The Meaning of Each Minor Arcana Cards

The Minor Arcana cards represent the events we experience as we journey through life. Different decks depict different stories but the symbolism, lesson learned or moral of the story is carried from deck to deck with only a few minor variations.

There are fourteen cards in each of the four suits, wands, cups, swords and pentacles; which are numbered 1-10 and followed by the court cards Page, Knight, Queen and King..

Tarot decks do vary and sometimes you’ll find that the suit of wands is called batons, cups referred to as chalices and pentacles are often called coins or discs..

There are many highs and lows depicted in the suit cards, which is an honest reflection of most people’s lives. Associating a story or a memory to a card is good way to remember its meaning and it also gives us a better understanding of the symbolism in the card rather than just memorizing the keywords.
