Richard, the member who made it, made an improved diagram based on the one Robert Wang used in his book.
I'm not entirely sure, but it seems the supertarot chart runs afoul of the"What's a King and what's a Knight?" dichotomy (unless it was intentional). My Golden Dawn material and the Book of Thoth place the King of Wands (Crowley's Knight) at the Scorpio-Sagittarius transition, and the Knight of Wands (Crowley's Prince) straddling the Cancer-Leo line. The chart has the Knight at Sagittarius and the King at Leo; I know that some people think the Kings should be fixed and the Knights mutable, but if the author of the chart was basing it on the Thoth deck, why not use Knight (King) and Prince (Knight) for the titles? I just created my own table (before I saw this one) using Richard's model, and added columns for the Ace/Princess and Major Arcana correspondences.

as an exercise in learning the dates i made a new tarot sub-calendar on my ipad and put all the courts, the 12 astrological majors and all the decanate minors in as events. this is what it looks like!

it was a fun exercise and i find it very helpful, you can practise by choosing any day in the year and immediately you have all the three associated cards at a glance with a visual of when they kick in and how long they last... and you can switch the sub-calendar off and you're back to your daily life lol. i also have all my friends birthdays in my calendar which makes it so easy to quickly locate their cards.
