There are a lot of tarot cards, and memorizing the meaning of each is not the easiest way to learn tarot reading. Instead of memorizing each picture, you should instead understand the two divisions of the tarot deck: the major arcana and minor arcana. This should get you on your way to reading tarot cards more effectively.
The 22 major arcana cards represent things that are out of your control. These cards include the fool, magician, high priestess, empress, emperor, hierophant, lovers, chariot, strength, hermit, wheel, justice, hanged man, death, temperance, devil, tower, star, moon, sun, judgment, and world.
If you are serious about tarot reading, be ready to face endless interpretation levels in the major arcana. Major arcana cards should be taken with more weight.
The 22 major arcana cards, on the other hand, are the representation of the simpler things of everyday life. The four suits - the Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles - each symbolize a particular approach to life.
The Wand is associated with the element fire, which represents masculinity. The Cups represent the female psyche, in which emotions and spiritual experience are entities with water as the element. Swords symbolize intellect, thought and reason.
The Pentacles represent the earth, which represents material things or the services of the physical world. The 16 minor arcana cards are the suits, aces, twos, threes, fours, fives, sixes, sevens, eights, nines, tens, court cards, pages, knights, queens, and kings.
Learning the real essence of the two parts of a tarot deck, which are mentioned above, is a good start in getting full tarot knowledge. In any case, it won't get you a meaningful and articulate reading if all you have done is memorize each card without learning the secrets of their true nature.

THE MEADOW -- A SPIRITUAL ROMANCE
"The Meadow" is an epic love story unlike anything told before. The storyline threads an earthly path through four life times, from ancient Mexica to contemporary Pakistan, and affords the reader glimpses of a place known as "The Meadow" - an inter-life waterhole where souls rest between lives.
This is a story about life and all its complexities. It is about the eternal love of two characters that seem destined to be together but who repeatedly fail to bond due to a nemesis that tracks them from life to life, tearing them apart.
The stage of "The Meadow" includes hate and retribution, international espionage and political deceit, interspersed with the brilliance of an autistic savant, offspring of the female protagonist, who tries to solve the secret and mystery of the eagle in order to save his mother.
The frustrated lovers thus have only one option - to unite in the Meadow - a place they forget all about each time they incarnate into a new life.
This site is dedicated to "The Meadow", a book of more than 600 pages and has yet to be published, but it is also devoted to sharing information about life beyond the trapdoor of death, inviting the reader to question everything, from dogmatic beliefs to the establishment.
There are many related articles here and we hope that there will be something for everyone. We hope to encourage communication and discussion between likeminded individuals willing to share their experiences to further our common goals of advancement into the future whilst learning from each other.
