Here are some great Minor Arcana exercises, appropriate for tarotists of all experience levels. I tried these with a group of fourteen, breaking them in to small discussion groups. It worked well!

I think these exercises will work equally well for the individual, as journaling prompts.

I would love to hear your experiences with these exercises!

Take the Ace, Two and Three from each suit, and arrange the twelve cards in a grid.

Answer the following questions.

Aces:

What do the four Aces have in common?

In what ways are they different?

What is the energy of “Ace”?

How do the four elements (suits) influence the Ace energy?

Twos:

What do the four Twos have in common?

In what ways are they different?

What is the energy of “Two”?

How do the four elements (suits) influence the Two energy?

Threes:

What do the four Threes have in common?

In what ways are they different?

What is the energy of “Three”?

How do the four elements (suits) influence the Three energy?

Stories:

Now look at the cards in numeric sequence.

What story do you see in the Ace-Two-Three progression of each suit?

Do any of those stories reflect stories in your own life?

What happens if you tell the stories starting with Three and ending with Ace?

Readings:

Shuffle the four Aces, and choose one at random. Let this card answer the question: What am I beginning?

Shuffle the four Twos, and choose one a random. Let this card answer the question: What am I choosing, or contemplating?

Shuffle the four Threes, and choose one a random. Let this card answer the question: What am I creating?

What story of your life is told when you put these three cards together?
