It'd be nice if someone would write up descriptions of each card of the Minor Arcana as we've got for the Major Arcana, and what they "mean" if that's possible. Rob 13:12, 18 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Individual Minor Arcana cards[edit]

I´ve uploaded those cards to wikimedia commons and I´m creating the individual links to set a basis so we can improve that later. Ok? - Don León Cavalero — Preceding undated comment added 06:58, 24 July 2006

this article cover only one type of minor arcana[edit]

i personally saw at least six different types of tarot decks and in this article there are only the photos from a specific one without explanations. 1- there are minor arcana with, Latin , French and Even German suits. 2- the use of pentacles in place of Coins and wands in place of batons is restricted specifically to some Esoteric tarot decks mainly from the English speaking world. in traditional tarots the standard Latin suits are used. 2001:B07:6456:BB1D:343E:EC3A:E0AB:73C1 (talk) 18:11, 5 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You may be confusing divination tarot packs with card playing tarot packs. AFAIK packs with French suits are made solely for playing card games and there are no German-suited tarot packs at all; With a couple of exceptions, traditional Latin-suited tarot packs are also used purely for games. You are right that only one pack is illustrated, but it is a common one and probably all that's needed.
BTW card players never refer to the "minor arcana", but to "plain suits" or "side suits"; "minor arcana" is purely a fortune telling term invented by Pitois, alias Paul Christian. If I can locate its origin in the sources, I'll add it to the article. Bermicourt (talk) 18:42, 5 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
