The Major Arcana represent beginnings, ending, changes, benchmarks, and archetypal energies in a spread. There are only two Major Arcana that are read differently when reversed: The Martyr (The Hanged Man) and the Materialist/Spiritualist (The Fool). Reversed Majors mean that their energy is not fully expressed. The 22 Major Arcana correspond to the 12 signs and 10 planets.
The Minor Arcana are first read as mundane experiences and if the more earthly experiences do not make sense, read the esoteric or “inner” meaning. Reversed Minors mean that their energies are not fully expressed. The 36 Minor Arcana correspond to the 36 decanates of the zodiac.
The Tens represent change or the unusual. Reversed Tens mean that their energies are not fully expressed. The 4 tens correspond to the four seasons.
The Court Cards represents the people of the Tarot according to their personality types, not their sun signs. Reversed Court Cards get a sex change! The 12 Court Cards correspond to the 12 signs of the zodiac.
The Horsemen represent the thoughts of other people or the thoughts of the querent. Reversed Horsemen mean the opposite of the right-side-up interpretation. The 4 Horsemen correspond to the 4 elements.
