Tarot is an intuitive art that can help you prepare for the best and the worst. It’s also deeply connected to astrology. For example: Each zodiac sign is represented by a card in the Major Arcana. Along with getting a cute tattoo of *your* card or shopping for tarot-inspired earrings, you can meditate on its meaning to level up in your life, avoid potential drama, attract your dream partner, and step into your superpowers. Channel the energy of your tarot card below.
Aries: The Emperor
The Emperor represents authority, power, and leadership. Just look at the guy! He sits on his giant stone throne adorned with four rams’ heads, symbolizing his connection with Aries and the planet Mars. In his right hand, he holds an ankh, the Egyptian symbol for life, and in his left is an orb, representing the world over which he rules. You can embrace his influence by being the Aries boss b*tch we all know and love. You’re a natural-born leader, so step up and take charge. When it comes to sex and love, you like to be *on top*, so find yourself a boo who appreciates your strength and stamina. Step into your power, Aries bb, and channel the Emperor’s energy.
Taurus: The Hierophant
Wait, what’s a hierophant? It’s a Greek word for “high priest” (~the more you know~), and this card is sometimes also called the Pope. The Hierophant is kinda like the guru of the tarot. With intense holier-than-thou vibes, the Hierophant symbolizes organization, institution, and spiritual guidance. In his left hand, he holds a triple scepter, representing domination over matter and emotion and thought. The Hierophant is the fifth card of the Major Arcana, a number that represents creativity and joy in the material world. It’s also a special number for Venus, your ruling planet. Taurus governs the physical world, sensuality, pleasure, and material things—nobody knows how to indulge like you do, bb. Use the power of this card to understand that you can accomplish great things with dedication and hard work. You’re a master creator, and with time (and you do take your sweet, sweet time), you will make your mark on the world. You vibe the best with someone spiritual who appreciates your hard work.
Gemini: The Lovers
Your card is a fun one, Gemini. Everyone gets excited when they see the Lovers pop up in a reading. This card represents matters of the heart, but it’s also about having options—you can see this in the imagery, with Adam and Eve symbolizing the power of duality. While Adam is looking forward, showing the physical, Eve is gazing upward, showing the intuitive. When these two energies combine, they create one whole, just like the twins that represent you in the zodiac. They’re standing in front of the Tree of Knowledge and the Tree of Life, telling you that there are always two sides to every situation. Use the power of this card to stay present and find ~balance~.
Cancer: The Chariot
You’re the warrior of the tarot, Cancer bb! The Chariot is your card, making you feel strong, driven, and courageous when you channel its energy. This card is all about pushing past barriers and riding your way to victory like the blazing force you are. Since you’re a water sign, you need change to evolve, but it can be hard for you. The Chariot is here to encourage you when you really just want to stay in your shell. I know it’s warm and comfy in there, but use this card to guide you toward your biggest dreams. Be bold in your relationships and let your person know how you feel. Remember, love always wins!
With that bold, beautiful roar you have, Leo, it should come as no surprise that your card is Strength. Strength is all about overcoming difficulties in our lives through deep courage, vitality, and fortitude. Looking at the card, we see a woman petting a lion on its forehead under a golden sky. You can embrace the energy of this card by taming your impulses and predatory instincts and embracing compassion. The number associated with this card is 8, which also represents the infinity symbol, speaking to endless possibilities and self-mastery. Remember the strength of the lion when you encounter any relationship hiccups. Find an S.O. that lets you take the lead and trusts in your power. But remember, kitty cat, your success will come from compassion most of all.
Virgo: The Hermit
Your card represents one of the most important parts of your journey, Virgo. The Hermit is a potent force of spiritual insight. You can make changes in your life to align with your higher purpose, hopes, and dreams. Manifest the energy of the Hermit and take time for introspection. The Hermit is also a calling to share your knowledge with others, so spread that sweet wisdom, Virgo! In relationships, you need to be given space and respect to find your inner calling. Look for a partner who can get down with your values and is ready for intelligent conversations and debates.
Balance is your superpower, Libra, so it’s no surprise that your tarot card is Justice. You have a mission, and the world needs you. Balance keeps you afloat, as does your integrity. Be aware of what’s true, fair, and ethical, and always choose that route. In love, you need honesty, respect, loyalty, and, most important, patience from your partner. Always rely on your scales and know that karma has your back!
As one of the most powerful and provocative signs in the zodiac, your card is Death, representing transformation and rebirth. Not only are you the sex queen of the zodiac, but as the ruler of Death, you’ve also got some seriously witchy vibes. Meditate on this card to become the best version of yourself and transform into whoever you want to be. Your card is associated with the number 13, which is a magical number of purification. You’re a fluid, watery creature, and in relationships, you need to be given the space to evolve and change. At any point, you can rise from the ashes and run the world, Scorpio.
You’re a wild child at heart, Sagittarius, so naturally, your tarot card is Temperance. Like this card, you’re a philosophical truth-seeker constantly striving to be more enlightened. Temperance shows up when we need to check ourselves. The angel in the card demonstrates this by slowly pouring the liquid from one golden cup into another, a culinary process called tempering. No one knows how to party like you do, Sag—you can use the energy of this card to reel it back in when necessary. It also indicates how important patience is to you, especially in relationships. You need a lover who can keep up with you and appreciates your wanderlust.
Capricorn: The Devil
You’re a tenacious mountain goat, Capricorn, and the Devil is the card that represents you. Have no fear, Cap—this card is fierce and savage, just like you. Capricorn’s connection with the Devil is rooted in the mythology of the Greek god Pan, the half-man, half-goat nature god. The Devil symbolizes what happens when we give full reign to our raw desires. Anyone who’s been with a Capricorn knows they’ve got skills in the bedroom. To connect with this card, live out your deepest fantasies with bae. We all need a little bit of the Devil in our lives.
Aquarius: The Star
As a sign that is forever reaching for the stars, it comes as no surprise that your tarot card is, well, the Star. This card represents peace, tranquility, and innovative ideas. You’re ~one of a kind~, and you’re here on Earth to share your gifts. This card asks you to have hope for the future. Just like the woman in the image, keep one foot on the ground, representing practicality, and your other foot in the water, representing intuition. For you, creative work and self-evolution is what you live for. Look for a lover who will encourage your humanitarian calling.
Pisces: The Moon
As the dreamiest sign of the zodiac, your card is the Moon, Pisces. This card is associated with intuition and creativity. The water in the image is your subconscious mind. A cute lil crayfish crawls out of the pool, showing the early stages of consciousness unfolding, and a dog and a wolf are howling at the Moon, representing both the tame and the wild parts of your mind. Your power lies in your ability to recognize your complex feelings. Let your dreams guide you, trust your intuition, and know that things aren’t always as they appear. In love, you need to feel emotionally supported. Your boo should be able to connect with the depths of your soul through time and space. Be careful not to let people take advantage of your gentle heart, and remember, the Moon is always there to light your way.
