What’s your Tarot card?

One of the most frequent question I’ve got it’s: what it’s my Tarot card? Well, most of the Tarot readers pick one of the Major Arcane (Trumps) card corresponding to your zodiac sign. I think it’s incorrect. Those cards represents our higher aspiration, what we should become, not who we was born. The proper choice is the card representing the decan we was born. Those are the 36 numbered cards from 2 to 10 of each suite (colour). Even most of the astrologers ignore this aspect, but the decan based Astrology it’s more relevant then the zodiac based one. The decan based Astrology revels 36 types of personalities instead the traditional 12 zodiac signs.
Each zodiac sign governs 30 degrees of the Neutral Astro Chart (natal chart). Twelve zodiac signs at 30 degrees each constitute the complete Neutral Astro Chart encompassing 360 degrees.
Each sign is divided into three divisions of 10 degrees, each sign has 3 decans, one for each division of 10 degrees. Each decan has its own ruler. While some astrologers consider the Sun in each sign as the main characteristic of each sign, in the decan based Astrology the characteristic of these 36 types of personality it’s given by the different rulers. Unfortunately, which planet rules each decan it’s still subject of debates among astrologers.
Just keep in mind that we’re talking generalities. Obviously, an astrologer will make your natal chart which reveals all the details and particularities of your character based on the unique positions of the Sun, Moon and the planets at the exact time and location of the native’s birth.

    Not sure what do you mean?
    How and from where did you learn Tarot, get your informations? Hopefully not from Doreen Virtue!!! (LOL – Joking!)
    This is pretty much the basic, the core of the system. The Golden Dawn system – which is at the foundation of both Waite and Crowley’s deck.
    The astrological assignment was first revealed by Papus (Gérard Encausse) in his book “The Tarot of the Bohemians” in 1909 and it was further developed by Aleister Crowley in his “The Book of Thoth” published in 1944.
    Other authors may propose other astrological assignments, but far as I know, they can’t give a reasonable explanation and don’t have a clear system.
    The Numerals was well attributed, but I think the rest of the cards were misinterpreted.
