Sasha Graham’s Tarot Diva Blog – Sex and The City and The Four Suits of Tarot

Grab your popcorn, tickets and best girlfriends cause Sex and The City 2 hits theaters this spring!

I’d heard that over on Aeclectic Tarot they were doing spreads based on Sex and The City. It got me thinking of how beautifully the four lovely ladies of this popular show embody the four suits of Tarot.

The four Tarot suits are the structure that hold Tarot in place. Suits represent the four elements but how exactly do these elements apply to our lives? What does the element of Air and suit of Swords say about you? Let’s find out . . .

Fans of Sex and the City tend to associate themselves with one particular character of the show saying, “Oh, I’m such a Carrie,” or “I’m such a Charlotte.” By figuring out which character you identify with, you can also associate core personality traits to the elements of Tarot. You can understand a bit better how suits and their elements operate in your daily life.

Swords – Miranda and the element of Air. Miranda is a lawyer (recalling The Justice card and her Sword), she’s super smart and quick to judge. Does this sound like you? If so, you are a Miranda and embody the element of Swords. Sword represents issues dealing with mental activity, calculation, communication and thinking.

Wands – Samantha and the element of Fire. Samantha is one hot tamale. She’s completely in command of her sensuality, a powerful business woman (she owns a PR company and public relations is about spreading the word or a brand like fire) and is always wearing in hot sexy clothing. Does this sound like you? If so, you are a Samantha and embody the element of Wands. Wands represent issues dealing with passion, intention, work and sex.

Cups – Charlotte and the element of Water. Charlotte is easily the most emotional of the group. She gushes, wears her feelings openly, is easily offended and full of excitement and enthusiasm.  Does this sound like you? If so, you are a Charlotte and embody the element of Cups. Cups represent issues dealing with emotional fluidity, art (remember Charlotte’s first job was at an art gallery), feelings and openness.

Pentacles – Carrie Bradshaw and the element of Earth. The writer and fashionista. Carrie’s obsessed with her clothing, shoes in particular, is never seen in the same outfit twice and has struggled over the years with money issues. Does this sound like you? If so, you are a Carrie and embody the element of Pentacles. Pentacles represent issues representing things in the materiel world, things we can touch, feel, see and of course – money.

The above character traits are by no means exclusive and just like you, shades of different suits overlap all the time. Still, keeping the suits in the back of your mind while you catch a rerun of Sex and the City or watch the sequel this summer will bring you a deeper understanding of what Tarot suits mean in relation our lives.

Take a peek at the trailer – I can’t wait!

  1. What an awesome idea! I love how you’ve combined the four Queens with the four characters. And you’re right, my friends and I are always saying, “You’re such a Carrie” or “You’re such a Charlotte” (I get Charlotte a lot!!!).

    Thanks for keeping Tarot up-to-date!! 😉

  2. The four women of Sex and city represent the 4 major archetypes we ALL have.
    The Child,The victim,The prostitute,the sabatage. every human posess these archetypes and each of these characters is each.
    so charloette is the child,carrie is sabatour, miranda is victim,and Samantha prostitute.
    Remember prositiute archetype isnt always sexual it can be parts of ourselves we surrender for other financial,or whatever….
    now watch keeping in mind the archetypes and its crystal clear…!
