    Comparing the 4 of Cups and the 4 of Wands     Many Tarot cards can seem similar enough to each other that interpreting them when they both show up in a spread can be challenging. One way to achieve a deeper understanding of a card is to compare it to another card. This month we will compare two Minor Arcana cards, the 4 of Cups and the 4 of Wands. We will explore similarities between these two cards, and then we will look at the differences. I will be using card images from the Rider Tarot Deck for this analysis. The basic messages or traditional interpretations of these two…

    Comparing The Fool and The Wheel     I’m in a Major Arcana kind of mood, so let’s compare two Major Arcana cards: The Fool and The Wheel, also known as The Wheel of Fortune. First, let’s review some terms. If you’ve read my column before, you can skip the next paragraph. 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.

But nowadays, my life is much more serene – you could call it boring. One day is much like the next and I’m quite content like that. I recently moved into a new apartment and had to order new rugs for the entire place, since it has hardwood floors. The…
