Tarot Structure - Major Arcana

This is one of the most favorable cards in the entire deck. The Empress is the archetypal Morther-Earth, a symbol of fertility, fruition and creation. She is sitting on her throne in the middle of a richly sown field, with a full-flowing river in the background. She's wearing a beautifully embroidered dress and a crown with twelve stars (symbolizing the twelve constellations of the zodiac). She's holding a golden scepter and her heart-shaped shield, with the symbol of femininity carved on it, rests by her feet.

Wands are associated with the element of Fire and are related to creative endeavours, expansion, aspirations and taking action. They very often indicate success or problems in the professional field. 

When the Wands are the predominant suit in a spread, they indicate that the issue at heart is related to our passion to conquer and excel. They also advise to adopt a more dynamic or assertive behaviour, so as to get what we're after.

The Minor Arcana of the Tarot is organized in four suits: Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles. Each suit has numbered cards from 1 to 10 plus four court cards: the Page, the Knight, the Queen and the King. 

There are many variations to this, for example Aleister Crowley replaced the Page with "Princess" and named the Kings "Knights" so you need to study the deck you use.

2 - The High Priestess Print E-mail
Tarot Structure - Major Arcana

The High Priestess (or Papess) is one of the most mystical cards in the deck. The High Priestess is sitting between a black and a white pillar, each bearing a letter: B for "Boaz" ("negation") and J for Jachin ("start"), as they were inscribed at Solomon's Temple. She is bearing the crown of Isis, the moon is resting at her feet and she's holding a papyrus with the inscription "Tora". This word may be an anagram of the word Tarot or a reference to the Hebrew Pentateuch (Torah). Behind the High Priestess a veil embroidered with pomegranates, the fruit of oblivion, prohibits all access to her kingdom. This is a beautiful, highly symbolical card.
