The Magician shows you which way to go, but you need to do the walking, and then make the right decisions. The cards won’t do it for you.

The Magician opens new opportunities and grants you a certain mastery over the unknown and the unexpected. Since it is, by definition, quite unpredictable, you should do a lot of thinking before you commit to any specific course.

The High Priestess Tarot Card

The High Priestess Tarot is also a symbol of Shekinah, the presence of God among us in Jewish theology.
The High Priestess is a positive arcanum symbolizing the importance of thought during a slow setup for a project.
If you have the High Priestess in your drawing, it will allow you to reach your goals, but it will require more efforts than the Magician arcanum would.
The High Priestess is also a card that stresses the importance of intuition, inspiration, patience, and stability.

In a professional context, it will put any desire for a raise, a promotion, or a different job… on the right track!
The High Priestess asks for a long time spent thinking about any decision before you make it. It also indicates that your ongoing project will be achieved, but not in the short term.
The danger that should be avoided is to isolate yourself to make your decisions, to be content with your loneliness and live in seclusion.
Do not make any decision on your own. Ask the people involved in your project for input. Do not make every decision for them.

The High Priestess Tarot - Major Arcana Tarot Card

The High Priestess Tarot ~ Spiritual awareness.
Meditation. Silence. Secrets. Inner wisdom.
Psychic powers. Mysticism. Feelings. Dreams.

This is not a time for reflection, but for successful action driven by intelligence. Your mind will be full of original ideas.

With the Emperor you will achieve your goals if you are confident, realistic, and have a dominant spirit. This arcanum requires a full commitment.

The Emperor implies that you need to affirm yourself in your domain and move forward by making a show of inner and outer strength.

The Emperor advises you not to waste much time in making your decisions. Even if you should take other people’s advice and opinions into account and avoid any isolation, here the arcanum implies that you need to make your decisions without wasting any time.

Your projects will have a high chance of coming true if you are steadfast, confident, and realistic.
You will have to work hard to achieve your goals, and not give up until you eventually achieve victory in your project.
When you draw the Emperor, you should learn the lessons from past challenges, stop lamenting your situation, and stride boldly towards the future.
To succeed, you will need to move beyond soft, weak, and indecisive people and leave them behind – without crushing them either – for they would only slow you down.

Foundations. Leadership. Management.
Structure. Stubborn. Controlling. Authority.

The Hierophant Tarot Card

The arcanum bears the number 5, an odd number that is a sign of movement. The Hierophant is respectable. You listen to his advice and instructions and for you to follow them.
He protects ongoing projects by granting his blessing. He provides mighty protection and ensures favorable conditions for the fulfillment of your projects. His benevolence and wisdom facilitate the fulfillment of all your projects.

The Hierophant tells you that you can start new endeavors with confidence. It does not mean that you won’t have anything to do, but that all your actions will have positive effects that will be crowned with success.

The Hierophant has a positive influence on matters related to work or health, slightly less so for matters related to love or material comfort.
The Hierophant indicates that your mind will be your best asset to succeed. It also indicates that you will have the appropriate talent to see the bigger picture, take things into consideration, and make the right decisions.
However, you will not overcome hostile forces opposing your success unless you can show your righteousness, without trying to crush others on your way.
There is no merit in humiliating an opponent or adversary, it only breeds resentment that will eventually find its way back to you!

The importance of social approval; the need to conform to society.

The Lovers Tarot Card

Someone drawing the Lovers might undergo slight emotional discomfort as they make a decision, one way or another.
They should avoid making a decision in urgency under the yoke of emotions, because it won’t be a good one, either for your family or your loved ones.

This might trigger disastrous consequences for your family and friends.
This arcanum is often drawn by people who don’t have enough experience in life yet, not knowing which way to turn, which makes their advice so potentially dangerous. This is the case for people who are currently evolving, subject to changes in every aspect. With experience, their decisions will be more mature.
The constant dance of hesitation is gnawing at these beings that have, or can develop, a fragile health, both physically and emotionally, and also suffer from a troubled romantic situation.
When you draw the Lovers it usually means that you have a decision to make, and you need to make it fast either way. The longer you wait before you make your decision, the worse the situation will get.

The Lovers Tarot - Major Arcana Tarot Card

The Lovers Tarot ~ Love. Relationships. Choices.
Decisions. Matters of the heart. Spiritual path.
Temptation. Commitment. Attraction.

The presentation of the lovers card usually indicates a deep, soulmate-like connection with another individual. Although typically indicative of a romantic connection, it doesn’t have to be. You may have also found your “platonic soulmate.”

Upright Meaning: Choice, temptation, attraction. The struggle between sacred and profane love. Harmony of the inner and outer aspects of life.

Reversed Meaning: Quarrels, infidelity, danger of a broken marriage. Need to stabilize the emotions. Possibility of a wrong choice.

Strength is the card of vitality, good health, and great mental and physical shape. It highlights a taste for taking risks, and of fighting against someone who will drive them to constantly further their own limits.
That person does not like things that are too easy to get. They are motivated by things that are hard to obtain. The journey matters more than the final end goal.
This is one of the best cards you can draw in a reading to get whatever you need on a spiritual level.

Strength Tarot - Major Arcana Tarot Card

That is most helpful for both you and them.

He represents taking a short break away from your hopes and dreams to focus on the big picture. If you have the Hermit in a tarot reading, you should be careful and keep your eyes open in anything you undertake.

You might know a period of isolation and loneliness. This might trigger some mental blocks, weariness about wasted efforts and energy, and even send you feelings of sadness and discouragement!

The Wheel of Fortune is constantly spinning. It can provide solutions to all your problems and let you overcome many obstacles. The Fortune in the name does not refer to wealth, but to luck.

It brings positive changes, success, and achievements. This arcanum puts transom chance and providence on your side. It has a positive influence on professional activities, contracts, business, travels, and the arts.

The Justice Tarot Card

Justice is a positive arcanum by nature, even if its consequences might seem hard to bear sometimes. Your inner strength will be all the greater for it.
Above all, do not sacrifice your conscience or your core principles to make a decision that would make it easier on your personal comfort or diminish your responsibilities, because even if you can hide from others, you cannot hide from yourself.

Even if you managed to fool your audience, you would feel the pangs of your conscience should you make a hasty decision that runs against what you believe in!
This card often heralds a confrontation with some institutions: public service, justice, the authorities.

It might be about upcoming exams or interviews. It also deals with business practices, contracts, and signed agreements… Remember, if you draw this card it means that some balance has been upset, and you need to restore the harmony that was lost!

The Hanged Man Tarot Card

The symbols combined indicate that life is a fragile thing and could be gone in a blink.
When you draw this arcanum in a spread, you need to remember what life is worth, and make the most of it every day.
People who do not take the Hanged Man into account in their reading will face more troubles and challenges than their current psychic and organic weakness will bear in their fight against adversity.

Fortunately, if they choose to react they will see that they have enough intellectual resources to take the entire situation into account and overcome their obstacles by looking at the big picture.

The Hanged Man is a symbol of lack of confidence, of an upcoming period of obstacles that will require introspection and re-assessment in order to be overcome. It might also herald a betrayal, a sacrifice that must be made, or any other kind of effort required for success.

The Hanged Man Tarot ~ Sacrifice.
Patience.Stress. New perspective.
Gaining wisdom. Surrender.
Soul growth. Introspection.

Don’t try to resist, or you will end up making the situation even worse.

The Death Tarot Card

The Death arcanum calls for intelligence, reflection, and reason in order to make the right choices without any rush, but without excessive hesitation either.

This arcanum symbolizes the triumph of life over death, or even reincarnation. It hints at some hidden spiritual potential, lying dormant in your soul, which has to be awakened in order to move on.
This is a “positive” card that calls for some in-depth transformations, as well as thorough introspection to find genuine solutions to a problem.

Death Tarot - Major Arcana Tarot Card

Death Tarot ~ Final ending. Transformation.
Letting go. Mourning. Releasing the past.
Finding closure. Change. End of a cycle- new beginning.

Don’t be too freaked out if this card appears in your spread. The death card doesn’t necessarily mean you or someone you care about is going to die. Instead, “death” just refers to an ending or a change – and likely, a permanent one. Depending on how you look at it, this doesn’t have to be a bad thing. For all you know, you could be shutting the door on something that was no good for you, in order to open up the opportunity to embrace something new that is.

Death asks you not to worry or panic when facing the essential modifications that you need to undertake if you do not want to miss out on life.
A great courage is the only thing that will allow you to untangle tough situations or finally discover the true intentions of people you thought you knew well.

Upright Meaning: Transformation, change, destruction followed by renewal. The change may be in consciousness. Birth of new ideas, new opportunities.

Reversed Meaning: Disaster, political upheaval, revolution, anarchy. Death of a political figure. Temporary stagnation. Tendency to inertia.

Temperance says that it is time to look for some harmony in every aspect of your life, striving for a full balance of your body, mind, and soul.

Temperance is a very spiritual arcanum, because it implies mastery over your passions and emotions so that they do not dominate you.
This also asks you to solve your own contradictions, and you should not hesitate to undertake a great introspective work to that regard.

Temperance says that you will know how to adapt to any situation. It will also allow you to undergo vast improvements in your relationships with your loved ones. It will grant you a sense of discernment, clearer thoughts, and great analysis skills.

Temperance Tarot

Temperance Tarot ~ Patience. Balance.
Moderation. Creation. Health. Integration.
Finding solutions. Blending. Self- control. Compromise.

The Devil Tarot Card

The arcanum of the Devil grants you the power to dominate the material world, and symbolizes the expression of feelings of pride and selfishness.
The Devil expresses the manifestation of emotions that are extremely human, and that are detrimental to your goals, such as your tendency for evil, calumny, or the urge for disorder and violence.

This drawing indicates that your temptation is strong, and mainly motivated by pride and the swift fulfillment of all your desires.
As hinted by its symbolism, the Devil urges you to express the darker aspects of your personality.

It advocates the use of physical strength, as well as tricks, cons, and manipulations of all kinds to fulfill your material and sensual desires.
Someone drawing the Devil cards unveils that they are deeply attracted to purely material needs and satisfactions, the pleasure of the senses up to the extreme. That person is also drawn to domination and power over others. They have fewer scruples and will do anything to achieve their goals.
But the Devil also means that this person has a great vitality, a great sexual appetite, and an uncanny dynamism that is rarely fully satisfied.
This person is also gifted with great intelligence and great sensitivity, leaning to end-less self-questioning and deep unquenched lack of satisfaction.

The Devil Tarot - Major Arcana Tarot Card

The Devil Tarot ~ Personality disorders.
Power struggles. Attachment. Obsession.
Sex. Lust. Aggression. Infidelity.
Addictions. Materialism. Debt. Taboo

This card corresponds to “the devil on your shoulder,” or the dark aspects of your inner self. It typically refers to the items in your life you indulge in that give you short-term pleasure but long-term suffering. This card encourages you to confront those negative habits and replace them with positive, self-affirming ones that bring you closer to reaching your best self.

Upright Meaning: Black magic, discontent, depression. Illness. Wrong use of force. Bondage to the material; sensation divorced from understanding.

Reversed Meaning: The beginning of spiritual understanding. Removing the chains of bondage to the material. Timidity, failure to make decisions. The overcoming of pride and self-interest.

The Tower Tarot Card

The Tower is a negative arcanum in almost every situation. It is a sign of failed projects. It can also warn about a great upcoming problem that will need to be dealt with.

The Tower can be a symbol of conflict, disagreement, and destruction. In this context, it is a symbol of unpleasant events: bankruptcy, accident, breakup, failure, physical or psychological weakness…!
You thus need to be extremely careful whenever this card is drawn. It heralds the arrival of unexpected events that will be hard to cope with. Any aspect of life might be affected: Love, Work, Health, Money, Luck… leading to troubled times.

The Tower can also be a sign of disagreement within your family, or in your relationships with your friends, colleagues, or anyone you are in frequent contact with.
Drawing the Tower indicated that the lessons of your past failures have yet to be learned. You might have to deal with the consequences of your mistakes and pay a heavy price if you fail to learn something from them.

The Tower Tarot - Major Arcana Tarot Card

The Tower Tarot ~ Disaster. Devastation. Chaos.
Sudden shock. Release old energy. Drastic change. Awakening to consciousness.
Unstable foundations. Psychological breakdown.

Interestingly enough, the presence of the tower in a spread is much more terrifying than that of death or the devil. This card signifies great destruction approaching in your life, which can leave you feeling obliterated. All you can do is buckle down, duck for cover, and wait it out. Then, once its over, you can focus on rebuilding and regrowing into an even better person than you were before.

Upright Meaning: Change, conflict, catastrophe. Overthrow of existing ways of life, old notions upset. Disruption will bring enlightenment in its wake. Selfish ambition is about to come to naught bankruptcy.

Reversed Meaning: The gain of freedom of body or mind at great cost. False accusations, false imprisonment, oppression.

The Moon Tarot Card

The Moon is also a symbol of imagination and intuition that can set you free from your own limitations. Someone drawing the Moon in a spread should have a sharp intuition, and their mind will burst with creativity.

However, the Moon is also the world of dreams, illusions, fantasies, and lies. It might indicate that you should beware when imagination runs too wild, and thus keep it in check.
Indeed, it is important to keep a certain level of reflection before you let yourself be carried away by illusions regarding potential solutions to your problems.

The fertile imagination symbolized by the Moon does not mean you should withdraw to an imaginary world and refuse to deal with your problems, but that using your creativity is a way to actually solve them.
This drawing also indicates a favorable intellectual period where you can find solutions to problems that seemed impossible to overcome.

Drawing this arcanum is a sign of a certain instability in social relationships, or humanitarian activities.
The Moon can also highlight a difficult relationship with figures of authority, the administration, or politics.
The Moon is a sign of creative but boisterous times, because all your certitudes, prejudices, and ready-made ideas will be challenged in every aspect of your life.
The Moon urges you to get rid of the past and see the big picture in your life in order to avoid repeating past mistakes that had led you into a dead end.

The Moon Tarot - Major Arcana Tarot Card

The Moon Tarot ~ Shadow side. Intuition. Confusion.
Sadness. Deception. Moods and emotions. Feminine.
Dreaming. Darkness. Cycles.

This card typically indicates the presence of repressed emotions. If you’ve been through a scary or painful experience in the past and never really confronted it, the moon is telling you that it is affecting your life and needs to be dealt with.

Upright Meaning: Intuition, imagination, deception. Unfoldment of latent psychic powers. Unforeseen perils, secret foes. Bad luck for one you love.

Reversed Meaning: Imagination will be harnessed by practical considerations. Storms will be weathered, peace gained at a cost. No risk should be taken.

The Sun represents the supreme Light that must be reached, but also the required awareness to do it. The restored childhood mind can thus help you get rid of your animal nature and reach inner harmony.

Drawing the Sun is extremely favorable in a reading because it has a positive influence in every domain: love, work, health, and money.
The Sun is a sign of success and happiness in any endeavor.
Obstacles are fading away before you without asking for a lot of efforts.

Everything becomes easy as you find the required mental and physical resources to overcome any situation.
You will also manage to fulfill your desires, even those that had been left unsatisfied for so long.

The Judgement Tarot Card

This arcanum represents the Last Judgment, the day of reckoning where the Angel blows a trumpet that calls the dead out of their graves.

Judgment is a symbol for psychic resurrection, a positive renewal of your state of mind and way of thinking that will affect your everyday life.
It can also signal the end of a problem currently affecting you in a negative way, something that might have been going on for quite a while. Drawing this arcanum will have positive effects on your personal, professional, or romantic relationships.

Judgment indicates that you should soon fulfill one of your desires or needs, or a project that you have worked on for a while. Your intuition will lead you to new paths to be explored, even if it means facing the unknown. Trust your instincts if they lead you on that path, because they will know what is good for you.
Drawing the Judgment arcanum means that in order to change your existence, you should avoid repeating the same behavior that led to the problems you currently have to face. Act in a different way and you will see that it will change for the better!

Judgement Tarot

Judgement Tarot ~ Change. A shift in consciousness.
Higher calling. Release old identity. Feeling judged.
Healing old wounds. Final decision. Outcome.

You may be at the cusp of making a decision that will set your life on two completely different trajectories, depending on what you choose. You will have to employ intellect and intuition to figure out which road is the best to take in order to reach your best self.

Upright Meaning: A life well lived, a work well done. Awakening, renewal. Legal judgments in one’s favor. A change of personal consciousness, which is now on the verge of blending with the universal.

Reversed Meaning: Weakness, disillusion. Fear of death; failure to find happiness. Separation, divorce. Possible loss of worldly goods.
