We’ve all heard of tarot cards, haven’t we? But what are these tarot cards and what is the meaning of each card? A tarot deck is made up of a set of cards embellished with universal images and ancient symbols that vividly represent the essence of ancient knowledge, teachings, archetypes, etc. The deck includes what is called Major Arcana and four suits of cards. Each tarot card has a very special meaning that contributes to the overall message of a tarot reading.
In the tarot deck, the card “Crazy” indicates someone who is not really conscious; “Magician” indicates someone of great talent; the “High Priestess” indicates someone who is wise and possesses intuition; The “Empress” rules over the triad of birth, death and rebirth, while the “Emperor” is the symbol of control in the world. The “Pope” indicates someone who lives by rituals and beliefs. The “lovers” represent love; the “Chariot” is the symbol of the struggle; and the “force” speaks for itself. The “Hermit” is a soul seeker; the “Sun” indicates satisfaction; and finally, the “Moon” is a feminine and seductive symbol.
The ‘Pentacles’ suit is associated with materialistic things like money and luxury, while the ‘Wands’ tarot suit is used for work-related predictions. The ‘Swords’ suit is also used for predictions, but for mental changes and suffering. If you’re interested in hope, then you’ll want to see the ‘Star’ costume appear. Lastly, the ‘Cups’ reflect what a person is like emotionally, as well as any other emotional changes.
