Ever heard of tarot astrology? Well, these two mystical concepts would make a power couple. People can use both tarot reading and astrology to answer their questions or guide them in decisions — big and small.
As you might know, tarot reading uses tarot cards while astrology depends on the position of planets and constellations. Be sure to check out our monthly blog on zodiac sign crystal guides too.
So, we’re sharing how these two divination tools intertwine.
Tarot Astrology: Their Historical Link
The link between tarot and astrology in history can be found in a secret society called the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. This esoteric group in the late 19th and early 20th century studied and practiced metaphysics and paranormal activities including tarot, geomancy, and astrology.
Did you know that many modern-day concepts of magic and rituals such as Wicca were inspired by the Golden Dawn?
Now, two of its prominent members, Aleister Crowley and Arthur Edward Waite authored the Thoth deck and Rider-Waite deck respectively. These decks are linked to corresponding zodiac signs.
Today, tarot card readers use astrology to give more depth to a reading. Interestingly, tarot cards are also used in psychotherapy to help patients cope better.
Tarot Cards By Zodiac Signs
Each zodiac sign matches a card in the Major Arcana. In tarot reading, the Major Arcana or Trump cards consist of 21 numbered cards and one unnumbered card.
Let’s see what your Tarot card says about your zodiac sign below.
Aries: The Emperor
Your card represents the Emperor who embodies authority, ambition, and leadership. He sits on the throne decked with four rams’ heads, signifying his connection with Aries.
This card shows your ability to use your abilities and analytical skills to create a vision and structure to help achieve what you want in life.
Taurus: The Hierophant
What’s a hierophant? It means “high priest” in Greek, and this card is also known as the Pope. He represents wisdom, organization, and spiritual guidance. In his left hand is a triple scepter symbolizing control over matter, thoughts, and emotion.
Taurus and the Hierophant both can help nurture communities with their quiet strength and resilience.
The Hierophant is the fifth card among the Trump cards. This number represents spiritual understanding. The Greeks believed in five elements (earth, water, air, and fire) and the unifying factor. This unifying factor is about exploring awareness and existence to find harmony in all the elements.
Your card is an exciting one, Gemini. You have the Lovers card which corresponds to matters of the heart and duality of human nature.
The Lovers card shows a man and a woman, showing the power of communication not only between two bodies but between humans.
In the imagery, the man looks forward and this depicts the physical nature of our being. On the other hand, the woman gazes upward, symbolizing the intuitive.
As these two energies combine, they make up a whole, just as the Gemini twins do.
Cancer: The Chariot
Stand proud and strong! You are a warrior! The Chariot card is all about knowing your next destination and pushing past obstacles to reach it.
Since you have conflicting emotions and passions, you need to learn how to manage them. Moreover, you must set boundaries between your two opposite natures, as seen by the two horses.
With that strong and courageous personality, Leo, it’s no wonder your tarot card is Strength. While it’s about overcoming challenges, it’s also about showing love and compassion, as shown by the woman patting a lion.
Virgo: The Hermit
Your card shows your journey to find your true purpose, Virgo. The Hermit, an old man, represents your power to align your passions and dreams with your true purpose. In addition, it calls you to share your wisdom with others.
Libra’s tarot equivalent is Justice. Both seek balance and truth. Your integrity matters so always go for what’s fair and ethical even in complex situations.
As you may know, you take time to understand the situation deeply before making a decision and going with it. And that’s a good thing.
Your card, Death, personifies dynamic transformation. You keep learning and adapting to changes, that many people around you are still trying to figure out. Keep embracing your individuality.
As you’re high-spirited and unpredictable, your tarot card naturally would be Temperance. You need to keep yourself in check from time to time.
In the card, the angel demonstrates this by carefully pouring the liquid from one cup to the other, a cooking process called tempering. We know you love to go all out Sag but use this card to rein it in when needed. This also shows how important patience is to you.
Capricorn: The Devil
You’re a powerful mountain goat and the fierce and strong-willed Devil card represents you. Your zodiac sign’s link to this tarot card is based on the Greek god Pan, a half-man half-goat who looked after flocks. The Devil signifies your playful and sensual side.
Also, this represents those limiting beliefs you might have and the need to break them.
Aquarius: The Star
Your sign is ruled by the Star card, quirky Aquarius. And it’s fitting because you are a star in your own right, unconventional as you may be. You care for the community and come up with innovative ways to help others.
Do continue your humanitarian efforts and bring hope to others.
Pisces: The Moon
With your daydreaming, Pisces, it comes as no surprise that your tarot correspondent is the Moon. This represents the connection between the wild and tame nature of your mind. You’re a mutable sign, going with the changes around you. Amazingly, you’re able to identify your own complex feelings and that’s your strength.
