The Suits of the Minor Arcana. Good morning everyone. We will be working our way through the suits of the minor Arcana now. The Minor Arcana cards represent everyday events in the physical world. They represent our input, actions and influence in circumstances compared with the Major Arcana cards which mostly represent the universe’s hand in our lives and the spiritual lessons and growth we are required to undergo. The more Major Arcana cards in a spread the greater the forces of fate and destiny at that time propelling you in a certain direction or compelling you to learn particular lessons or achieve some form of spiritual growth.
