A couple of years ago one of my Aeclectic Tarot forum mates conducted an exercise to explore how the Minor Arcana, or “pip” cards, of the Thoth deck might be categorized as a range of emotional expressions: Joy, Anger, Love, Grief, Surprise, Fear, Trust and Anxiety. Because the Thoth pips have titles on them as well as highly evocative color schemes and moods, they are ideally suited for this purpose. A certain amount of “interpretive license” had to be applied, but the results seem reasonable. The attached table shows what I came up with. Surprisingly, although the Thoth deck has a reputation for being ornery, the majority of the cards have a positive slant.
