Tarot Minor Arcana
The four Suits of the Tarot Card Deck
The Tarot card deck consists of two parts - the Major Arcana (also called Trumps) with 22 cards and the Minor Arcana with the remaning 56 cards in four suits: Wands, Pentacles, Cups, and Swords. Here the four suits are presented, with links to all their cards and what they mean in divination.
The Minor Arcana is close to regular playing card decks, but with one card extra in each suit: the Page. So, each suit has 14 cards from Ace to King. Also, each suit represents its own perspective on life, indicated by the symbol of that suit.
Here are the four suits and what they mean in Tarot card divination:
Wands correspond to Clubs in a regular deck of cards. Their Greek element is earth. They stand for everything earth-bound and concrete. In the four classes of feudal society, this suit is linked to that of agriculture, the peasants. When a Wands card appears in a reading, its message is concrete: something to do or something done, work and struggle but also their reward in palpable results.|

When a Pentacles card appears in a reading, its message regards matters of economy, but also thoughts, study, plans - anything abastract, present in the mind but not yet in one's hands, either not yet or because of its nature never.|

Cups correspond to Hearts in a regular deck of cards. Their Greek element is water. They stand for everything emotional - what we feel, whether or not we actually live it. In the four classes of feudal society, this suit is linked to that of the clergy, since the church and religion is all about emotions. When a Cups card appears in a reading, its message is always about things of an emotional nature: Worries, delights, temptations, hopes, affections, disappointments, and so on. Events or situations that primarily affect the heart.|

Swords correspond to Spades in a regular deck of cards. Their Greek element is fire. They stand for forceful action, power, and firm decision. In the four classes of feudal society, this suit is linked to that of the aristocracy, the warriors and rulers. When a Swords card appears in a reading, its message is about action needed or already commenced, drastic change because of necessity or circumstance, ambition, competition, defense, and other things that demand resolve and bold activity.|
