Tarot Card Deck

Most of us are familiar with the future-telling Tarot card. But not all of us are aware of the rich historical and magical meaning of each Tarot card. The Tarot is an ornate deck of cards usually adorned with symbols (such as stars and crosses) and images (water, trees, maidens), and is broken down as what is referred to as the Major Arcana and four suits of cards (wands, cups, swords, pentacles). Every individual card possesses its own meaning, and a series of cards with their individual meanings makes up a unique story for each Tarot reading.

The Fool, Magician, High Priestess, Empress and Emperor

In the Tarot deck, the “Fool” card indicates someone who is not truly aware; the “Magician” indicates someone of great talent. The “High Priestess” indicates someone who is both wise and in possession of intuition. The “Empress” rules over the triad of birth, death, and re-birth, while the “Emperor” is the symbol of control in the world.

The Pope, Hermit, Sun, Moon and Star

The “Pope” indicates someone who lives by rituals and beliefs. The “Lovers” represent love; the “Chariot” is the symbol of struggle; and “Strength” speaks for itself. The “Hermit” is one who is a soul-searcher; the “Sun” indicates contentment; and finally, the “Moon” is a feminine, seductive symbol. The ‘Star’ in the Tarot deck symbolizes positive thinking, optimism and hope.

Swords, Cups, Wands, Pentacles

The ‘Swords’ is another abstract symbol which is used to predict suffering and mental challenges. There are a variety of other symbols that tell what is coming in a persons life. For example, the ‘Cups’ foretell of changes to the emotional life. If you were to see the ‘Wands’ card appear it would represent changes in your career. ‘Pentacles’ would represent money and other material goods.

Justice, Death and the Hanged Man

The card of ‘Justice’ stands for justice while the card of ‘Death’ stands for the ‘spiritual/mental death’. Self sacrifice is shown by the ‘Hanged Man’.

The Tower, Temperance, Judgement and the World
