When Tarot Wanders Among The Stars

A Beginner's Guide to Stellar Readings

Hey there, Mystics! Ever wondered how tarot cards shake hands with the sparkling stars of astrology? Let’s set our feet on a beautiful journey to uncover the cosmic correlation between the major arcana cards in tarot and the zodiac signs of Astrology. Buckle up; it’s going to be a star-studded ride!

Tarot and Zodiac: A Match Made in the Cosmos

As you know, Tarot is more than a collection of pretty pictures, particularly the major arcana – it’s a universe of symbolism, wisdom, and, guess what, astrological references! Each major arcana card is like a unique character in an epic story, and the zodiac signs work to expand on how their tales unfold by adding deeper layers of detail, giving more dimension to each story.

Historical Star-gazing in Tarot

Let's time-travel a bit. Tarot cards, in one form or another, have been around since the 15th century. They were originally used for games before evolving into the mystical divination tool we adore today. The use of symbolism in tarot, ranging from colours to numbers and, yes, astrological symbols, became more pronounced as the cards took on a more mystical role. Each symbol, image, and colour wasn't just chosen for its aesthetic appeal (though they are quite pretty), but for the deep, interconnected meanings they represent.

Astrology Meets Arcana: Enhancing Your Reading Skills

For you, as a tarot reader, understanding the astrological underpinnings of the major arcana can be like adding some extra seasoning to your reading skills. It’s like suddenly realizing your tarot deck has been trying to talk to you in another language the whole time!

"Alysa Bartha's book, Essential Tarot Mastery, is described as a comprehensive guide for Tarot readers. The book is structured uniquely, divided into eight Elements rather than traditional chapters, allowing readers to use it more as a reference guide or encyclopedia. It covers a wide range of topics essential to Tarot, including the structure of the deck, meanings of each card, the stories behind modern Tarot decks, developing a relationship with your deck, and exercises to strengthen intuition. The book also details how to care for your deck and includes information on corresponding crystals and astrology connections​​.
