Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Astrology: Assertive and warlike Mars (dignified) in the first decan of watery Scorpio, realm of the Waite King/Thoth Prince of Cups (Air of Water) and Death (Scorpio). Mars is linked to the Tower.
Creative Tarot: Then there are those who respond not to the synchronicity but to the randomness itself. The meaningless part of it. The twentieth-century avant-garde composer John Cage provides perhaps the best example/way to explain this part of it, even though he chose the I Ching over the tarot to help him compose his projects, the most famous of these being his Music of Changes. The ancient Chinese text, said to date as far back as the tenth century BC, is similar to the tarot, except that it uses tiles or coins rather than tarot cards, and a large book that helps you interpret the patterns formed when you conduct a reading. Cage would ask a question about the composition he was working on, cast the tiles, and then use the answers found in the book to make changes to the music.
Complete Book of Tarot: I will revere those who taught me the art of tarot; and I will impart all my acquirement, instructions, and whatever I know to all my pupils, who likewise shall bind and tie themselves by a professional oath.

Tarot Triumphs: Once you have become familiar with the basic ways of interpreting the cards (in this case, the keynotes just given), you can start to see how they work in combination. This is the main basis of Tarot divination, and it takes pride of place in the Fool’s Mirror layout. I hope this will become clearer over the next few chapters, where the relating of the cards to each other gives the reading its individuality and relevance.
