The 7 luckiest tarot cards to receive in a reading

What are the luckiest tarot cards in the deck? This article picks the cards you should look for in a tarot card reading as the best omens of good fortune.

Tarot cards can be a great way to not only glimpse the future, but also focus on it and, through the power of positive thinking, attract good things into your life. Each tarot reading begins with a question from which the seeker can actively ask for guidance or even help in bringing good luck. It cannot be definitively said that a particular card is always lucky or indeed that another card is a sign of bad luck because the meaning of each card depends on the context and its relation to other cards in the reading. However, there are some cards in the tarot deck that have such strong energy and are so auspicious that they are invariably a sign of some good fortune or other coming to the questioner. The following is a list of cards that you really want to appear in a tarot card reading:

The sun

This is really a great card to receive. It speaks of harmony and happiness, healthy relationships and a sense of unity. The Sun has always been a metaphor for truth. When we say we can “see the light” we mean we can see the truth in a situation. When we talk about becoming “enlightened” we mean reaching a level of understanding. As the supreme source of light, the Sun is therefore a powerful symbol of knowledge and understanding. Ignorance may be bliss, but knowledge is power. Only when we truly understand a situation do we have the power to transform it and achieve what we want. The Sun is also associated with greatness and success, so when this card appears it is a positive reminder that we too can be ‘bright’ and truly ‘shine’.

Ace of Coins

The Ace of Coins represents a gateway to a new way of being more prosperous. It speaks of stability and constancy and of achieving visible results. It’s not a card of fanciful dreams and pie-in-the-sky ideas, but a great card to come up with when you’re in a situation where you need more solidity, stability, and concrete changes in your life.

wheel of fortune

The Wheel of Fortune is one of the few cards in the traditional tarot deck that does not include a human figure. This is appropriate because it is about those things that are beyond human control. Depending on one’s beliefs, this could be seen as the Power of God, the Law of Karma, or simply fate. This card serves as a reminder that while many of us would like to believe that we are in complete control of our lives, there are forces acting upon us that are beyond our influence and understanding. When this card appears it can be a powerful sign that things are starting to turn in our favor. The concept of the wheel is revealing because it suggests that there are cycles and patterns underlying these forces that influence us.

six of wands

The Six of Wands represents victory and success. It is the letter of the athlete who trains, sacrifices, sweats and finally wins. We all need big and small triumphs in our lives and the Six of Wands appears when those successes are just around the corner. This card can also represent feeling good about ourselves and our accomplishments.

The Cart

Imagine a chariot heading into battle and driven by a team of pack horses. It must have been a fantastic sight. This is the image the card conjures up: a powerful one-man fighting unit ready to fight and take on the world. The Chariot represents that spirit and determination to succeed in all the battles we face in life. There are times when it is right to go with the flow and there are times when compromise is the best approach; but when this card appears it is a reminder that fortune favors the brave and as long as you act with confidence you will be lucky to succeed. However, it is important to remember that many of our conflicts are internal, so this card should not be taken as a license to go out and fight the world.

Three drinks

The Three of Cups is the card of boundless joy, love and celebration. In cultures that espouse the philosophy that we live to work, it can be difficult to take seriously our deep need as human beings to bond with each other and celebrate our togetherness. After all, what’s the point? What does it achieve? But the celebration is an end in itself. We could also ask ourselves (but we rarely do) ‘What’s the point of living just to work? Where’s the joy in that? but also ‘What greater joy and security than to know that one is loved and able to love?’

The world

The world simply represents fullness and fullness. To have the world at one’s fingertips means to have everything one could desire and therefore to be self-sufficient and content. In reality, however, fulfillment is not so much what we have but how we feel. A monk or hermit can be satisfied with only his begging bowl and a cave to sleep in, while a rich man can find little peace, no matter how much of the world he possesses. The card represents the promise of inner fullness and wholeness. These feelings can come to us all from time to time and the card reminds us to make the most of them when they do.
