If you are learning how to read Tarot cards or you would like to broaden your knowledge about Tarot card meanings, this chapter of the website will give you a great head start. At Live Psychics we read using the Golden Rider Waite Tarot deck. It’s one of the best Tarot decks to learn with, simply because of its beautiful imagery and hidden symbols within, which will help you to interpret your readings on a more advanced level.
The Major Arcana
The highest power cards of the Tarot are the Major Arcana. The Major Arcana cards signify powerful spiritual and life changes. The more Major Arcana cards that appear in a Tarot reading, the more likely it is that there are forces at work beyond your control that you need to learn lessons from.
The Minor Arcana
The Minor Arcana are ancestors of the modern playing cards, they represent the day-to-day going on’s in our lives, events and general situations that are represented by the ancient elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water.
The Suit of Cups
The Suit of Cups symbolizes the element of Water in the Tarot and can represent a huge range of emotions from love, sadness, sorrow, friendship to loneliness. Look for signs of a new found love, good friendships and happy families with the Suit of Cups.
The Suit of Wands
The Suit of Wands symbolizes the element of Fire and represents points in our lives where we show courage and passion. The Wands tells us of career, your ambitions and goals and what we need to do or change to achieve reaching them.
The Suit of Swords
The Swords represent our mind, intellect, troubles and general communication with one and other. It is symbolized by the Air element and can often reveal some rather discouraging cards as it is often our thought’s and words that get most of us in to sticky situations. But not all is bad with Swords, it is also our words and thoughts that get us out of trouble, so even the worst cards in the Swords suit don’t necessarily mean we’re in for difficult times.
The Suit of Pentacles
The Suit of Pentacles represents the Earth element, but it also symbolizes the importance of finance, stability, conservation, solidity, and fortitude in your life. The Pentacles speaks mainly of money but will also tell us about our health and home lives as they are also important factors of our most physical reality.
