Karot Card Interpretation


For general Karot readings, the person receiving the reading draws four cards and places them face down in front of them. The interpreter will ask them to flip each card individually and interpret their meanings as they are revealed.

Cards can be in an upright or inverted position. An inverted position generally connotes the opposite of whatever the card ordinarily represents.

For specific questions only two cards are drawn. Both are revealed at the same time and interpreted together.


The Serpent. This card face features a snake eating its own tail. It represents inevitability, self destructive tendencies, and cycles.

Inverted: Stagnation, self-preservation


The Hunter. This card represents self sufficiency, knowledge that leads to survival, and overcoming dangerous obstacles.

Inverted: Seeking community, teamwork - inversion of the usually solitary Stetol implies subject will or needs to reach out to others


The Pelican. This card represents decadence, gluttony, opportunity, and short term benefits.

Inverted: Famine, hardship


The Farrier. This card represents patience and verbal mediation of conflicts.

Inverted: Disagreements, inability to reach consensus


The Capybara. On the face is a jolly dwarven tavernkeeper cleaning an ale stein. This card represents future social interactions with new people.

Inverted: Solitude, withdrawal - can imply problems in social life or suggest subject should make more time for themselves


The Swan. This card depicts a winged dancing woman, and it represents creativity, sophistication, and the arts.

Inverted: Creative frustration, social embarrassment


The face is an image of one large boag and one small boag throwing dice. This card represents risk.

Inverted: Averting disaster, overcoming an obstacle - the boag is "defeated" in this position

Inverted: Oppression, control (emotional or material)


The Sunflower. This card represents your faith.

Inverted: Doubt, self-consciousness


The Lagomorph. This card represents experimentation and curiosity in the pursuit of expanding your knowledge. In comparison to Tir Frig, this card focuses more on a trial-and-error approach rather than pure academic scholarship.
