I love exploring the power and wisdom of the tarot’s court cards!
To begin understanding their complexity and potential guidance, let’s break down each element and its corresponding suit…
Fire (Wands): Energy, Ambition, Passion
Air (Swords): Thought, Mental Activity
Water (Cups): Emotion, Feelings
Earth (Pentacles, Disks, Coins): The Material World (including career, or any other physical surroundings)
It helps one to recall that “We can’t know anything outside our mind. Everything we see is contained within our mind. Thus, I am not in the world. The world is in me.” (— Haemin Sunim [@haeminsunim] March 8, 2017)
Thus, 3 out of the 4 elements are found originating within ourselves, and the material world is the recipient of whatever way we act out in response to these inner elements.
