No doubt the method Enríquez I like, but there is something wrong there. For example, Pope in a spread, is not just an old dress a certain way, in a certain position, with a scepter in hand, etc., is a pope. Same with Justice, is not a woman with a balance in hand is sitting, etc., represents Justice. Each symbol in the tarot is a symbol and each card can not be treated as if they were a picture of to take some parts to unite them with those of others and thus form a visual rhyme. Especially the major arcana represent very complex allegories that are not reducible to complex shapes and colors represent very specific ideas, children too. Translated with Google translator.

Well said Byron. Enrique seems to isolated parts of the image in his reading approach, and as a result he loses the power and magnitude of the total image.
