In the art of tarot reading, we can use the Major Arcana cards to explore a fated event and the Minor Arcana for our day-to-day life. However, using both types of cards gives us a clearer picture of our lives. As Reed says, why separate your daily life from your spiritual life? We live in a world that is full of both.
The Minor Arcana Tarot Suits
The tarot deck consists of 78 cards; the Major Arcana comprises 22 cards, while the Minor Arcana contains 56 cards. These suits represent lesser archetypes and specific events and patterns. The Fool is the representative of the Fool, and each of these cards represents an encounter that he or she might have with a person from the suit of his or her opposite gender. Each suit is accompanied by an etymology, which reveals the underlying meaning.
The Minor Arcana contains four different suits, each representing a different aspect of human life. For instance, the Fool's Journey is an initiatory path that uses the Minor Arcana cards to manifest his or her desires. The Minor Arcana tarot cards are based on ancient Greek science, which posited four classical elements for explaining the world. The ancients believed everything was made of a combination of these four elements, and therefore a lot of their theories are still valid today.
The Minor Arcana consists of 56 cards, which represent smaller themes in our lives. The Minor Arcana cards are arranged in four suits of fourteen each, and they are structured similarly to a deck of playing cards.

Suit of Cups
The Minor Arcana tarot cards' Suit of Cups denotes the feminine aspect of life and focuses on spiritual and emotional issues. This suit often represents emotions, love, and a higher level of consciousness. The Cups are often associated with creativity, and the use of the cup suit may help you deal with problems in a romantic or love relationship. In the following article, I'll discuss the Suit of Cups and its associated correspondences in detail.
The Cups card signifies long-term relationships, peacemaking, and happiness. It can also represent a new home or start. The imagery in this suit often depicts a family of happy people, with a rainbow of cups overhead. This card can be very encouraging in times of need, and can help you get back on track if you're struggling with your relationships. This suit will give you the direction you need to deal with your problems.
The Knight of Cups is a sign of romantic love, and is associated with creativity. A person with this card will be romantic, but will need to work through their emotions to realize their desires. Alternatively, they'll be dispassionate or cynical, or even jealous or moody. A reading of mostly Cups in the Minor Arcana Tarot cards may be a sign of a relationship problem.
Suit of Wands
When you look at the tarot card nine of wands, you may notice that the man holding the wand is fighting a rival. This would-be lover has become jealous and this can lead to conflict and discord. You may feel frustrated or have a lack of energy. Your work and life may be interrupted by the man's efforts. The appearance of this card in a reading may mean that it is time to take action.
The Wands suit is rich in symbolism. The Ace of Wands represents a burst of fresh energy. This card embodies the energy of a flame that is pure and brilliant. The Three of Wands demonstrates a need to gain perspective and find a role for yourself. The Four of Wands indicates that you are a planner and that you need a steady source of fuel to accomplish your goals.
The Ace of Wands represents new opportunities and creativity. It often represents a creative project or a new beginning. The image depicted on the card shows a budding flower and this may represent the energy of many new beginnings. When interpreting this suit, you'll want to be cautious. A positive outcome could come from a new venture, but the negative aspects include impulsiveness and self-indulgence.
Suit of Swords
The Swords suit of the Tarot cards represents the mental level of consciousness. The Sword reflects the quality of our mind, including our thoughts, beliefs, and actions. Swords often have double edges, symbolising the balance between power and reason. The Suit of Swords also represents our daily life challenges. The Suit of Swords is often the most challenging.
The Suit of Swords is often double-edged, representing the dynamic balance between the mind and heart. The Suit of Swords is counterbalanced by the Suit of Wands and the Suit of Cups. This contrast creates a tension within our mind. The Suit of Swords often shows conflicting thoughts and requires the use of our logical minds.
The Suit of Swords is rooted in reason. The Air element is related to intellect, reasoning, and communication. People with this suit tend to be rational, and their decisions are based on reason. The Suit of Swords also reveals the problems we may face and the ways we can overcome them. The Suit of Swords represents the struggle between our will and our emotions.
Suit of Pentacles
The Ten of Pentacles represents abundant life and success across generations. It captures the archetype of society, namely, the successful generation will support the succeeding one. If this is a Tarot card you're drawn to, you're ready to share abundance with others. The Ten of Pentacles is a particularly resonant card for those who wish to build a solid foundation and share that prosperity with others.
The Suit of Pentacles can also represent your own personal values and principles. You'll need to set priorities and make sure that your efforts are geared toward your ideals. You'll also need to treat your body with respect and avoid engaging in unhealthy activities. This suit can be quite threatening if you let it control your life. To protect your future and the people around you, it's a good idea to make your priorities clear.
The suit of pentacles in the Minor Arcana reflects your feelings towards the material aspects of life. You may be questioning your career choice, or you may be concerned about your impression of material success. The suit of pentacles is a good time to assess your life. Take the time to evaluate your choices and surround yourself with ambitious and generous people. It will lead you further in life.

The Minor Arcana also has numbered cards. These cards have a numerological meaning, with each suit carrying a different message. The 10 of Cups, for example, represents a happy ending.

What Does it Mean When a Tarot Reading is Mostly Minor Arcana Tarot Cards?
The Six in reverse can indicate a recent relationship that is in trouble. This can be a soul mate or a close friend. It can also reflect a relationship that you want to strengthen or enlarge. You might be feeling torn between two loves and want to leave your old baggage at home. If you're feeling this way, you might consider getting a reading from a Tarot reader who specializes in tarot cards.
If you're single and a Tarot reading shows an upright Hanged Man, then you should not rush the relationship or attempt to force it. Instead, you should try to see how the situation will change if you take some time apart. In a relationship, timing may be an issue, whether you're taking things to the next level or talking to a significant other. If you're in a relationship, however, you may want to wait until you've had some time alone to get your perspective in order.
