Major Arcana

The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards which are numbered from 0

to 21. They show the Fool's Journey, which is the path we take

from our earliest awareness to finally becoming integrated and

fulfilled. Each card represents one step along the journey of inner

growth. This journey starts with the Fool, then proceeds to the

Magician, the High Priestess, the Empress, the Emperor, the

Hierophant, the Lovers, the Chariot, Strength, the Hermit, the

Wheel of Fortune, Justice, the Hanged Man, Death, Temperance,

the Devil, the Tower, the Star, the Moon, the Sun, Judgement, and

finally the World.

Not everyone goes through these stages in order, and sometimes

people tend to go back and forth a bit rather than in a straight

line. Some people also skip some of the steps. Everyone’s journey

is different.

Overall, the cards of the Major Arcana signify things with deep

and lasting meaning. They show universal themes.



Minor Arcana

The cards of the Minor Arcana depict things that are more a part

of our daily lives. They signify feelings, wishes, or events that

might be fleeting.

The Minor Arcana is divided into four suits: Swords, Cups,

Pentacles, and Wands. Each suit represents a different aspect of

our daily lives.

Swords represent the element of air, or the mind.

Associations: Logic, Truth, Intellect, Power.

Cups represent water, or the soul.

Associations: Feelings, Emotions.

Pentacles represent the element of earth, or the body (all that is


Associations: Physical being, Physical needs.

Wands represent fire, or intuition/willpower.

Associations: Imagination, Inspiration, Motion, Potential

Energy, Ambition, Effort.


Within each suit, there are cards numbered from Ace to Ten as

well as the Royal cards. Studying the numerology behind each

number is beyond the scope of this guide, but I would like to

briefly discuss the role of each member of the royal court.


The King of any suit is the ruler of that suit. That means he not

only possess all the characteristics of the suit, but to a greater

degree. He “rules” over the other cards of his suit. The King also

personifies the male attributes of his suit.


The Queen on the other hand personifies the female attributes of

a suit. Like the King, she also “rules” over the other cards of the

suit, serving to strengthen the King.

Both the King and the Queen represent authority figures. They are

mature adults.


The Knight is a servant of the King and Queen. Given his youth (he

is a young adult), he represents the qualities of the suit to a lesser

degree. He is sometimes seen as a messenger or seeker,
