Astrology & Tarot are predictive tools to use when more answers might be needed!
While the dawn of modern Tarot was born in the late 1800s, if you were able to travel back in time 6,000 years ago, to towering, layers of ziggurat in Babylonia, you’d be able to stare & wonder at the planets & stars alongside a Chaldean astrologer. Tarot & Astrology have always been connected! Tracing back to the earliest tarot decks has always been connected with The Sun, & Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, ect… In the year 1785, a French occultist Jean-Baptiste Alliette came up with a system set of correspondences between the Tarot & Astrology. And as time passed, soon other philosophers & mystics, began to notice the vast similarities between the Tarot & Astrology. Today though, the Tarot’s most knowledgeable association with astrology is on a much more recent study.
In the Tarot deck, you have the Major Arcana & the Minor Arcana, a total of 78 cards in the tarot deck.
