What Tarot Cards Represent Scorpio


What Tarot Cards Represent Scorpio

If you are wondering which tarot cards represent different signs of the zodiac, you have come to the right place. The next sign in our series is Scorpio and we will review the nine tarot cards that represent Scorpio.

The Scorpio is the fixed water sign of the Zodiac, they are symbolized by the scorpion, and have a reputation for secrecy, and deep dark passion. People born under this sign have great darkness to them like no other, whether they see it or not.

Scorpios can keep their true emotional baggage all tucked away, because of that they are known for being extremely resourceful and always a great friend. 

Tarot cards that pull Scorpion energy can connect with them through the water element and cups energy within the tarot directly. The sharpness and fixation of this sign bring out a bit of wand energy as well as mystery and cunning characteristics that the Scorpio is known for.

Sly and curious, they can connect to some of the darkest energies through tarot and divination more than any other sign.

The tarot cards that relate to the zodiac sign Scorpio are:

  • Death
  • King of Cups
  • Queen of Cups
  • Knight of Wands
  • Seven of Cups
  • Six of Cups
  • Five of Cups
  • Page of Cups
  • Ace of Cups

The experience I have had directly with these cards and Scorpio energy comes from a very personal encounter regarding my daughter and her triple Scorpio self… 

My daughter and her flowy water sign have taught me to take a step back, hold tight to my emotions, even from the divine and connect with myself on a deep level before reacting.

The Scorpio energy can benefit everyone, and in my opinion, having experiences with Scorpio energy often happens when you’re least expecting it.

If you are a Scorpio, then having first-hand experience of this full-blown water sign can slow down your fiery, airy self, a lot. Your patience and friendliness is bliss, and you can teach others so much every single day, if they are open and observing.

Lately, I have taken a break from clients and have been reflecting on our family. Taking this time has allowed me to cherish and trust my connection with myself and the Tarot, the divine and more.

The other day I went about my normal morning routine, my goals for that day did not consist of anything too exhausting.

I wanted to spend time with my kid, and just genuinely enjoy the time we have together, as well as get some things done around the house and on my computer.

I pulled my daily card that morning, after mediation and communication with the divine, and I received the Six of Cups. The Six of Cups is a beautiful card for that moment in my life because it was a representation of the Scorpio I am focusing, and our lives together.

The card represented exactly what I was visualizing in my earlier mediation. I kept this card with me all day, to help keep my attention on the things that were important to me.

Let’s take a look at the tarot cards that represent Scorpio. First, the Tarot deck is divided into two sections, the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The Minor Arcana is further divided into four suits.

Note, at the bottom of this article, I have also included related articles about the other zodiac signs and how they are each related to tarot cards.

Major Arcana

Death 

The Death card is probably the top feared card in the deck, for reasonable speculation this card is scary. The Death card shows us the skeleton known as, the Messenger of Death dressed in black and riding a white horse. Together, they symbolize ending and beginnings.

In the background of this card we see a boat floating down a river, it is a representation of boats escorting souls to the afterlife. As the sunsets between two towers, in a way of showing us each night is death, to be reborn in the morning.

Change is always intimidating but necessary for growth. This card does not only represent an ending but a transition into something new. Scorpios are known for their transformational ways to adjust to their environment and see things from a different perspective.

This inevitable change will come to everyone at some point, much like the Messenger of Death, Scorpios are a great representation of,” no mercy.” Personal transformation and purging dark negativity from your life and create space for so much more beauty to grow.

Minor Arcana

King of Cups

The King of Cups sits on a throne among powerful waters, here we see the King sit comfortably with the fish around him. Holding a cup goblet and scepter, his emotional fluidness is balanced and fully controlled.

He represents the masculine form of scorpion energy where they sir up tall and solace.

Scorpion energy is present here in the control of unconscious realms of emotions. Making smart decisions, and achieving your goals is what the King wants.

This energy is refreshing and strong, sweeping you off your feet to realign you to your highest potential.

Queen of Cups

The Queen of Cups shows us the feminine side of Scorpion energy where the Queen’s intuitive nature and loving sense is what she is known for. The Queen sits on a throne holding a cup with handles like angel wings, unlike any other cup in the suit cards.

The Queen relates to her emotions but not overwhelmed by them. She is known as being sensitive and nurturing, she is also telling us to feel our way into new projects that will ignite our passions.

This cup has a lid, representing her feelings come from her subconscious and the depths of her souls are where her thoughts come from. She is a deep dark woman with secrets that would rock your world.

The Queen wants you to connect with the divine and try to meet the divine in everyone you meet. Trusting yourself is the key to this process of growth.

Knight of Wands

The Knight of Wands represents energy, forwardness, adventure, and motivation. This Knight is dressed in yellow and owns his fiery energy, this impulsiveness is divinely connected to Scorpio as well as the haste behind this card.

On occasion, this energy can bring forth frustration as many Scorpios get their bad rep, its usually from energy associated with this tarot card.

The Knight is a symbol of high energy and enthusiasm. 

Seven of Cups

The Seven of Cups show us various gifts making themselves seen out of seven cups in a clouded dream. A man stands nearby dreaming of his wildest dreams, though he must be careful what he asks for from the universe, not everything is as it seems.

The Seven of Cups present its illusions and all choices that are laid out before him. These values are personal to whoever receives it.

Aligning yourself and taking a step back will help overwhelming emotions you make have. This is conservative scorpion energy, inward thinking.

Six of Cups

The Six of Cups shows six goblets full of flowers and growth. Two children share the planet and the joy they have created.

This innocence is in relation to the scorpion energy we feel with this overwhelming feeling of reflecting on the past.

When this card makes itself present you have some looking back to do, get in touch with your own inner child. Remember happy times and reflect on them with a good present mind.

Five of Cups

The Five of Cups shows us a darker side to the Scorpio again, a man in a long black cloak is reflecting on failure or any disappointment. The despair is in the air with this card, the hurtfulness you can feel.

He has made some mistakes. Looking down on the spilled cups he is thinking of ways to overcome this darkness.

If something has not turned out exactly how you planned, it’s time to move on. Release this negativity and any darkness holding you down, forgiveness is key here.

Page of Cups

The Page of Cups shows us a man standing by the water, holding a fish in his cup he’s holding. He stands for creativeness and intuitive messages, two characteristics Scorpio cannot shy away from.

The Page represents the personification of water, and the element itself. Bringing all the water sign of the Zodiac, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces together.

Ace of Cups

With the Ace of Cups, we see a hand sprouting from a cloud, holding a goblet in its palm, and spouting water coming from the cup into the sea covered with beautiful flower blossoms.

The dove is flying into the cup, representing the subconscious mind to conscious awareness.

The Ace of Cups is newness approaching our lives and flowing into the next chapter of our lives. This scorpion energy is bringing forward persistent and fearlessly curious with this tarot card.

The Ace of Cups represents all power of water, bringing all water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces all together into one.

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.
