Tarot Cards are tools used for Tarot Divination, using the arcana and the meaning of the cards to predict events that are coming to pass. Each card has a meaning and, applied properly, a skilled user can understand the future to an extent.
The Fool card was akin to the ace. Depending on the game being played, it was often the lowest card or the highest. Valueless or highly valued. Powerless or powerful.
The High PriestessEdit
The High Priestess addresses the veil of awareness, about intuition. For those of us who know about the practice, it has a second meaning. Connections.
The Hanged ManEdit
The Hanged Man suggests suspension. Patience, waiting to act to achieve a better outcome. Being stuck. Despite the implications of the name, the man is often depicted hanging from his ankle, not his throat.
Victory, control, overcoming obstacles. It can mean travel, reaching a new point in life. It suggests aggression finding a clear outlet, being honed, often in the frame of being articulate, winning arguments, and confidence. The black and white sphinxes that pull the chariot frequently refer to mysteries, and the stance of the man in the chariot suggests will being enforced, not strength. Schemes, rhetoric, arguments, travel, it might point to some reckless path to ruin, or to glory.
Two of WandsEdit
Choice, contemplation. On the brink of a decision.
Five of CoinsEdit
Poverty, adversity, loss. In practitioner circles, one’s ‘wealth’ is usually measured in terms of power, so a loss of powers. Might be being forsworn, might be a loss of something else that’s vital.
Ten of SwordsEdit
A loss so complete you don’t need to worry about further losses. There’s a kind of peace you have to make in the face of absolute failure.
