Tarot cards are another way of divining the future. The practice goes back to the Medieval Ages. The typical deck has 78 cards. 22 Major Arcana or Trumps and 56 Minor Arcana. The Minor Arcana has four suits and depending on the type of deck you use, it does correspond to our present day four suited playing card deck.

Twelve of the Major Arcana cards are correspond to a Zodiac Sign. The remaining Major Arcana cards have assignments to the Planets.

Many versions and variation on a theme type decks have been created in the last 30 years. For purposes of information, the correspondences here relate to most often the beginning tarot deck for anyone, The Rider-Waite Deck.

Interpretations of each of these trumps are largely left up to learned mediator of the seeker's question and can not be handed down as "rote" interpretations.

There are many good texts that pull all this information together when learning to read Tarot. We recommend The Easy Guide to Tarot by Marcia Masino as a start.

*Chiron,Planetoid between Uranus and Saturn, correspondence is assigned by the owners of Indigo Ray Astrology Inquiry. Chiron "the wounded healer" is new to astrology since 1992. We feel it is represented well by the Guardian/Devil card because, as with Saturn, there is a Chiron Return in one's lifetime around the 51st year. This is often in psychological terms the "mid-life crisis". It is our belief that Trump XV 's meaning does indeed fit the astrological challenging energy of this planetoid. The identification of the zodiac sign associated with this planetoid has yet to reach a concensus in the astrological community. Virgo-Sagittarius is suggested by Zane Stein.
*Chiron Virgo-Sagittarius The Guardian/Devil Trump XV
