List of Tarot Card Meanings

"Will we get a list of Tarot card meanings?'. Is on of the first things my students ask when we are starting out looking at the Tarot cards.
Well you are in luck!
I have just created such a list for you.

The first thing you should know about Tarot is that is consist out of 78 cards. Each card has its own special meaning. Some readers use upright and reversed cards and attribute different meanings to the position of the card. Another way of looking at different sides of one Tarot card is acknowledging that each card has a positive and a negative meaning.

    Some background information about the Tarot

    The Tarot consists out of 78 cards and is split up in a Major and Minor Arcana.
    The Major Arcana has 22 cards and the Minor Arcana has 56 cards. The Minor Arcana consists out of 4 suits much like a normal card game. In allot of decks (including the Rider-Waite Deck which I use allot on this website) have the following suits; Swords, Cups, Wands and Pentacles.

    A more visual representation of the structure of the Tarot looks like this:

    How will I ever learn so many cards?

    Well this is simple and hard at the same time. Firstly you need to read, practise and read some more. There is no better way to ingrain information into your brain than by using repetition. One very useful tool to help with learning Tarot card meanings is drawing a card a day. With a card a day you can see how 1 card relates to your day. You can also if time permits read a little about the card and you will remember the meaning of the card better as the card has relevance to you and your life (even if it is for a day).

    A card a day can be done in the morning or at night as a reflection of the day or a clue as to what is coming. You can use your own Tarot deck for this or click here to go the an online tool to draw your card a day.

    What if Tarot card meanings are different?

    If you have read or are reading books about Tarot there might not be a perfect overlay on what the author says the card means, when compared to the Tarot card meanings that you get on this site. Overall however you find that allot the meanings for cards are very similar they might just been worded differently by different authors. Even when you start to look at other Decks of cards and move away from a standard Tarot deck like the Rider – Waite you will still find an underlying theme or message in cards that correspond with each other.

    In time you will develop your very own list of Tarot card meanings.
