Uncover the Meaning of your Tarot

Playing cards are believed to have originated in Persia or Arabia and then reached Mamluk era Egypt around the 11th century.  They entered Southern Europe in the late 14th century and originally contained the suits of cups, sticks, coins and swords.  The first documented tarot cards were used in the mid 1400's when additional trump cards with allegorical illustrations were added to the four-suit deck and used for playing games such as Italian tarocchini and French tarot.  In the late 18th century, tarot began to be used for divination in the form of tarotology and fortune-telling– sometimes by a nomadic culture of people known as Gypsies.

The Minor Arcana

The 56 Minor Arcana cards reflect the trials and tribulations that we experience on a daily basis. These Tarot cards highlight the more practical aspects of life and can refer to current issues that have a temporary or minor influence.


The Suit of Cups Tarot Cards represents the element of Water, and is associated with Hearts in playing cards. This Suit deals with the emotional level of consciousness and is associated with love, feelings, relationships and connections.


The Suit of Pentacles Tarot cards represents the element of Earth, and is associated with Diamonds in a deck of playing cards. This suit deals with the physical or external level of consciousness and thus mirror the outer situations of your health, finances, work, and creativity. They have to do with what we make of our outer surroundings – how we create it, shape it, transform it and grow it. On a more esoteric level, Pentacles are associated with the ego, self-esteem and self-image.


The Suit of Swords Tarot cards represents the element of Air, and is associated with Spades in a deck of playing cards. This suit deals with the mental level of consciousness that is centered around the mind and the intellect. Swords mirror the quality of mind present in your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs. Swords are often double-edged and in this way the Suit of Swords symbolizes the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Swords must be balanced by spirit (Wands) and feeling (Cups) to have the most positive effect.

Swords Tarot cards often represent the astrological signs of Air – Aquarius, Libra and Gemini. When you see a Swords Court Card in a Tarot reading, it often relates to a person with a Aquarius, Libra and Gemini star sign. Generally, Swords people are intelligent, thoughtful, rational, logical and excellent communicators. They are rational beings and like to experience the world by understanding and analyzing what is occurring around them. On the flip-side, Swords people can be ruthless, domineering, confrontational and rigid.


The Suit of Wands Tarot cards represent the element of Fire, and is associated with Clubs in playing cards.  This suit's meanings are associated with primal energy, spirituality, inspiration, determination, strength, intuition, creativity, ambition and expansion, original thought and the seeds through which life springs forth.
