Tarot cards are another way of divining the future. The practice goes back to the Medieval Ages. The typical deck has 78 cards. 22 Major Arcana or Trumps and 56 Minor Arcana. The Minor Arcana has four suits and depending on the type of deck you use, it does correspond to our present day four suited playing card deck.
Twelve of the Major Arcana cards are correspond to a Zodiac Sign. The remaining Major Arcana cards have assignments to the Planets.
Many versions and variation on a theme type decks have been created in the last 30 years. For purposes of information, the correspondences here relate to most often the beginning tarot deck for anyone, The Rider-Waite Deck.
Interpretations of each of these trumps are largely left up to learned mediator of the seeker's question and can not be handed down as "rote" interpretations.
There are many good texts that pull all this information together when learning to read Tarot. We recommend The Easy Guide to Tarot by Marcia Masino as a start.
This information we present on this astrology site is often the charts erected and interpreted by the Astrologers of Indigo Ray, we are requested to also read the tarot cards.
