By looking at every detail you will begin to get a sense of the message the cards are sending or the life lessons you may need to learn to enhance your own physical or mental well being. Major vs. Minor Arcana. Tarot cards are grouped into two major sub categories that share a commonality in weight. A major arcana card represents an energy that is deep, strong, decisive or long term, some you may recognize are the Sun, the Moon, the Lovers, and the Fool cards. When you pick a major card that means you have tapped into a powerful energy in your life. Where as a minor arcana card speaks more so to the short term, the ups and downs of daily life.
