Need some very simple help for beginner on tarot suites (Shakespeare Tarot Deck!

  • Hello all!

    I am new to tarot, and because I am a classically trained actress I decided to go with the Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki/Paul Hardy Shakespeare tarot deck. It is just lovely and the book is good, but with some rather vital information missing.

    The thing is that the suites in this deck are different than in traditional decks. Instead of Cups, Swords, Wands and Pentacles, this deck has Swords, Sceptres, Crowns, and Orbs. I've studied all of the descriptions of all the cards very carefully, but I can't seem to find a through-line of meaning in the suites or any clues as to what elemental features they have.

    I was just wondering if anyone had any experience or insight that could help me with this problem?

    Thank you!
