The Order of the Golden Dawn allocated Aces to the four elements and the rest of the Minor Trumps to decans of the zodiac. A decan is a ten degree division of a zodiacal sign. Thus each sign has three decans or 30°. All twelve signs total 36 decans. In assigning ruling planets to the decans, the Golden Dawn used the method of Ptolemy. Modern astrology frequently uses a much less elaborate method. Both are given here. In the Thoth (Crowley) Deck, this information is marked on the cards themselves for Two through Ten. In the Rider or Celtic (Waite) Deck, these factors are sometimes translated into corresponding Major Trumps and used as a basis for the design; e.g. the Two of Wands has Aries ruled by Mars. This is the Emperor (Aries) and the Tower (Mars), so the card shows an Emperor standing on a Tower. The Key Expression used by the Order of the Golden Dawn usually derives from this Astrological correspondence.
