All the numbered minors have a planet and sign combo...i.e. 2 Swords=Moon in Libra, 9 of Pentacles=Venus in Virgo, ect.
All the court cards have astrological signs attached to them (Pages have elements) altho it's up for debate. Like King of Swords=Libra, ect. Right?
Then in another thread it showed Magician-Wheel could show timing as well. New Moon-'within the year'. I think Thirteen posted that but I'm not sure. And then aces all have a season...like Cups=Spring.
So how many cards does that leave? 12!! 0 Fool, then 11 Justice-21 World. Could those cards (0, 11-21) represent the monthes of the year concerning timing. And if they did, would Janruary be Fool or Justice??
Any ideas, thoughts, help??

The timing of those first cards (Magician, etc.--Fool included, I believe) is rather vague. The next full moon or Winter Solstice. Check Firemaiden's excellent reference lists in the stickies topping this section to find the list.
If you want specific months, you can always use the Zodiac signs. Although they straddle two months, they can still work. For example, the Emperor = Aries. Aries is from Spring Equinox (March 21) through mid-April. Onto the Hierophant as Taurus and the Lovers as Gemini, etc.
