Some Tarot notes
learning tools for reading the minor arcana
The minor arcana are the cards of daily life They represent the four elements, and the numerological system from one to ten that shows the full cycle of movement .
Contrary to popular belief the cards do not predict the future. They
outline the present in detail and mention the past and the POSSIBLE future. This future could change with any decision you make. It could only happen if things continue as they are right now.
