The Minor Arcana - Cups, Wands, Swords and Pentacles

The Minor Arcana - Cups, Wands, Swords and Pentacles

In a Tarot card deck, the Minor Arcana makes up 56 cards that are in four categories. The four categories are Swords, Pentacles, Wands and Cups. Each of these categories stands for a different area of life. The minor Arcana in the Tarot deck represent what is happening in your day-to-day life. This is compared to the Major Arcana which represent major life changes. The number of each card showing up and where they are in the spread gives the psychic reader an overview of what is happening in your life - mainly if there are big changes coming or more day to day growth.

Each suit in the Minor Arcana represents a different area of day-to-day life issues. Swords represents thoughts, words and actions. Pentacles represents business, finance, work and material items. Wands represents energy, motivation and passion. Cups represents intuition, feelings, emotions and creativity.

In each of the suits of the Tarot deck, there are court cards - King, Queen, Knight and Page. When the court cards show up in a reading, they may represent characters in one’s life and/or the environment around the person being read.
