Cherubs are a minor, but important symbol appearing on three different cards in the seminal Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot artwork.
The exact same symbols may not show up in all, non-Rider Waite decks, but many newer Tarot decks do use adaptations of the same, generally accepted symbology.
Here's What cherubs indicate in Tarot
Cherubs in traditional Judeo-Christian belief are minor angels who indicate the presence of something Holy or Divine.
The cherubim themselves do not exert direct influence, but represent a part of the Divine realm
The cherubim themselves do not exert direct influence, but represent a part of the Divine realm. When cherubs appear in artistic representations, we can assume that the workings of the Divine are at hand somewhere. In classical artwork, Cherubs don't represent God directly, but instead indicate the workings of a part of the Divine plan.
Similarly, in traditional Tarot symbolism, cherubs may not be an indication of the direct presence of the Divine, as much as they represent a person or action which plays some part in a greater Divine plan.
Interestingly, cherubim appear on 3 of the Queen cards of the Minor Arcana: The Queen of Cups, the Queen of Pentacles and the Queen of Swords. Cherubim do not appear on the Queen of Wands card.
