The Complete List of The 56 Minor Arcana Tarot Cards & Their Meanings

I publish new articles regularly!

Tarot is a set of 78 cards that are used to help people gain insight into their lives and the potential future. A tarot deck has two parts: the major arcana and the minor arcana. There are 56 cards in the minor, and they relate to the day-to-day aspects of our lives. In Latin, minor arcana means “little secret” which is appropriate because the events they signify are usually hidden from our conscious awareness.

Each tarot card has its own unique meaning, and together they tell a story that can help you navigate your path through life and the situations that arise along the way. 

In the articles below, I explain the different meanings of each lesser arcana card in great detail and discuss how you can use them in your own life. I hope you find this information helpful!
