Reading with the Majors only

Postby Saturnessa » Tue Nov 01, 2016 9:38 am

Hi everyone!

I started reading Tarot decades ago, and I have always used the full deck because 'that's the way it's supposed to be'. However lately, I find myself drawn mostly to the Major Arcana of a deck I own, and rather disconnected from the Minors... it's like, they do nothing from me.

That said, I still want to use this deck, but I'd probably only work with the Majors. Is it possible? Does anyone have experience reading with the Major Arcana only? How it differs from when using the full deck?

Thank you! BB

My card reading skills are zilch, but I've read, but not personally practiced, that some people prefer the majors, but also keep the aces, twos and threes, for some significant reason I've now forgotten, but it had something do with trinities. And another source that uses a standard playing card deck, removes 6,7,8,9,10 but used the rest. I'd think the method is up to the user, and someone must like the shortened deck or they wouldn't write about it.

I have read just using the majors before. It's usually a broad scope type of reading, lacking the details of the minor cards.
