31 Days of Tarot 2019: Day 13

Posted on: January 26, 2019

Prompt: From the Major Arcana cards, what card correlates to your sun, moon, and rising sign. How has that resonated or played out in your life?

Since I know little of astrology, aside from my basic Zodiac sign, which is the rising sign, I looked things up. I found the following for me:

  • Zodiac/Rising Sign: Capricorn. The Devil-XV.
  • Sun Sign: Leo. Strength- VIII or XI (depending on what Tarot deck/system you use).
  • Moon Sign: Aquarius. The Star- XVII.


For my rising sign I would have expected The Hermit- IX given my strong introverted nature. The Devil- XV seems interesting to me. Often in my life, I’ve done my best to avoid bad temptations, especially during my youth. In adult years, and in part due to studying Tarot, I see the Devil more as knowing when to yield to temptation, a little here or there can be good. The card is also a reminder that sometimes the binds we fret over are of our own making so as we choose to be bound we can choose to remove such binds.

Leo, my sun sign, happens to be my mother’s Zodiac sign too. If anyone was inspiring to me and represented Strength it was my mom. In her battle with lupus she never let the disease dictate her life nor stop her from living a good life. It remains an inspiration to me.

Aquarius for my moon sign with The Star- XVII. I’ve always had a healthy imagination. Intuition is something I feel I have, however, I have not considered it much until recently. Mom I am sure had it as she at times mentioned dreams of things that often came to pass. She was very casual about it. Anyhow this resonates with my introspective nature.
