Tarot Card

Definition of Tarot Card

Tarot cards are used to foresee future events and answer specific questions, and are often used in fortune telling and astrology. A tarot deck is usually made up of 78 cards, each with a unique image and meaning.

The most common 78-card Tarot decks are divided into two main groups — Major Arcana and Minor Arcana — with the latter divided into four suits (Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles).

Major Arcana Tarot Cards

Tarot cards drawn from the Major Arcana group are said to symbolize and predict major events or major turning points in a person’s life, such as a marriage or career change.

Minor Arcana Tarot Cards

Tarot cards drawn from the Minor Arcana group are said to represent or predict experiences in daily life, such as an issue with a friend or lover, or a message that may be on its way to you.

Gibbous

When someone says the moon is gibbous, it means that more than 50% of the moon is illuminated in the sky. This happens when the moon is moving towards a full moon and after the full moon when we are approaching a new moon.
