Ancient Gypsy Avatars offers you books to helps you to start to explore Gypsy card and tarot, and their relationship. Each cards explained in a way that it is easy to understand, so you can start reading the cards as intended by the ancient system.
There are many ways to read the images of Gypsy card, and it become rather confusing. There is a 'traditional' way, which means that's how most people read the card. It doesn't mean however, that it is the right way.
Here we are trying to reveal the meaning of Gypsy Card, for example the definition of the Visit or Visitor card. The card is read the ancient way, not the traditional way. The ancient method is the Phoenician system, or as you know the Phoenicians today, the Romani or Gypsy praxis reading the cards.
First, it is important to clarify what Phoenix means, from which the name Phoenicians come about. The Phoenician spoke Sanskrit language, which should be clear by now if you landed on the 'index' page. Why the language is so important? Because each letter of Sanskrit language carries colour, hight, withs, depth, bredth, weight, number, and shapes. Now, that we've cleared the complexity of the language, we can explain the meaning of Phoenix. But still, we have to look at it in relation to Greek language, since Greek is the language of Prometheus, who stole the 'fire of the Sun' Agni. Greek language and writing system was taken from the Phoenicians, it was not traded, but stolen. The Phoenix in Greek is written φhονιξ. To understand these letters, we have to look at them individually, because Phoenician language used hieroglyphics. And that is how these books explaining each cards, in relation to the ancient Phoenician language and writing system. Read more >>
The Ten of Hearts or Cups in Tarot representing insight, artistry, creative energy, which indeed compliments the card of House, because the House is representing you, therefore, it is describing a type of characteristic within the house, You. However, the Ten of Hearts in Gypsy card representing Union, Creation, Wedding. Whilst in Lenormand, the King of Hearts showing calm clarity, control over emotions or manipulations in reverse. This interpretation in Gypsy Card represented by the card of Justice, which card also relates to the King of Wands in Tarot. And again it does compliment the characteristics of man. However, they both wrong at the same time, because they're limiting the card's meaning to that particular quality, personality. At the same time confusing for those who are just starting out.
On the other hand Rider portraying the House with the Magician and it is a major Arcana. A table placed front of the man with objects such as wand, cup, sword, and coin, sums up the four type of cards. These objects representing the four elements, Fire, Water, Air and Earth. Originally Tarot didn't have these objects, but it was shown with the elements instead. Fire is corresponding to the Wand, Water is the Cup, Air is the Sword and Earth portraying earthy substance like harvest, which in time turned into money placed on the table. The Magician's body language is strange, as one hand pointing up and the other pointing down, which is a portrayal of 'as in heaven so is on Earth'. Whilst the 8 placed side way on top of the Magician's head is borrowed from Sanskrit portraying rebirth. In Rider it is representing a deathless state.
All elements include positive and negative meanings. That is, the same way as one word in Sanskrit language can have positive and negative interpretation, such as the word Guru, which means teacher. Yet when you call yourself a guru, it is referring to haughtiness. There is only one teacher, the Universal Consciousness and we can only recall this knowledge, yet no one can claim to own it, therefore, no one can call themselves guru.
The Marseille Tarot although it is showing similar theme to Rider, it calls the card 'Le Bateleur' meaning The Fool, although not every Marseille card call it as such, only the older ones. Front of him on the table again different things then on Rider, which makes less sense, it could be the wrong understanding of the card by the artist. In Rider the Fool is numbered 0, whilst the Marseille showing number 1. Most tarot reader interpreting the card as a child, yet it's name is Ox in Rider and in Thoth tarot, which is the correct interpretation. Who is the Ox? The Ox is the Bull, and the bull is called Gorgon in ancient Greek mythology. How these names are connected? Gorgon is the closest to Sanskrit, it is called garjati, translating to bull, to be drunk or confused, roar, being his own enemy, rumbling, battle passion, crying, growl, etc. The Ox, or Bull always described as someone who is a Fool, airhead, (gomUDha; i.e. stupid as an ox) and who will cause the destruction of human kind and earth. Therefore, among Gypsy cards you will find the Fool as the Enemy and always placed before the Thief as both cards are connected.
The question is, how can the same image 'HOUSE' interpreted so many different ways and why the meaning is hidden from those who would like to learn how to read the meaning of the card? Thus, attempting to understand how to read these cards create more confusion then clarity.
For this reason we have created for you this tarot book, which combines all these different cards together. Once you learn it, you'll be able to read all type of tarot cards or Gypsy cards. Which means the secret of Tarot and Gypsy Cards can only be unveiled with Sanskrit language. That is, all these cards and ancient Greek mythology were inspired from Sanskrit teachings, and only this ancient sacred language able to clear confusion, from disorder you will arrive to order.
Today there are so many cards to chose from, and so many way reading them, that no one can be sure which one is right, which one to chose. The books listed combining playing cards, Gypsy cards and Tarot into one and each card reads according to the Ancient Romani Tradition, which you might find surprising at least.
They're explained in relation to Sanskrit language, Greek mythology and Rider/Thoth Tarot. What is the connection of these distinctive ideas? As you learn more about the tarot images, you will find Greek mythological characters and their name which was borrowed from Sanskrit, the ancient language which can be traced back to the Phoenicians. If you are already familiar with Gypsy cards, you know the messenger is Hermes for example, which word was borrowed from Sanskrit language, Harenu, which means to claim territory, to take over countries by cunning, thievery, and it often involved genocide. The original messenger is called gamAgamakArin, (messenger), also known as YAH ZUS which was changed into Jesus.
For the tarot reader who got use to their own set of cards, let it be Hungarian Gypsy Card, Lenormand, Rider or Playing Card, it is hard to imagine that they might mean something else previously thought. To demonstrate how different cards assign different meanings, we will compare Rider/Thoth Tarot, Lenormand and Le Jeu Destin Antique and Marseille Tarot cards:
The most obvious difference is between Lenormand and Antique card. They both representing House, yet they assign different number to them. The Antique is showing Ten of Hearts and Lenormand King of Hearts. So, which one is right?
