Indeed, one of the association of Teth is staff/rod, and this is connected to the snake through the staff of moses that turns into a snake and by the letterform. The one to one correspondence depends on the placement of the fool. As an exercise I have examined correlations placing fool as both first and last and have found a good degree of correspondence between both. The degree of correspondence is better for some cards between one version and the other but overall I have a tendency to prefer Aleph-Fool, so glad for the balance of having someone else to show the correllations from Aleph-Magician.
