The Minor Arcana & Their Correspondences
I recently released a post about correspondences of the Major Arcana, and I had so much fun creating it that I had to release a Minor Arcana correspondence post too! Tarot is not an easy thing to learn, so I find that being able to link different tools and practices to it can not only develop your understanding of the cards, but it can also enhance your skills.
I tend to understand things a little better when I have a bigger picture and a connection to it. And that’s exactly what tarot correspondences give you! These attributes give you a better sense of each card and how it fits into our lives and the Universe as a whole. Everything has its place.
The four suits of the Minor Arcana are so different and, because of this, they have a variety of correspondences, which we will look into below.
Just remember, everyone will have their own attributes for different things, because everyone is unique. My tarot correspondences may be different to yours, but that’s okay. My tarot correspondences are down to my intuition. Your intuition may tell you otherwise. Here we’ll be looking at correspondences for each card of the Minor Arcana.
