The Major Arcana:
The Major Arcana of the tarot are all of those cards with big, fancy titles. The Emperor, Death, The Tower, the Sun, Temperance, etc; all fall into the same category. There are 22 Major Arcana cards, and each one corresponds either to an element, a planet, or a Zodiac sing.
It will be the Zodiac sing that we will pay particularly close attention to, at first. My sign, for example is Pisces, which corresponds with the Major Arcana card entitled – The Moon.
For the first card corresponding to your birthday, simply check out this list. Aries – the Emperor, Taurus – Hierophant, Gemini – The Lovers, Cancer – The Chariot, Leo – Strength, Virgo – The Hermit, Libra – Justice, Scorpio – Death, Sagittarius – Temperance, Capricorn – The Devil, Aquarius – The Star, Pisces-The Moon.
The Minor Arcana:
All of the cards which are assigned numbers and objects, Such as the 4 of Pentacles or the 6 of Coup’s, fall beneath the banner of The Minor Arcana. Occultists and astrologers will regularly reference the influence of the four elements — .fire, water, air, and earth.
As you may have noticed, there are four different suits found in The Minor Arcana. As such, they correspond to the four elements as follows: Fire – Wands, Water – Cups, Air – Swords, Earth- Pentacles, (Known as Disks or Coins in certain tarot decks).
