The four elements of life are Earth, Air, Fire and Water. They each have metaphysical properties as well as physical properties.
The four elements correlate with the four suits of the Minor Arcana of the tarot. They also correlate with individual cards of the Major Arcana.
The term “Major Arcana” means “Greater Secrets.” The twenty-two cards of the Major Arcana contain the most spiritual messages and lessons of the tarot, and tell the story of our journey through life.
When we learn the elemental associations for each of the Major Arcana cards, we have a clear way to understand these important cards.
