Magical talismans interlace with a wreath while a cauldron bubbles and sets the woven ring on fire. A crystal tipped wand sits opposite a golden sword, both are draped with a ribbon that wraps around and binds the wreath. Nestled atop the ring is a golden pentacle and below, a powerful potion simmers in the cauldron. The wand, sword, pentacle, and cauldron represent the four suits of Tarot Cards. The wreath and ribbon bind all four elements together. Emblazoned on the ribbon are the alchemical symbols for the four elements; water, air, earth, and fire. Each of these elements correspond to the tarot suits; cups, swords, pentacles, and wands respectively.

The cauldron represents the suit of cups and corresponds to the element of water. Cups are associated with emotions, intuition, and matters of the heart. Some believe the cup symbolizes the human soul and that which truly fills it is love and emotions. The swords tarot suit corresponds to the invisible element of air. Matters of self-image, perception, and observation are among a few of the intangible characteristics of Sword cards. Pentacles, on the other hand, represent all that is tangible and correspond to the element of Earth. All manners of money, home, and bounty are revealed by the Pentacle cards. It is a suit that shows worldly subjects that are manifested in the physical world. Lastly, the suit of wands corresponds to the element of fire and embodies creation, creativity, and spirit. They are very much a symbol of action and the spark that starts it all. For this reason wands are often depicted as budding branches in the numbered cards which grow all the way to the the mature branch held by King of wands at the end of the suit’s procession.

When a magical practitioner harnesses the energy of all four tarot suits in complete balance and harmony they are truly enlightened. The wreath, being a symbol of continuation, wholeness, and reincarnation, represents this enlightenment as it is set alight by the cauldron fire.
