One of the most apparent variance from the RWS originates from her renaming of the Major Arcana: V– The Hierophant has actually been called The High Priest (which in some Marseille-style decks, it was formerly called), X- The Wheel of Fortune comes to be The Wheel of the Year, XV– The Devil is relabelled The Shadow Side, and also XX– Judgment is called Karma. The High Priest/Hierophant isn’t truly that much of a stretch as well as I often tend to specify the Hierophant because of this, directly. The Wheel of Fortune/the Year is type of a typical stretch in significance, as Fortune often tends to suggest opportunity or good luck, while the Year is intermittent as well as foreseeable. The Devil/Shadow Side I locate to be a specifically efficient re-naming, as the Devil is a totally Christian icon, as well as definitely complex as well as in some cases terrifying to Querants. Dugan has actually stated a post on Llewellyn (‘Every Card Tells a Story: The Story Behind the Cards for Witches Tarot’ by Ellen Dugan) that XIX – The Sun represents her child Kraig as a kid.
