The Hanged Man

Card Meaning When Upright

Wisdom, prudence, discernment, trials, sacrifice, intuition, divination, prophecy.

Card Description

The figure of a man hangs head down from a gallows, to which he is attached by a rope around one of his ankles. His arms are bound behind him, and one leg is crossed over the other. The gallows from which he hangs forms a Tau cross, while the figure—from the position of the legs--forms a cross. There is a halo around the head of the apparent martyr. It should be noted (1) that the tree of sacrifice is living wood, with leaves on it; (2) that the face expresses deep entrancement, not suffering; (3) that the figure, as a whole, suggests life in suspension, not death.

The Meanings of these Tarot Cards

This Covers You

This card gives the influence which is affecting the person or matter of inquiry generally, the atmosphere of it in which the other currents work.

Six of Swords from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Journey by water, route, travel, messenger, assistance.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

The voyage will be pleasant.

Card Description

A ferryman carries passengers in his raft to the far shore. The course is smooth, and the freight is light; the work is not beyond his strength.

This Crosses You

It shows the nature of the obstacles in the matter. If it is a favourable card, the opposing forces will not be serious, or it may indicate that something good in itself will not be productive of good in the particular connexion.

Seven of Wands from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

This is a card of valor—six are attacking one, but he has the upper hand. On the intellectual plane, it signifies discussion and debate; in business negotiations, trade wars, barter, competition. It is also a card of success—the combatant is on top and his enemies are unable to reach him.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

A dark child.

Card Description

A young man on a rocky hill brandishes a staff; six other staves are raised toward him from below.

This Crowns You

It represents (a) the Querent €™s aim or ideal in the matter; (b) the best that can be achieved under the circumstances, but that which has not yet been made actual.

Two of Cups from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Love, passion, friendship, affinity, union, consensus, sympathy, the relationship between men and women.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Favourable in things of pleasure and business, as well as love; also wealth and honour.

Card Description

A young man and woman pledge themselves to one another. Above their cups rises the Caduceus of Hermes, with a lion's head between its spread wings. It represents our desire to find a soul mate, by which desire Nature is sanctified.

This is Beneath You

It shows the foundation or basis of the matter, that which has already passed into actuality and which the Significator has made his own.

The Heirophant from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Marriage, alliance, captivity, servitude; also mercy and goodness; inspiration; the man to whom the Querent has recourse.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

The High Priest or Hierophant, called also Spiritual Father, and more commonly and obviously the Pope. It seems even to have been named the Abbot, and then its correspondence, the High Priestess, was the Abbess or Mother of the Convent. Both are arbitrary names. The insignia of the figures are papal, and in such case the High Priestess is and can be only the Church, to whom Pope and priests are married by the spiritual rite of ordination. I think, however, that in its primitive form this card did not represent the Roman Pontiff.

Card Description

He wears the triple crown and is seated between two pillars, but not those of the Temple guarded by the High Priestess. In his left hand he holds a scepter ending with the triple cross. With his right hand he gives the well-known ecclesiastical sign of esotericism, distinguishing between the surface and concealed parts of doctrine. At his feet are the crossed keys, and two priestly ministers in albs (priestly robes) kneel before him. He is the ruling power of external religion, as the High Priestess is the prevailing force of the esoteric power.

This is Behind You

It gives the influence that is just passed, or is now passing away.

Ace of Cups from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Immaculate love, joy, contentment, home, nourishment, abundance, fertility.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Inflexible will, unalterable law.

Card Description

A hand extending from a cloud bears a cup pouring out four streams. Calm water lies beneath, and on it are waterlilies. A dove bearing in its beak a communion wafer marked with a cross descends to place the wafer in the cup. Dew falls around the cup on all sides.

This is Before You

It shows the influence that is coming into action and will operate in the near future.

Queen of Cups from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Good, fair woman; honest, devoted woman, who will do service to the Querent; loving intelligence, and from it the gift of vision; success, happiness, pleasure; also wisdom, virtue; a perfect spouse and a good mother.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Sometimes denotes a woman of equivocal character.

Card Description

She is beautiful, fair, and dreamy; as if she sees visions in her cup. This is, however, only one of her sides; she sees, but she also acts, and her activity feeds her dream.

Your Self

Signifies the person or thing about which the question has been asked, and shows its position or attitude in the circumstances.

Queen of Swords from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Widowhood, female infertility, absence, sterility, mourning, deprivation, separation.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

A widow.

Card Description

Her right hand holds her weapon vertical, and the hilt rests on an arm of her throne. Her left hand is extended, the arm raised. Her expression is stern but humble; it suggests familiarity with sorrow. It does not represent mercy, and despite her sword, she is not a symbol of power.

Your House

Your environment and the tendencies at work therein which have an effect on the matter €”for instance, your position in life, the influence of immediate friends, and so forth.

The Lovers from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Attraction, love, beauty, trials overcome.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

The Lovers or Marriage. This symbol has undergone many variations, as might be expected from its subject. In the eighteenth century form, by which it first became known to the world of archaeological research, it is really a card of married life, shewing father and mother, with their child placed between them; and the pagan Cupid above, in the act of flying his shaft, is, of course, a misapplied emblem. The Cupid is of love beginning rather than of love in its fulness, guarding the fruit thereof. The card is said to have been entitled Simulacyum fidei, the symbol of conjugal faith, for which the rainbow as a sign of the covenant would have been a more appropriate concomitant. The figures are also held to have signified Truth, Honour and Love, but I suspect that this was, so to speak, the gloss of a commentator moralizing. It has these, but it has other and higher aspects.

Card Description

The sun shines above, and beneath is a great winged figure with arms extended, pouring down mystical influences. In the foreground are two human figures, male and female. They are naked before each other, like Adam and Eve when they first occupied Paradise. Behind the man is the Tree of Life, bearing twelve fruits. The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is behind the woman, with the serpent wrapped around it. The figures suggest youth, virginity, innocence, and love before it is contaminated by gross material desire. This is the card of human love; part of the Way, the Truth and the Life. In a very high sense, the card is a depiction of the Covenant and the Sabbath.

Your Hopes and Fears

Three of Swords from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Removal, absence, delay, division, separation, dispersion, and all that the design naturally signifies.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

For a woman, the flight of her lover.

Card Description

Three swords pierce a heart; there are clouds and rain behind.

The Final Result

The culmination which is brought about by the influences shewn by the other cards that have been turned up in the divination.

Three of Pentacles from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Occupation, trade, skilled labor; also nobility, aristocracy, renown, glory.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

If for a man, celebrity for his eldest son.

Card Description

This card shows a sculptor working in a monastery. Compare with the Eight of Pentacles: the apprentice or amateur in that card has received his reward and is now at work in earnest.
