The same might apply to the Majors. I think the book is quite helpful in that sense. Your intuition and in depth knowledge of these concepts should assist you in making that connection. And...don't think too much! go with the heart, it's all there! lol. I didn't think I would grasp it and will have to read it over several times surely but while I was reading about the Wheel and the cards I felt my heart leap--it made so much sense! My feelings about the relationship of the Wheel and the cards really went into overdrive as I left the committee of old ladies at the door.
For example the position of the Green Man on the Wheel seems to make perfect sense. Also another point to ponder: in other tarot cards he ( as Emperor) is often represented has sitting in a throne made out of a tree (Steele Wizard) or as part of a tree himself (Transformational)....
ha ha sorry I already have homework, he he. this is what I will be focusing on this week.
I am really enjoying how this thread is coming along, this is a must continue. also I would love it if you could start new threads in the main Study group forum http://www.tarotforum.net/forumdisplay.php?f=14
to expland on each card that we discuss here so that way we can post up as many cards to complete the list. When starting a new thread with: The Wildwood Tarot [insert name of card]
If you want to you can copy and paste what you have posted here as well, just expand on it and include your discription, and other information you felt was informative, pertaining to the card. That way we are not double posting.
So Far we have talked about
6 of Stones ( needs to go in the study group card list)
9 of Bows (needs to go in the study group card list)
working on The Hooded Man
Please and thank you
