Pithy Tarot’s Greatest Hits — The Major Arcana

September 2, 2014

So far I have posted about 600 pithy Tarot meanings here on this blog, so I thought it might be time to post some of the greatest hits from those posts. Here, then, are some of my favorites from the Major Arcana. I have chosen one per card, which was often a hard choice.
More to follow!

The Fool -- Tarot of the Masters


The Fool represents all the things you could do if you hadn’t been told by everyone that you can’t do it.
The attribution to this one is discussed in the blog post for it.


“There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” — Albert Einstein

High Priestess
The Universe is constantly talking to us. We just need to quiet our minds and listen to its wisdom.

Create whatever you will, but don’t rush it. Like a baby being born, it will come in its proper time.

Sometimes you need to (re)assert your power in a relationship or situation.

It’s not enough to believe. We must strive to become what we believe in.

You don’t choose who you fall in love with, but you do choose whether or not you let love into your life.

Grab the reins and guide your own life to success and glory. No one else is going to do it for you.

“You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.” — Bob Marley

“If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your path.” — Buddha

Wheel of Fortune
Change is the only constant in life. (Paraphrased from Heraclitus)

“Everyone loves justice in the affairs of another.” — Italian proverb

Hanged Man
Stop struggling; you’re only making things worse.

“Live each day as if it’s your last.” — Traditional

The difference between medicine and poison is dosage.

“Be careful when you fight monsters, lest you become one.” — Friedrich Nietzsche

Life begins just outside your comfort zone.

Reach for the stars, but keep your feet on the ground.

We all have blind spots where our fears lie.

“The measure of mental health is the disposition to find good everywhere.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Holding a grudge is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” — Unknown
(This is a quote about the power of forgiveness, which is the highest aspect of the Judgment card.)

World Card -- Tarot of the Masters

When we realize that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience, we will also realize our oneness with everything.
