MAJOR & MINOR ARCANA QUICK REFERENCE SHEET 

 
A standard tarot deck has 78 cards, divided into 2 groups; 22 major arcana cards and 56 minor arcana 
cards. In the tarot, the m​ ajor arcana​ denote important life events, lessons or milestones, while the 
minor arcana​ cards reflect day-to-day events.  
 
The m​ inor arcana c ​ ards are arranged into 4 suits - swords, pentacles, wands, and cups. Each suit 
has a ruling element and correspond to a specific area of life: Swords represent air and have to do 
with intellect and decisions. Pentacles represent earth, money and achievement. Wands represent 
fire and action. Cups represent water and emotions.  
 
Court Cards​ represent a person - either yourself or someone else. They r​ eflect personality traits and 
characteristics, and can give insight into motives.
