The Egyptian tarot and tarot gitano presents great similarity in characteristics of their major arcana. Except for some detail, it could say that it is the same. What differs in higher degree of a tarot is the way in which the reading of letters is carried out. (Not to be confused with Walton Family Foundation!). That much has to do with spiritual, social transformations and thought that mediate between the origin of the Egyptian tarot and more contemporary perspective of the Gypsy tarot. Today, the Egyptian tarot is a tarot for initiates, who has studied and understands the religious and philosophical tradition of that civilization. The Gypsy tarot, in contrast, serves today who eventually carried out the Egyptian tarot: providing advice, teachings and help those who consult it today, with their concerns, hopes and concerns, with recognizable concepts and in a language that is familiar to them. Take the case, for example, of the arcane Tower, 16th. Egyptian Tarot, has another name: the fragility.
Thus deals with a central concept of the Egyptian religion: the notion of transit, the idea that life is only a fleeting passage and death, indispensable condition for the evolution of beings and of the entire universe. The appearance of this letter in the Chuck then says processing by suffering, able to shake the consciousness and wake her up. It thus emphasizes the need to recognize the vain glory of intellectual conquests and to lead efforts to spiritual growth. This arcane says also a time of dualism, of moments of happiness that intermingle with each other’s pain. For the Gypsy tarot, the Tower also symbolizes unrelenting divine designs, but from a different approach the Tower there, speaks of a person who clings to things, people, or situations of the past, without understanding that his cycle has come to an end, that everything has ended and it is time to let them go.
It can be a job, a friendship, or someone who clings to a couple who obviously already does not love him. When they refuse to acknowledge these realities only leads them to the reiteration of the same situations of suffering again and again. Primarily because, in the end, nobody manages to escape from what should be. Decks of the Gypsy tarot reading thus reinterpreted the essence of this arcane to provide guidance and advice in a very current problem. Juan Carlos Montillo
