Here is a follow-up to my One, Two, Three Minor Arcana Tarot Exercises. I will be teaching this topic this week, and expect it to help my group really understand the Minor Arcana, and the ways in which the number values and elements combine to provide the card interpretation.

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

I would love to hear your experiences with these exercises!

Take the Four, Five and Six from each suit, and arrange the twelve cards in a grid.

Answer the following questions.

Fours:

What do the four Fours have in common?

In what ways are they different?

What is the energy of “Four”?

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

Fives:

What do the four Fives have in common?

In what ways are they different?

What is the energy of “Five”?

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

Sixes:

What do the four Sixes have in common?

In what ways are they different?

What is the energy of “Six”?

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

Stories:

Now look at the cards in numeric sequence.

What story do you see in the Four-Five-Six progression of each suit?

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

What happens if you tell the stories starting with Six and ending with Four?

Readings:

Shuffle the four Fours, and choose one at random. Let this card answer the question: How do I find comfort and stability?
Look at the card you received, and ask yourself this question. Does this energy really support you, or are you there out of fear?
 

Shuffle the four Fives, and choose one a random. Let this card answer the question: What is the struggle or conflict in my life at this time?
Look at the card you received, and ask yourself this question. How does this struggle serve me, and where is it taking me?

Shuffle the four Sixes, and choose one a random. Let this card answer the question: What victory am I achieving?
Look at the card you received, and ask yourself these questions. How does fear play a role in your journey to accomplish your achievements? What comforts have you had to sacrifice?

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