When it comes to the luckiest Tarot cards, any good fortune teller will explain that no card is necessarily good or bad, depending on how closely you chose to listen to its lessons. That said, there are a few Tarot cards that definitely tend to be a welcome sight in almost any reading. Some such cards bring news of impending good fortune while others affirm that you are on the right track when it comes to love or money. Some readers even carry some Tarot cards for good luck if there's something in particular that they are trying to manifest in their lives.  

Here we'll take a look at a few such lucky tarot cards and what messages they may be trying to tell you if they appear in various positions in a reading. Keep in mind while the tarot can be an excellent hint of what's to come if you stay on a given path, there is no such thing as a future written in stone. While a card may be able to assure you that you're on the right path to your goals, it's up to you to stay on that path until your dreams become a reality.

    Ace of Pentacles

    The Ace of Pentacles features a large hand reaching out of the clouds and over a lush, bountiful garden, offering a pentacle to the seeker. Through the garden, a path is presented which leads to higher ground. As a rule, the suit of Pentacles stands for material abundance, wealth, money, and opportunity. 

    Let's just say that if you're lucky enough to draw this card, you should definitely keep your eyes open for opportunities that may appear on the horizon. While a great opportunity has or soon will present itself, it's up to you to strike while the iron is hot and cash in on it. 

    If the Ace of Pentacles appears in the past position, it may indicate a financial opportunity that it's time to take seriously and go for. In the present or future positions, it means that the time is right to advance in your life and career and cash in on the opportunities that present themselves. While there may be challenges ahead (symbolized by the mountains), your path will ultimately take you to new heights.

      Ace of Cups

      The Ace of Cups features a hand holding a large overflowing cup appearing from the clouds. As the cup overflows into a vast pond, a dove descends towards it, bringing with it Divine blessings. 

      As with the other Aces, the Ace of Cups is an invitation and a great one! The five streams that pour over the sides of the chalice represent an overflowing of emotion, intuition, and love as well as the five senses. The cup itself represents you as a vassal, currently overflowing with love, light, and blessings that you have the ability to give out to those around you. By opening yourself up to the blessings of the universe, you, in turn, become a blessing to others. 

      The Ace of Cups in the past position may encourage you to reflect on the many blessings you've been given and allow your gratitude to make you a beacon of light which draws others in. In the present or future positions, this card can be a promise of blessings to come. Whether it be new relationships, creativity, or love, allow yourself to stay open to the possibilities and prepare to watch them materialize.

        The Star

        The Star pictures an unclothed woman with one foot dipped into the edge of a small pool (intuition and inner voice) while the other remains firmly on the ground (common sense and logic). She pours out two containers which nourish both land and water (the subconscious and conscious) and has deep ties to the lush natural landscape around her. In the night sky behind her, a large yellow star is surrounded by 7 smaller white ones which represent the 7 chakras. 

        If you've been going through a rough time then the appearance of The Star in a reading is assurance that a time of renewed hope and purpose is about to follow. Though the recent past may have been painful, it's also cleansed you of limited beliefs and ideas that have been holding you back and left you open and vulnerable enough to enter into the next phase of your life. The star invites you to reconnect with your inner guidance and that no matter how hard a road you've been traveling, you're now about to embark upon a new journey which your past trials have served to prepare you for. 

        In the past position, the star may call upon you to remember the lessons you've learned during the time in your life you felt the most grounded and in tune with your inner voice. In the present and future positions, it's an assurance that life is about to get amazing again and that you're about to feel the reassurance of knowing that you're exactly where you're supposed to be.

          The Sun

          The Sun features a happy child surrounded by sunflowers as he sits atop a pure white horse soaking in the light. As you can see, this card is loaded with metaphors for light, innocence, and truth. The unclothed child symbolizes the joy, innocence, and freedom of childhood while the horse stands for purity and strength. Sunflowers by nature follow the sun which in itself is a symbol of life, enlightenment, radiance, and abundance.  

          In the context of a reading, this card could symbolize either a literal child or your connection to your own inner child. It's an encouragement to return to a sense of wonder and embrace innocence and fun rather than take life so seriously. 

          Seen in the past position it may indicate a previous time in which life was good and everything seemed carefree or childhood itself. Seen in the present or future, it can indicate a time of warmth, fun, and vibrancy, or the arrival of a literal child in your life.
