Both tarot and astrology can be used to help individuals learn more about themselves. In fact, there are certain zodiac signs that are connected to specific tarot cards which genuinely helps in offering varied perspectives about circumstances occurring in our lives. The following is an overview of the astrological sign Cancer and its personal tarot cards in the major and minor arcana.
The Major Arcana
The Chariot tarot card is all about achieving goals by overcoming obstacles and challenges. The best way to do this is by getting control over yourself and your surroundings. When looking closely at this particular tarot card, we see an individual that is attempting to control two sphinxes that are moving in opposite directions. The energy of this card encourages us to learn how to take control of a situation and have the confidence to know that we can achieve anything that we set our minds to. There will be a requirement to harness our strength in order to push through any obstacles that may be in our path. Gathering opposing energies internally and externally is often required for us to get to a point where we feel that we can be productive and achieve the things that we desire. In order to gather your energies together to achieve a goal, determination and a strong focus are needed. While on the path to achieving our goals, they’re often changes, delays, and detours that can happen. However, we must be willing to keep moving forward no matter what is thrown in our path, and we must be willing to navigate around all of the internal as well as the external things that could push us off our path to success. Taking the time to create a structured plan for how you want to achieve goals is highly recommended with the energy of The Chariot. As long as you stay committed to your path and put all of your effort and determination into achieving your aims, you will succeed.

Three of Cups
Second Decan: July 1-July 10; Rulership: Pluto
Under this decan, individuals are influenced by Scorpio energy. They can be more introverted/inner-directed and emotionally intense as a result of the Pluto/Scorpio influence.
The Three of Cups is usually considered a card of celebration or reunions. It often represents happy occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, graduations, and other types of celebratory events. This is a very positive card that indicates uplifting energy that is experienced by a group. Also, this energy is reminiscent of someone returning to our lives after being away for a while, so there is happiness associated with reconnecting with that individual.

Four of Cups
Third Decan: July 11-July 22; Rulership: Neptune
Under this decan, individuals are influenced by Pisces energy. They can be more spiritual and creative as a result of the Neptunian influence.
In general, the Four of Cups represent a certain level of disillusionment as a result of regrets, depression, negativity, or a missed opportunity. This energy showcases a young man sitting with three cups in front of him while there is a fourth cup being offered from the sky or Spirit. However, the young man does not see the fourth cup because he is busy looking at the three cups in front of him. This can be an indicator that we are so focused on what we don’t have that we don’t see other options or opportunities. There could also be a feeling that what one has is not enough. This energy reminds us to be mindful of the opportunities that we have before us as there is a propensity to limit ourselves through negative emotions and regrets. In many ways, stuck patterns are limiting the ability to live life to the fullest. Instead of focusing on what was lost, it is best to be grateful for what we currently have. This energy is also indicative of being caught up in a daydream and/or the imagination.
