The Rider-Waite Tarot, Lesser Arcana
The I-Ching, Mayan days, and the Tarot are known as divination systems,
so there is a solvable link between them. A common language can
be seen through examination. Find the divine underwriter.
This is not a newfangled attempt to re-organize the tarot. It is
simply being correlated according to the precise alignments it has
with the I-Ching, the Mayan days, the Decans, and the inidividual
artists born during the specified periods. We are looking for a
match of 72 cards. The deck has 78 so the 6 cards that are added
or don't fit into the universal order are singled out first. The
I-Ching and the Mayan days do not use 0.
The 0 or Fool card is you before the birth or before the leap onto
a new path.
The 21 or universe card is the whole world and sky. The Center.
The four Pages could plug in as redundant of the four warning decans,
but do not plug in anywhere else. They are also, all four of similar
structure. They could be youthful aspects of the four elements.
There's the 6 that will remain unaddressed in this article.

The major arcana 1 -20 are the 20 days, and the first 20 hexagrams

The four Aces are the four elements. Left with 48.
The King, Queen and Knight cards are the 12 zodiac signs or houses.
Queens are fixed, Kings are cardinal, and Knights are mutable. Left
This leaves the 2 – 10's of each element to correlate and this will
show the 36 decans.
The 8,9,10's are the cardinal signs. The 5,6,7's are the fixed signs.
The 2,3,4's are the mutable signs.
Wands are Fire, Pentacles are Earth, Swords are Air, Cups are Water.
4 x 9 = 36.
To do it right, the 36 will be listed in order starting with Aries,
1- 8 in the earth quadrant, and paired with images from other systems
for calibration. This is part 1 of, a 5 part series that will walk
artistically through the 36 decans. 8 in 4 quadrants, then the four
