Quick Trick for Reading any Tarot Card

To understand the cards at a glance, you can see the number of the card as a verb and the suit as the modifying adverb. When you put them together, you have the beginning of a sentence, which can convey a meaning. Thus, you only have to learn the meaning of each suit and of each number to be able to determine what a card means when you get it in a reading. This provides a baseline for the development of your personal lexicon.

Think of the number of the card as the main meaning of the card modified by the suit it is in.

Each suit brings a subtle energy to modify the energy of the number. The suits trace a four step path of manifestation, headed by a Major Arcana card that expresses a more universal principle or natural law. Thus the number Three, which is the number of the Divine Child, and is basically about childlikeness and creativity, translates as different variants of this base energy in the suits. The Three emerges into its archetypical expression as “imagination,” represented by The Empress, Key #3, in the Major Arcana.

The path of the number Three in The Tarot of Creativity:

3 of Fire/Wands
play/spontaneity

3 of Air/Swords
curiosity/discovery

3 of Water/Cups
express/joy

3 of Earth/Pentacles
explore/cultivate

3 The Empress (Major Arcana)
Imagination
