Angelic Tarot Card Meanings Index

angelic tarot card meanings index with keywords as well as astrological and angelic correspondences

This new, updated Angelic Tarot Card Meanings Index with Keywords and Correspondences for each card is a work in progress. As I go through the in-depth Angelic Tarot Card Meanings, I indicate that they are updated by putting the word [Keywords] in bold text. To get to more in-depth Angelic Tarot Card Meanings, simply click on the title of each card.

In the Angelic Tarot Card Meanings Index below, you will also keywords for each of the cards. I do not recommend learning tarot only by memorising keywords. However, keywords can sometimes help trigger deeper insights and provide clarity when we feel the cards are not making much sense.

Keywords also add to our internal database of Tarot knowledge. I like to think of each keyword as a memory hook that you can use to sort situations and things you encounter in everyday life.

Intuition and Correspondences

A better way to learn card meanings is to use your own intuition in combination with learning astrological and angelic correspondences. Learning Tarot correspondences is a lifelong pursuit and extremely valuable once we start using the Tarot for pathworking and psychospiritual development.

The aim of any serious student of the Tarot should be to embody each of the full spectra of meanings for each of the 78 Keys in full awareness. This is how you can truly make the Tarot work for you. Please be patient as this level of mastery usually takes many years to achieve.

Why I don’t Include Reversed Card Meanings

You will notice that I have not included reversed Tarot card meanings here. This is because I believe that the upright card contains the full spectrum of meanings and that turning cards upside down can block natural visual clues. A better way of reading the cards is to learn to sense the flow of energy between you, your question and the vibration of each arcanum, as well as how the energy flows between the cards.

Major Arcana Angelic Tarot Card Meanings

Major Arcana Angelic Tarot Card Meanings

The Major Arcana details the Fool’s Journey through life. This journey leads The Fool to encounter each of the archetypes that reside in the Universal Subconscious Mind. They represent the big life lessons we must each navigate. However, it’s not a linear journey and especially when it comes to our Shadow Card, for instance, we may need to revisit the lesson. The same is often true for any of the Karmic Cards.
