I thought we might have a look today at Tarot cards associated with medical issues. NOTE: Just because these cards turn up in a reading does NOT mean you have a medical condition. As I keep on saying, there are 50 shades of Tarot, 50 possible meanings (or thereabouts), for each card. Please take the following with a large grain of salt. Some I’m sure of. Others are educated guesses.
Nine Of Wands: Possibly wounded. Especially in battle.
Ten Of Wands: Back problems. Mania.
Page Of Wands: Burns
Four Of Cups: Chronic fatigue.
Five Of Cups: Depressed
Six Of Cups: Delusional. Hallucinations.
Eight Of Cups: Sleep walking.
King Of Cups: Alcoholic
Three Of Swords: Heart attack.
Four Of Swords: Minor mental breakdown.
Seven Of Swords: Kleptomania.
Eight Of Swords: Phobia. Paranoid.
Nine Of Swords: Anxiety. Panic attacks. Possibly migraines.
Ten Of Swords: Depression. Chronic back pain. Possibly stabbing wounds.
Four Of Pentacles: Constipation
Five Of Pentacles: Leprosy. Skin disorders.
Eight Of Pentacles: O.C.D.
King Of Pentacles: Arthritis.
Temperance: Eating disorders. Possibly hormonal imbalance or any other condition caused by imbalance.
The Devil: Drug addiction. Sexual disorders.
The Tower: Accidental injury. Emergency surgery. Major mental breakdown.
The Moon: Mental illness.
Death: Um, pretty obvious isn’t it. But please please please remember this is only one of many possible meanings for this card.
The Star: Hospitalisation. Recovery. Healing.
This list isn’t exhaustive or definitive. The cards that come up will vary slightly from reader to reader. Because everyone reads the cards in their own unique way. But it’s a starting point. Note: The cards might turn up reversed to indicate these conditions.
