Are you ready to learn the hidden meaning of Tarot cards? Each day I will draw one card, and we will study its meaning in detail. Today we are going to look at the difference between the Major Arcana cards and the Minor Arcana. While the Minor Arcana cards reflect changes that take place in the world, the Minor Arcana allow us to see ...what is happening within ourselves. We are familiar with the phrase "As above so below" and "As within so without." The Major Arcana help us understand where we are on our individual spiritual journey, and their placement in a spread explain how we are merging our purpose with daily events. The first card in the Major Arcana is The Fool, symbolized by the number "0". The Fool represents the beginning of our journey -- he is a young fellow, eager and enthusiastic, who is ready to jump into the race. He has the stamina and the blind excitement of youth, and his raw energy is both a blessing and a curse. His eagerness is the force behind beginnings, and it is necessary to remove oneself from stagnation and false security. Yet, the Fool only has raw power on his side, and the energy he brings upon must be tamed and refined, or it can become potentially destructive and scattered. He feels energized enough to conquer the world, but before he can accomplish and manifest his plans, he must learn some important skills that will help him along the way. The Fool represents our eagerness to begin a new chapter, and when this card appears in a spread, it can mean one of two things, depending on other cards that are showing up with it: Something new is at the door, or one must walk carefully to avoid mistakes caused by lack of experience. Regardless of his placement in the spread, the Fool augurs new beginnings.
