Throughout history, the science of astrology and using the art of Tarot cards have become increasingly linked. Mystery & magical.
Astrology and Tarot cards throughout the centuries have always been connected.
You can look back 6,000 years to see this. There’s a magic-like mystery that one needs to decipher, intuition is needed as well as understanding the meaning of the Tarot cards, how they intertwine with the world of astrology.
Astrology Tarot is the structure through which a reading of the cards in a tarot deck assists you through struggling times by offering a mirroring of your past, future, and present. Tarot is carefully connected with astrology as each card associates with a world, element, or astrological sign. Tarot cards are utilized for divination, frequently referred to as fortune-telling. Lots of psychologists have utilized them as well, feeling that the cards typically make clients dive into how they feel about themselves. This is done through the subconscious. For instance, let’s say you understand that your present line of work is not working out, however, you do not permit yourself to think of it. Getting a tarot card reading that reveals you have to change one’s line of work is not actually telling your future so much as it is making you face what is really going on in your life.
A tarot card deck consists of 78 cards that fall into 2 distinct parts. This part of the deck has 22 cards, 21 suitless cards referred to as trumps, and one card called The Fool.
The other 56 cards are in the Minor Arcana. The Minor Arcana is divided into 4 suits, just like regular playing cards. Each of these cards represents a certain component of the Earth and is associated with particular astrological indications.
The Minor Arcana cards offer more details to the Major Arcana cards. The Major Arcana offers a specific instructions and details about their personal life and mental and psychological state. The Minor Arcana cards provide extra guidance in locations such as relationships, successes, failures, and activities.

Modern decks of tarot cards are much more expressive than the earlier version, due in part to the images being more carefully associated with their meaning. Tarot readers reward their cards and typically will not let others touch them as they are seen as spiritual tools of their trade.
