Zodiac Cards

IMG_4154Another Tarot Toolkit homework exercise. We handed out the Golden Dawn correspondences, and encouraged the students to look up the card that’s linked to their Zodiac Sun Sign, and to look for the possible presence of that card’s energies within themselves.

I like to consider the other Signs that also play host to a lot of Planetary placements in my chart, too. Most populated for me are Scorpio, Virgo, and Pisces, so according to the GD, I must have in me a lot of the energies of the Death, Hermit, and Moon cards. And I mostly can’t disagree… How about you – what are your Zodiac cards?

  1. Being traditional and using inner planets: I’ve got a Sun Mercury conjunction in Capricorn and a Jupiter Saturn conjunction in Libra so I’m: Justice and the Devil! This post reminds me a lot of this blog:

    I wish your table would have listed Modern Vs Golden Dawn correspondences. As people start to learn tarot, not knowing those correspondences from the start seems to add confusion to their practice later on.

    Very informative post. I love how you’re able to do tables in WordPress. That deck looks great.

    1. Thanks, Nicholas! You know, the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction seems like it would be so tricky to dope out and then work with. John Lennon had that, and I remember tripping out over it, as that was the first time I ever saw that in somebody’s chart… And I could probably do a table like you suggested — I actually just did this one in Word, and then pasted it right into WordPress.
