The Building Blocks of Tarot – The Major Arcana

Learn To Read The Tarot

The Tarot provides a Map of Life which is a doorway to the deepest wisdom and the most transformative spiritual mysteries.

The Tarot is perfect in its form and design, since it is a microcosm of the Universe. It integrates the qualities of the Archetypal realm, the Five Elements, Numerology and Astrology into a coherent system. Its correspondences and associations are endless - a reflection of the workings of all Creation.

A Tarot building block is a basic unit such as a symbol, number or element. Building blocks - like letters of the alphabet or bricks in a house – are combined to create a new entity. The whole is greater than the mere combination of the individual parts.

The combination and synthesis of the building blocks provides the signification of the card. Understanding how the meaning is derived allows a true comprehension of the cards and precludes learning the cards by rote.

The Building Blocks method is simple and easy, involving hardly any memorisation. This course is user friendly without losing sight of the mystery, magic and symbolic richness that the Tarot represents.

In working with building blocks we are not trying to reduce the Tarot to a facile system, nor do we seek to demystify, simplify or rationalise it. The building blocks are in themselves based in the mystery of all Creation, but are rendered “bite-sized”, making it easier to grasp in the beginning than the more complex combinations.

The Building Blocks of Tarot - The Major Arcana

The scope of the Tarot is vast, for it offers metaphysical insights, spiritual teachings and practical guidance, helping you better understand yourself and the universe.

The Tarot cards themselves make up a “Book of Floating Pages” - it is an encyclopedia of picture-archetypes that can be combined to create either a macrocosmic “Map of Life”, or to give a microcosmic reading representing your own life.

The Major Arcana is the most evocative and profound aspect of the Tarot. It is often referenced in esoteric literature and popular culture, so having a deep understanding of these often obscure archetypes is a big head start in your spiritual growth.

If you have an interest in Tarot, or perhaps are curious as to how this exquisite system works, this is an excellent starting point to discover the mystery and magic that the Tarot presents.
