Numerological & Astrological Attributes of the Major Arcana

Tarot coincides greatly with numerology and astrology. The more symbols that unite a card in relation to a spread, the more information is given about the seeker, her motivations, influences, and the overall picture of her situation.

Each Major Arcana card is appointed with a number and astrological sign or planetary assignment. Each Astrological sign has an element and a modality. Intuitively taking in these pieces of information in unison will align detailed information within the Tarot. Below I have created a chart to easily see modalities, elements, and how they relate to each other. Take my drawings with a grain of salt!
