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.
