Below, I present a list of ALL Tarot cards with their meanings. You can click on a particular card and get interpretation right away. For a deeper analysis, explore more meanings of the Tarot by going down at this page and looking at suits, numbers, arcanas and so on.
Pentacles: 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / ACE / King / Queen / Knight / Page
Swords: 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / ACE / King / Queen / Knight / Page
Major Arcana: these cards represent very important messages. They are like trumps. They represent the energies which you pay close attention to. Major Arcana tell you: look closely in here because this is what surrounds your situation most.
Let look at the example of how Major Arcana works. Let's just say you ask a question: "Does he love me?" and you pull out 3 cards in for a three card spread. Let's just assume you get cards like: The Fool, 2 of Cups and The Devil.
As you can see, 2 of the cards (The Fool and The Devil) belong to Major Arcana. One card (2 of Cups) belongs to minor arcana. This means that The Fool and The Devil govern your situation most. And 2 of Cups gives you an additional message.
How can we interpret such combination? Most likely, the interpretation would go something like this: he is till unsure and testing the waters playfully while a great relationship is very possible here once both of you start treating each other more seriously. In order to do that, both of you must get rid yourselves from self-imposed fears and go for it!

Minor Arcana: Tarot cards in Minor Arcana represent less important energies. But it does not mean they are not important. That's not the message. The message is to understand the relevance of importance compared to Major Arcana. Very often, you will get only Minor Arcana cards and sometimes you get a lot of Major Arcana cards. Of course, you get the mix as well.
Let's look at the example here. Let's say you do a 3 card reading with a question: "How do I get more money?"
And you get something like this: 2 of Cups, 9 of Swords and Temperance.
How can we interpret this combination in regards to our question?
We get 2 Minor Arcana cards: 2 of Cups and 9 of Swords. We interpret these energies as "look closely into your relationships as well as relationship with money. Then, evaluate your worries and identify which decisions you make based on fear and which ones you make based on inspiration. The lack of money is in your careless spending. Your relationship plays out an important role: does your mate makes you spend more than you should?
But we also get a Major Arcana card such as Temperance. In the context of your questions, it screams at you: "Do NOT overspend your money!" Now, in the context to other Minor Arcana cards, it urges you to learn to say "NO" to spending when your mate wants to. It also sends you a clear message: "Save more money and your worries will start to vanish".
If you checked out each Tarot card meaning presented in the list at the top of this page, then what I'm typing here should make perfect sense to you. Or just check out 2 of Cups, 9 of Swords and Temperance card meanings individually and it will make much greater sense. To learn more about Minor Arcana, click here.
Tarot deck has 4 suits in it: Wands, Pentacles, Cups and Swords.
Let's look at each suit for more details:
Suit Of Wands: they represent the element of Fire and for the most part, ACTION. Wands represent primal energies and Spiritual energies of the mind. They also represent creativity and what is very important to you. Wands are the cards that explain what makes you tick. In regards to a certain situation, they show what makes you tick in regards to a situation.
Wands represent creative energies. These energies can be yours or they can be applied to a certain question. For example, if you ask a question: "will we be happy together?" and you draw 5 of Wands, then you can see that conflicts will be created in the future between you. Since Wands represent creativity, you may be aware that in order to stay happy, you may consider to create a counterbalance to conflicts: peace and tranquility.
When it comes to Tarot card meanings, Wands often serve a very important role because they deal with your personality, ego, motivations, drives, ambitions and they often represent easily accessible energies to you. Keep in mind that Wands deal with both, internal and external energies. To learn more about Wands, click here.
Suit Of Pentacles: they represent the element of Earth and for the most part, deal with physical and material aspects. Suit of Pentacles shows you Earthy matters like money, work, physical health, how you take actions, how you manifest things when you act, how you manage things and so on. In other words, Pentacles deal with "how to" aspects as well.
Let's say you want to do a 2 card reading with a question: "How do I make him fall in love with me?" and you draw two cards: Page of Wands and Knight of Pentacles.
Remember that Wands is our creation and action cards? With Page of Wands, the suggestion is to freely express your passion around him. Flirt, tease, smile and be yourself! Be that happy teenager in love who cares less what others think. But with a Knight of Pentacles, when it comes to take things to a physical level, slow down.
Knight of Pentacles gives you a very direct suggestion NOT to jump straight into sex and show your self-control. With this combination, you can tease, flirt, make out and do all those cute things, but simultaneously - slow down until both of you are in a solid relationship. That's how pentacles work: they don't necessarily tell you to abandon, but to rather slow things down if needed (especially, with Knight of Pentacles).

Suit Of Cups: Suit of cups covers with emotional aspects of the situation and resonates with element of Water. It goes into feelings and depth. Think of love, romance, attraction and emotional drives when we are talking about Cups. It also covers your feelings of happiness or depression.
To put it simple, Cups cover emotions and intuition.
When we talk about Cups in Tarot cards meanings, we talk about "I feel" rather than "I think".
Let me give you a very simple example. Let's just say you want to know "Is she into me?" and you use three card spread on this situation.
You get something like: Three of Cups, King of Pentacles and Eight of Swords.
Since cups are feelings and Three of Cups goes into "I highly value the friendship" aspect of a relationship, then you can easily say that she is into you. But instead of jumping straight in the bed, she FEELS to take things slower, as friends first. King of Pentacles in this case represents that not only she likes you and into you, but she also plans to physically make you feel like a... King!
She plans to support you in your material and physical goals and you can be assured that you have a very compatible woman behind your back when it comes to achieving your material goals. Honesty and loyalty clearly show here.
But 8 of Swords indicates that she is not the first one who will make a move. You have to make it first. Otherwise, she will just sit and wonder until you make a move or she gives up and finds someone else.
Remember, when it comes to Tarot card meanings and you get the Cups, you are dealing with feelings and emotions. This is a very basic, yet very powerful lesson you can learn to avoid over complication of things. Learn more about Suit of Cups.
Suit Of Swords: they cover the element of Air and deal with mentality. "I think" is the motto of Suit of Swords. When it comes to Swords, they also cover aspects such as change, oppositions, various types of conflicts, different angles of opposition, attitudes, approaches, destructive forces, attention, concentration, power and paradigms.
Many readers think that Swords are very negative when it comes to Tarot card meanings. But this is not true at all.
Sure, cards like 8, 9 or 10 of Swords can send chills to someone but that usually comes down when a person feels hopeless to begin with,
Let me explain you how to deal with suit of Swords.
Instead of panicking, realize that this matter is calling on your attention. This means that a certain situation was probably neglected for too long and now is the right time to solve it. Treat it as inspiration and solution rather than a disturbing problem. And note that not all Sword cards are "bad".
Let's look at the example of how to interpret Sword cards. Let's just assume you have a question: "Will our relationship work out in a long run?"
And you do a three card spread, drawing Queen of Swords, 10 of Swords and Lovers.
Some people will get chills from this combination because thoughts like "this is the end and she is seeing someone else" may pop up. These are natural thoughts but let's take a deeper look into the meaning.
In this case, Queen of Swords represents a powerful female who is not typically yielding. She may also be going through some rough times, doing mental evaluations and lives "everything or nothing" approach, where it is her way or the highway... She will not tolerate weakness and she may be very tired of hardships. She may appear as cold-hearted and ignorant of others, but it can be an illusion. She may be craving warmth and love as well.
10 of Swords do indeed indicate that there is a possibility for a relationship to end OR in order to keep it, a strategy needs to be designed. In other words, if you just keep doing the same, most likely, it will end. But if you design a strategy, asking a question "How can our relationship be saved?" and laying out Tarot cards, then you may get a very clear-cut approach to turn this relationship into a blossoming one!
Again, Lovers as a Major Arcana reinforce just that. No, it is not "cheating" or "lovers on the side" even though it does indicate a great possibility in the future. Lovers is about choice. So, Lovers reinforce the other Minor Arcana cards by saying: "Look, it is your choice. It is up to you. If you want this relationship to end, it can. If you want to save it, make a new intention to do that".
Remember: the best use of Tarot cards and knowing their meanings is to look into situations and build strategies. It is not wise to interpret them as concrete outcomes because you always have a power of choice!

Court cards are considered to be one of the hardest to interpret because they associate with people.
I want to help you to dissolve this myth and teach you easy and effective way to interpret court card meanings.
When it comes to court cards, think of them as they represent COLLECTIVE ENERGIES or PERSONALITIES.
Think of them as types of people that they represent and only then, interpret them as people (or not) in particular situations. I will elaborate more on this later.
Tarot court cards consist of: Kinds, Queens, Knights and Pages. And they belong to a certain suit, like: Wands, Pentacles, Cups and Swords.
Think as Kings, Queens, Knights and Pages belong to a certain hierarchy: father (King), mother (Queen), teenager or young adult (Knight) and a child or early teen (Page).
As you already learned suits above, you know that Wands represent action and passion, Pentacles represent physical and material, Cups represent emotions and Swords represent mentality.
Therefore, we can form certain "keywords" about court cards. For example: Knight of Wands is like passionate teenager, Queen of Cups is like a nurturing loving mother, King of Swords is like a strict father and Page of Pentacles is like a nature-loving happy child.
Remember, we are just learning association here and it does not mean that if you draw a Page of Pentacles when you ask "How can I make more money?", you need to have a nature-loving child or spend time on the nature with children, or it has to do anything with children at all.
In that case, the advice would be "Achieve tangible results with no rush, make concrete plans and enjoy what you are doing, being happy like a nature-loving child". How do we come to such a conclusion?
We look at the Suit first: pentacles. It is about material and physical. Then, we look at the court card: page. Since it is "like a child", we need to go back to basics. Basics are: make concrete plans, the foundation. And since it is Pentacles again, we understand that we need to concentrate on DOING things, or achieving on the physical plane.
This is an example of how to interpret Court Cards for situations.

Now you will learn how to read Tarot cards by numbers and what do they mean. It is very useful to know Tarot number meanings because occasionally, you may pull out several cards with same numbers.
For example, you may ask a question: "What does he think of me?" and you may get 4 of Wands and 4 of Swords simultaneously. We will get to that interpretation later. For now, let's look at the meanings of numbers in Tarot:
Aces: They are like 1's. They represent a new beginning and creation. Think of Ace as "new". Aces also represent unity and raw energy. This is where things start. When you read for a particular challenge and draw an Ace, it is a high indicator that new solution will be presented.
Two: representation of balance, relationships, choices but can also be a representation of opposition. However, more often than not, two's represent balance in unity. They often suggest to balance things out when presented with a challenge. Two's also call for peace and understanding, rather than hectic actions.
Tree: representation of creation. When you get threes, it means that creation can be in progress, or will begin. Three's also deal with time, opportunity, new visions and deep intuition. They also represent things like leadership, friendships, good news and successful continuation of beginning, unless you draw 3 of Swords - which represents an opposition to that.
Four: representation of stability and steady flow. When you draw fours, the general message is that "things are stable". Also, think of it as "don't fix it if it is not broken" approach. Fours also represent abundance and natural flow. And they deal with solid structure as well.
Five: representation of unpredictability with possible destruction. Conflicts, sadness, fights and struggle can be most common messages of 5's. When you get them, the message is to look deep within a root of the problem, because this is where solution can be found.
Six: when it comes to number six in Tarot, the general advice is to look in which suits it appears. That's because number six does not generally have a solid set of meaning and we can easily assign "anything goes with six" or "unpredictability" to it. Also, six represents sensitive matters that require attention.
Seven: generally, sevens represent victory over situations and others. They also deal with imagination and mysticism. When it comes to sevens, the message can be "use imagination to win" or "illusions can win over you". Sevens are generally good numbers that can represent an unexpected positive change.
Eight: representation of evaluation. The message in here is to look closely at the situation you are asking about. If you like how it is, evaluate for future growth. If you don't, evaluate for new ideas on how to change it. Number eight deals with mentality, thinking and judging for making future plans.
Nine: representation of completion. When you get nine's, it is generally a good sign. But again, look at the suits you get them in. For example, Nine of Cups and Nice of Pentacles are great indicators of success, while Nine of Swords with Nine of Wands can represent challenges. Think of nines as good completion or something is pushing you for one.
Ten: representation of completion with new beginning. Tens usually tell you "ok, this cycle is waiting for a new beginning". However, look at the suit to determine how pleasant completion itself would be. For example, with Ten of Swords or Wands, it can rather be a forceful completion which may not feel easy while with Ten of Cups and Pentacles things appear to be fun and easy.
Back to out interpretation...
What would 4 of Wands and 4 of Swords mean in regards to what someone things of you?
The person thinks that you are stable and fulfilled, mentally relaxed and know how to enjoy spending time at home or outside. It is a mental image of tranquility on most situations. It also represents someone as self-reliant rather than needy and someone who has a great deal of gratitude.
