The 78 tarot cards are divided into 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana. The Minor cards are then subdivided into the suits of Swords, Wands, Cups, and Pentacles. For each list, you will find simplified meanings drawn from both the “official” Rider-Waite-Smith deck as well as my own interpretations. As you work with your tarot cards, you should find yourself deviating from these meanings and developing your own.
