Tarot is a divination that uses a pack of playing cards to foretell a question that an individual may have. Astrology is a system of many divinations and in America, Western Astrology is known to be the most popular system of astrology. Tarot has been known to be related to the occult and fortune telling and astrology is related to astronomy as it observes the universes and planetary movements above. Although these two divinations may seem far fetch from one another, they actually make a very good combination together. The common trait between these two is that both Astrology and Tarot can be time based. Although there may be different divinations in astrology, in Western astrology a horoscope lasts for a specific period of time ( week ,day, month, year) and a Tarot reading shows the answer to a question that may be periodic or near.

There are 16 cards that represent the Court Arcana in the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck. They are the Page, Knight, Queen, and King of each suit. The four Knights are instigators of change. They mark the beginning or end of a sequence of events for the querent. Since we only need 12 cards to make this correlation we will disregard the Knights for this discussion. I believe the remaining 12 Court Arcana have a direct correlation with the signs of the Zodiac.
In ancient times it was thought that the world was made up of just four elements---- Fire, Water, Air and Earth. Each of these elements represents three astrological signs and correlates with one of the suits of the Court Arcana. I’ll list each Court card and the astrological sign that I believe most closely matches the generally accepted traits of that card. If in any particular spread, one of these cards does not indicate the specific astrological sign shown, then it probably represents one of the other signs within its element.
