Creating a Deck Need Help Naming Cards

  • Hello all, this is my first ever post on's forum! Anyway, I'm creating my own Tarot deck to help me get to know the card meanings better, and I've started with the major arcana. I'm renaming each something simple; for instance, I've called the Lover card "Crossroads" and the Temperance card "Harmony."

    I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for short, simple, descriptive names such as these that could apply to the cards Empress, Emperor, Hierophant, Judgement and the Universe. I know some of these are obvious but I'm honestly stuck. Also, on the Tower card, which name seems more fitting, "Divine Intervention" or "Transformation?"

    Thanks so much for any help offered!

  • Suggestions:

    Empress - Mother

    Emperor - Father

    Hierophant - Wise man/Priest

    Judgment - Karma/Self-assessment

    The Universe - The End and the Beginning/Completion

    The Tower - Transformation.

    It might help if you picked a certain theme for your deck.
