The Spanish Tarot, have the following names for the 4 different suits! Wands are called ” Bastos”, Cups are called ” Copas”, Swords are ” Espados” and Pentacles are ” Oros”. Some decks that you buy are called ” Bilingual” decks and have both the English name for the card at the top and the spanish name at the bottom. Like English Tarot, the major and minor aracana, are the same, have the same meanings, however the pronunciation is in Spanish…
The Major Arcana names in Spanish :
El Loco, El Mago, El Mundo, La Emperatriz, Justicia, Templanza, El Diablo, La Torre, El Emperador, La Sacerdotisa, El Juicio, La Luna, El Sol, La Estrella, El Ermitano, La Rueda de la Fortuna, El Colgado, El Carro, Los Enamorados, El Sumo, Death ( doesn’t seem to have a spanish name).
The Minor Aracana comprises of the other 56 cards in a tarot deck and in esoteric, occult tarot and divinatory tarot, is believed to make up the mundane type features of every day life.
