The Four Suits of the Tarot of the Witches


The four suits in this Tarot are Batons, Swords, Cups and Coins.

Interestingly Fergus Hall has illustrated their elements in a rudimentary way and perhaps we could discuss that further.

Batons

Element: Fire

Represented as Clubs in an ordinary deck of playing cards.

Fergus Hall has provided a central image on each pip depicting a fist "clubbing" a stick to break.

Keywords: inspiration, creativity, energy, action.
An action in progress or the results of the output of energy.

Swords

Element: Air

Represented as Spades in an ordinary deck of playing cards.

Here Hall provides a central figure on each pip of a foot with wings flying over a landscape.

Keywords: thought, rationality, intellectual powers, decisions.
Often these pips depict a conflict or struggle because much of the turmoil in our lives can be attributed to our thoughts.

Cups

Element: Water

Represented by Hearts in an ordinary deck of playing cards.

Hall aptly provides a central figure of a heart with an arrow through it.

Keywords: emotion, feelings, relationships.

Coins

Element: Earth

Represented by Diamonds in an ordinary deck of playing cards.

Interestingly Hall has provided a central figure of an eye above a landscape of a valley with a river running through and a flame ascended over the eye.

Keywords: practicality, work, money, material comfort, business.
