But the universal principles that govern the tarot are still the same that thousands of years ago. The mode of interpretation may have changed, adapting to new ways of seeing life. But the big issues that concern and occupy humanity remain the same. Perhaps the biggest differences are recorded among the so-called minor arcana.

Today, the tarot can reach us in many ways, from the traditional harness to the tarot by text message or e-mail. But its message, its essence and wisdom, although renovated, never change.
