Tarot Cards And Zodiac Signs: See How They Interact And Influence

Tarot cards and zodiac signs are both tools used in divination and astrology, respectively. These two systems can interact and influence each other. Each of the 12 Zodiac signs is linked to a specific card in the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck. For instance, Aries is associated with The Emperor card, representing authority and leadership, while Libra is linked to the Justice card, symbolizing balance, and fairness. These associations can provide fascinating insights into the personality traits, life challenges, and spiritual growth related to each Zodiac sign.

Spread The Magic In Your Tarot Cards And Zodiac Signs

I find connections in tarot cards and zodiac signs quite magical. A fun tarot reading can be had with this astrological 12-card spread with positions and meanings can give you a tremendous amount of self-guidance.

Cards for the twelve signs of the zodiac can be laid out in any manner that appeals to you. You can shuffle your tarot deck and place your cards in two rows of six, two columns of six, three rows of four etc, or place the cards in an astrological concept circle.

Each card represents a house in astrology and provides insight into different aspects of your life, such as your self-image, possessions, communication, home life, creativity, health, relationships, transformations, philosophy, career, friendships, and subconscious. This spread can be used to gain a comprehensive overview of your life or to explore the influences of the zodiac on your present circumstances.

The key is to read each of your tarot cards and zodiac signs as follows. Turning up each card, one at a time, think of its imagery, symbolism, and story in relation to the keywords in that zodiac position and then see what you make of your deeper astronomical reading.

Other Connections In Major Arcana Tarot Cards And Zodiac Signs

Each of the Tarot's Major Arcana cards correspond with specific planets, the moon, and the stars. Though different scholars each have their own opinions, in some ways there is a representation that we see more often than not.

When using astrology alongside the tarot, you will be opening a different viewpoint that could be quite a bit of help to you in your own readings. A better understanding and deeper meaning, if you will. The use of tarot cards and zodiac signs, no matter the opinion, is centuries old.

Remember to read your corresponding tarot card and balance the zodiac and the Arcana. When making important decisions and you read something confusing or something that doesn't align, you may want to step away from your tarot cards and zodiac signs spread for a short time and relax. Clarity from these powerful tools cannot come with stress or aggravation.
