What tarot cards represent aries

If you have started working with Tarot and the signs of the zodiac, you might be wondering which cards are associated with Aries. I have found that I can get a deeper meaning and glean more from the Tarot Cards when I combine different disciplines like Astrology and Tarot.

The first sign of the zodiac, Aries is always one hundred percent committed to their work. This Aries energy resonates the most with the following 10 Tarot cards associated with Aries:

  • Emperor
  • The Tower
  • King of Wands
  • Queen of Wands
  • Knight of Wands
  • Four of Wands
  • Three of Wands
  • Two of Wands
  • Ace of Wands
  • Page of Wands

Aries energy is the cardinal fire sign of the zodiac, bringing assertiveness and independence to another level within the signs. This energetic, refreshing energy provides a boost of confidence, unlike any other.

Aries energy and people usually stand out, especially the cards during a tarot reading. The Aries related cards are mostly positive and are swayed toward one element the most, fire and the wands.

The Tarot deck is split into to sections, the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. Let’s review the cards in the Major Arcana first, then we can move onto the Minor Arcana.

At the bottom of this article, I have also include related articles that review the tarot cards associated with other zodiac signs.

Major Arcana

The Emperor

The Emperor is known as the Father figure of the tarot deck, he represents the planet Mars and Aries mostly through showing you how to be as straightforward and aggressive, much like the natural abilities of an Aries to take the lead in all aspects of life.

The Emperor and Aries energy are mostly intertwined by the throne of the Emperor, and his overall manner. He sits tall and forward, honoring all that he represents with great integrity.

The Emperor’s throne is decorated in the Aries zodiac’s symbol, the ram. The Emperor himself characteristically represents what a ram stands for, an authoritative structure, and known for showing up as a headstrong leader.

He demands respect, and much like Aries energy, they are great at being loyal, and occasionally impulsive. Their attention span helps them keep up with their work, social life, and family.

The energy of this card is associated with Aries energy because everything they have; they have because they’re succeeding.

The Tower

The Tower card shows us a tall structure built on shaky ground, it is a scene of pure mayhem and no matter the set up for this card, know transformation is on its way.

Whether it is an internal shakedown of your own institution or something you experience in the physical realm. Change is coming your way and best approach it with the fierce Aries energy following it.

This is showing the abrupt energy of Aries, how reckless and unprepared they come off as.

The Tower represents sudden change, chaos, and overall awakening. Aries energy like no other brings positivity to one of the most feared cards in the tarot deck, it is the Aries energy that is here to tell us ‘we got this.’ To face this card with a great fire in our chests ready for whatever comes our way.

This strongly influential card that promotes not only an alter in one’s life but the ability to handle whatever life brings you.

Aries and the Tower are the perfect representation of unwise decisions and carelessness, all things we encounter.

The Minor Arcana is made up of 4 suits, Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles. Aries would be most associated with the energy of Wands. Let’s take a look in more detail which Tarot cards represent Aries.

Minor Arcana

King of Wands

The King of Wands has strength embedded in his throne, with lions, and salamanders representing his toughness, and the power he holds. This King stands for his own way, being honorable, and going all or nothing.

His confidence is deeply divinatory related to Aries’s fire energy. He represents strong fire energy, through his wand and ability to take control and move onward.

The King of Wands represents masculine energy in its purest form as large and in charge, and very persistent in their motives.

With this full-force fire energy card, it embraces the action behind Aries and all that they do purposefully.

Here we are open to Aries energy and its more dominate side, where action speaks louder than words.

Queen of Wands

The Queen of Wands is a perfect representation of a powerful confident female role, surrounded by lion decor and her little black cat at her feet.

She is in tune with her dark shadow self and connects greatly with satisfaction from the fruits of her labor. Her powerful words are not held back, she represents fertility and genuine happiness fueled by her Aries’s spirit.

The Queen has determination like no other, her boldness is not mistaken for her ability to be social and understanding how to make a positive change in the world.

An Aries must always come from a place of never needing a plus one, but rather someone who accompanies them when need be. This is how deeply

The Queen of Wands and Aries connect, the Queen too feels this and represents strong feminine energy.

Knight of Wands

The Knight of Wands shows up blazing in complete armor, and yellow cape decorated with salamanders. His enthusiastic energy symbolizes his drive for life and adventure.

His energy is quickly associated with Aries’s energy because of his desire for action right away. Rapid and aimless movements he comes across as not knowing his own direction when in reality he has more energy than he can keep up with.

The Knight’s urge to travel and his rage is uncontrollable in this high impulsive card. The Aries energy here must keep adapting and embracing ways of doing.

The Knight must continue his journey forward and focus on his passion. Aries have the energy to go with the flow even when it comes out fiery and out of a loose cannon.

Four of Wands

The Four of Wands shows us two merry individuals standing under four wands decorated in beautiful garner. Aries energy is hugely engaged with the idea of family, blood or not here we are able to envision celebration and true matrimony with our loved ones around.

The Four of Wands represents true harmony and joy. Relaxation is present here and is fluid through Aries’s energy, though can be difficult, their efforts will make huge advantages in their life.

Aries energy thrives off of frequent slowdown periods of enjoyment with their closest friends.

Three of Wands

The Three of Wands shows us a man dressed in royal clothes, he has fled his comfortable castle to venture out onto what the world has to offer.

Confidently, these ‘dreams come true,’ energy is like a breath of fresh air for Aries, something they look forward to. Starting new and broadening their horizons. Aries energy is fluid at being on the go.

The Three of Wands represents growth at its purest form, progress, and moving forward. This optimistic progression is a promise for a future that is coming to you just as you are longing for it.

This is deeply associated with Aries’s energy because of their never-ending want for expansion and growth. 

Two of Wands

The Two of Wands shows us a man debating as if he has some serious decisions to make. Holding a globe in his hands he dreams of lands far from where he resides.

This important future planning is crucial to Aries and their thought process before acting because they often act before they think.

Aries energy here is often to jump the gun and run with their first idea. Where this card shows us how Aries is completely capable of being rational before deciding when they want to.

Taking the time to do this with this particular card is doing yourself a favor.

Page of Wands

The Page of Wands shows us a young man holding in both hands, a long wand, with the end sprouting green leaves. He is dressed in yellow salamander decor representing his fire and variation.

Here he can envision all of his abilities, aimlessly his mind roams with all possibilities. Life is full and all is good here. 

The Page of Wand’s characteristics is most familiar with a fire sign, who comes across as young at heart, very cheerful, and full of happy energy.

This strength is related to the element fire and fun Aries energy it has attributes to connect us with that outgoing and playful sense.

This complements the sign so well, bringing out some of the best qualities of this also authoritative ram sign.

The Ace of Wands

Much like the Page, the Ace of Wands represents inspiration, newness, and potential of growth. The Ace is a hand spouting from a cloud holding a wand upward. This energizing card is a portrayal of Aries and all that they stand for. 

The Ace of Wands representing all the fire signs in astrology, bringing Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries energy altogether here. More so the Ace of Wands suggests lots of creativity and excitement coming into one’s life.

Aries energy is naturally extroverted, feeling very connected to society, this makes those warm Aries tendencies shine.

Have you ever wanted the sound of the ocean splashing in the background as you work at your desk, or cook dinner in the kitchen?

The White Noise Maker is something I use every day. It has 6 sound options including Thunder, the sound of the Ocean, a summer night, rain and white noise.

I love the sound of rain playing in the background, or the sound of the ocean waves crashing on the sand. Sometimes I use it when I go to bed, or even in my office with my Asakuki Diffuser giving off the gentle scent of lavender in the air.

It`s also nice having the Himalayan salt Lamp on in the background with my Crystal Tree of Life next to it. I have them in my office and they create a “zen” feel for me while I’m working.
