Tarot and Wellness
The Spring Equinox -- March 21 -- marks the official start of spring, and is a great time to get in shape. As the weather grows warmer (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere), we may feel more active and interested in getting our bodies prepared for the hotter months ahead. If you want to maximize your success with your health, diet and wellness routines, try using the tarot to figure out which fitness programs are the best for you.

In the tarot, each personality type can be best described by the four “suites”, which correspond to a particular element of nature: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. So how do you go about finding your tarot type to make it work for you?

Select a card from the deck that resonates with you, and then read the information below to see which of the four basic personality types fits you the best. Most people usually have a blend of at least two of these elemental natures, but sometimes you’ll recognize yourself as being strongly one more than the other.

Swords/Air
Your type: Swords people are focused on the realm of the mind and are brainy, love to talk, can be competitive and may get bored easily. They can be less in touch with their bodies than the other types because they prefer to spend time writing, reading, on the computer, or engaging in dialogues with others. Sword types need exercise that stimulates their mind as well as the body and food that is quick, healthy and easy to prepare.
Exercise: Fencing, tennis, rock climbing, hang gliding
Foods: Healthy, bite-sized foods like baby carrots, hummus, popcorn, nuts and other high protein foods that don’t take a lot of prior preparation time.

Wands/Fire

Your type: Wands people love to have a good time. They are creative, fun, active, thrill seeking, passionate and entertaining. They may push too hard in exercise, so it’s important for them to pace themselves so they don’t burn out. This fiery type thrives on doing activities with other people, and needs food that is calming to their nervous system.
Exercise: Dancing, hooping, circus school (trampolines, juggling, etc.)
Foods: Coconut, salads, fresh fruits, grilled vegetables, fish.

Cups (or Chalices)/Water
Your type: Dreamy, creative imaginative and emotional, Cups need a form of exercise that supports their spiritual as well as their physical selves. This type does best in non-competitive and gentle sports that allow them to enjoy the beauty of the natural world. Because they can tend to eat emotionally, Cups need to have a wide variety of foods pre-prepared to fulfill cravings in healthy and nurturing ways.
Exercise: Sailing, canoeing, yoga, swimming
Foods: Soups, oatmeal and other hearty breakfast cereals, seafood.

Pentacle/Earth
Your type: The Pentacle type is grounded, practical and focused. This earthy personality needs exercise that they can commit to, so routines and continuity are important to build a sense of stability. More risk-adverse than risk-taking, Pentacles like to see physical results from their efforts. Foods that support stability and strength are important to add to their diet.
Exercise: Hiking, gardening, weight lifting
Foods: Root vegetables, nuts, apples and grains.
