NOT A BOOK: Tarot of the Crone: Deck
The Major Arcana of the Tarot of the Crone represent times when the Crone is speaking directly to your soul. Rather than addressing an aspect of everyday life as in the Minor Arcana cards, the Majors require you to look at the deeper forces working within and upon you. They are challenging and powerful opportunities when they appear in a reading. In the Minor Arcana, the numbered cards represent qualities or aspects of our magical, emotional, mental and mundane lives. They are identified by the combination of their Element (Fire, Water, Air, Earth represented as Wands, Cups, Swords and Disks) and their Number (Ace through Ten). The court cards represent the different faces of the Crone among the Elements, different expressions of Elemental power. Her faces are Beast, Witch, Grandmother and Shadow.
