Now that we are a few months into 2017, I thought it would be interesting to go back and take an in-depth look at the The Economist Magazine Cover for The World in 2017 with eight Tarot Cards.
If you do a quick internet search on the subject you will find a number of different occult ‘interpretations’ of the meaning to the Tarot cards, but I have noticed that next to none of them appear to have any actual knowledge of the Tarot or its symbolism in general. I have also noticed that the single biggest mistake that everybody makes is that they take the Tarot cards out of their proper order. Simply put this is a big No, No, in doing any type of Tarot reading or in trying to interpret the meaning of the symbolism on Tarot cards themselves and what they are trying to tell you.
The primary reason is because the meaning and symbolism of each Tarot card builds on the card(s) that came before and after. It also gives meaning to the individual symbolism on each Card and how it fits into the overall reading with the other cards. Which basically means that by taking them out of order you distort the true meaning of the reading. With everybody only focusing on the meaning of each individual Tarot card and not the relationships between each card in the reading.
