List of All Tarot Cards in Order

March 26, 2022

If you’re wondering about all the Tarot card names, whether suits come first, and which cards are in the Major and Minor Arcana, we’ve got you covered.

Here, we’ll go over the 22-card Major Arcana as well as the 56-card Minor Arcana. If you’re learning how to read Tarot cards, one of the fastest ways to learn is to get a professional Tarot reading!

Major Arcana

We count the Major Arcana first because it represents the big-picture view of the Tarot deck. It discusses larger-than-life moments and life-altering events—thus, it sets up the “journey ahead” for the reader.

Minor Arcana

The Minor Arcana represents the smaller in-the-moment parts of life. It is composed of four suits: Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles. As mentioned above, each of these suits represent an element and, therefore, one of the four zodiac signs.

The order of the suits depends on the reader you’re talking to. In this case, we’ll use the suits as reference zodiac wheel. The order of the elements goes like this: fire, earth, air, and water. So, the suits follow in respect to the element it represents: Wands (fire), Pentacles (earth), Swords (air), and Cups (water). 

Suit of Wands

The suit of Wands represents the element of fire and all fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius.

Suit of Pentacles

The Pentacles suit in the Tarot represents the element of earth and all earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn.

Suit of Swords

The Swords suit in the Tarot represents the element of air and all air signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius.

Suit of Cups

The Cups suit in the Tarot represents the element of water and all water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.
