Complete Book of Tarot: Late in the nineteenth century, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn incorporated astrology into its understanding of tarot symbolism. Arthur Edward Waite, a member of the Golden Dawn, instructed artist Pamela Colman Smith (‘Pixie’) to illustrate the numbered or pip cards of the Waite-Smith deck according to her understanding of the influence of the signs of the zodiac on each of the four suits of the tarot. Thus, anyone who uses the Waite-Smith deck is relying on astrological symbolism, often without being aware of it.

Due to the widespread influence of the Golden Dawn, astrology has played a major role in defining the meanings of todays tarot cards.
