The Astrological Layout
The Astrological Tarot Layout is based on houses of astrology. This complicated layout takes several steps to understand.
The first step is to interpret the card for each individual position in the layout.
The second step involves further examination of the main axes. Positions 1 & 7 show the relationship theme, #1 representing you, #7 your partner. Positions 4 & 10 indicate motion. #4 shows where you are, and #10 shows what you are moving towards.
The third step involves breaking down the chart into triads according to their house elements.
Positions 1, 5, & 9 represent the Fire triad, which shows about temperment and personal development.
Positions 2, 6, & 10 represent the Earth triad, which is concerned with materialism, money, and work.
Positions 3, 7, & 11 represent the Air triad, which has to do with thoughts, ideas, and connections with other people.
Positions 4, 8, & 12 represent the Water triad, which is the realm of emotions, moods, intuition, and yearnings.
Further, you may connect other patterns and correlations between certain numbers. Certain numbers such as the set of 5, 7, & 8 often speak about a particular theme.

The mind is clear like a bright lamp that dispells darkness. You are at a stage in which the potential for personal growth is almost unlimited. Follow your inner light, and you will know what is right for you and those around you. Allow no obstacles or faults to hinder your actions.
Like inheriting a fortune, there is great prosperity, wealth, and well-being. This sign is as money falling from the sky directly into your hands. You have been steady in the long run, and your prospects for success are very bright. Friends will increase, and even enemies will fall under your control. If someone is ill, they will recover in time, the cause being that they have displeased a certain deity.
3: Mundane Life
The eye of transcendental wisdom shall open. The advice of a good friend should be followed, and this will prove very beneficial. Skrying rituals will be fruitful.
Generally a good sign, this indicates that malignant spirits have left you. Your ails will subside, and your plans will be fulfilled.
5: Fun Things
You will hear good news from a friend. Fame and fortune shall increase should you accept their help. Your actions will be successful if you allow yourself to hear their words.
This sign indicates great stability, and that projects already begun will meet with success. Generally a favorable sign, the only problem may be a delay in travel, as this is a sign of staying in one place.
Also known as "the wish-fulfilling cow," this sign indicates an increase in happiness. It may appear that an evil spirit has recently attacked you, but this is not the case. You should be content to know that this setback was necessary, as it is sometimes necessary to take a step back in order to take 2 steps forward.
8: Hidden Aspects
This is a bad omen of instability and obstruction. There is danger from enemies and evil spirits. A red article or triangular object you have acquired may be causing you harm. A person in the western direction may be responsible. Obstacles are blocking your success. Only evil activities have good prospects for success.
9: Higher Views
If you work steadily and carefully, the results will be good. Avoid fickle thoughts which dissipate mental energies. Travel and giving will be beneficial. Offerings to natural spirits such as ancestors and trees is beneficial, and performance of spiritual practices will have a hightened effect if not performed at their regular location.
It is best to postpone your efforts to achieve them later, as they will not be successful yet. There will be great obstacles and destruction if you press forward. This would appear to be a negative sign, however works of destruction will have much success. Now may be a good time to organize your plans and develop new strategies for managing the tasks before you.
Wealth increases like a river feeding the ocean. This sign is especially good for works involving water, however marriage or rituals involving fire are not favored.
12: Hopes and Fears
This sign indicates a growth in popularity. There may be fighting, but you will be victorious. Fame may yield fast wealth or fortune in smaller scattered pieces. If dispelling ghosts, you will be successful if you offer small gifts such as tea.
