A childrens book of Tarot
Tarot is a kind of magical card game much like solitaire. Cards are dealt face up onto a surface in pre determined pattern. Based on the placements of the cards, a sort of story unfolds from which can be interpreted guideance or wisdom regarding whatever situation is presented to the deck before the deal.

In a full deck of Tarot cards, there are two major classifications, The Major Arcana, and the Minor Arcana. The Minor Arcana are very much like a normal deck of cards with four suits of cards having pip cards from ace through ten, and four face cards (one more than a typical deck of cards).

The Major Arcana are cards with pictures representing the 21 aspects of the universe. It is believed that these aspects encompase all significant points of human experience and wisdom (both seen and unseen). These aspects are often viewed as etherial personalties whom rule and reign over their particular domains.

When casting tarot cards, each card has a specific concept associated with it. If the card is dealt upside down, the meaning of the card in the story changes (reversing or "opposing" the card).

The following poems and images are representative of the Major Arcana of the tarot deck.
