The Minor Arcana are almost exactly like a deck of playing cards.   As with playing cards, there are four suits, that have cards going from the Ace to King. The only difference is that tarot have an extra Court or Face card.  Whereas playing cards have Jack, Queen & King, the Minor Arcana have Page, Knight, Queen & King. Each of the suits corresponds to the 4 elements of astrology: earth, fire, water & air.  Although each card has it's own specific meanings, each suit of the Minor Arcana has it's own energy.
