A tarot deck includes 78 cards:
A Fool, twenty-one individual Major Arcana cards, and 56 Minor Arcana cards — four suits with fourteen cards in each. In your online psychic reading, the psychic advisor will interpret the meanings of these cards in relation to their position in a tarot layout.
Many of the Major Arcana are well-known, such as the Death card or the Tower card. But the Minor Arcana are equally important, particularly if multiple cards from the same suit appear in your tarot reading.
The Minor Arcana suits are Wands, Cups, Coins and Swords. Each is associated with a classical element — earth, air, fire or water — and with a particularly class in feudal society. The combinations of these aspects provides signs for interpretation by an experienced online psychic.
The Wand suit, sometimes referred to as rods or staves, depicts images of long sticks with a few small leaves growing from each. Wands represent the classical element fire, which indicates energy and passion. In feudal society, the Wand suit referred to farmers, servants and other lower ranking society members. The underlying idea is that of simple people and simple desires.
The Cups, also called chalices, are associated with the classical element water. Each Cup card shows golden goblets in various configurations. The water element is tied to our ever-changing emotions, and Cups cards usually give signs regarding love and other strong emotions. The clergy were associated with the Cups suit in traditional Tarot, so Cups have come to signify events in our spiritual or religious lives, as well.
Coins, also called pentacles, are connected with the classical element earth. Gold disks inscribed with a pentacle are shown on each Coin card. Earth is the realm of our physical body and material possessions, so Coin cards usually indicate events in the physical world. Appropriately, merchants, traders and shopkeepers were the class associated with Coins in feudal society. Coin cards have become particularly relevant when interpreting questions about career and financial events.
The classical element air is represented by the Sword suit in Tarot. Long-bladed, silver swords appear on the front of each Sword card. Air has always represented freedom and change, and Sword cards are tied to actions that will change the outcome of situations. The military is the rank of feudal society associated with the Swords suit. Sword cards are therefore often interpreted in terms of our responsibilities, power and authority.
The suits of the Minor Arcana cards in the tarot deck play an important role in understanding the significance of each card in the Tarot layout during an online psychic reading. If a particular suit appears frequently, the associated area in your life may be at a crossroads. For example, many Cup cards may indicate that issues are arising in your personal relationships, allowing you to prepare for an emotional time ahead.
Understanding the underlying concepts can help you gain more insight from your Tarot reading and put the answers you receive into practice. By knowing which aspects are referenced in the Minor Arcana suits, you can put your online psychic reading into perspective in your own life.
