Major Arcana Only Readings

The traditional Tarot consists of two parts, the 22  very evocative “trump” cards, known as the Major Arcana (“arcana” means “secrets”), and the four suits, similar to playing cards, known as the Minor Arcana.  In modern Tarot readings, we usually use decks that have action scenes on all the cards, to make it easier to read the Minor Arcana.  But older decks only have scenes on the trumps.  Is it possible to read with just the Major cards?  Will the reading just focus on big issues, or will it illuminate all the subtleties of a “normal” reading?

In this fascinating and lively class, internationally renowned Tarot author, teacher and artist, Rachel Pollack, discusses and demonstrates ways of doing readings with cards from the Major Arcana only.

This short video contains an extract from the class which runs for a little over an hour.

Major Arcana Only Readings

$19.00 USD

Internationally renowned Tarot author, teacher and artist, Rachel Pollack, presents a fascinating and lively session on doing readings with cards from the Major Arcana only.

The traditional Tarot consists of two parts, the twenty-two  very evocative “trump” cards, known as the Major Arcana (“arcana” means “secrets”), and the four suits, similar to playing cards, known as the Minor Arcana.  In modern Tarot readings we usually use decks that have action scenes on all the cards, to make it easier to read the Minor Arcana.  But older decks only have scenes on the trumps.  And some very striking modern decks do not even have suits, but consist only of beautifully painted, highly symbolic Major Arcanas.  Is it possible to read with just the Major cards?  Will the reading just focus on big issues, or will it illuminate all the subtleties of a “normal” reading?

In this session Rachel briefly discusses the structure and imagery of the Major Arcana, using examples from some ancient and rare decks. She then shares various spreads she and others have developed for deep readings using only these powerful 22 images.
