Playing Cards vs Tarot

Guest Author - Karen Artino

As we know there are four suits in regular playing cards as there are four suites in tarot. There are Spades, Hearts, Clubs and Diamonds in playing cards as there are Wands, Swords, Cups and Pentacles (other variations for pentacles also). Instead of the seventy eight tarot decks, regular playing cards or only fifty two. Lets take a look at the suits up close to see the comparisons.

In the playing cards ; reds are feminine and the blacks are masculine.

Wands equal the Clubs and they mean: anything pertaining to work or social gatherings or interactions.

Swords equal the Spades and their meaning is: Logic and cutting away things that are harmful or negative to you.

Cups equal the Hearts and they mean: Love, anything that pertains to relationships and romance.

Pentacles equal to the Diamonds and their meaning is: Wealth and riches and anything pertaining to your health.

As the fool or the joker card in regular decks are the only real major arcana in the playing card deck, note that you are really reading all minor arcana readings so you will be getting more of a day-to-day reading instead of major or life changing events.

The Jack card is closer to the Knights in tarot so the Jack should be read as a Knight. The Queen of hearts is actually the Queen of cups so it should be read accordingly, you will have to know the meanings of the tarot cards to translate the playing cards to their right meanings for a reading of divination.

As with the tarot, using playing cards is a fun way to get the answers that you seek with a little more openness I guess if you are trying to hide the fact that you are using them for divination, eople will think you are just playing a particular card game.

Always remember that in reading playing cards you really can't read them individually, they must be read as whole reading to get the correct answer that you are looking for. Whether it is the answer you want or it the answer you need to know, divination with playing cards as the tarot will give you what you need to know at that time. Things in life can change and you can change your future at any time so the answers will be for present time.
