tarot cards meanings

The complete tarot card meanings list - All 78 tarot cards explained

I publish new articles regularly!

There are 78 different cards in the tarot deck, each with several meanings depending on the question you want an answer for. The Major Arcana cards represent the major aspects of our lives, while the Minor Arcana cards represent the more everyday aspects of our lives. In general, tarot cards can be interpreted to suggest ways we can improve our lives or specific situations we may find ourselves in.

When it comes to understanding the meanings of tarot cards, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.  First, there are no right or wrong interpretations. What one person sees in a card may be entirely different from what another person sees. Second, the meanings of tarot cards can vary depending on their position in a reading (upright or reversed) 

In the below articles, I offer my interpretation of every tarot card based on my experience reading tarot cards for over 10 years. I hope you find this information helpful, and that it provides some clarity and guidance on your tarot learning journey.
