Tarot Meaning Cheat Sheets: Infographics Plus Free Printable Resource

By Tina Gong


One of the major requests for content we’ve gotten is to develop tarot cheat sheets for you all to quickly reference when doing readings. And so, I’ve gone ahead and made one for you! Remember, these are just tarot keyword references - meaning that they don’t include the full meaning of the card, but are helpful in helping you refresh yourself when going through readings. Often a keyword is enough to jog your memory.

Differences Between Rider Waite Smith and Marseille Tarot Decks

A quick reminder here too that these cheat sheets work with the Rider Waite Smith system, which we based the Golden Thread Tarot deck and Luminous Spirit Tarot deck on. While the general overall meaning remains rooted in those foundations, you'll notice that artist made decks can have slight variations and interpretations. If you're looking for the Tarot de Marseille cheat sheets, we'll have them ready soon too.

Download the Printable Tarot Meaning Cheat Sheets (Major and Minor Arcana)

There are two versions to these tarot cheat sheets - a digital one in full color that you can reference here, as well as a printable version that hopefully saves some ink on your printer and correctly sizes for pages.

If you’re looking for full tarot card meanings, I urge you to go check out our tarot cards meanings list, as well as download a few of our apps to help guide you through readings, and pull up meanings automatically for drawn cards.

So without further ado, here are those resources!

    Is there a better download link for the b&w printables? I enter my email and I have not received anything
  • LeAnn
    I like this, but I have the Arcana Iris Sacra deck. The meanings are very different on some of the cards. I would love if this site had the information under the learn tab as well.
  • Drusilla

    @L – Yeah, they’re different lists – but if you’re already signed up, it should just let you do it again. @Eden – Just sign up! We’ll automatically email you. @Taylor – It’s included with the deck. :)
