Like the nervous system which receives, integrates, and transmits knowledge, the consciousness goes through these same three stages to accomplish major life changes. You have been programmed by DNA in every cell to spiral onward until, as your awareness increases, you are more and more able to take over the job of programming yourself. In other words, you are meant to become a Goddess — a Creator of your own reality.
The beginning of this awareness of self-creation, if you call the Medicine Path, and you who walk on it a Medicine Woman. “Medicine” is used in the Native American sense to mean ‘healing”, it is a force that corrects that which was out of balance. One uses the words “Medicine Woman” rather than “Medicine Man” because the medicine of this deck is to assist in restoring balance within society and individuals, and it is the feminine aspect which we currently need Whether you are male or female. This deck is meant to bring the feminine healing aspect of you into realization.
Today I am going to talk about the major arcana cards in the Medicine Woman deck. In traditional Tarot:
The cards of the Major Arcana
Though each of the Major Arcana cards stands alone with its own deep meanings and influences, linearly speaking, these 22 Tarot cards also tell a story. The first card, The Fool, is the main character of this story, and his experiences as he learns, grows, and makes his way through life are represented by the 21 cards that follow. This storyline is a great description of the accomplishments, setbacks, and lessons we all learn as we go through the trials and tribulations of our lifetime, growing into whole, complete beings by the end of our journey.

As an Angel Card reader and as a reader of Tarot The major cards also tell me other things about the person I am reading for which varies from person to person and can include but not limited to: The person is on their path, their guide and angels are guiding them and their journey, they may be coming upon a major step in their journey. If a lot of Major cards come out to me it can mean that there are many things going on behind the scenes somewhat out of control of the person I am reading for.
I love how the Medicine woman tarot cards for the Major Arcana do mostly follow the traditional major arcana cards. They help the reader and the querent ( the person getting the reading) a basis of what is going on in their lives with a very positive or at least easy to understand way.
In all that I do I try to find the love, the meaning and the possibility to create hope where there is none.
