I'm wondering if planets might have associations with certain elements (fire/water/air/earth). I've been trying to search about this on Google but have been unable to find anything.

In the Thoth Tarot deck (only one I'm really that familiar with), many of the cards are associated with eithre planets, zodiac signs, or both. I started to notice a theme between the elements associated with the cards and the planets with which they are associated. Is there some truth in this?

I've noticed the following associations:

Sun
Element: fire
Card: sun

Moon
element: water
Card: High Priestess

Mercury
Element: air
Card: Magus

Venus
Element: earth
Card: Empress

Mars
Element: fire
Card: Tower

Jupiter
Element: air
Card: Fortune

Saturn
Element: earth
Card: Universe

Uranus
Element: air
Card: Fool

Neptune
Element: water
Card: Hanged Man

Pluto
Element: fire
Card: Aeon

There are elements that go with the planets. Take the planet and find the sign that it rules, for example, Saturn rules Capricorn, Capricorn is an Earth sign. And as you see, that matches your list.
Sun- Leo - Fire.....etc

Great, glad I just didn't come up with some association that isn't there. :) Thanks for the confirmation.
