  1. Hello,
    Thank you for putting this website together! I wanted to start using this resource to help my studies in Tarot, but I wanted to see where you thought I should start? I see a few places that look like the beginning of a lesson, but what is your suggestion on the start of the course? Minor Arcana, Court cards, or the Major Arcana?
    Thank you!

    • Hi Niko,

      Thank you for your enquiry. Most courses stat with The Major Arcana first, but I was taught using the Minor First, then Court, then Major. I find starting with the Major first can be too intense, and believe that is what puts many students off. The Major can be quite complex and spiritual. The Minor relate more to everyday life and I feel people can identify more readily with what they communicate. To be honest it really is a personal choice. A suggestion would be to work with both. Start with The Fool and learn as much as you can about him and the numerology associated with 0. Then move on to The Magician, but also the Four Aces. The Magician is 1 and so are the four aces (Aces also embody the untapped potential of 0). By working with both at same time you will better understand how they connect with each other and their numerical links. You will immediately see the Four emblems of the Four Aces laid out on the table in the Magician. By then studying the Four Aces, you will learn what the Magician has at his disposal and what he can do with them. The study of one will naturally help the study of the other. I would tend to approach the Court Cards as a separate study as they are treated in a manner different to the rest of the Minor Arcana.

      I hope this helps.

      • Thank you Vivien for you response! I really appreciate you taking the time to help guide me through all this timeless wisdom! I resonate with studying the Major in depth one at a time and working with all four aces at once. It would make sense to move sequentially, so after I feel confident with the fool, the magician and the Aces I can move on to the High Priestess and the four suits #2 card, and than the Empress and the four #3 cards. Is that what you are suggesting?
        Than once I get all the major arcana and minor numerical cards you recommend studying the court cards by themselves? I would guess all four pages at once than the knights, than the queens, and finally the four kings.

        I am really excited to utilize your knowledge and website as my additional study guide. Currently I am working with B.O.T.A. cards and books by P.F.C., but the minor and court cards are not talked about in depth.

        Thanks again!

      • Hi Nikko,

        Sorry for the delay in responding. I am working my way through a lot of correspondence now, so I appreciate your patience. Yes, you have it correctly. I would suggest following the Magician and Four Aces with the High Priestess and Four Twos, then Empress and Four Threes, and so on, and so on. When you get to the Courts, you can either study each family as a unit as in all Wands, Cups, Swords, Pentacles or study them in their rank such as all Pages followed by all Knights, followed by all Queens, Followed by all Kings.

        Then I would go back and look at the Suit as a Unit. Get to know their progress from Ace through to King and see how their element consistently influences them. This helps get to know your elements and how they can be predicted.

        Also, when studying your cards, always set time aside for revision. So let’s say you are on the Emperor and Four Fours of Suits. Briefly go back over your Aces, Fool and Magician to strengthen your memory of them. Then when you move onto The Hierophant and Fives, briefly go over the High Priestess and Four Twos. When you get to the end of these, then go back again. Each time you will retain more and more knowledge. Repetition of study leads to deeper understanding. Persist, persist, persist. Reiterate, reiterate, reiterate. Practice, practice, practice.

        As you move through your studies, you will find a system that works for you.

        Best of Luck,

        Vivien
