The aim of Tarot is to give guidance in our everyday struggle for meaning, purpose, how to achieve fulfillment in this lifetime.
Tarot in Space and Time:
Space and time are universal forms of the existence of matter, the coordination of objects. The universality of these forms lies in the fact that they are forms of existence of all the objects and processes that have ever existed or will exist in the infinite universe. Not only the events of the external world, but also all feelings and thoughts take place in space and time. In the material world everything has extension and duration. Space has three dimensions, but time has only one-from the past through the present to the future. It is inevitable, unrepeatable and irreversible. Therefore, the card of Constancy is a reminder to learn to understand the here and now. The past is gone, the future didn't happen, so you only have this moment, which will be gone in a blink of the eye. By reflecting on the past, you are able to heal your present mind, which will bring a better future. "Do not lessen the time by following desire, for the wasting of time is an abomination to the spirit."
The Meaning of Constancy; time, which only goes forward and it can never be repeated again. Constancy is “nothing in excess" and “know thyself”. By knowing yourself, you learn the creator within, you understand the here and now. The past is gone, the future didn't happen, the past and the future is this moment.
The word Taro derived from the Sanskrit word Tara, meaning road, passing over or beyond, passage, cross road, ferry. It is also called Tarita, a form of Durga, also known as carca, meaning inquiry, discussion, recollection, i.e. we already possess this knowledge and all we have to do is to remind ourselves of this wisdom.
The translation from Sanskrit suggesting that the original Tara, Tarita cards served as a guide to the right path, how to deal with our emotions, how to overcome desires, which entail jealousy, anger, hope, sadness, deceit, greed, pride, etc. With the help of the Tara you are able to advance into higher consciousness, as it is serving as a philosophy of life, helping you to find happiness, the meaning and purpose of life. These principles will enable you to understand your place within this universe, helping you to find the order and the priorities which should be of concern, to devise a proper way to live your life, to achieve balance.
Tarot tips on Reading individual Tarot cards. With Sanskrit interpretation you will be able to see clearly the origin of the image and their ancient meaning. You could ask how these ancient definitions can apply today, within modern society it surely cannot work. The meaning of the images derived from Sanskrit and each card interpretation is such a thorough study of the mind that it would take a whole book just to explain one card. Even today's psychologist are still behind understanding the complexity of the psyche in comparison to the speaker and inventors of the Sanskrit language. These ancient people extensively decoded the mind, because the language itself allows a much deeper understanding, a view of the world, which opens the door to other dimensions. There is no language exist today which would be able to do the same. Therefore, instead of languages evolving they have devolved from Sanskrit, which is the main cause to the limitation to our understanding.
There are many type of Gypsy Cards and, whether Hungarian, Austrian or Italian are a system all on their own. Well, this is what the common belief system is among Tarot Readers. That is why Gypsy cards are not called Tarot Cards. What is the difference? Tarot cards like Rider Waite are numbered and usually consist of 78 cards. Whilst Gypsy cards are not numbered and don't have major and minor arcanas. What is Arcana? Arcana translating as 'secrets or mysteries, hidden, concealed secrets. The word is originated from Latin arcanus, from arcere ‘to shut up’, from arca ‘chest’. However, this word goes much further back than Latin, it's origin derived from Sanskrit language 'arcana' translating to worship, honor and it is also relating to the primordial Sun.
The Tarot consist of the two groups of cards in a tarot pack: the twenty-two trumps (the major arcana ) and the fifty-six suit card. Trump again can be traced back to Sanskrit language, 'trmp' means dialogue with the universe. Major arcana are pictures that represent life, stages and experiences we all go through. It's meant to be the story of one's journey through life. Minor arcana cards describes the people, events, feelings and circumstances we encounter on our personal Journey. It represents events that are within the control of the individual and indicate how you do something.
So far this covers the basic difference between Gypsy Card and Tarot Cards. However, Gypsy Cards although it is mostly unknown also contain major and minor arcanas and it has to be in sequence as it would be numbered. For example the number 1 card is the card of Sweetheart, followed by the card of Lover. They are considered as major arcana's as it is explaining stages of creation. Whilst minor arcana is anger, jealousy, desire, hope, etc. These are events within your control.
Therefore the two cards are not so different after all. Personally I prefer the Gypsy Cards, because there are less images to memorize. I find it very convenient to have less cards to spread, yet each card holds meanings that makes up the 78 card reading, if you learn in depth what each card convey. But first, you have to learn the basics, so we offer books, which will help you to start reading Gypsy Cards.

The Hidden World of Tarot:
With Sanskrit you are able to discover a hidden magical world, where everything considered to be alive, animate or inanimate objects. For example Earth has many names, among them she is called Eva and she is married to Adam, who is in Sanskrit a representation of the universe, he is the unseen who has created the material world. You find Eva among the Gypsy card as the Sweetheart and Adam as the Lover. Whilst the picture of the Wedding portraying the union of non-matter Adam, with matter, Eva, the representation of creation. The House card is representing You, the Room is portraying your consciousness, mind and spirit, the visitor card is to bring unity to the spaces within your house, room, to create trinity between spirit mind and body. The Trinity created upon enlightenment between the different spaces, body, mind, spirit, and the Matrix protection will guide you though the difficulties and obstacles (vagara), to overcome for one day to become a vaida, a wise man. the Matrix also known as Rhea, meaning ascending, purging, cleansing.
