Astrological Correspondences of
The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

Astrology has always had a symbiotic relationship with tarot, take the Sun, Moon and Star cards, for example. While tarot and astrology may at first seem very different systems. In truth, there are lots of similarities and connections between the two. It was the French occultist Jean-Baptiste Alliette who is sited as being one of the first to assign each of the Major Arcana cards with astrological signs or planets, but it was the English magical order known as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, who assigned all of the 78 cards with astrological correspondences. It is this system, the most popular and wildly used method that I’ve documented below.

Notice: This is not intended to be a definitive, historical presentation of ‘The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawns’ teachings, but as faithful and accurate as possible. It is my aim to provide a free resource for individuals who are wishing to study and become acquainted with the Astrological and Elemental correspondences of the Golden Dawn. Most of the information was researched from MacGregor Mathers and Harriet Felkin Book T, The Book of Thoth by Aleister Crowley, The Pictorial Key to the Tarot Book by Arthur Edward Waite, to mention just a few. As you may or not be aware, there is a lot of debate and disagreement with the correspondences with the different systems. As with all aspects of tarot, I would strongly encourage you to do your own research and come to your own conclusion and understanding. The information outlined upon this page is simply my interpretations. While the majority of esotericists and occultists would broadly agree with these interpretations, there are others who wouldn’t.     

Text marked with an asterisk (*) is additional information not directly attributed to The Golden Dawn, but has become part of the evolution and reading of the tarot, or information that I feel will enhance your study or deepen your understanding. As this is a complex page to build and compile, unfortunately, mistakes can happen. If you notice a typo or error, then please feel free to let me know by clicking here. (contact me) Kind regards, bright blessings, David.
