So, here are my top 10 Tarot cards for giving thanks and being grateful.

Ten of Pentacles

The Ten of Pentacles is the card of abundance! A wealthy family are enjoying the fruits of their labours and have joined in a celebration of all that they have achieved. As a Pentacles card, this Ten is about accumulation and giving thanks for material wealth.

Nine of Cups

The man in the Nine of Cups looks so smug and content with everything that he has. In fact, this card is often dubbed the ‘wish' card as all that you wish for will be granted. Remember to give thanks for everything that you have and acknowledge the good feelings of fulfilment and contentment that come with it.

Six of Pentacles

The Six of Pentacles is a card of giving and oftentimes when we feel that we have an abundant and rich lifestyle, we feel compelled to share that with others as a way of expressing our thanks to the Universe. This is a good reminder, too, that in order to receive, we must first give.


The Sun card is one of the most positive and fulfilling cards in the Tarot deck. As you gaze into the sun on the card, you can feel its warmth and healing energy radiating outwardly.

Six of Wands

The Six of Wands is a card of triumph, success and public recognition. If you are the successful person riding on the horse, then give thanks to the people who made your success possible. Or if you are one of the members in the crowd, remember to recognise other people's successes and victories.

Nine of Pentacles

The woman in the Nine of Pentacles has a true appreciation of beauty and all things luxurious. She takes a moment to pause in her beautiful garden, wearing her beautiful clothes, to give thanks for all of her material wealth and luxuries. She also knows that she has worked hard for this and can now give herself permission to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds her.

Four of Swords

The Four of Swords is a card of meditation and going within. When we quieten our mind and allow ourselves a peaceful moment, we can find it within ourselves to acknowledge and give thanks for everything that we have and that we feel.


The Empress embodies abundance. She shares her abundance with others through nurturing, loving and supporting the people around her. She gives thanks for all that she has and is energised by the love she gives and receives. The Empress also reminds us of our connection with Mother Earth and encourages us to give thanks for the abundance of nature's beauty.


The phrase that jumps to mind when I look at the imagery of the Strength card is “I bow to you” or “Namaste”. By bowing down to others, we show our respect and our appreciation for the value they bring to our own lives. The woman in the card bows down to the lion, and in doing so, she calms him and gains his trust and respect. And by bowing down to ourselves, we show that we love and respect ourselves which further strengthens us.

Ace of Cups

The Ace of Cups often reflects an outpouring of emotion and freedom of expression. I see this as someone showering their love and appreciation on others, giving thanks and expressing true gratitude without reservation. The more we open our heart, the freer we are to express our true feelings and our true selves, which in turn generates love and compassion.
