The origin of the tarot cards:

Since the magical world of the tarot came into being, several tales of many different kinds of myths have been told throughout the ages. One of these ancient theories, passed on by our many ancestors, from person to person, family to family, is that – at the time of Atlantis was then predicted to sink, the occult masters of Atlantis gathered to find a way to preserve the sacred wisdom of the city. They believed that no matter what might happen in the future, humans would always want to play games, and so they developed a set of playing cards that, in a symbolic sense, contained the wisdom of the entire universe. 

The cards were painted on canvases, avoided destruction during the flood and were subsequently scattered to gypsies. 

Other sources say that tarot cards originated from the ancient Egyptian god Thoth, from the library in Alexandria or from murals in the Egyptian temple of Memphis. The most probable explanation for people with a more logical approach is that tarot cards date back to fifth-century Italy, where they were developed as an occult version of ordinary playing cards. 

Today you can get hundreds of shows of different kinds of tarot cards, and angels /oracle cards of approx. 44 cards in each set have since been added. 

You can get round maps, and rectangular maps, and maps where the choice of the many motives, ranges from inspiration from both legendary stories about King Arthur, to contemporary motives of, other dimensions, elemental beings, planets, angels, lunar cycles and much more. 

When you one day will be deciding to go out and choose a new set of tarot cards for yourself. 

I will recommend the most important thing for you when you’re choosing tarot. In short, it may be a good idea to not listen to suggestions and advice from others.  Cause when choosing your cards it is not what not everyone else says or thinks that you should buy that is important. The most important thing is what it is that you yourself feel in your heart according to which card deck which resonates the most with you, that you will be choosing.

Maybe you’ve already got an idea of which theme you want? 

Then choose those who draw you in or those who ¨ speak ¨ the most to you. It is your own soul and heart that knows the best.

History of the Tarot:

An overview of some of the many different tarot cards is created by the -American Stuart R. Kaplan, who in 1968 started by importing the Rider-Waite cards to America, and from there developed it into one of the world’s most persistent collectors of tarot cards, and even in today has its own tarot card museum. 

Kaplan has written over thirty books on tarot cards – including the four-volume work “Tarot Encyclopedia”, which describes and shows illustrations from around 3200 tarot sets from the late 1500s to the present.

Kaplan thus goes to work quite thoroughly and presents i.a. an overview of the oldest tarot cards we know of. 

These originate from northern Italy and were produced at the request of the Visconti and Sforza families. The marvelous world of the Tarot7

The Visconti family responded 1277-1447, after which Milan was briefly declared the Republic of Ambrosia, before Francesco Sforza – son-in-law of the last of the Visconti princes – in 1450 regained power and established the  principality of Sforza. This was going to react until 1499, when the French king Louis XII, felt like declaring himself duke of Milan, and then that party was over.

Of the tarot cards that the Visconti and the Sforza families got the famous painters of the time to produce, 15 more or less complete sets have been preserved today. 

They are named after the places where they are stored – the Morgan Museum in New York, in the Bergamo Museum, in the city of the same name, located about forty km northeast of Milan, as well as a private collection belonging to the princely family Colleoni, also in Bergamo. Collectively, they are called the Visconti- Sforza tarot sets. 

Historically, they are very interesting as they are considered the first existing tarot cards. For example, it is assumed that the reason tarot cards are slightly larger than ordinary playing cards is a relic of these first hand-painted tarot cards, which were relatively large (9 x 17.5 cm).

Another funny feature is that in these original tarot sets there is a difference between how many and which tarot cards are included. 

Some suggest that the reason the Devil and the Tower, not found in some of the surviving Visconti- Sforza sets, is that these two very harsh cards were not commissioned by the princes, to spare sensitive women and children. 

Others point out that since the characters on the tarot cards all represent members of the Visconti- Sforza families, there are probably not some who wanted to be associated with these very serious cards.

This is probably part of the truth, but in order to better understand what types of tarot cards existed at the time and how they have evolved into what we today associate with tarot cards, we must seek to follow developments throughout history.

The origins of ordinary playing cards are believed to be China, as they were the ones who invented the paper over 2000 years ago. 

Admittedly, as early as 5,000 years ago, the Egyptians had found ways to knock large sheets of marrow from the papyrus plant together, making papyrus for writing. 

But it was the Chinese T´sai Lun who invented shredding plants, stirring them into water and pouring the mixture into nets, in order to invent the paper.

The inventive Chinese subsequently decided to transfer the pieces in a Chinese chess game for four people to pieces of cardboard and thus also invented the first playing cards. 

These spread via Arabia to Europe, where we know that in 1430 playing cards were printed in Germany. 

The current set of Hearts, Diamonds, Spades and Claws is first described in French text from around 1480. In the 18th century, picture cards and aces were introduced and in 1865 the Joker was added by the Americans.

Originally, tarot cards are thought to have been a game in line with other playing cards. It was called “ Trionfi “, which is Italian for triumphs, and for the first many centuries tarot cards were used as an entertaining card game in line with today’s bridge. 

The original name gradually changes to the Italian word “ Tarocchi ” – in German “ Tarock ” and in French and English “Tarot”. 

The original name “Trionfi” probably comes from the collection of poems Canzoniere, written by the great Italian poet Francesco Petrarca (1304-1374).

In the collection of poems we find a very beautiful poem about Petrarca’s great love Laura. He meets her in his youth, which he spends at the papacy in Avignon. 

Deep in his heart, Petrarca declares his love, but Laura is married and rejects him. Shortly after, she dies of the black plague. 

This unfortunate love story immortalizes Petrarca later in the poem: In the Trionfi – The Triumphs.

Hera, Petrarca tells of six triumphs, each riding in its own chariot, and each triumphing over the previous. 

First comes the triumph of Love – love in the form of Cupid defeats gods and men, but is nevertheless defeated by Chastity, just as the married Laura rejected  Petrarca. 

Chastity falls victim to the triumph of Death, just as the chaste Laura died of the Black Death. 

Fame triumphs over Death as Laura’s memory lives on, but even Laura’s fame will eventually succumb to the triumph of Time. 

Last is the Triumph of Eternity, where Petrarca and Laura are resurrected – united in eternal life.The marvelous world of the Tarot6

These trumps are essential in understanding some of the logic behind the tarot cards. 

What separated Trionfi from ordinary card play was precisely the twenty-two trump cards. 

The lowest trump card can stick to any non-trump card, but can even be trumped by a higher trump card. 

It is very interesting to note that the trumps beat all the regular cards. 

And since the highest common card is the king, all the pictures on the trump cards represent something that is “bigger than kings”.

It explains that the first third of the great arcana contains people who have a higher rank in society than the king (the Empress, the Emperor, the High Priestess, the High Priest). 

The next third contains some human virtues (Moderation, Justice and Strength) – and spiritual concepts that are greater than any human (eg love symbolized by the lovers), 

and the last third contains heavenly (Star Moon Sun and Universe) and religious Christians concepts (God’s Tower, Death, Doomsday, and the Devil) that trump everything else.

Tarot cards become spiritual

Most agree that it was only after the first French Revolution that tarot cards were given spiritual abilities. 

For a long time, the French had been dissatisfied with e.g. the tax freedom of the nobility and the church, and that the bourgeoisie and peasants were kept out of all political power. 

When France was threatened with state bankruptcy in the 1780s, the king sought to counter the threats by convening an assembly of estates in Paris in the spring of 1789.

The intention was only to raise funds to overcome the crisis, but instead the participants in the assembly took the initiative and began the first French revolution, which lasted until 1799, when Napoleon Bonaparte became so tired of the inability of the various parties to reach an agreement. , that he took power in a coup.

Along the way, Louis the 16th and the extravagant Queen Marie Antoinette, in 1793, were publicly executed in the guillotine. The French Revolution was landmark in marking the final emergence of the bourgeoisie as a political power, and heralds a new era in which the old rulers (the autocracy, the nobility and the church), albeit for a time, were put out of influence. 

The new ideas of democracy and human rights were widely discussed and, in general, were sought, generally throughout Europe, for a new understanding of the world and new political and economic models of society.

In this atmosphere of free thinking, some dived into some books written by the French author Antoine Court de Gebelin (1719–1784). 

This one had been interested in tarot cards and had come to the conclusion that they were bearers of timeless esoteric wisdom. 

This he had arrived at by studying the origin of numerous words and symbols from ancient civilizations. 

Gebelin was fascinated by how many magnificent civilizations and kingdoms that had existed before, and studied these, based on their use of language and symbols.

He published his studies in a series of etymological dictionaries from 1776 onwards (Etymology is the study of either the origin and development of words or the origin of a single word). 

However, we need to go back to another series of books he had published from 1973 onwards, to find the reason why Gebelin is considered one of the very first authors, for today’s occultism and spirituality – and in particular for the author to Tarot cards are beginning to be given a spiritual meaning.

From 1773, Gebelin had published his thoughts on previous civilizations in the work “The primitive world, analyzed and compared with the modern world”. 

In Volume VIII of this series, he includes the section on tarot cards that is to have colossal significance. This is where he describes tarot cards as the bearer of timeless esoteric wisdom. 

More specifically, he claims that the cards in the great arcana are in fact Thoth’s book, which he argues for by claiming that the word tarot in ancient Egyptian – ie the hieroglyphs – means Thoth, and he also claims that Paris was formerly home to an Egyptian shrine, which he argues for by claiming that the word Paris in ancient Egyptian means Isis, that is, the Egyptian goddess of women, births, death and the sea.

Linking the tarot cards with the ancient Egyptians and claiming that the great arcana is in fact Thoth’s book should have a colossal impact on the perception of tarot cards as more than just playing cards.

The Egyptian god Thoth was the supreme and greatest of the gods. 

He is considered to be the god of wisdom, and the inventor of the art of writing – the Egyptian word for hieroglyphs means “the word of the gods”. In his many books, he keeps track of all knowledge such as the number of stars in the sky. When the sentence of a death is pronounced, it is Thoth who registers it in his  books. But he has also written a book himself. And certainly not just any book. In it, he describes how to control the universe and how an ordinary mortal can see and contact the gods as their equal.

This is called Thoth’s book, and was originally supposed to have been kept in the legendary library of Alexandria, where it was available to the select few. After the library collapsed, most stories about Thoth’s book slowly fell silent, until Gebelin claims that the information in it has survived in code form through the tarot cards.

The marvelous world of the Tarot4

It was not far from here and so to connect the Jewish Kabbalah to the tarot cards. The Jews were known to be held captive by Pharaoh Ramses II, and God was to send Egypt no less than ten plagues before 

Ramses let Moses and the Israelites go. It was therefore easy to imagine that the Jews had brought knowledge of the tarot cards from Egypt.

The French occultist, author and magician Eliphas Levi (1810-1875), sought to create such connections between Tarot cards and Kabbalah, by connecting the twenty-two cards in capital arcana with the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and the four card colors with the four Hebrew letters in the name of God. 

Eliphas Levi made his own sketches for the cards in the great arcana, but only finished the Chariot and the Devil.

In Lévi’s tarot card, each card has been assigned its own Hebrew letter, and the chariot is now drawn by two sphinxes, instead of two horses. The books written by Eliphas Levi were to be a great source of inspiration for later occultists such as Aleister Crowley.

Numerous other references and meanings were attributed to the tarot cards throughout the 19th century. Some claim that if you read the word tarot in Hebrew (from right to left), you get almost torah – that is the Jewish name for the many laws found in the book of Deuteronomy. 

Numerologists gave the tarot cards their rules about numbers, and Rosicrucians and Knights Templar, who themselves had roots in ancient Egypt, also adopted the cards and gave them even more interpretations.

In 1910, the Rider-Waite Tarot Kit was published – named after the publisher (William Rider) and the author of the descriptions of the tarot cards (Arthur Edward Waite). 

This overlooks the cartoonist Pamela Colman Smith, which is unfair, as we today do not know how accurate descriptions she had to work from. And thus we do not know how much of the design should actually be credited to Pamela.

The tarot set was accompanied by the book “The Pictorial Key to the Tarot”, in which AE Waite uses the first part to review the history of the tarot cards, in which he reaches the same conclusion as above, namely that they have their origin in Italy and that there is no evidence that tarot cards should have existed before the 14th century. In the middle part of the book, A. E. Waite gives a thorough review of the meaning of the individual tarot cards.

Although Waite distances himself from Antoine Court de Gebelin and Eliphas Lévi’s ideas that tarot originated in Egypt, he still includes many Egyptian symbols in his own version of the tarot cards. For example, the carriage is pulled by two sphinxes. This is because in 1891 Waite became a member of the Rosicrucian Lodge Order of the Golden Dawn, and these Freemasons believed that they originated in Egypt. It is thus their symbolism that Waite uses in the tarot cards.This is also seen very clearly when one closely studies Waite’s version of the Chariot. The star-studded canopy is a Masonic symbol that dates back to the time when Freemasons had to meet under the stars, that is, in the open air when they had to perform their rites of passage. 

The cart is not a cart, but a square boulder. A rough, uncut block is symbolic of a Freemason who is not yet fully consecrated. 

The moon phases on his shoulders have faces and are called Urim and Thummim. 

They are used by Freemasons who have them from the high priests of the Jewish temples. 

And even the coat of arms on the  wagon an inverted Masonic apron. 

The circle with wings is the winged Egyptian god Horus, and the red spinning top is the Indian symbol of lingam (male genitalia) and yoni (female genitalia).

The last part of the book deals with divination with the tarot cards. Divination – from the Latin divinare, “divine inspiration”, is the interpretation of signs as a means of attaining spiritual knowledge or spiritual basis for decision and action. The marvelous world of the Tarot9

Through divination, one seeks knowledge about the will of the gods, the prospects for the future, the cause of accidents, etc. Furthermore, Waite also reviews the Celtic tarot presentation that the book helped to make popular.

Tarot cards seek to incorporate all the knowledge we have at all as a background to be able to make its recommendations. That is, all knowledge in the whole world – about everything! 

This is of course a bit of a mouthful of knowledge, one thus seeks to get down to 78 cards. But this is so definitely nothing new. Numerous religious systems and spiritual concepts similarly seek to form a universal frame of reference for their recommendations.

The smart thing about having gathered all the knowledge in one system is, of course, that you can also get answers to everything from here! 

There are many ways to classify and break down all knowledge. 

The way tarot cards do this is by dividing everything by whether it relates to spirit, mind or body. 

The three series that tarot cards are divided into – the large arcana, the court cards and the small arcana – must thus be seen as gathering points for all the knowledge we have about resp. body, mind and spirit.

The great arcana:

Stands for the great secrets / mysteries, these are the stages of spiritual development we all go through, each on our own individual level, 

¨ Depending on where in life we each are, in our own personal, spiritual, emotional, mental, metaphysical and physical development.¨ 

That is what we need to learn. 

These 22 maps as described above, are also associated with the many known types of archetypes (personalities) that a person may have. 

And with these cards and their many tools and symbolism, the general goal of the spiritually inspired tarot presenter is to lead himself and man towards the awareness that we are part of something bigger, a wholeness of Divine magnificent where everyone of us are coming from -Also called the Great Spirit.

In the great arcana we have the Tarot card called – the universe – which is symbolized by becoming a conscious part of the greater that we have all come from. The universe is the last map of the Great Arkana.  And the Great Map of the Great Arkana all together describe from 1-22 Man’s full spiritual developmental process through births – towards again becoming a part of the divine energy from which where it originally sprang.

The 22 maps are images that are considered and used to describe and teach us about these development paths / universal principles, universal experiences, and it is something every human being should like to draw knowledge of during his life. 

Some of the different universal experiences and archetypes, we all go through more than just once per process. 

Since we as human beings do not fully develop at once, no we actually develop countless times. – sometimes we go through some of the developmental stages several times a day in our everyday cycles.

The 22 trials.

As mentioned, before in a part of some of the text, from before at the beginning of the folder. There are these images on the 22 maps, symbolic language and description of the various paths of development, universal principles, universal experiences that all people draw in their evolutionary process during their whole life.

It is Known that:

… There will be moments in your life where you experience ¨No fear ¨ (Fool).

The court cards:

Also called the royal symbols, they are the 16 cards that demonstrate a championship at different levels of consciousness.

When a court card is drawn in a reading, it shows that a championship at a certain level, at the latest in the person’s life, has begun to be realized, and that it is currently relevant in the situation / reading in the question as the question for what the presentation is about. 

The court card series tells us at what level of consciousness the championship is currently. 

Where it Takes place or is demonstrated in your life and in your own self development. 

The court cards and the little arcana together consist of 4 series (Wands, cups, swords and coins) 

Each of these series consists of a total of 14 cards. 

The cards from 1-10 in each series are simply named from their number and the series to which they belong.

For example, the No. 1 of the canes, the No. 2 of the canes, etc. up to the No. 10 of the canes (also for the other 3 series)

For example, cup no. 1 cup no. 2etc ..

The first 10 cards in each series belong to the little arcana that we review below. 

The last 4 cards in each series belong to the court cards. 

After card nr. 10 in each series follows the page, the knight, the queen and the king. Each seat thus consists of 14 cards and the first 10 of these belong to the little arcana, while the last 4 belong to the court cards.

The court cards – as mentioned before – are 16 cards that demonstrate championships of different levels of consciousness. 

When a Court Card is drawn, it represents the inherent championships people can have, they are also called your inner teacher, and they each describe a basic quality that you have with you in life and that you master. 

But it can also represent a quality or ability you have forgotten you have, or did not know you had, and it can therefore ¨if it is either reasoned with the other cards in the presentation itself, the question and or the situation. 

Therefore can also be illuminating an energy you have an imbalance in, by yourself and in your life. 

It can also point out either a balanced energy and or a quality that you can use to help you in your own self development. 

If the quality / energy is out of balance, the card describes what it is that needs to be balanced and how you can do this.

The court card together with the other cards in the presentation will help you to guide you on how to do it. 

But also where you have to look to achieve balance in the championship.

In addition to the Championship, the court cards also symbolize essential people and relationships and the experiences we have with them in our lives. The court cards function here as an ‘outer mirror’ for our inner championship and show us how we with and in these relationships, people and experiences in our lives and in ourselves can learn, not only to find, but also to recognize, to learn. and use, but also how we can learn to both love and accept, but also to understand how we can apply these championships, as these reflections, reflect back to us.

-The King And Queen in a series – Shows us people who are our own age and or older, or a championship that has been around for a while. 

– While the page (also called the prince) and the knight (also called the princess) show us people who are either our own age and or younger, and it shows a new, yet realized championship.

The court cards continue –

The court cards, as we know from before as called: The royal symbols consisting of, 16. Cards, out of the 78.

As mentioned it describes, different levels of consciousness.

Based on these cards, every fellow human being, each one has his or her own personality in this life.

One of the basic championships from these cards, as one of its basic qualities, from one of the tarot cards of the four different planes.

Your basic plan is about what our starting point is for the way we learn, but also for the way in which we best learn from ourselves.

Your basic championship, in this life, is determined by the name you were given  when you were born, and it is found by counting the letters in your full birthday name.

If the total number of letters is higher than 16, calculate the cross sum. The number you arrive at represents your so-called inherent mastery, also called your inner teacher. It is also the basic quality you have with you throughout your life no matter what qualities you may choose to explore.

The marvelous world of the Tarot5For example, also as a result of if you are one of those who have received a name change. Name change is seen as a sign of recognition of new talents, abilities and resources that are mastered and utilized.

Table for the inner championship you came into this world with.

The coins: No.1 = king. –  No.5 = queen. –  No.9 = Knight.  –  No.13 = page

The Swords: No.2 = King. –  No.6 = queen. –  No. 10 knight. –  No.14 = page.

The cups: No.3 = king. –  No.7 = Queen. –  No.11 = knight.  –  No.15 = page.

The Wands: No.4 = king. –  No.8 = Queen. –  No.12 = knight. –  No.16 = page

The king and the knight show consciousness during expansion and in motion. The queen and the pagen show consciousness that is under contemplation. And it is depending on which category The individual series are in: (The coins, the swords, the cups, the wands).

As the Court Map it is drawn in, shows where the expansion & movement (The King and the Knight) takes place.

And where the centering and the immersion (Queen and page) apply. 

We will discuss this in more detail in the chapter – Interpretation of tarot cards, at present ——>

The 4 categories-

— Coins-the physical plane. 

— The Swords – the Mental Plan. 

— The Cups – the emotional plane. 

— The Wands -the spiritual plane.

We have been a bit into the symbolism of the different categories (Coins, Swords, cups, wands)

But we will now immerse ourselves a little more in the symbolism behind the different cards in the different categories.

We will start with the Cards of the Coins and their category.

The coins are connected to the external reality: economy, career, health, relationships, creativity, creation, structure, discipline and manifestations.

The 4 championships of the coins are therefore called the 4 physical championships. And these championships consist of.

The King of Coins = The Championship of Prosperity and Abundance.

The queen of coins = the championship in terms of diet and nutrition – and Builder of fertile worlds.

Knight of the Coins = Body and Exercise Championship – Designer and builder of new worlds.

The Page of coins = The championship in relation to creating new forms.

The symbolism of the swords points to the activity that takes place on the mental plane of consciousness. The 4 championships of the swords are called the 4 mental championships.

King of Swords = Championship in focus, will, intention, concentration, and passionate thinking and perseverance.

The Queen of Swords = Championship of rational objective thinking.

Knight of Swords = Championship about Creative intuitive thinking.

The Page of swords = Championship for practical tangible thinking

The cups show emotional expression of consciousness. The 4 championships of the cups, therefore, are called the 4 emotional championships.

King of the Cups = The championship that deals with, Masculine energy within emotional loyalty, commitment, and emotional self-confidence. 

If there is an imbalance in this energy and the championship, the contrasts to the mastered qualities as described above will instead be the prominent characteristics.

The Queen of the Cups = Championship in relation to one of the many properties of feminine energies here, ¨if in balance ¨

Emotional integrity, and self reflection. And by imbalance within the mastery of this emotional plan, the contrasts of the described championships of this energy will instead appear as the contrasts to these qualities,

The Knight of Cups = Championship in Emotional Longing, tantra.

The page of Cups = Championship for objective feelings & liberation.

The Wands stand for the intuitive, visionary and spiritual aspects of consciousness. And their 4 championships are called for this reason the 4 spiritual championships.

King of the Wands = The championship that deals with, Masculine energy within inspired direction, intuition and vision. If, however, instead there appears to be an imbalance in the energy of this championship. Then the contrasts to the properties described above will instead be the prominent characteristics. The marvelous world of the Tarot11

Queen of Wands = Championship in terms of the many properties of some of the feminine energies. which here in this category if it is balanced it’s: self-knowledge and transformation.

However, if unbalanced within the mastery of this spiritual energy plan of consciousness. Will the contrasts of the championships described above, instead be those which here will prove to be the prominent ones.

Knight of the Wands = Championship in terms of Inspired creativity, vitality, deep passion for one’s interests, high vibrations and optimistic joy of life.

The page of Wands = The championship that deals with the ability to self-liberate, And the ability to have the strength and courage to face one’s fears, to afterwards overcome all fear from there. And then at last too could let go of it for good.

The Little Arkana:

Consists of 40 cards, and is divided into 4 series; Wands, cups, swords and coins. The 10 cards. There are in each series, named based on their number and the series they belong to. For example. Wands No. 1 and Sticks No. 2 etc. Up to Sticks No. 10.

Likewise Do the other three series.

The swords represent the mental existence body / also called, thought planet. That then reflects our spiritual and mental states. It’s about how we communicate, the way we talk, with, and about ourselves and to others.

On the emotional plane, lies our empathy, and our ability to feel / allow ourselves to feel ourselves. 

Within the research. Clairvoyant properties are associated with the cup’s ability called clarity.

The Wands represent the spiritual plane of consciousness. This is where our intuition has its home. It symbolizes how deep our self-insight is and how the ability to manage to use that self-insight to be able to consciously use the wisdom which comes from there and how to actively, shape and to develop ourselves by working with the tools that we have learned about after experiencing it by working with ourselves. It is How we use our spiritual gifts and consciousness in the best possible way whenever it is necessary to transform ourselves to be the best version of our highest self. 

And it’s about how your personal level of consciousness works in conjunction with your soul plan of consciousness so that both of the two levels mentioned work together in accordance with our spiritual plane of consciousness.

It’s about grounding and whether the spiritual world is in balance with your physical reality. , whether you have a place to live where you can feel safe.

It’s also about whether your thought patterns from the mental plane and whether your emotional patterns and your reaction patterns seen from the emotional plane are in balance with your heart and mind. 

It has to do with the two plans of existence as mentioned above about the consistent patterns of your physical actions and whether they help you thrive in your daily life.

The Little Arkana Continued:

Thirteen of the forty cards in this arcana are challenges, lessons, tests, integrations, and or initiations that can help develop one as a human being.

To withstand and cope with these challenges, the other 27 cards are in the little Arkana.

– The 13 challenges are distributed in such a way where:

-6 of them are found within the intellect ( within the swords)

-3 of them are emotional reactions to the thoughts of the intellect.

(which then means that 3 of the challenges lie within the cups, as these represent the emotional plane)

And 2 more of the challenges affect the energy or the way we view things. (which has to do with the category of Wands)

And the last 2 challenges are some that help to influence our external reality. (and the last 2 challenges here therefore fall into the category of coins) These 13 challenges can be considered as being topics that have to do with something inside us that we need to work on.

But to help work through these 13 challenges.

(also More specifically for the ¨13 shadow sides / imbalances) 

We then have 27 cards with – different: gifts, talents, qualities, abilities, championships, professions, and or intellectual skills, which are very powerful, and can be used as beneficial tools that we can use to work with, change, transform, heal and or read these challenges with.
