A phenomenon you will come across during Tarot card study and Tarot readings are sub-elements and contradictory elements. Mainly associated with the Rider Waite-Smith Tarot deck and decks inspired by it, at its most simplistic explanation, sub-elements are those underlying elements that are secondary to the main one normally associated with a Tarot card. They can either compliment the main element and theme of the Tarot card, or they can in fact appear contradictory.
Ranging from adolescents to young adults (and often a little older), Knights and Princes within the Tarot Court cards will almost certainly be male. As people they can be seen to be active, even the elementally passive Knights and Princes are the most active of their suit and element (Cups and Disks).
As a group within the Tarot Court Cards, Pages and Princesses represent youngsters. The age ranges can include very young children to adolescents; though I find this a loose association when working with the Princesses of the Crowley Thoth deck.
Often called the Minor Arcana, or the Pip Cards of a Tarot deck, they number 36 in total. I explore the actual cards in my tarot card meanings section. In this post, I want to show you how the numerology of the Minor Arcana works and how the numbers themselves have universal definitions that can be broadly applied to all cards and metaphysical situations. You will no doubt see relationships between the numbers here and the general definitions of the Major Arcana.
The Four Elements In Your Life
Considered by the ancients to be the building blocks of everything, the Four Elements can be seen and felt everywhere. While that may seem like a simplistic approach in this modern technical era, just take a moment to consider your own direct experiences with the elements.
