Exercise Arcana Cards in the Celtic Cross

In the layouts below, you are given just the distribution of major and minor arcana cards. Write a sentence or two for each one describing what you sense about it based just on the positions and arcana factor. You can check my suggestions, if you wish.

This exercise is easier if you have something to look at. Take two decks of regular playing cards with different colored backs. One deck will be the major arcana, and one, the minor. (If you don't have playing cards, use squares of colored paper.) Create the layout you are working on by placing the appropriately colored cards face down in their assigned positions. In layout one, if blue cards are minor and red cards major, all the cards would be blue except for a red card in Position 10.

The Illustrated Key To The Tarot

The Illustrated Key To The Tarot

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
