As Rota Taro deals very intimately with interconnections of Tarot and astrology, I will give you here an overview of the astrological Signs and their corresponding Trumps (Arcana) of the Tarot.

By the way, I might mention that I do not adhere absolutely to any classical Tarot Deck. I designed one for myself which IMHO fits the 'Steps of the Rainbow Path' better than any of the classical systems, although I cannot deny strong influences by Arthur Waite, Rachel Pollack and Barbara Walker. In brackets I put down some of the alternative names of the Arcana which are used.

The links show the already drawn cards.
