Since the tarot is establishing itself as a play culture arousing the fun and curiosity from people, this study is intended to arrange an opportunity for people to have more interest in the beauty by the beauty tarot card. Hereby, the beauty tarot card was interpreted by applying the kabala focusing on the major Arcana card, a core element of the universal weight tarot, which was the basis of the tarot card based on the precedent study. A tool was made that the beauty tarot dot could be used as a counseling method by applying the beauty tarot card to 22 major Arcana after changing 4 elements: fire, water, air, and ground that were basic symbols of universal tarot card into the brush, foundation, eyebrows, and shadow, regarding them as the beauty-related symbol. It is thought that the made beauty tarot card will enable the tarot readers or relevant profession to give beauty-related counsel usefully to people interested in the tarot card. It is expected that the interest and concern for the beauty tarot card heightens, and the tarot cards according with various aesthetic domains such as the makeup, hair, skin, and nail art are produced in the future.
