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.

Five of Cups from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Inheritance, patrimony, transmission of wealth, but not corresponding to expectations; marriage, but not without bitterness or frustration.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Generally favourable; a happy marriage; also patrimony, legacies, gifts, success in enterprise.

Card Description

A dark, cloaked figure looks sideways at three cups lying on the ground. Two others stand upright behind him. A bridge in the background leads to a small keep or holding. This is a card of loss, but something remains at the end; three have been taken, but two are left.

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 Swords from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Bad news, terror, crisis, rebuke, powerful obstacles, conflict, slander; also sickness.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

For a woman, scandal spread in her respect.

Card Description

A woman stands bound and blindfolded, with the swords of the card around her. It is a card of temporary imprisonment rather than permanent bondage.

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.

Death from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

End, mortality, destruction, corruption; also, for a man, the loss of a benefactor; for a woman, many inconsistencies; for a maiden, failure of marriage prospects.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Death. The method of presentation is almost invariable, and embodies a bourgeois form of symbolism. The scene is the field of life, and amidst ordinary rank vegetation there are living arms and heads protruding from the ground. One of the heads is crowned, and a skeleton with a great scythe is in the act of mowing it. The transparent and unescapable meaning is death, but the alternatives allocated to the symbol are change and transformation. Other heads have been swept from their place previously, but it is, in its current and patent meaning, more especially a card of the death of Kings. In the exotic sense it has been said to signify the ascent of the spirit in the divine spheres, creation and destruction, perpetual movement, and so forth.

Card Description

Death appears here as one of the apocalyptic visions rather than a grim reaper—to show change, transformation, and a passage from lower to higher. In the background lies the whole world of ascent in the spirit. In the foreground, the mysterious horseman moves slowly, bearing a black banner emblazoned with the Mystic Rose, which signifies life. Between two pillars on the horizon shines the sun of immortality. The horseman carries no visible weapon, but king and child and maiden fall before him, while a bishop with clasped hands awaits his end. The natural transition of man to the next stage of his being is one form of his progress. While still in this life, the exotic and almost unknown entrance into the state of mystical death is a change in the form of consciousness. It is the passage into a state to which ordinary death is neither the path nor the gate.

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 High Priestess from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Passion, moral or physical ardor, arrogance, surface knowledge.

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

The High Priestess, the Pope Joan, or Female Pontiff; early expositors have sought to term this card the Mother, or Pope's Wife, which is opposed to the symbolism. It is sometimes held to represent the Divine Law and the Gnosis, in which case the Priestess corresponds to the idea of the Shekinah. She is the Secret Tradition and the higher sense of the instituted Mysteries.

Card Description

She has the lunar crescent at her feet, a horned circlet on her head with a globe at its center, and a large solar cross on her chest. The scroll in her hands is inscribed with the word Torah, signifying the Greater Law, the Secret Law, and the second sense of the Word. It is partly covered by her mantle, to show that some things are implied and some spoken. She is seated between the black and white pillars—labeled B. and J.—of the mystic Temple. The veil of the Temple is behind her, embroidered with palms and pomegranates. Her clothing is flowing and gauzy, and her mantle suggests light—a shimmering radiance. She is the Secret Church, the House of God and man. She is the spiritual Bride and Mother, the daughter of the stars and the Higher Garden of Eden. She is the Queen of the borrowed light, which is the light of all. She is the Moon nourished by the milk of the Celestial Mother. In a way, she is also the Celestial Mother herself—the bright reflection of the moon. She is the Spiritual Bride of the Just Man. When the Just Man reads the Law (Torah), she gives the Divine meaning. There are some respects in which this card is the highest and holiest of the Major Arcana.

This is Behind You

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

Eight of Cups from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Great joy, happiness, feasting.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Perfect satisfaction.

Card Description

A dejected-looking man abandons the cups of his celebrations. They symbolize an enterprise, undertaking, or previous concern.

This is Before You

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

Four of Wands from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Prosperity, growth, cheerfulness, beauty, embellishment.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

A married woman will have beautiful children.

Card Description

From four staves planted in the foreground, a great garland hangs. Two female figures hold up bouquets. To one side is a bridge over a moat, leading to an old mansion.

Your Self

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

King of Swords from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Judgement and its associations; power, command, authority, military intelligence, law, offices of the state.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

A lawyer, senator, doctor.

Card Description

He sits in judgement, holding the sign of his suit. He recalls the Justice card from the Major Arcana, and he may represent this virtue, but he possesses earthly power over life and death, because he is King.

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.

Two of Wands from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

This card has contradictory meanings: on the one hand, riches, fortune, magnificence; on the other, physical suffering, disease, chagrin, sadness, mortification. The design gives a suggestion to resolve the contradiction; here is a lord overlooking his dominion while contemplating a globe. He resembles the sadness and mortification of Alexander, amid the grandeur of this world's wealth.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

A young lady may expect trivial disappointments.

Card Description

A tall man looks from a roof with battlements, overlooking sea and shore. He holds a globe in his right hand, and a staff in his left hand rests on the battlement. Another staff is fixed in a ring. The Rose and Cross and Lily appears on the left side.

Your Hopes and Fears

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.

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.

Seven of Pentacles from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Cause for anxiety regarding money someone wants to borrow.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Impatience, apprehension, suspicion.

Card Description

A young man leans on his staff, and looks intently at seven pentacles attached to a plant on his right. It looks as if these were his treasures, and as if his heart were there.
