Dear Astrology Room
I have been reading tarots for about 8 years now and I just bought The Tarot Bible, I just saw on the news on MSN that they are changing the Zodiac and adding Ophiuchus. I wanted to know what you guys thought about this and will this change my readings? If so, What is the Major Arcana card that will represent this new zodiac the best? Also what other books do you recommend me to read about tarots?
Seriously, who is changing the zodiac? I don't think this constellation prank will change anything,
The astrology and the tarot we follow here, is all about the 'western zodiac' - which was divided into twelve equal slices of the 360 degrees of the ecliptic because that was a way of measuring the heavens and the apparent path of the sun aound the earth.
The constellations have nothing to do with the zodiac signs. Even if you wanted to include another twenty million constellations, they are irrelevent to western astrology. As for tarot, this corresponds to the zodiac, but is not dependent on it.
The whole point about mysticism is that we try to stick with those who saw, or recorded only what was necessary to them. No more no less. The tarot. reflected in the planets and the solar system as was known at the time of the ancients is one thing, but attempting to put it into any other context is crazy.
