Art of Tarot 3

In this series, we are taking the time to smell the roses, which for tarot lovers often means taking the time to really appreciate a single image of tarot art.  Today we look at the 10 of Cups from the Legacy of the Divine Tarot by Ciro Marchetti. You can see more HERE. Maybe it […]


The Justice card was, and sometimes still is, numbered as 8. Here, it is number 11. I prefer 11, probably because it is the way I originally learned it and because years ago I read 78 Degrees of Wisdom by Rachel Pollack. She made an argument for Justice being 11, for it being the dead […]

The Hermit

The Hermit card should be fairly easy to interpret. Yet I am surprised by how many people say that the Hermit is, among other things, a teacher. He really isn’t. He may teach by example simply by living his life, but the role of teacher is that of the Hierophant. But these days people would rather […]

The Sevens

In this series, we’ve been looking at numerological meanings and how they play out with the various suits. It is fun to do, but in my opinion, it falls apart about now. I can never determine on a keyword that relates to the energy of the seven that also relates in some way to each […]

The Chariot

This card usually features a charioteer, a chariot, and two creatures. There are variances, though. Sometimes the charioteer holds the reins; sometimes he does not. Sometimes the chariot has wheels, and others, it does not. Sometimes the creatures are moving; in other images, they sit still. Despite all of those possible symbolic representations, it is […]

The Fives

I cannot believe that I forgot to add the Fives after The Hierophant. I suppose the draw of Valentine’s Day was so strong, I just skipped over the troublesome Fives and went right for the Lovers. Quite understandable, don’t you think? So, now we consider the fives, representing change and instability and generally thought of […]

The Fours

In tarot, we often see the numbers as representing specific energy. As we mentioned in the Emperor, fours represent stability, or taken to a negative extreme, stagnation. Each of the suits in tarot also represents a specific energy. The Wands and Swords are active energy while the Cups and Pentacles are passive energy. It is […]

The Threes

Just as the Empress is a symbol of rich abundance, so the threes all have the feeling of culmination and saturation about them. In the 3 of Wands, you can often feel the strength of will drawing the desired event towards the character in the card. Whatever has been determined is just about to burst forth […]

III, The Empress

Although this card is called the Empress, we interpret it more as a Great Mother or Mother Nature rather than any sort of political ruler. There is little about this card that brings to mind human laws or social rules. Instead, this is a card of lush richness. Abundance. The glories of nature. These things […]
