Card 3: The Empress of JoJo Tarot Cards is an exceptional hybrid between flesh and Stand. Its powers are simplistally mediocre. It has a parasitic build. The Empress of JoJo Tarot cards symbolises growth of new life form since it acts as a hybrid (hinting on the nature of this Stand) and its comparable characteristics to the Tarot Cards.

Card 4: The Emperor of JoJo Tarot Cards is the Hol Horse and it can serve only as a mediator force and resembles a gun. It portrays order and control, like the gun in the hand of a mediator. Since it is portrayed as a symbol of Force and Power, thus it is compared to the Emperor of Tarot Cards.

Card 5: The Hierophant of JoJo Tarot Cards has a huge number of abilities, for combat and scouting. It has relatively weak hand-on-hand combat abilities. This Tarot Card is a bridge between Heaven and Earth, and long range capabilities of the Stand Hierophant Green is why it is compared to the Hierophant of the Tarot cards.

Card 6: The Lovers of JoJo Tarot Cards is very small, enabling it to infiltrate the human body unnoticed. Being a robotic humanoid form, it is a combination of a fly, flea and robot. The Lovers Tarot Card symbolizes the bond between two people like the link portrayed by the JoJo Tarot Cards between the fly and the human.

Card 7: The Chariot of JoJo Tarot Cards is the Silver Chariot and is a powerful, battle-dedicated close-range Stand that primarily fights with a rapier. This Silver Chariot card is similar to the Chariot Tarot Card symbolising invasion and victory.

The card of Justice symbolises results and consequences and this Stand is closely similar to the functional characteristics of the Justice Tarot Card.

Card 12: Death Thirteen of JoJo Tarot Cards is capable of attacking a person once asleep, thus capable of controlling only dreams. It horrifies people, mocks their existence and belittles them, thus resembling the concept of physical death portrayed by Tarot Cards to a large extent.

Card 14: Temperance of JoJo Tarot Cards has the ability to absorb organic matter to grow stronger and sturdier. It has no personality and its ability to consume flesh is an opposing action to the original card.

Card 15: Ebony Devil’s power comes alive when Devo is hit by his enemies. Ebony Devil is symbolising confusion bringing misfortune to its bearer.

Card 16: The Tower of JoJo Tarot Cards is fast and extremely nimble though small and extremely fragile. Since it causes accidents deliberately interrupting a journey mid way using unexpected and chaotic processes like the accidents, it is compared to the Tarot of The Tower.

Card 18: The Dark Blue Moon of JoJo Tarot Cards can scale as projectiles, its skills are more effective in aquatic environment. It depicts trouble, lies, betrayal and fear like the Moon Tarot Card.

Card 19: The Sun of JoJo Tarot Cards can emit light and heat at lethal levels over a large area. It is compared to the physical heat and energy rather than the optimistic rays of hope portrayed by the Sun Tarot Card.

Card 20: Judgement of JoJo Tarot Cards has above average strength and speed. The Stand is consistent with the Tarot card in reverse order, thus creating doubt and deceit in people’ minds affecting their decision making capabilities.

Card 21: The World of JoJo Tarot Cards requires to be at a closer distance to effectively combat its enemies and its overwhelming strength and near unstoppable control over time, makes it the most dangerous of all Stands. The card is a symbol of tectonic chance, it is the beginning of a new world order. Even before it appeared, the rumours of its power was enough to create fear in its followers.

Tarot is the depiction of true symbolic forms and patterns. It is the most oblique wisdom present on Earth yet it is one of the most effective ways of channelisation of knowledge. Jojo Tarot Cards are one of the most experimental version of Major Arcana Tarot cards available around you. You can also draw a daily Tarot using the JoJo Tarot Cards. The JoJo Tarot Cards impart wisdom in a skewed pattern, even more oblique than the true format. Tarot Cards of JoJo is a superior form of expression yet very diverse and all the more difficult to understand.
