Hi everybody,

I started with astrology, the tarot came a few years later. Right now, I really like to combine the two.

A powerful method to me is to create a spread for a birth chart with planets (instead of houses, which seems the most popular spread? not sure..).

Recently i've also started working with something else: using the symbolic meanings of the astrological aspects (harmonic astrology) and assigning them to the numbers of a regular playing card deck, like this:

Ace = oneness (conjunction)
2 = twoness (opposition)
3 = threeness (trine)
4 = fourness (square)
5 = fiveness (quintile)
6 = sixness (sextile)
7 = sevenness (septile)
8 = eightness (semi-square)
9 = nineness (novile)
10 = tenness (decile)
Jack = elevenness
Queen = twelveness
King = thirteenness

If you want to try it, you can use your own keywords you have for these astrological aspects, or you can use these that i find useful myself (really a personal thing).

1. Wholeness, union, blend, singlemindedness, focus
2. Separation, duality, duel, opposites, yin~yang, pair
3. Flux, smooth co-operation, natural talent, pleasure, comfort
4. 2x2, motivation, challenge, urgency, struggle, tension, stress
5. Structuring, forming, arranging, creative activity
6. 2x3, enjoying the battle, requiring some effort, expressive
7. Inspiration, serendipity, creative growth at a price
8. 2x4, motivating resistance, subtle tension
9. 3x3, joy, peace, the fruit of the tree, soul mate (Jyotish)
10. 2x5, creative ability, untapped talent
11. Resilience, persistence, impatience, instability (Uranian)
12. 4x3, requiring effort, co-operating at a distance
13. Rootlessness, restlessness, breaking away, risk-taking

I also use the 'classic' meanings of the elements. Example: in a question about health, 4 of spades (swords) means mental stress, 4 of hearts (cups) means someone is not doing well emotionally, and 4 of diamonds (coins) points to physical problems.

Here's a blogpost i wrote about this stuff http://www.dubbhism.org/2019/06/astrological-tarot-spreads.html

This would be okay for Personal Readings, if you also want to post it there.
