The official start of the autumnal season coincides with the start of Libra Season.
Libra is the cardinal sign of taking action when it comes to collaborating with others to create beauty, balance, and harmonious relationships.
Autumn is the time of year when the days and nights are of equal length and every day will get a little shorter until we reach Winter Solstice. I welcome the cool mornings and nights and savor the warm days of autumn. I also appreciate the trees changing colors and releasing their leaves as they prepare for Winter. The process of the trees dropping their leaves serves as a reminder that letting go is a natural part of life. This prepares us for when Scorpio comes around, more on that later.
This post is intended to give you an overview of the zodiac signs, element, and corresponding major arcana tarot cards associated with autumn. Each sign has six tarot cards directly associated with it. If you take a look at the astrology and tarot wheel you find will all find 78 tarot cards arranged around the zodiac, I wrote a three part series on it, read part one here.
Do you know which cards are associated with each zodiac sign? Do you know which are the cards that represent elemental and seasonal energy?
The Aces represent the Seasons and the Pages represent the elemental energy
The Aces represent the seasons and the Pages represent the elemental energy of the season. The Aces and the Pages sit outside of the Astrology and Tarot Wheel within the Solstices and Equinoxes.
The Ace of Cups is known as the The Power of Water.
In tarot, the Ace of Cups corresponds
to the energy of Autumn.
In tarot the element of water is represented by cups which symbolizes our imagination, emotions, spirituality and healing.
The Aces represent the potential of the suit. It contains the instructions for the development, growth, and progression of the entire cycle of the suit.
Water signs include:
Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
The Page of Cups is known as the Personification of Water. The page of cups connects the suit of cups to the realm of emotion by being adaptable and open to intuitive communication. They insert a sense of childlike enthusiasm and wonder filled with imaginative optimism to any situations that may arise.
Autumn Zodiac Signs include:
Justice embodies Libra in Tarot.
They are extroverted, communicative and skilled at solving problems, negotiating, and coming up with agile solutions for any situation. They rule the arts, take leadership roles, and initiate changes and forward movements with decisive action.
Scorpio is embodied by Death in Tarot.
Death is a card of transition suggesting release, change, and transformation. Occasionally Death is represented by a phoenix and its rebirth from its ashes represents conversion of energy instead of loss of energy. Death calls for release of old habits, patterns, and relationships.
Sagittarius is embodied by Temperance in Tarot. The sign of long-distance travel, higher education, and philosophy with a focus on the journey instead of the destination. Temperance depicts the alchemical process of blending and mixing distinct elements to discover what the combination may bring. It also symbolizes remaining grounded in reality (foot on ground) and in touch with emotions (foot in water). Representing calm and inner balance.
I'll go into more detail about the zodiac sign Libra in the upcoming New Moon in Libra blog post, coming up on October 3rd, 2021. You can also learn a lot more about Libra in the Libra New Moon Tarot and Astrology workbook, linked below.
In the meantime, I hope Libra's inspires you to bring beauty, fairness, and balance into your relationship with yourself and those around you.
