These cards are symbolized through everyday conflict and any current situations. Commonly known as less of an impact on your long-term journey, focusing on these cards during the short term is best.

Four Categories of the Minor Arcana

The four categories are divided up into wands, swords, cups, and pentacles. All representative of astrological elements, Leo is most associated with Wand energy because of the divinatory meaning behind these cards are more representative of fiery nature.
