The 1JJ Swiss Tarot Cards contain 78 cards, consisting of the Major Arcana (22 cards) and Minor Arcana (56 cards). Tarot cards are similar to regular playing cards, with the addition of an extra court card for each suit and a set of themed cards (Major Arcana). Tarot cards are used in meditation and divination. The 1JJ Swiss Tarot is a variation of an older style of tarot deck, the Marseilles deck, which contains 19th century images in blocks of primary colors. The "JJ" in the name stands for "Jupiter" and "Junon" who are depicted in the Major Arcana. The 1JJ Swiss Tarot is not as ornate or enriched with metaphysical imagery as some popular tarot decks such as the Rider-Waite (Coleman Smith) or the Thoth (Crowley Harris) tarot. It was translated from the French and its design incorporates classic symbols that are used for interpretation.
