Gilded Tarot Court Cards Astrologically

I've been trying to figure out what courts belong to which astrological sign without blindly assigning Mutable/Fixed/Cardinal.

here is what I have found out thus far.

King of Cups has a orange planet with rings, probably Saturn
King of Swords has a blue planet with rings...perhaps Uranus/Neptune
King of Wands has undoubtedly the Sun (shown in The Lovers aswell)
King of Pentacles has a pale-orange look,perhaps Venus?

Now, Saturn is Capricorn, a Cardinal Sign
Uranus is Fixed (Aquarius) and Neptune is Mutable (Pisces)
Sun is Fixed (Leo)
Venus is Fixed(Taurus)

So I am still confused. Two (possibly 3) of the cards are Fixed while one is Cardinal. What does this say about Cups as a King? And who has most of the Cardinals? perhaps the queens, since they seem more grounded while the kings are floating in the air? Plus both of mercury's planets are Mutable, so how does that play in?

I would love to see what other people have to say, as I would love to know how to astrologically assign these cards. (Search function wasnt working at time of post so if there is one,please direct me there)

Edit: Neptune and Uranus both have rings, and the "gas" planets are known for having their rings (sun is made of gas, despite no rings) so Venus is the only one who doesn't have rings, and is a solid, "earthly" planet, which makes a good bet for the King of Pentacles being a Fixed Taurus. His throne also looks to be the closest to the ground. Maybe the other kings are "full of hot air? )

Edit 2: Maybe he never really assigned them and just put planets in the background based on color of the planet alone? In this case, how would we assign them?
