Minor Arcana Tarot

The Tarot cards are divided into two parts Major and Minor Arcana is one of these two parts. The Minor Arcana is a deck of 56 cards and is further divided into four Suits of Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles (or Coins). Each Suit in the Minor Arcana represents a specific aspect of life or human experience.

Cups: Symbol of emotions, relationships, intuition, and the realm of the heart and associated with the water element.


Wands: Symbol of creativity, passion, ambition, and personal growth, and associated with the fire element and represent the realm of action and inspiration.

Pentacles: Symbol of material possessions, finances, practicality, and the physical realm, and associated with the element of earth and indicate matters related to work, money, and the physical world.

Swords: Represents Reflect intellect, thoughts, communication, and challenges and are associated with the air element and often indicate mental and intellectual matters.


Each suit consists of 14 cards, numbered from Ace to 10, followed by four court cards: Page, Knight, Queen, and King. The numbered cards generally represent different levels or aspects of the suit's theme, while the court cards represent individuals or personalities. The Minor Arcana cards represent the more mundane everyday, personal side of a journey through life depicted by Major Arcana Cards. When the Minor Arcana cards are combined with the Major Arcana cards in a tarot reading, these cards give a more comprehensive understanding of a situation or question.
