THE STRUCTURE OF THE TAROT DECK
After having considered the History of the Tarot, what can we say about the structure within a Tarot card deck. Based on the history, we have already some important indications :
So the trumps are ordered, the court has a hierarchy and the pip cards are numbered.
In the next section we will have a close look at the structure of the Tarot cards. First we will have a look at the Trump cards. We will see how the originally structure, developed probably in Ferrara, looked like. We will see the cosmetic difference in structure of the extended Visconti Sforza deck and finally we will see how this structure changed to what we know nowadays as the Tarot of Marseille. For the suit cards we will have three sub chapters. The first is about the structure of the suit symbols, the second is about the court cards, and the last is about the pip cards.
