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.

Two of Pentacles from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Elation and recreation; also news and messages in writing, as obstacles; agitation, trouble, entanglement.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Troubles are more imaginary than real.

Card Description

A young man dances with a pentacle in either hand. They are joined by an endless cord: the number 8 on its side.

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.

The Fool from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Folly, mania, extravagance, intoxication, delirium, frenzy, betrayal.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

The Fool, Mate, or Unwise Man. Court de Gebelin places it at the head of the whole series as the zero or negative which is presupposed by numeration, and as this is a simpler so also it is a better arrangement. It has been abandoned because in later times the cards have been attributed to the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and there has been apparently some difficulty about allocating the zero symbol satisfactorily in a sequence of letters all of which signify numbers. In the present reference of the card to the letter Shin, which corresponds to 200, the difficulty or the unreason remains. The truth is that the real arrangement of the cards has never transpired. The Fool carries a wallet; he is looking over his shoulder and does not know that he is on the brink of a precipice; but a dog or other animal--some call it a tiger--is attacking him from behind, and he is hurried to his destruction unawares. Etteilla has given a justifiable variation of this card--as generally understood--in the form of a court jester, with cap, bells and motley garb. The other descriptions say that the wallet contains the bearer's follies and vices, which seems bourgeois and arbitrary.

Card Description

With light step, as if earth and its obstacles had little power to restrain him, a young man in gorgeous clothing pauses at the brink of a precipice among the great heights of the world; he surveys the blue distance before him—its expanse of sky rather than the landscape below. He seems to still be walking, though he is stationary at the given moment; his dog is still bounding. The edge that opens on the depth holds no terror for him, as if angels were waiting to uphold him, should he leap from that height. His face is full of intelligence and expectant wonder. He has a rose in one hand and in the other an expensive cane, which hangs over his right shoulder, dangling a curiously embroidered pouch. He is a prince of the other world, traveling through this one—all in the glory of the crisp morning air. The sun, which shines behind him, knows where he came from, where he is going, and how he will return: by another path, after many days. He is the Spirit in search of experience.

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.

Page of Pentacles from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Application, study, scholarship, reflection; also command, management.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

A dark youth; a young officer or soldier; a child.

Card Description

A youthful figure looks intently at the pentacle that hovers over his raised hands. He moves slowly, ignoring what is around him.

An attack on the fortune of the Querent.

A scornful man watches two retreating and dejected figures, whose swords lie on the ground. He carries two others on his left shoulder. A third sword in his right hand points to earth. He is the master in possession of the field.

The Moon from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Instability, changeability, silence, lesser degrees of deception and error.

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

The Moon. Some eighteenth-century cards shew the luminary on its waning side; in the debased edition of Etteilla, it is the moon at night in her plenitude, set in a heaven of stars; of recent years the moon is shewn on the side of her increase. In nearly all presentations she is shining brightly and shedding the moisture of fertilizing dew in great drops. Beneath there are two towers, between which a path winds to the verge of the horizon. Two dogs, or alternatively a wolf and dog, are baying at the moon, and in the foreground there is water, through which a crayfish moves towards the land.

Card Description

In this card the moon is waxing on what is called the side of mercy, to the right of the observer. It has sixteen chief and sixteen secondary rays. Drops of dew descend from above. Beneath are two towers, between which a path winds up to the horizon. A wolf and dog are baying at the moon, and in the foreground there is water, through which a crayfish moves toward the land. The card represents life of the imagination, apart from life of the spirit. The path between the towers is our path into the unknown. The dog and wolf are the fears of the natural mind in the presence of that mystery, when there is only reflected light to guide it.

This is Before You

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

The Emperor from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Benevolence, compassion, recognition; also confusion to enemies, obstruction, immaturity.

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

The Emperor, by imputation the spouse of the former. He is occasionally represented as wearing, in addition to his personal insignia, the stars or ribbons of some order of chivalry. I mention this to shew that the cards are a medley of old and new emblems. Those who insist upon the evidence of the one may deal, if they can, with the other. No effectual argument for the antiquity of a particular design can be drawn from the fact that it incorporates old material; but there is also none which can be based on sporadic novelties, the intervention of which may signify only the unintelligent hand of an editor or of a late draughtsman.

Card Description

He has a form of the Crux ansata (like an Ankh) for his scepter and a globe in his left hand. He is a crowned monarch—commanding, stately, seated on a throne. The arms of his throne have rams' heads on the front. He is execution and realization, the power of this world, clothed with the highest of its natural attributes. He is the virile power to which the Empress responds, and in this sense, he is the one who seeks to remove the Veil of Isis; yet she remains a virgin.

Your Self

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

Six of Cups from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Children play in an old garden, their cups filled with flowers. A card of the past and of memories, as if looking back on childhood.

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.

Queen of Cups from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Good woman; otherwise, distinguished woman but one not to be trusted; perverse woman; vice, dishonor, depravity.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

A rich marriage for a man and a distinguished one for a woman.

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 Hopes and Fears

King of Pentacles from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Reversed

Vice, weakness, ugliness, perversity, corruption, peril.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

An old and vicious man.

Card Description

The face is rather grim, suggesting courage, but is also somewhat lethargic. The bull's head should be noted as a recurrent symbol on the throne.

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.

Strength from the Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck

Card Meaning When Upright

Power, energy, action, courage, generosity; also complete success and honors.

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Fortitude. This is one of the cardinal virtues, of which I shall speak later. The female figure is usually represented as closing the mouth of a lion. In the earlier form which is printed by Court de Gebelin, she is obviously opening it. The first alternative is better symbolically, but either is an instance of strength in its conventional understanding, and conveys the idea of mastery. It has been said that the figure represents organic force, moral force and the principle of all force.

Card Description

A woman, over whose head is the same symbol of life seen in the Magician card, closes the jaws of a lion. Her benevolent strength has already subdued the lion, which is being led by a leash of flowers. Fortitude, in one of its most exalted aspects, is connected with the Divine Mystery of Union. It connects also with untouched innocence, and with the strength that resides in contemplation. These higher meanings are hinted at in a concealed manner by the leash of flowers, which signifies the sweet yoke and the light burden of Divine Law, when it has been taken into the heart of hearts. The card has nothing to do with ordinary self-confidence—it concerns the confidence of those whose strength is God and have found their refuge in Him. In one sense, the lion signifies the animal passions, and the lady called Strength signifies the higher nature of Man in his liberation. The higher nature of Man has walked upon the asp and the basilisk and has trodden down the lion and the dragon (see Psalm 91:13).
