Let’s talk Tarot;

There are 78 cards in a deck; 22 from the major arcana and 56 from the minor arcana. The origins of tarots are unknown, no one is really sure how they came to be, but through out the evolution of man they’ve been there as an adviser and guide.

The major arcana are the permanent trump cards and the minor arcana are occult or divinatory tarot and consists for 4 suites; swords, wands, cups and pentacles.

The card you see above is from my french deck (which is my 1st deck ever given to me by JD (darwingeek) with the kkmcebu2011 meetup). It’s called “The Lovers” and is one of the popular cards in the deck. It means; love, beauty, unanimity, trails overcome, confidence, beginning of a possible romance, infatuation, tendency towards optimism, letting oneself go, the necessity of testing or subjecting to trial, struggle between sacred and profane love, putting to the proof, yearning. And when this card is reversed or up-side-down it means; failure to meet the test, unfaithfulness, separation, frustration in love and marriage, interference by othersm fickleness, unwise plans.

Tarots don’t really see or tell the future, they merely give advise and guidance. And you have to keep in mind that whatever is there and is being read is subjective, so it’s completely up to you whether or not you believe it :).

The physical and the emotional heart.

A comparison.

The physical heart:

The heart is a myogenic muscular organ found in all animals with a circulatory system (including all vertebrates), that is responsible for pumping blood throughout the blood vessels by repeated, rhythmic contractions. 

The vertebrate heart is composed of cardiac muscle, which is an involuntary striated muscle tissue found only in this organ, and connective tissue. The average human heart, beating at 72 beats per minute, will beat approximately 2.5 billion times during an average 66 year lifespan. It weighs approximately 250 to 300 grams (9 to 11 oz) in females and 300 to 350 grams (11 to 12 oz) in males.

In invertebrates that possess a circulatory system, the heart is typically a tube or small sac and pumps fluid that contains water and nutrients such as proteinsfats, and sugars.
