Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 4: The tarot is an independent symbolic system. It has much in common with the symbolism of astrology, alchemy, Kabbalah, and so on, but you dont need to know these other systems to make use of the cards. As Arthur E. Waite noted, ‘True tarot is symbolism; it speaks no other language and offers no other signs.’ 5 That said, there are certain basic symbols that appear commonly in most modern tarot decks. These include the symbolism of numbers and the use of the four classical elements: Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. In addition, certain decks are grounded in the Kabbalah or astrology, for example, and they are dedicated to devotees of these esoteric disciplines. When deciding on a deck to use, it is useful to become familiar with the symbolism the artist has employed in illustrating the cards.

Complete Book of Tarot: Mary Greer would call the Moon Mother Teresas ‘personality card’ and its further reduction to 9 (1 + 8), her ‘soul card.’ If the sum of the birth digits happens to be a number between 1 to 9, then the personality and soul cards are the same.
