Tarot Card Meanings

Tarot card meanings are crucial to interpreting tarot card spreads properly. Study them. Learn them. But most importantly, make them your own.

Through working with tarot cards on a regular basis, they'll start to speak to you, giving you hints and tips as to their meaning, whether on their own or in a spread.

Whatever meanings you start with, the more you work with tarot cards, the better you understand them. Don't hesitate to listen to them and to modify general meanings into something more personal.

Tarot, in my opinion, isn't meant to be a rigid system of right and wrong. It is liquid and malleable and will change with you. It can be a lifelong process of refinement that is transformational - for both you and the cards!

Here are some tarot meanings, as they are for me right now. They will always be shifting and shuffling with me and don't be afraid to let them do the same for you.

Meaning of Each Tarot Card

Having the meaning of each tarot card is a crucial part of learning to read the cards properly. For each card in the tarot deck, the meaning changes whether upright or reversed and there is a spectrum of possible tarot card meanings as opposed to just one meaning.

The Meaning of Each Tarot Card section of the site groups the card meanings according to suit and number. The Major Arcana is still organized card by card.

That's why so much emphasis is placed on tarot card meanings - so much of the reading information and accuracy comes from properly understanding the tarot cards that you've been dealt.

The Tarot deck is comprised of 78 cards, 22 Major Arcana (Trumps) cards and another 56 cards, the Minor Arcana (Suits).
