Minor Arcana Cards

The Psychic Tarot Suits

A traditional deck of Tarot consists of 78 cards (22 Major Arcana, and 56 Minor Arcana including the court cards (Kings Queens, Knights, and Pages). In this specialized deck there are only 36 Minor Arcana (nine cards per suit, with no court cards). With the court cards eliminated, we find that readings done with this deck are much more focused on SELF. Whenever a court card is drawn in a Tarot reading the querent is being shown possible influences of some person in his life... be it family, friend, work associate, or neighbor.

Find out the purpose or function of the chakra and check in with your body to see if your energy is balanced appropriately.
