If you're interested in astrology, you may have considered adding the use of tarot cards into your daily routine. They've been around for centuries (since the 14th century, to be exact), and are now used by many to help guide their day. But what if we told you there's actually a way to use a specific tarot deck based on your zodiac sign to enhance your reading? Well, let astrologer Lisa Stardust explain.

The reason why you may want to consider using a particular tarot deck is because "it can help you harness the celestial power of your zodiac sign while choosing cards. And, it can align you with the spirits who magically represent your sign to bring you information," Stardust tells HelloGiggles. "Each tarot card represents a different planet, sign, or placement of a sign in a specific planet. Therefore, it's helpful to pick a tarot deck that vibes with your zodiac sign to reap the best energies out of the experience."

If this piques your interest, then you came to the right place. Below is a list of tarot decks you should use to enhance your energy reading, based on your zodiac sign.
