The Major Arcana
There are twenty-two cards contained in the Major Arcana, all of them show images only, rather than the symbols contained in the Minor Arcana. The general consensus is that the Major Arcana exemplifies the journey of the soul towards its ultimate enlightenment, with the journey opening with the Fool and concluding with the World. All of the cards have meanings but they often contradict the images; Death for instance does not mean that someone will die, it often implies that change will come.
The Fool Free Tarot Reading
is a fresh beginning.The card contains a dog which is barking a warning at his master as he wanders aimlessly toward the edge of a precipice. He has set off on his journey with sufficient provisions which he carries on his shoulder but clearly has no idea where he is heading.
This card represents new beginnings that may or may not have been planned, it is not something to fear, rather it might be interpreted as an adventure. You may well face trials and tribulations but the outcome depends on your approach. If a person faces their challenges with optimism and energy, they are far more likely to overcome any issues with ease. If you follow your heart you are likely to find the right path and having done so will overcome any obstacles. There may be a danger of falling in love with love rather than romantic involvement, or that your lover might be unreliable and incompetent. The Fool can represent vigour and pleasure but an unwillingness to commit.
The reversed card is a warning, as the image shows, he is about to walk off a cliff, the dog is barking but his master is oblivious. This is a warning, telling us to take our responsibilities more seriously and to pay attention to our surroundings, principally if we find ourselves in new surroundings or situations. We are not
alone in this world and there is often a dog barking a warning to us, if only we would listen for it.
The Magician Free Tarot Reading
is the second card with a numerical value of one. As we see from the image he has gathered together some elements in order to cast a spell. Spell casting can be dangerous and attention to detail is necessary, otherwise the spell may not work as intended or may fail completely.
The Magician represents intelligence and communication, he is sensible and a sign that you should listen to your intuition. If you have an assignment to complete or a difficult task ahead of you this card suggests that you have all of the necessary skills but you may need to have more faith in your own abilities and trust yourself. You will succeed as long as you are flexible and communicate. In romance, communication in your relationship is particularly strong.relationship
The Magician knows that he is intelligent but this can be negative when a person has too much faith in his abilities and pays less attention that he should. We are all susceptible to using our intellect for negativity, this can be a caution against being selfish or so involved with our own issues that we fail to see the effects of our actions on others.
The High Priestess Free Tarot Reading
represents wisdom and higher callings. As we see from the image she is sitting with a book in her hands, this represents knowledge. She is not a young woman and has years of study and experience which have brought her wisdom.
The High Priestess quietly observes the world from her sanctuary. From here she perceives the root cause of the individuals’ issues. We are reminded that there are often unseen causes and hidden influences which affect us, not just the logical everyday cause and effect that we pay so much attention to. The appearance of this card can also suggest that a secret is about to be revealed.
The High Priestess reversed usually means that you may be ignoring your instincts. It could be that you are letting logic dictate your responses to predicaments that you find yourself in. Intuition is a powerful gift and should be listened to as much as logic. There are times when logic would dictate that we stop , when continuing will ultimately bring success. The appearance of this card can be a sign that we should lay aside our scepticism and listen to our intuition.
The Empress Free Tarot Reading
represents power and confidence. As we see from the image, she carries a sceptre and has a shield but no weapon. She is protective and gentle but confident as well as being a mature woman with experience.

The appearance of the Empress is generally positive and is associated with motherhood, the development of artistic talent and even the birth of a child. Being dealt this card also means that any goals that you have are likely to reach a successful conclusion.
The reversal of this card is generally negative, it might suggest that this might not be the time to work on creative projects. It may also mean that you may be too possessive in a relationship or that a female presence in your life is being troublesome. Interactions with the opposite sex, in both personal and business environments may be difficult when this card appears.
The Emperor Free Tarot Reading
represents action and resolve. As we see from the image the Emperor is a mature man who radiates authority. He is decisive and takes control of situations.
The appearance of this card shows that you have the ambition to achieve your goals. It may also suggest that you lack finesse while using your authority. This might lead to the isolation of those around you. Caution in this area would be helpful, often a simple please or thank you can make all the difference. Romantically it could suggest that you are drawn to dominant partners.
The reversed Emperor suggests that you may encounter untrustworthy people in positions of authority. This could be in the workplace or in everyday life. The way to deal with interfering officials is to remain calm and stand your ground, anger will not help. Romantically it can suggest that your partner may be behaving in a resentful or unruly way. This issue needs to be resolved calmly but firmly.
The Pope Free Tarot Reading
represents teaching and knowledge. As the image shows, people listen when he speaks and his position by nature is conservative and traditional. The Pope likes things done the way that they have always been done and exactly so, he does not like new or different things.
The appearance of this card suggests that the best way forward is to follow traditional methods and to work as part of a team rather than to follow your intuition and go it alone. Professionally it may suggest that you may be in need of advice and a pragmatic approach. It may be beneficial for you to listen to opinions that you might ordinarily disagree with.
The Reverse card is suggesting that you may be taking certain things too seriously and that a more relaxed, even bohemian approach might be more suitable in areas of difficulty.

Romantically it can suggest that your choice of partner may be ill suited to your needs.
The Lovers Free Tarot Reading
represent important events happening in your life, not simply, as you might imagine; romance. being dealt this card suggests that you may have a choice to make relating to a relationship or commitment.
The appearance of the lovers can suggest that you would like to be involved with someone who is not available. This card can also relate to business situations, a partnership or perhaps a new employee and suggests that you should give these situations some thought and remain level headed. It is human nature to want things that we can’t have but dwelling on them can lead to unhealthy obsession. Focus on goals that are achievable and accept that some things will always be out of reach.
The reverse Lovers is a sign for caution and suggests that you should carefully weigh all aspects of your circumstances before making a decision. It is a warning to be consistent rather than rash. Romantically it suggests that you might be entering a period of uncertainty and there could be misunderstandings or confusion if you allow it. It may also suggest that you or your partner may be susceptible to temptation.
The Chariot Free Tarot Reading
Represents recklessness. As we can see from the image; the chariot has no reigns and no way of steering. It might be time to pay attention to the direction you are travelling in.

This card is telling you that you know what to do, so trust yourself. It is time to seize the reigns and move forward with belief. Make your decisions confidently and cast doubt aside. Now is the time to take risks, aim high and to do what you think is right.
The reversed meaning is a warning that you may be attempting to control things that should be left alone. You may be constraining someone close to you or stifling their creativity. You are entering a period of frustration and may feel powerless and struggle to improve things. The answer may lie in allowing things to take their course rather than trying to control things.

Represents truth and justice. The image shows Lady Justice sitting with scales in one hand and a sword in the other. There is no escaping Justice, she is independent and cannot be influenced by anything other than the facts.
In modern Tarot decks Justice is known as Karma. The appearance of this card means that you are suffering now because of a decision that you made in the past. It could also be a recent mistake which you need to put right. Admitting we are wrong is difficult for everyone but nothing can change until we do. It may also be a warning that decisions you make now could have far reaching effects on your future. This is a time for clear thinking and caution.
This card suggests you may be judging someone unfairly without knowing the facts. We have all been blamed for things we didn’t do and this card advises us to think sensibly about our situation and consider the facts.

There is no reason to assume that the outcome will not be positive, it is simply a time to embrace a new and perhaps exciting future. Romantically it may suggest an end to or the beginning of a relationship.
The reversed card suggests that although change approaches, you are determined to hold on to the past. This will not work and it may be a good time to reflect on your old habits and routines to see how they have been holding you back.
