Tarot Card Meanings

The first thing we want to know about tarot cards is what they mean. It's a world rich with images and symbols, different decks and traditions. Here are my personal takes on tarot that I've developed over my 16 years of working with the cards. The pages below sketch out a basic outline of my view on the cards that I've grown and continue to grow through experience reading for myself and others. My hope is to share my knowledge and approach with the goal of sending curious seekers off on their own tarot journeys as they develop their own interpreations of the cards. I'll be adding to these pages over the next few months, so be sure to check back as we travel through the entire 78-card deck.

The heart and soul of the tarot, the minors deal with the happenings of daily life, relationships, and events. The 56 cards are divided into four suits: wands, cups, swords, and pentacles.
