Difference Between Astrology and Tarot Card Reading

Though astrology and tarot cards both are used for divination purposes, but these two are completely different from each other.

Astrology is a pseudoscience that predicts the future, people’s behavior based on the position and movements of stars, planets and Sun. While Tarot card reading is a method to predict the different possibilities of future, to understand the past and the present or to get the answers to our questions by reading some special cards known as Tarot cards. Astrology was developed mainly in India while tarot card reading was created in Italy. Astrology has a very old history while tarot card reading is new compared to astrology.

Astrology uses 12 zodiac signs for its prediction while tarot cards have a deck of 78 cards. Out of 78 cards, 22 of them are Major Arcana while the remaining 56 are known as Minor Arcana.

While astrology debates that it can predict the future by the position of stars, planets whereas tarot card reading doesn’t really say that the future can be predicted by it but it can be used to predict the different possibilities of the future based on the past and present.
