The Major Arcana

The twenty-two trump cards of a Tarot deck are known collectively as the Major Arcana, and are shown below.  You must bear in mind that all Tarot decks differ in their depiction of the meanings of the cards, so it is certain that other decks will not appear to be the same as the one shown here, but this does not affect the meaning of each card.  This particular deck, designed by Aleister Crowley and painted by Lady Frieda Harris, is called the Thoth deck.  Despite its being crammed with extremely symbolic Kabbalistic, Thelemic, and Masonic symbolism, it remains one of the most popular Tarot decks of all time.
