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.

The Sun from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

The same, in a lesser sense.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings (When Upright)

The Sun. The luminary is distinguished in older cards by chief rays that are waved and salient alternately and by secondary salient rays. It appears to shed its influence on earth not only by light and heat, but--like the moon--by drops of dew. Court de Gebelin termed these tears of gold and of pearl, just as he identified the lunar dew with the tears of Isis. Beneath the dog-star there is a wall suggesting an enclosure-as it might be, a walled garden-wherein are two children, either naked or lightly clothed, facing a water, and gambolling, or running hand in hand. Eliphas Levi says that these are sometimes replaced by a spinner unwinding destinies, and otherwise by a much better symbol-a naked child mounted on a white horse and displaying a scarlet standard.

Card Description

A naked child mounted on a white horse displays a red banner. The sun shining above represents consciousness in the Spirit—with direct, as opposed to reflected, light. The archetype of humanity has become a little child beneath its rays—a child in the sense of simplicity, with innocence in the sense of wisdom. In that simplicity, he bears the seal of Nature and Art; in that innocence, he signifies the restored world. When the self-knowing spirit has dawned in the consciousness above the natural mind, that mind is renewed and directs the animal nature in a state of perfect conformity.

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.

Eight of Wands from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Activity in undertakings, the path of such activity; swiftness, as that of an express messenger; great haste, great hope, speed toward an end that promises certain happiness; generally, things on the move; also the arrows of love.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Domestic disputes for a married person.

Card Description

This card represents motion through the unmoving—a flight of wands through an open countryside. They approach the end of their path. The future they signify is at hand; it may be even on the threshold.

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.

Five of Wands from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Imitation, as in a pretend fight, but also the battle of life—strenuous competition and the struggle of the search for riches and fortune. Thus, possibly a card of gold, gain, luxury.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Success in financial speculation.

Card Description

A group of youths brandish staves, as if in sport. They play at mock warfare, and the divinatory meanings match this.

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.

Eight of Pentacles from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Work, employment, jobs, craftsmanship; skill in craft and business, perhaps at an entry level.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

A young man in business who has relations with the Querent; a dark girl.

Card Description

An artist at his work in stone, which he exhibits in the form of trophies.

This is Behind You

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

Ace of Pentacles from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Perfect contentment, cheerfulness, ecstasy; also quick intelligence; gold.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

The most favourable of all cards.

Card Description

A hand extending from a cloud holds up a pentacle.

This is Before You

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

Six of Wands from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Fear, as if a powerful enemy is at the gate; treachery, disloyalty, as if the gates are being opened to the enemy; also extended delay.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Fulfillment of deferred hope.

Card Description

A horseman wearing a laurel crown holds a staff adorned with another laurel crown. Footmen with more staves are at his side.

Your Self

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

Nine of Swords from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Imprisonment, suspicion, doubt, reasonable fear, shame.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Good ground for suspicion against a doubtful person.

Card Description

A woman sits on her bed, sobbing, with swords on the wall above her. She grieves as if she knows of no sorrow like hers. It is a card of utter desolation.

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 Hanged Man from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Selfishness, the crowd, the citizenship.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings (When Upright)

The Hanged Man. This is the symbol which is supposed to represent Prudence, and Eliphas Levi says, in his most shallow and plausible manner, that it is the adept bound by his engagements. The figure of a man is suspended head-downwards from a gibbet, to which he is attached by a rope about one of his ankles. The arms are bound behind him, and one leg is crossed over the other. According to another, and indeed the prevailing interpretation, he signifies sacrifice, but all current meanings attributed to this card are cartomancists' intuitions, apart from any real value on the symbolical side. The fortune-tellers of the eighteenth century who circulated Tarots, depict a semi-feminine youth in jerkin, poised erect on one foot and loosely attached to a short stake driven into the ground.

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.

Your Hopes and Fears

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.

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.

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.
