Hi guysss !

Here's an article I took a long time to prepare and write, with all my heart. I wanted an aesthetic to represent at best the Major Arcana of tarot, it took me some time to choose images. Also, I've tried to put some key words for you to understand the energy of each card.

Maybe it will be a first step in the tarot world for some of you guys, I hope it will catch your attention ! Just for some explanations : there are 78 cards in tarot, composed of 22 Major Arcana - the most "powerful" when they appear, strong and important messages coming, often talking about a present situation, help to understand deeply the whole reading - the rest of the cards are Minor Arcana which give a lot of details on the situation or the question asked. If you're already experimented, just enjoy :)

Also : I don't read the upright and reverse positions, it cuts my intuition. I determine if the card talks about the "positive side" or the "dark side" (or even both) of a situation by intuition or just by asking an oriented question (for example litteraly "what are the bad sides of this situation ?")
