what is the difference between the Major and Minor Arcana in the tarot?

Being ignorant when it comes to tarot , we think the tarologist is only there taking several cards and using logic from his head to predict or analyze our present and future . However this is not how it really works, the tarot has a logic and one of them is the differentiation of the cards .

In the tarot, we have 78 cards : 22 are known as ” Major Arcana ” and 56 are known as ” Minor Arcana “. Each major arcana brings with it our greatest secrets in part our fate and many issues that we avoid , but that need to be worked. The 22 major arcana are named by: The Magician, The Pope, The Empress, The Emperor, The Pope, The Lovers, The Car, Justice, The Hermit, The Wheel of Fortune, The Force, The Hangman, Death, The Temperance, The Devil, The Tower, The Star, The Moon, The Sun, The Judgment, The World and The Madman, each of these cards brings a more specific meaning and interpretation to each issue addressed.

The minor arcana provide an assessment of our attitudes and the possible paths we have to follow. Thus, they are divided into 4 suits:

•  Cups 

This suit represents our emotional side and everything that affects our feelings and emotions;

•  Sticks

This suit brings issues related to work, health and personality to the table;

•  Swords

Here, we find our emotional conflicts, our aggressiveness and the feeling of guilt;

•  Gold 

This suit brings to the fore the conclusions: the fruits that will be harvested after having dedicated so much to a certain objective.

The Minor Arcana assist us in the details and possible resolutions of a problem or situation. The Major Arcana bring us the questions that we must forget, overcome and improve. It is clear that the logic behind the tarot is much bigger and more comprehensive than what we talked about here.
