Pentacles, Coins, Disks, Worlds

The Suit of Pentacles is often thought to come to the Tarot from the playing card suit of Diamonds.  The Pentacle suit also sometimes goes by Pentagrams, Worlds, Coins, Disks, or Rainbows, depending on the Tarot Deck and the ideas of its artist.  By whatever name, the cards in this suit all carry the same […]

Swords, Blades, Knives, Daggers

The Tarot Suit of Swords comes to us from the playing card suit of Spades.  The suit of swords is called by many names across the various Tarot decks.  I’ve seen swords in some decks called daggers, blades or knives, and even clouds in the Osho Zen Tarot.

Tarot Swords point to issues and concerns of […]

Wands

The Suit of Wands is believed to come to the Tarot from the playing card suit of Clubs.  In some decks, Wands are alternately called staves, clubs, rods, staffs, and even batons, but they all carry the same origin and meanings.

Some Tarot decks illustrate Wands as being connected with fire, and some with the element […]

Tarot Reversals

When a reversed Tarot card comes up in a reading, everyone seems to have a different opinion of how, and if, they should be read.  Some people see reversed cards as bad luck, and some refuse to read reversed Tarot cards at all.

Whether or not I read a Tarot card reversed in a reading depends […]

Tarot Suits: Cups

The Suit of Cups is often thought to be derived from the playing card suit of Hearts.  In Tarot, traditional decks and those based on Rider-Waite imagery often use Cups and Chalices interchangeably.  In art and other non-traditional decks, the suit of Cups can be called anything from Bowls to Urns, Vessels or Hearts.  I’ve […]

Tarot as a Tool: Relationships

One of the hardest things in life to figure out is our relationships with other people.  Fortunately, the Tarot is a fantastic tool for such problems.  The cards, when laid out, have a unique ability to help us understand ourselves and the people in our lives from a new perspective.

Here’s an example.  Say you have […]

Suits & Seasons: Spring

An abundance of Wands cards in a reading could also be telling you that something new is coming your way, poised to burst into action as soon as you recognize that new patterns are trying to […]

Layouts: The 3 Card Spread

A three card spread is just what it sounds like, three cards laid down in a row.  This is a useful spread for asking straightforward questions, or just a general information reading.

A popular way to look at the three cards is one as past, one as present, one as future.  Or, to make decisions, the […]

Major Arcana: 6 The Lovers

Slow down, this card doesn’t mean what you think it does.  It’s not about two lovers ending up together.  It can be about two lovers, or two friends, or two siblings, or any two people trying to work in harmony together.

Because this card is about choices.  And with choices, come sacrifices.

Often, this card is about […]

Major Arcana: 17 The Star

The Star is one of the few Tarot cards where one has a foot in each world: the seen, and the unseen.  This is a hopeful card, a card of hope, faith, and positive outcomes.  If there is a Tarot card that represents intuition, this is it.

The Star is also a card representing a person […]
