Did you know that there is a relationship between the Arcane Keys of the Tarot and the signs, planets and elements of the Zodiac?
In esoteric studies, tarot layouts use only the arcane Keys of the Tarot...only the 21 Keys are used and the remainder of the deck is set aside. So here is the set of associations between these two systems of divination.
0 The Fool The element of Air
1 The Magus Mercury, communications
2 The High Priestess The Moon, intuitive reflection
3 The Empress Venus, love
4 The Emperor Aries, dynamism
5 The Hierophant Taurus, loyalty and patience
6 The Lovers Gemini, communications
7 The Chariot Cancer, nourishment
8 Strength Leo, enacting the drama
9 The Hermit Virgo, introspection and healing
10 The Wheel of Fortune Jupiter, expansion
11 Karma Libra, balancing
12 The Hanged Man The element of Water, the reflective principle
13 Death Scorpio, understanding through death and regeneration
14 Temperance Sagittarius, aspiration
15 The Devil Capricorn, perseverance
16 The Tower Mars, the activator
17 The Star Aquarius, the visionary
18 The Moon Pisces, intuitive understanding
19 The Sun The Sun, vital essence of Life
20 Resurrection The element of Fire, eternal flame of life force
21 The Universe Saturn and the element of Earth. Everything is here now.

I've seen this list before in various publications and it always seemed a bit "forced" to me. I do use astrological correspondances for the court, rather than seeing them as the dark young man, etc.
