The Wands Story: A Writer’s Success

Learning the Minors

In The Tarot Workbook : Understanding and Using Tarot Symbolism by Emily Peach, she suggests making a story of each of the suits as an aid to learning. This was the first method I ran across that worked for me, so I’ve been doing it.

She wants you to include the court cards in the story, but I wasn’t quite sure how to fit them in . Plus, I’d rather learn all the minors first, and then the courts, so I’m just doing the minors for now.

So far I’ve done Wands, Cups and Swords, but I’ve only written out the story for Wands. I plan to add the other stories as I have time.

A bit of explanation here: What you’ll be reading is not a real story, but a chapter-by-chapter synopsis, briefly describing what happens (a synopsis, in other words!). This is followed by some of my current thoughts about each card. I hope to expand on these thought as I learn more.

I'm using the pictures on the Herbal Tarot to do this and I’ll describe each card briefly. Meanings come from various sources, including me :-) And I'm not worrying about reversals at this point.

If you decide to use this method of learning the cards, it’s important to remember that what happens in the story for the card is not the only meaning, or even the best one. It's just a mental string around your finger, to remind you of one meaning which hopefully, will bring up all the others.
