My favorite Tarot card! From The Druidcraft Tarot Deck.

If you don’t automatically know what your favorite Tarot card is, take a moment to go through your Tarot deck and choose the card you feel most drawn to. Do it now, before you read the rest of this article!

Okay, now that you have your favorite Tarot card in front of you, I want to reveal the four “keys” that will unlock the secrets (about you!) hidden in this card. Does that sound ultra-dramatic or what?!

Key #1: Color
What color is most prominent in your favorite Tarot card? This tells you what is most important to you right now.

  • Red / Orange – this color signifies passion and drive and is strongly associated with the areas of career, power, creativity, action and movement. Chances are career is important to you, as is living your passion and making your mark on the world. You are goal oriented, prefer to be busy and love an adventure! You are a go-getter at heart.

  • Blue / Green – relaxation and going within are what you enjoy the most. You are introverted, sensitive and always seem to want more down-time in your life. You nurture your creativity and inspiration by journeying inward and recharge your batteries by spending time alone. Meditation, writing, reading, crystals and being by the ocean are all things that you love.

 

  • Purple – You are strongly focused on spirituality at the moment. You are in the process of getting in touch with your own divinity and connecting to spirit. You share many of the blue/green traits, but you are very interested in things like astrology, the cosmos, reading channeled books, ascension, hypnosis and activating your psychic abilities. Others may think you are weird – but you could care less!

 

  • Yellow – You are working on issues related to abundance, self-esteem and courage. Establishing strong boundaries will help you through this phase in your life, as well as developing a practice of self-love and appreciation. You may have a strong, secret urge to perform in a play or get your writing published – basically, you want to be the star of the show!

 

  • Multi-colored – If your favorite Tarot card has a mix of all different colors, this shows that you are well rounded, open minded and here for a good time! You love travel, meeting new people and learning new things – this is what makes life spicy and fun for you. You are a social butterfly, but also enjoy solitary activities like reading. You have an interest in both spirituality and business.

Β Key #2: Gender
If there is a figure on the Tarot card, is it male, female or androgynous?

This symbolizes the energy that you are most closely aligned with at the moment. If the figure is a male, you are probably quite focused on doing, whereas if the figure is female, you are likely more focused on being.

Key #3: Action
Is there any action going on in your favorite Tarot card? Whats happening in it?

If your favorite Tarot card depicts someone on a horse, this can indicate that you are ready to really up your game and go for your dreams.

If your card shows people interacting (like The Lovers, Six of Cups or Three of Cups) this can mean that relationships and communication are front in center in your life right now.

Key #4: Symbols
Is there a particular symbol in the card that stands out to you?

Look into the spiritual significance of this symbol or ask yourself what you think this symbol means. Chances are it represents something you are desiring or something that is important to you.

For example, the first thing I notice in my favorite Tarot card, The Star, is the water being poured out of both cups. To me this represents the flow of life and establishing a sense of trust in the Universe. This is something I constantly remind myself of to help stay relaxed and optimistic in times of doubt and struggle.

  2. Deborah says:

    Great way to see your life in a small reflection. I know I’m a beginner (at least in my book since I don’t have the actual cards yet) but I always had good intuition. And one day, while looking around online for a bunch of tarot decks for beginners I saw the Gilded tarot deck and the art just jumped at me. I may not have it but my favorite out of that deck is The High Priestess for some reason. It just sings to me and is the reason I clicked to check out the Gilded tarot. I also suspect it’s because of my fascination and love for spiritual leaders. Much like Priestesses with spirits, it’s always been a wish to be a girl with ‘magic powers’ as a kid.

    So time to share the experience!
    1)Color- Blues are there on the card since it’s night. I am an introvert and have worked out that I’m an empath due to being a problem dump for my friends. So that must be the sensitivity. I want the down time since school’s been rushing like a tidal wave.

    2) Gender- The High Priestess is a woman, and I’ve been fine with just being. I like to revel in the fact I’m alive and here surrounded by birds and trees, bees and flowers, the night sky and sunsets. It’s amazing.

    3)Action- She’s alone and she’s floating above water. Dancing with grace and elegance. To me that symbolizes being free and independent. I do want to be free, from worry, fear, society, school and I see that as her secretly being free at night. Which I am too.

    4)Symbols- The space in the background speeks up. It represents my acceptance and love for numerous and open oppurtunities. With endless possibilities and probabilities. I love exploring old and new concepts of anything. I also have a thing for being in the background unless absolutely necessary. I always hang in the back when someone else is in the limelight and I’m fine with that.

    So, yeah that’s what I got from a card that draws me in even from a computer screen.

    • Deborah, thank you so much for sharing this here πŸ™‚ I love the High Priestess too and I really enjoyed reading your interpretations of her – it reminded me why I love this cards so much! I too am an introvert/empath, so maybe that’s why I am often drawn to this card as well.
      Cheers,
      Kate

  3. Chris says:

    Hey Kate, I’m a new follower and totally loving both your fun/creative approach to Tarot and your helpful wisdom.
    Although I had a bit of a hard time picking a favourite Tarot card, I guess it does depend on the deck.. I started out with Liz Dean’s Golden Tarot, and the very olive-green Hermit in that deck really stood out – reminding me of a cover illustration of The Lord of the Rings, with Gandalf walking past a tree in the deep evening light… Cool stuff.
    In the colourful Universal Rider Waite deck, I think it might be The Tower, which in fact is even more impressive graphically in the Morgan Greer deck – my favorite Tarot to date (although I don’t own a copy – yet…)

    According to your assessment points, I agree that the blue/greens of both The Hermit (Golden) and the Tower (Rider Waite) reflect my introspective side and love of personal down time, which seems to get more focused and prioritized as I get older…
    Thanks for the cool exercise!

  4. Teresa Ward says:

    Hi Kate!

    My favorite is the Empress! I get very excited everytime I pull her in a spread!

  5. Teresa Ward says:

    My favorite is the Empress. In the crystal vision tarot deck. I like several pentacles cards too. I love the Earth and love walking barefoot and connecting to the Earth. I love the queen of swords to

  6. Ashley says:

    My favorite card is the Hierophant. What does that mean?

  7. Kate says:

    The Chariot in the Witches Tarot deck is my favorite card right now; the Lovers is the close second favorite (probably because I’ve seen it a lot recently in single card readings). The horses show the impatience of wanting to get somewhere as they are reared up, and there is uncertainty in the night sky perhaps just because that’s something you associate with darkness. I think it’s the colors of blues and whites that draw me to the Chariot, it gives me the sense that the movement and uncertainty I am going through is going to lead to something positive. Having the Lovers card as my next favorite I think enforces the positive end of the changes I am facing right now; it’s assuring to see that everything will work out with the lovers and knowing they are looked over by an angel (though I don’t believe in them myself) is encouraging. I also half hope the Lovers card is in relation to someone I just met and am very drawn to; the card started showing up for me right before I met him a week or two ago.

  8. Jess says:

    hi! ive just got into this, and I want ot learn it. my favourite card is the hanging man from an oldish deck I was given. I don’t know why I like it, I just do.

  9. Sophhie says:

    The queen of cups is my personal favorite! My spirit always now gravitate towards her in a silent yet, powerful way versus the High priestess. (It was my favorite, now I have somewhat of a difficulty of connecting to her.) The Queen of Cups is loving, compassionate, kind, yet wise in her decisions and actions. She may follow her heart but, reflects the situations before jumping into the situation; I have never been into ‘blues’ or ‘greens’ as a favorite color in my life (Where pink was my favorite color.) now, I just find majesty and mystery in them! Followed by purple backing my spirituality that I am trying to regain again; I’m also introverted as well and do well in slower-pace environments where I can think and reflect! I feel she is going to guide me down the right path if I stay true!

  10. Jill says:

    My favorite is The World from Shadowscapes Tarot! It’s just such a deep green, with a little purple as well. Both color meanings resonated with me as well. For the action, I saw her gently holding a crystal ball, and I took that as maybe I am focused on finding answers (mainly about myself and looking deeper into myself) The moon and stars jumped out as symbols to me, I also see them as discovery as well as wonder and awe, since I always feel like that when I look up into the sky.

  11. Patricia says:

    The nine of pentacles in any deck – I want to be her!

  12. jessica says:

    my favorite card in my deck (inspired by the original waite deck) is by far the queen of cups – she is gorgeous, serene, powerful. the card is full of blues and purples – its so pretty. oddly enough there is a crab on this card which represents my sun sign. i just love her.

  13. Sue says:

    Hi Kate,
    My Tarot deck is the Cosmic deck. My favourite card is the High Priestess, as she actually communicates with me, by changing her expression. When I am being naughty, she gives me a stern look. Sometimes she becomes exasperated with me when I am trying to interpret the meanings in a spread, other times I could almost see her smile if I am being silly or am very happy.

    • Kate says:

      That’s so neat, Sue. I have that deck too and I love the High Priestess. Thanks for sharing this πŸ™‚

      • Sue says:

        One thing I’ve found with this deck, is that they only seem to want to talk with me and nobody else. If anybody else touches them, they seem to “cry” out to me – by giving me a very strong “tingling” vibration sensation whenever they are upset, but the High Priestess is definitely the “spokes card” for the deck πŸ˜€

  14. catherine says:

    what is the pope card? I was on a different site and THE POPE came up as one of the 7 I drew.

  15. Emily says:

    I have several tarot decks my favorite is the Druid craft. My favorite tarot card is the queen of cups.

  16. Zetta says:

    First of all, I’m glad I stumbled upon this article, because it made me look at the tarot in a new way, so thanks for that.

    My favorite card has always been Death. I’ve been attracted to the theme of rebirth for my entire life. In my New Palladini Deck, red is really the main color, and what you said about that makes sense because I AM very motivated and passionate about change and growth, if nothing more specific.

    Death is also androgynous in this deck, and I think it appeals so much to me because of my issues with identifying with masculine/feminine energies. For the longest time I really struggled with the concept of masculinity/femininity because I felt like I had to choose one or the other. I’ve only just begun to find a balance, and I can’t tell you how relieved I am!

    There’s also a beautiful white flower on Death’s flag, and I think that’s probably symbolic of my quest for purity. Not in a virginal sense, but in a purity of self/spirit kind of way.

    Thanks again for making me see things in a new light! You’re awesome!

    • Kate says:

      Hi Zetta,
      I am so glad you found my site and thank you so much for sharing your favorite card πŸ™‚
      I have the New Palladini Deck and I love the Death card too!
      Happy Tarot reading!
      Kate

  17. Kimberly says:

    My classically favorite card has always been the ace of coins because it’s the one card that seems to be either a new love relationship that has potential for the long term or it means that I’m getting a new job. Lately though I seem to be drawn towards the nine of pentacles. Perhaps its because I’m really feeling lovely at my age of 35. I have read though that this card is not good for those looking for love because its a card of independance.

    • Kate says:

      I love both those cards too, Kimberly πŸ™‚ I don’t think the 9 of pentacles is a bad card for those looking for love, it just means that you aren’t looking for love because your desperate and lonely, but looking for someone to share your loveliness with!

  18. chelli says:

    My two favorite tarots from the radiant rider deck are the moon and the high priestess.

  19. Ashley says:

    My favorite tarot card has been and always will be the empress. I love the image of her in the rider waite deck and your excersize makes total sense because my main focus in my life right now is to be a mom and hopefully get pregnant soon. Thank you for this excersize!

  20. Leanne says:

    I know this is about favourite Tarot Card but I did this with my Oracle Cards, Healing with the Fairies by Doreen Virtue, all I can say it that the colour really matched to what I like and the picture of the unicorn really made sense to me. All I can say is I can’t wait to discover my favourite Tarot Card when they come!

    • Kate says:

      Leanne, this exercise totally works for oracle cards as well – I’m so glad you liked it πŸ™‚ I have that deck too and its great!

  21. manji says:

    My favourite at the moment is the Wheel of Fortune. Surprised no one mentioned it!

  22. Ignacia says:

    Hi Kate! My favourite card is The Death…Means a lot to me, it represents metamorphosis, a change that’s necessary. I love it and it scares me at the same time, that’s why it’s so interesting to me.

  23. Michelle Huber says:

    My favorite is “Strength” I saw the lion and automatically related to it. I play Magic The Gathering so I have decks with lions & angels, but I love this card. My cards I found in a friend’s abandoned apt & they are the Guilded Tarot set by Ciro Marchetti πŸ™‚

    • Michelle Huber says:

      I also discovered that there maybe some things that are holding me back and that I want to, which also describes my current situation

    • Kate says:

      Michelle, Strength is such a beautiful card! The Strength in the Angel Tarot is particularly lovely – an angel with a Tiger. The Guilded Tarot was one of my first decks πŸ™‚

  24. Marcie says:

    Just stumbled on your page, and love it! My favorite is the Queen of Pentacles from the Morgan Greer Tarot. The yellow color represents prosperity, self-confidence and self-esteem. The Queen is very regal and comfortable with herself. I want to BE her, comfortable and confident, no worries, she has all she needs. What stands out to me is the profile and the look on her face, as well as the oak leaves that surround her. She has the wealth and the means, and she realizes that the Universe and the Earth gave that to her, she leans gently on the pentacle, but it is not the most important thing in her life, being grounded and acknowledging where her wealth comes from and providing for others is the important.

    • Kate says:

      Hi Marcie,
      I love your interpretation of the Queen of Pentacles πŸ™‚
      It totally sums up what she is all about.
      Thanks for your comment!

      Cheers,
      Kate

  25. Gypsy Faerie says:

    Well I didn’t know I had a favorite card so I just flipped through each card and put the ones that tugged at me to one side and then when I got through I did this again with the smaller pile and so on until I got down to one card. The final card was the Chariot. In my deck (the Mystic Dreamer Tarot) The dominant color in the card is blue and I had to laugh when I read that description because you couldn’t be more accurate if you knew me… There is a female figure driving the chariot and the symbol that kept drawing my attention was a dark colored bird (I think raven when I see it) is flying low to the ground slightly to the side of the chariot in the foreground – I’m definitely more about being than doing – even though she’s not on a horse the chariot is drawn by a horse so when I read, “If your favorite Tarot card depicts someone on a horse, this can indicate that you are ready to really up your game and go for your dreams,” again I had to laugh because I’ve been seriously considering going pro and took the first steps to doing that tonight… The raven to me signifies letting go… of insecurities, worry, negativity (all the things I associate with the color black); and really living

    • Kate says:

      Thanks for sharing this! πŸ™‚ Ravens are fascinating animals (and symbols). So happy my article gave you some new insights. Best of luck going pro and releasing all the crap that holds you back – it sounds like your totally ready!
      Cheers,
      Kate

  26. Amy says:

    As I went through my Rider-Waite deck four cards really jumped out at me. Two of them are positive cards: Strength and 10 of Cups which represent attributes I want to possess. The other two cards are negative – Two of Swords and Four of Cups. These two cards sum up my greatest weaknesses – indecision and procrastination/boredom. I found this VERY insightful because now I see what I am building towards and what issues I need to work on. Loved the post!

  27. Janine says:

    Using my trimmed crystal visions tarot. I got – High Priestess, the Moon and the Queen of Cups. (I usually like the Queen of Swords.) But the Moon card comes on top of this deck!

    • Kate says:

      Love those cards, Janine! The Moon is quite often one of my favorites in many decks, but it is lovely in the Crystal Visions Tarot.

  28. kaia says:

    And if You relate this with astrology …. just a thought πŸ˜€

    Fav no 1 The Star
    Fav no 2 The Hermit

    Libra with Virgo rising
    Or maybe Aqarius with Moon in Virgo
    and Venus in Libra

  29. Jane Carrier says:

    I thought my favorite card was the Queen of Cups, but as I went through the deck the Strength card jumped out at me. I guess It is time for me to pursue my passion rather than contemplate on it anymore!

  30. Ricky Hale says:

    Hi Kate!
    My favorite cards in the Rider-Waite deck (in order-favorite first) are:
    The Moon, Temperance, Ace of Cups, The Star, and The High Priestess.
    I feel drawn to The Moon card for it’s mystery, psychic and intuitive properties (moon-drops coming down tend to symbolize this to me), and sense of connection with the Universe in both the card, and particularly when I see it for real in the sky. Yellow seems to really stand out as a re-occuring color in all 5 of those cards πŸ˜‰ And all but one card has water in it, though I noticed in The High Priestess card the crescent moon at her feet is sitting on her blue flowing robe, which looks a lot like water to me. I agree with you when you commented on one of your videos that water stands for the emotions. I tend to let my emotions rule my heart instead of my head lol. Thanks for a lovely website to help educate others. Peace. πŸ™‚

    • kate says:

      Thanks for sharing this, Ricky! I LOVE all of those cards too (except Temperance, which seems uptight and no fun!)
      Thank you for your compliment and for taking the time to explore and comment on my site πŸ™‚
      Hugs,
      Kate

  31. Hi Kate

    Mine is also the Star.
    I feel very balanced and peaceful looking at this card and the fact that the stars are there to either wish on, or guide us, make the potential and possibilities unlimited. There is always some light to use.
    I am finding that I am using the tarot in different ways now, including snippets in my yoga classes.

    I really like your thoughtful, intuitive approach to the cards.
    Denise

    The high priestess
    My card suggests that I and another individual are on equal terms, somewhat. But other symbols suggest that I surpass.

  33. Lady says:

    In Cosmic Tarot it is the Magician, The Lovers and the Hermit
    In Tarot of the Sidhe: The Star and Warrior Princess
    In Osho Zen its Existence
    The Prominent colors in these cards are blue/purple/ red/orange and this is what I am working on right now! Thanks for this interesting article!!
    Namaste, Lady L

  34. Mary says:

    that was an insightful exercise!! My favourite tarot cards are the Sun and all the Queens; colours: yellows and blues. In angel deck cards it’s pictures where there’s someone painting, caring for animals, or reading. Symbols: butterflies. I’ve gone through all my decks at home, mostly angel/goddess/fairies and the result is just as amazing! There is some basic truth that is so easily overlooked…. thanks for the exercise xx

  35. Gracie says:

    My favorite is the 4 of Wands in the Rider-Waite deck. It reminds me of a big summer party and everyone is having a great time. I love the bright yellow and the flowers – it gives me such a happy feeling.

  36. Thank you very much Kate for this nice explanation!!!
    For quite some time my favorite card is the Osho Zen Tarot card ‘NEW VISION’ (in other decks this is the Hanged Man). For me it represents the power within, the strength in myself. The figure, who first crawled on the ground, has moved upwards and is now a strong person who ‘surrenders’ to anything that will come (body position is backwards), he/she is capable to handling anything. The figure has wings, so he/she is free to fly wherever he/she wants. The geometric figures, the square/triangle/circle, are part of the new raised figure. I do not know what that really represents for me. The left hand is clearly visible (the emotional side), I can not exactly identify the right hand. That hand seems to be connected with something behind her/him (maybe the past?). And all the different colours tell me that the figure is open minded and loves all the colours of the world. The card represents me, I think.

  37. Thanks Kate, this was very brightening for my dull night of studying. πŸ™‚ My favorite Tarot card is The World, with no doubt. It occasionally comes up in almost every Tarot deck I’ve picked for a one card reading. My favorite World card is the one in Crystal Visions Tarot, it is gorgeous. πŸ™‚ It looks like a multi-colored card in general, and it fits me, I love exploration, meeting new people and colors, but in a balanced way of course. I think we can say that blue-greens and purples are stronger though, and this fits a lot more, because I’m usually introverted with my small close friend group, I LOVE spiritual and psychic everything, meditation, divination, crystals, astrology, etc.! The person in the card is female, which resonates best with me, and she is sitting in a lotus pose, meditating. This is exactly what I desire the most, to have a regular basis of meditation and yoga practice. Also butterflies rise from her hands, which is also my reminder of constant transformation and growth. And she is calm, she has a lot of down time, which is what I also desire too. I never thought of my favorite card this way, I’m fascinated!
    Warm regards and blessings!

    • I forgot to say, The Star is my second favorite, which actually fits very perfectly too! πŸ™‚

    • kate says:

      Deniz – I LOVE The World card in the Crystal Visions Tarot – I don’t always like this card in other decks, but in that deck, I love it. It sounds like your card really does describe your personality/interests quite closely!
      Cheers,
      Kate
