The Tarot deck is a great way to predict your future and to analyze a present situation. Every Tarot reading has cards dealt into foundation areas that illustrate your past. Most of the time these cards are concerned with your recent past or perhaps issues from your childhood. But there are a few cards in the Tarot deck that may reveal information about your past lives when they appear in the part of your reading that deals with the past.

Tarot cards that depict a large body of water might indicate information about your past life when they appear in your foundation (past) position. Read below to discover more about the past life significance of tarot imagery.


You were wise and reserved in your past life. This lifetime is a reward for the good karma you built up by being a resource for humanity in the distant past. You may have tendencies of excessive behavior, like drinking to excess or overeating, love addiction or just being a drama queen.

The Moon

A Tarot reading will let you know just where on earth your lost soulmate can be found. But beware: he or she might be a child, an older person, a pet or even a tree in a meadow. Tracking down a lover from a past life is often more difficult than waiting for the cosmos to match you up with someone perfect for who you are today.
