Astrology and Tarot

Knowing which Tarot cards represent which signs of the zodiac can really help to improve your accuracy when giving a Tarot reading, allowing you to give more accurate descriptions of people.Every star sign in Astrology has a corresponding Tarot card in the Major Arcana. In addition, each of the suits of the Minor Arcana is associated with an element and as such, is associated with corresponding elements in the zodiac:

 

 

Many of the numbered minor arcana cards also represent a sign of the zodiac. These can be very useful when trying to establish which zodiac sign a certain court card is representing as opposed to which element.    

Furthermore each of the court cards can represent the age or maturity level of the person they represent:

 

  • Pages: Young children or people who are young at heart

  • Knights: Young adults or people who are starting over

  • Queens: Represent mature women or people with emotional maturity

  • King: Represent mature men or men who are grounded and can provide leadership

 

Each type of court card also represents an element meaning the person the card represents may have a certain zodiac sign but will be influenced by the element associated with that court card:

 

  • Pages are associated with Earth

  • Knights with Air

  • Queens with Water

  • Kings with Fire
