What if the Game of throne characters were Major Arcana cards?
Here is a list of the most likely GOT vs Major Arcana connections. The best way to learn the Major Arcana cards is to understand the archetypal energies within them. Game of thrones is filled with archetypal characters, many can be seen in the tarot cards. Here is my list.
The Fool is Tyrion Lannister. He is both tricky and fair. He is a standout amongst the best players in the GOT plot. His story is one of survival. He never neglects to convey fun comments and hilarious replies. Much the same as with the Fool, Tyron has a tendency to be grossly underestimated.
The Magician is Daario Naharis. Daario is a profoundly talented and competent warrior. Being prepared a pit contender since the age of 12 and after that battling as a sellsword after that, generally the majority of Daario’s life has spun around battling it out in the fighting pits. Amid his years as a pit contender, he figured out how to battle with a few diverse battling styles. His battling style depends on precise hits and accurate blows taking out taking his often bigger, more terrifying rivals. Just like the Magician, he never fails to impress.
The High Priestess is Melisandre (the red woman). Melisandre is a priestess of the Lord of Light and close adviser to Stannis Baratheon during his mission to claim the iron throne. Melisandre trusts totally in the force of her god and the visions in the flames. She refutes every one of the individuals who question her. She has complete confidence in her capacity to accurately decipher what the lord of light is telling her.
The Empress is Olenna Tyrell. Lady Olenna has been an expert of court legislative issues and has had a keen interest in politics for the duration of her life. She’s additionally known for her mind and mockery. Subsequently, Lady Olenna is prominently nicknamed the Queen of Thorns. She is nurturing and caring, especially towards her family to whom she protects against the Lannisters.
The Emperor is Tywin Lannister. Tywin Lannister is Intelligent, cunning, savage and threatening, Tywin was the wealthiest man in Westeros and adequately its ruler when he served as Hand of the King to his grandsons, Joffrey, and Tommen. His main impetus was to secure his legacy and that of the Lannister name, and he would do whatever he considered important to ensure the future of the family name.
The Hierophant is Lord Varys. Lord Varys is an expert of masking and can undoubtedly change his appearance, walk, smell, and outfit to end up unrecognisable. His history of giving data to all sides, of supporting adversaries, of setting opponents against each other, all to accomplish his main agenda has earned him a notoriety of being tacky and dishonest amongst the nobles at court. In truth, he values order, stability, security and peace. He is loyal towards the side who work for those objectives also.
The Lovers is Dany and Drogo. Their relationship surprisingly turns into an astoundingly glad one. Dany began to abandon the shy, detached young lady she had been, blooming into a confident young woman. As Dany figures out how to talk the Dothraki dialect, Drogo addresses Dany lovingly as “moon of my life,” while she calls him “my sun and stars.” In spite of the fact that Drogo doesn’t comprehend or share her complaints to the conventional Dothraki practices, Drogo supports Dany when she arranges his warriors to stop, enchanted by his wife’s developing courage. The pair develops to adore each other profoundly.
The Chariot is Jorah Mormont. Originally, Jorah was acting as a spy for Varys, King Robert’s spymaster in King’s Landing, sending Varys data about the Targaryen. Be that as it may, he develops to regard and respect Daenerys and starts serving her vigorously. He saves her life and quits sending reports to Varys. He disregards an official imperial acquittal which would permit him to return home to Westeros. He creates solid and solitary affections for Daenerys and becomes in many ways the hero of the story. At the point when Daenerys learns of his past spying, he is rejected by her administration and requested to abandon her vicinity. However, Jorah’s story does not end there. He has the plan to gain her trust yet again.
Strength is Queen Daenerys Targaryen. Her marriage to Drogo and ensuring cooperation with the Dothraki individuals gives her the certainty and quality to lead and the confidence in herself as the legitimate ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. She formally styles herself as Queen Daenerys of House Targaryen, First of Her Name. Daenerys hatched three dragons after she walked into the flames to claim them, giving her the title ‘Mother of Dragons’. Daenerys’s courage and passion make her perhaps the most loved of all Game of Thrones characters.
Hermit is Brandon (and my Favourite GOT character). Brandon is a noble boy with special abilities. He is a warg. A warg is someone who can enter the mind of animals and perceive the world through their senses, even control their actions. Bran is the character in Game of Thrones who is most deeply involved in magic. Bran’s character matures perhaps the most out of all the characters, he transforms from innocent boy to a young man with supernatural abilities. He is connected to the ‘old gods’ and has old soul energy. He guides his friends through the haunted forest using his abilities, making him the perfect character to describe the Hermit.
Wheel of fortune is Arya Stark. There is something special about Arya Stark. Her story takes dramatic twists and turns, where she at the end of season 5 ends up in Braavos, at the Headquarters of the Faceless Men, the House of Black and White. This is where she begins initiation into the organization, however, it is to the detriment of her identity.

Arya gets her sight back after she recognizes the Kindly Man while blind. After recovering her sight, Arya is given her first death task. When she succeeds the Kindly man gives Arya an acolyte’s robe and appoints her to start her first apprenticeship.
Justice is Missandei. A slave who served as a translator to the Masters of Astapor, Missandei was liberated when Daenerys Targaryen freed the slaves. Missandei now serves Daenerys as her trusted translator and Handmaiden. After Daenerys escapes Meereen on the back of her winged serpent Drogon, Missandei stays in the city as part of her Small Council alongside Tyrion Lannister and Lord Varys.
The Hanged Man is Jon Snow. Jon Snow is a great example of how someone might lead through sacrifice. Jon Snow is a serious character, who had to grow up quicker than his half-siblings. Regardless of his serious disposition, he is caring towards those he sees as kindred outcasts and rejects. He is noted to be a talented horseman and a skilled swordsman. He also has kept his faith with the ‘old gods’. Like his little brother Bran, he is a Warg and can open his third eye. His dreams seem to be prophetic.
Death is The White Walkers. White Walkers are a supernatural race who poses a great threat to humans. In the present day, most trust they never existed and are just myths. Even the few who trust they did once exist think they went extinct years ago. None were seen for thousands of years after the Long Night. White Walkers can freeze anything they touch and they also have superhuman strength. Their most deadly ability is that they can reanimate the dead as their servants.
Temperance is Margaery Tyrell. Margaery is an intelligent, shrewd and politically savvy young woman, very much the protégé of her grandmother, Lady Olenna Redwyne. Margaery is welcomed by cheering smallfolk when she arrives in the capital. She is all around cherished by the people of the city as Tyrell due to men the feeding of the starving population in her name before her arrival. Margaery is a master at balancing tricky situations.
The Devil is Petyr Baelish (littlefinger). Petyr was destined to the little and unimportant House Baelish, spending a vast majority of his grown-up life attempting to transcend his humble beginnings and get to be something more prominent. Peter craves power and status. He is a talented businessman and is an expert of manipulations. He unholy uses his powers to execute control and terror, often by means where he seems completely innocent. As stated by George R. R. Martin, “Everyone believes him on the grounds that he appears to be weak, and he’s benevolent, and he’s exceptionally useful.” Just as the Hierophant and the Devil are opposing tarot cards, Lord Varys, and Littlefinger are opposing characters; Varys uses his skills to create good while Littlefingers uses his to create evil.
The Tower is Ramsay Snow. Ramsay is perhaps the most sadistic of all GOT characters. During the War of the five kings, Ramsay retakes Winterfell from Theon and kidnaps him. Ramsay tortures Theon in the cruelest of ways, both physically and emotionally. Ramsay pretends to be Theon’s savior, giving him hope, only to recapture and torture him. Ramsay completely brainwashes Theon, giving Theon a new identity as the broken ‘Reek’.
The Star is Sansa Stark. Sansa is a traditional beauty who at the beginning of the series is enthralled by stories of romance and adventure. Sansa initially dreams of the world beyond Winterfell, and she longs to marry King Joffrey. During engagement to King Joffrey, she witnesses to the horror the true nature of King Joffrey when he sentences her father to death by beheading and forces her to watch the execution.

Just like the Moon uses its many faces, Jaqen H’ghar shapeshifts to the identity he needs to accomplish his tasks.
The Sun is Samwell Tarly. Samwell is perhaps the most sympathetic of all GOT characters. He has a heart of gold, and he is fond of music and songs. Even though he prefers books over weapons and soft fabrics over armour, he protects those he loves with his life. His soft nature makes him afraid of blood and violence. Sam is timid and unsure of himself initially, however, the character grows into someone who makes thoughtful and intelligent decisions. Sam ends up taking care of Gilly and her son, and their safety becomes his primary priority. Sam, Gilly, and her son travel to Oldtown to study and replace Aemen as the new maester of the night watch.
High Sparrow is Judgement. The High Sparrow emerged as the leader of the religious movement ‘the sparrows’ who protests what they see as immorality in society. His critics started calling him the “High Sparrow” in sarcastic comparison to the High Septon, the highest ordained leader of the Faith of the Seven. His followers adopted the nickname with pride and turned the name into one of respect. His original name is unknown as tradition made it forbidden to ever refer to him by his given name. The High Sparrow seems like a harmless old man, his personality is far from it. He has no political motives and cannot be bribed or intimidated, making him an assertive and fearless leader. The High Sparrow imprisons Cersei and Queen Margaery. The High Sparrow makes Cersei atone for what he sees as her sins.
The World is Brienne of Tarth. Brienne is perhaps the most dutiful and trustworthy of all the GOT characters, making her the perfect candidate to be the world tarot card. Brienne is introduced when she wins a tournament at Renly Baratheon’s camp, making her a member of Renly’s personal guard. Shortly after when Brienne is helping Renly prepare his armour he is assassinated by a shadow. Brienne is accused of his murder and flees with Catelyn Stark who Brienne makes an oath to protect.
