WELCOME to AT Aein!!!

There really is no "should" in Tarot. There is a structure, yes. Some people include numerology and the suits to help them read. You can think of each of the minor cards being in families under the Majors. For example, the Aces all being ruled by the Magician. Others just look at pictures and see what stands out in that particular reading.

You do what "feels" right to you. The book is simply there for guidance to inspire your own insight and intuition to read the cards. No book definitions are set in stone! The cards will change their meanings depending on what the reading is about, the other cards surrounding, etc.

Does this help you?

I have been studying a great TdM teacher. His wisdom is to ask 2 questions:
What is happening?
How does it feel?
