Have any of you read "The Fool's Journey"? It's really helpful in understanding the Major Arcana. Here's a link:
I also found this very informational and inspiring. It's a poem about each of the major arcana. For example, here's the fool:
by Matt Brooks, CPTR and The Robin Wood Tarot
I ask the Fool why he's so happy,
He replies, surprised, "Why should I not be?"
"For Life," he says with a smile so clear,
"Is full of wonder and to it I cheer!"
"I have just been released from a prison so dark,
reborn, I've been, and now I am happy as a lark"
But I try to explain that he should be careful,
Life can surprise us and even make us tearful,
He says that I think just like his companion,
Who barks with relief that another understands him,
And then he tosses his head back and says not to worry,
For if he runs out of ground he fly with glory,
It's then that I understand about this archtypes kingdom,
The Fool is Life as a child, there's nothing but freedom.

I was thinking about this thread today; it really explains the Fool's Journey/major arcana well :)
