What's Your Star Sign Tarot Card?
- Aries - The Emperor (IV)
Aries, the fiery ram, charging into life like a fearless warrior, represents The Emperor - the fourth card in Fool's journey. The Emperor symbolises authority figures, the establishment and father figures which matches Aries' leadership qualities.
- Taurus - The Hierophant (V)
Taurus, the earthy pleasure-loving bull, represents The Hierophant, the card of spiritual wisdom, religious beliefs and tradition. Much like Taurus, as a fixed sign, The Hierophant signifies tradition and will come to you when you're at a crossroads between your spiritual values and tradition.
- Gemini - The Lovers (VI)
Gemini, the playful cosmic chatterbox, goes hand-in-hand with The Lovers. This card ties to relationships, values and harmony. It isn't just about love, but choices and alignment, which perfectly ties into the traditional qualities of Gemini, who is known to be one of the most fluid and adapting signs.
- Cancer - The Chariot (VII)
Cancer, the caring crab, is represented by The Chariot, which may be a surprise to many as Cancer is ruled by the Moon. The Chariot ties into control, willpower, determination and success. Even though Cancer is more famously known for its nurturing qualities, it is one of the most tenacious and protective signs of the zodiac, befitting of The Chariot.
- Leo - Strength (VIII)
Leo, the shining lion of the zodiac, is linked to the card of Strength. This card ties into courage, persuasion, influence and compassion. As the only Sun-ruled sign known for its love of the spotlight with a kind heart, Leo is well suited to Strength, a card that comes to you when the universe calls you to find your inner strength and overcome obstacles.
- Virgo - The Hermit (IX)
Virgo, who is always willing to lend a helping hand, rules over the 6th house of the every day and health. Virgo is associated with The Hermit, a card that comes when you need to do some soul-searching, introspection, and seek inner guidance instead of reaching out.
- Libra - Justice (XI)
Libra, the harmonious peacemaker, rightfully represents Justice. As Libras are, this card is about fairness, truth, cause and effect. Justice calls you to be just and know that every action has a consequence, so choose honesty and fairness above all.
- Scorpio - Death (XIII)
Scorpio, the phoenix of the zodiac, gets Death, a scary one too many, but it's actually the card of transformation and breaking cycles. In astrology, Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and the 8th house; both signify the natural cycle of life: birth, death and rebirth. Scorpio placements were put on this earth to undergo transformations and constantly reinvent themselves. Death Card comes when you're at a crossroads and need things to end for positive change to come.
- Sagittarius - Temperance (XIV)
Sagittarius, the adventurous archer, is Temperance. Like the spiritual and worldly Sagittarius, Temperance is about finding purpose in balance and moderation. It is about taking the middle ground and leveraging all the cards you've been dealt.
- Capricorn - The Devil (XV)
Capricorn, the ambitious mountain goat, corresponds to The Devil in tarot. Another one that, at a glance, would intimate anyone if it came out during a tarot reading. The Devil symbolises your shadow self, your attachments and addiction, as well as restriction and sexuality. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of rules, karma and restriction, so finding the balance between the extremes is always a theme in your life if you have Capricorn placements.
- Aquarius - The Star (XVII)
Aquarius, the airy water-bearer, gets The Star. The Star is about hope, faith, purpose, renewal and spirituality, perfectly suited to Aquarius, who Uranus rules. Uranus is about the 'other', innovation and creativity. Much like Uranus, The Star calls you to use your creativity for renewal and find your purpose.
- Pisces - The Moon (XVIII)
Finally, dreamy Pisces is represented by The Moon, a mystical card that embodies emotions, illusion, fear, anxiety, subconscious and intuition. As the final sign of the zodiac, it is the most experienced and knowledgeable sign. But wisdom comes in all shapes and forms; in Pisces' case, it comes as otherworldly intuition, and sometimes, with all the world's knowledge at your feet, there is a tendency to have your head in the clouds and too into your own subconscious.
Major Arcana VS Minor Arcana in Tarot
Let's take a step back and explain the whats, whys and hows.
If you're not too familiar with the ins and outs of tarot, don't worry - we'll explain. Here's a very brief crash course in all things tarot:
- The origin of the tarot is disputed, but it has been around since at least the mid-15th century.
- How does tarot work? Tarot works with a combination of the reader's intuition, imagery, patterns, and a touch of the universe has mysterious ways to communicate.
- Tarot is a tool for self-reflection, guidance and, for some, divination.
- Each card has its own meaning, symbolism and message.
- The meaning of each card changes if it's upright or reversed.
- There are 78 tarot cards in total - 22 in the major arcana and 56 minor arcana cards.
Whether major or minor, each card is far from random. A tarot deck follows what it's called 'The Fool's journey' - what is this? The first card of a tarot deck and of the major arcana is called, The Fool. It symbolises new beginnings, having faith and being a little naive and uncertain about the future.
Think about it as The Fool is the main character on your favourite TV show that grows, learns and faces challenges as the seasons go by - that's exactly what The Fool's journey is in tarot, and it's a great way to learn about what each card represents. This journey ends with The World: the card of completion, accomplishment and travel.

What Do Tarot Cards and Star Signs Have To Do with Each Other?
Every star sign has a matching tarot card, but why? They haven't always been linked at all; astrology predates tarot by centuries. Astrology was and is mathematically and scientifically based and was used for agriculture, maritime purpose, and so much more. It gave steps to modern astronomy and predictive analytics and influenced how we structure time.
Tarot, on the other hand, has always been mystical and otherworldly. Tarot and astrology somehow found their way together throughout time; tarot has been used to aid astrology and vice versa. Some tarot readers use astrology to advance their practice further, and it is an extra set of tools in your belt to help people understand their lives.
What are Your ‘Big Three’ in Astrology?
Remember the ‘big three’ (sun, moon and rising) from before? We couldn’t let you leave without explaining it further, so let’s get into it:
- Your sun sign is your ego, your core self, and it is what we most commonly refer to as your zodiac sign.
- Then, in your astrological chart is your moon sign, which relates to your private self, emotions and deepest desires.
- Your rising sign is sometimes called an ascendant, as it is the constellation that was ascending as you were born, and it is the 1st house in astrology. It represents the self that you put into the world, your outer layer, the first version of you that people meet.
Do Star Signs have Minor Arcana Associations?
The minor arcana is divided slightly differently from the major arcana; there are 56 cards and 4 suits: Cups, Wands, Pentacles, and Swords. Each suit represents an element, same with zodiac signs where each zodiac sign is ruled by an element.
The Minor Arcana is an incredibly powerful tool for understanding the symbolic associations between star signs and tarot cards; let's break it down:
- Air Signs - Suit of Swords
The suit of Swords is associated with the air element, which means truth and clarity of thought.
- Earth Signs - Suit of Pentacles
Pentacles (sometimes called coins) are associated with the earth element, representing material stability and abundance.
- Fire Signs - Suit of Wands
Fire signs get the suit of Wands, which represents ambition and energy.
- Water Signs - Suit of Cups
Lastly, Cups are associated with the water element, representing emotions and intuitiveness.
