Just like a regular deck, there are 4 suits in Tarot decks. Commonly, they are called "pentacles", "wands", "cups", and "swords". The diamonds, hearts, clubs, and spades are the same as the suits in Tarot decks, in the order given here. But that is far from the only meanings, as we are about to see. Suits in Tarot also correspond to the four directions, and various emotional and physical states of being, among other things. Pentacles, or diamonds, stand for the earthly element, physical things. Health and home fall under this suit in Tarot. The compass direction of East is shown by this suit. In Tarot, pentacles stand for the season of Fall. It is feminine in nature, and influences the zodiac signs of Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus. When we interpret a reading, any of these synonyms may be intended by the cards. Wands indicate creativity and passion. It's elemental force is that of fire, and it alludes to the power of spiritual forces. South is shown by wands, and it's seasonal attribute is Spring, a time of spiritual growth and energetic action.
The history of Tarot cards goes back several hundred years. While the history of Tarot cards becomes difficult to follow earlier than the 1700's, they have been in documented use since the late 14th century. The earliest records regarding the history of Tarot cards shows that they were first introduced to European nobility somewhere in northern Italy. Later, the cards would take a turn towards the mystical, but the original history of tarot cards depicted them as decks used for gaming pleasure. Some have asserted that the history began much earlier, and that the decks traveled into Italy from Egypt. These discussions of the Tarot are the origin of the decks being referred to as the Royal Road. This is based on assertions that the word Tarot derives from two Egyptian words; "tar" which translates to "royal", and "ot" is an Egyptian word for "road". In time, the deck became popularly recognized as the royal road to wisdom, or spiritual understanding. Most modern accounts disagree with this, but it is still an interesting facet of the cards' history.
In understanding the meaning of tarot cards, it is important to recognize that the cards, particularly the Major Arcana, have different meanings depending on where the card appears, other cards in the reading, and even whether the card is upright, or upside down.

In most cases, a failed reading is due to misinterpreting the spread, and it is the responsibility of anyone attempting such a divination to know the art well. Understanding the meaning of tarot cards may seem daunting, but with a little practice, anyone can read a layout in only a short time.

Indeed, understanding the meaning of tarot cards as they relate to each realm of the spread is crucial, and any responsible reader will take care to ensure complete accuracy.
