What Type Of Engagement Ring Matches Your Major Arcana Card?

The Major Arcana Tarot cards represent life’s lessons and the themes that influence the soul’s journey to enlightenment. These cards are numbered one through 21 and include an unnumbered card called “The Fool” whose journey is told through the Major Arcana. When you see a Major Arcana card in a Tarot reading, you’re being called to reflect on the life lessons and themes that you’re currently experiencing.

So what does it mean when you pull a Major Arcana card during a reading in which you are trying to pick the right engagement ring? Well, like the art of reading Tarot cards itself, it can mostly be left up to interpretation. However, we’ve put together a list of a few of the Major Arcana cards and rings we believe pair well together, should the occasion arise.

The Fool

The Fool represents spontaneity and willingness to try new things. There’s a chance your special someone likes to be the life and soul of the party and doesn’t mind making a statement. Rather than opting for a traditional band with a diamond stone, consider a nontraditional, thinly braided band with colorful stones.

The Magician

The Magician represents initiative and power. Make a bold statement to go with their bold personality and go with an emerald-cut gem.

The High-Priestess

The High-Priestess is driven by the need to know all of the variables before making a choice. A classic gold band with a simple, small gemstone is sure to win their heart.

The Emperor

The Emperor craves regulation and structure. A classic solitaire diamond is perfect for that special someone who wants a ring that can pair with every outfit and occasion.

The Lovers

The Lovers represent passion and establishing rapport. If your special someone is highly opinionated, consider tackling this together and let them help you pick the ring. Or, at least narrow it down to a few choices for you to choose from. Whether you go see a jeweler in person, or sit down together with a glass of wine and google “engagement rings northern Virginia,” choosing your ring together will make it that much more special.


Aside from the obvious, the Strength card also represents compassion and fortitude in a person, as well as a determination to protect those they love. A heart-shaped diamond is a perfect way to physically symbolize that love they show to others, as well as the love you feel for them.

The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man represents self-sacrifice and putting others before oneself. A lovely pearl engagement ring is a delicate and poetic symbol of love that goes above and beyond, just like your special someone.


Temperance represents balance and flow, thriving when the new and old meet to create something unique. Step outside the box and consider an opal ring if your special someone likes to try new things.

The Star

The Star represents hope and bright prospects, as well as fulfillment. Go all out and consider a stunning halo ring to show both your love and the bright future ahead of you.

The Sun

The Sun is confident and extroverted, excluding confidence and power. Combine the sparkle and shine of a round diamond with the modern square cut of an emerald gemstone as well as a princess cut! Like a dress with pockets or a comfy pair of Chico’s jeggings, this style gives your girl the best of both worlds!

One could almost compare the Major Arcana cards to personality types. Each represents something specific while overlapping ever so slightly with others in its line. With this in mind, if you pull a certain card and it speaks to the personality of the person you’re planning to propose to you, interpret it that way and use that to help make your choice.

Remember, Tarot cards don’t always show you something new—sometimes it just helps you to realize that the answer was right in front of you all along.
