The Major Arcana
Each of the major arcana cards are special in their own way, and will always overpower other cards in a reading. These cards represent the journey of the fool on his path to knowledge and understanding. They express the joys and sorrows that are encountered along the way, and enlightenment to the direction that is laid before the querent (person seeking answers). The Tarot deck is a tool created to guide our inner conscience on the path to greater knowledge and understanding of ourselves, whether conscious or subconscious. In that sense, the major arcana cards are the true heart of any tarot deck, depicting the journey into the unknown from beginning to end.
