Astrology and numerology are commonly associated with parenthood, travel, career, and leisure. On the other hand, the tarot is not necessarily associated with all of those things, more often than not. Nevertheless, when they are given a chance to do so, they see how each card corresponds to different aspects or types of these things.
Is it possible to associate the Tarot with different types of food? Is that something you have contemplated? Can you even imagine that? In some cases, it is not just the food that is the problem, but also how it is eaten and what diet it is followed. We’ll find out right now. Here are some Tarot connections to food based on the Major Arcana!
The Fool represents new beginnings or going into something you don’t know about. The card can easily mean trying out a recipe that you have never tried before and not knowing what will happen. Any dish or dessert can benefit from this.
This card represents pizza, the most suitable food for the Magician. Pizza: why? Since it can be built, however, you wish. You order a pizza from the pizzeria. What would you like on it? You create the pizza and let them make it to have the pizza you essentially created.
The High Priestess
It is associated with foods that enhance intuition, so the High Priestess encourages you to tap into your intuition. Cacao, which is found in dark chocolate, goji berries, and beets, are foods that are known to open up your Third Eye chakra, which governs intuition.
Associated with this card is any comfort food made by mom. For example, you can make lasagna, pasta dishes, meatloaf, casseroles, or chili at home. The Empress card represents Mom’s cooking.
The card of order and leadership is very masculine, hence the Emperor. Red meat such as steaks and burgers are associated with this. This card would be appropriate for a double cheeseburger. Some men are vegans, so mock red meat would also be acceptable.
Taurus is the sign associated with this card, which represents conformity. This card illustrates foods that are grown from the earth, so they are appropriate for this card. In addition, Taurus is associated with vegetables and fruits. Therefore, the Hierophant card represents a garden salad or fruit salad.
You make choices based on the Lovers card, but no particular type of food is associated. Although it represents dining out, it is still a buffet. It is your responsibility to select the foods you are looking for to eat from the choices that are shown to you.
As a card that represents movement, the Chariot represents the food that is best suited to this card: coffee. But, it is a drink, not food, and everyone wants it to wake up and get going.
As this card represents inner and outer strength, the best foods this card governs are high in protein, such as meat, eggs, nuts, and protein shakes to build muscle. In addition, vitamin C-rich foods, such as citrus fruits and berries, are also important because they strengthen the immune system.
Introspection is ruled by the Hermit card, which does not necessarily lead to any particular food. However, it does rule eating healthy foods for a healthy lifestyle, such as low in sugar and organic. A change in diet will improve health after doing some soul searching and reflecting.
The Wheel Of Fortune
The Wheel of Fortune card symbolizes the change of direction. For example, this card represents a significant dietary change, such as becoming vegan or adopting a ketogenic lifestyle. This type of change is for improving one’s health or to change one’s beliefs.
When it comes to calories going in and calories going out, the Justice or cause and effect card represents diet. Are you craving something that may be loaded with calories? Having an awareness of your intake is fine, but it also motivates you to burn off your food intake.
The Hanged Man
Again, the Hanged Man is a card of sacrifice, which can represent making significant dietary changes for health reasons or as a result of a belief you hold. Additionally, if your daily caloric limit is restricted, you need to budget your calories and give up those that don’t fit. But, of course, you can always try it out tomorrow.
How would you compare the Death card to food? Well, it could represent some type of food that you tried, hated, and will never try again. It is as simple as that. Maybe you went to a new restaurant that you did not like and never wanted to try again.
There is a purpose to the Temperance card, which is to represent moderation. It is a card that emphasizes moderation when it comes to food. You can have both the pasta and the chocolate cake for dessert, of course! The Temperance card does not represent omission. It’s about fitting it all in but in moderation.
It is easy to see that this Devil card does not represent actual food; it simply means decadence. A chocolate cake with ten layers that make you drool is what this card represents. It’s a large piece of chocolate you’re dreaming of, and this is the card it shows. It can also mean banquets.
The Tower card represents unexpected upheavals. Particularly spicy foods would fall into this category. Ghost peppers are a good example. You can tell it’s spicy from its appearance, but until you taste it, you won’t know how spicy it is. If you do try it, use caution. It is the world’s spiciest pepper. Are you capable of handling that?
Here is the Star card, and this card is an excellent example of foods you can eat when you are sick to keep your strength up. This card could be used, for instance, with the BRAT diet (banana, rice, applesauce, and toast). In addition to chicken soup, ginger tea is an excellent remedy for promoting healing.
Whenever there is anything hidden or mysterious, the Moon is the card to represent it. Salads at restaurants come in different shapes and sizes. Salads are incredibly delicious, and it is easy to think about how nutritious they are because salads are so healthy. It may surprise you to learn that they often contain a lot of fat and calories, so this card is perfect for foods like this!
It’s a perfect day with the sun shining brightly. Think of food that is delicious for you at the same time! Sun-related fruits include berries, watermelon, kiwi, and anything else that is sweet and healthy. Also, consider dark chocolate. There is nothing more delicious and nutritious than this. Chocolate does make you feel better, after all!
Aligning with your Higher Self is represented by the Judgment card. Thus, the card represents conscious awakening. The foods representing the chakras are suitable for this card if you eat them to balance your chakras. Traditionally, the card means opening the root chakra by eating a red radish and going to the throat chakra by eating blue blueberries.
You have reached the card of completion, and you are ready to move forward. You should eat well for the day and go to bed with a full stomach to be prepared to start the next day. As far as food is concerned, that is what is associated with the World card.
Let us know if you think you can link any Major or Minor Arcana cards to either food or diet. Or, the next time you take something to eat, imagine the tarot card associated with that food. That is an easy way to help you understand the meanings of the cards in the Major Arcana anyway.
