    Comparing The Emperor & The Hierophant     We have already compared The Empress and The High Priestess. This month, we will return to the Major Arcana, and compare The Emperor and The Hierophant. Before we begin breaking them down, let’s define and remind ourselves of some terms. There are 22 Major Arcana cards in a Tarot deck, with numbers from 0 to 21; the Majors usually deal with broader and more far-reaching life experience issues, archetypes that are easy for us to identify with and connect with at some point in our lives. An archetype (pronounced “ark eh type”) is a generic, idealized model of a person, an object,…

    Comparing the Aces     Let’s shake things up a bit this month, and talk about the four Aces and their connections to each other. Aces are different from the other Minors, as they are seen as being the seeds of their suit and element, rather than the manifestation of their suit and element. Aces are not material or manifested. They are tendencies that are the foundation of the manifestations of their suit; for example the Ace of Pentacles is not Earth, but rather a tendency to become Earth! The Aces are Minor Arcana cards, so we know right away that the messages offered by these cards will usually be…
