The Divine Hand is an interesting and subtle symbol used on five different cards in the seminal Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot deck.
The exact same symbols may not appear in more modern decks, however many newer Tarot decks do feature variants of the same, widely accepted symbology.
Here's What Divine Hands symbolize in Tarot
The iconic "Divine Hand" symbol found in the classic Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot artwork, is centrally featured on all the Ace cards of each Minor Arcana suit.
the hand represents a spark of creation or initiation — a divine, primary force of beginnings, and a primal source of energy.
Typically depicted as a white, floating hand reaching from a cloud, the hand represents a spark of creation or initiation — a divine, primary force of beginnings, and a primal source of energy.
In addition to the 4 Aces, the floating hand also appears on the Four of Cups card.
Here Are the Five Tarot Cards on Which the Divine Hand Makes an Appearance
The Ace of Cups
The Four of Cups

The Ace of Pentacles
The Ace of Swords
The Ace of Wands
