Which tarot cards indicate healing?
The Star – The beautiful Star card is a symbol of hope, inspiration, and healing. Wishes are fulfilled and the energy becomes balanced again. This is the #1 card I like to see when people ask about healing from any situation: illness, divorce, grief, emotional turbulence, surgery, etc. When the Star is present, healing is on the way!
Temperance – Like the Star, Temperance shows that balance is being restored. Things are coming back to a centered, calm place. You’re picking up the pieces and healing. The future is bright!
Three of Swords reversed – Right-side up, the Three of Swords shows heartbreak and loss. Reversed, the swords fall out and the healing begins. The clouds part – and the silver lining is revealed.
Two of Cups – The presence of the caduceus, the doctor’s symbol, in the Two of Cups suggests healing.
The World – This is the classic card for closure or a successful finish. Always a welcome card to see when you’re recovering from any situation.
The Hierophant – The Hierophant holds his hand in a benediction, a sign that you’re getting a blessing. This is a good card to see when you’re in recovery. Follow the doctor’s orders and you’re on your way to healing.
Four of Swords – When this card arrives in a question about healing, it’s a sign that rest will bring recuperation.
Six of Wands – The Six of Wands shows a victory, a sign that harmony will be restored. This is a fabulous card to see in a question about healing – it shows a promising direction ahead.
Note: These are my favorite tarot cards for healing but you may find others that suggest the same. For example, the Wheel of Fortune or Magician may be symbolic of a change for the better. The Ten of Swords reversed could indicate the end of a difficult trial. Look for cards that show positivity such as the Sun too.
Also, it goes without saying but I’m saying it anyhow: Tarot cards are NOT a substitute for a doctor, therapist, or other heal care professional. Do not use these cards as a guarantee for recovery nor should they be used to diagnose or prescribe. They can only show the energy present. Leave the medical stuff to the experts!
