AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.

What kind of deck is it? There are many. Is there a box? If so, what does it say. If not, take a picture of one of the main cards, like The Fool and post the link here so we can help you to identify it.
Different decks have explainations to their artistry/symbolism in connection with the meaning of the tarot card itself. It helps to know what the images symbolize to aid you in remembering their meanings.
even though decks give slightly different explanations to the cards, the base meaning and symbolism is usually fairly the same, even if you cant find the ones that match your cards you can use a book for any deck. i have a pdf for the rider waite on my laptop. also you couls always go by your intuition and make your own meanings

I agree with Untold. It is easier to be able to match pictures with meanings. Its a way that helps people to learn and associate the cards with their 78 seperate detailed meanings.
To just memorize the 78 meanings without connecting it to the image of the card would make it very frustrating unless you have a superior memory. But most are visual learners, and relating to the images gives each card a personality. And to me, my 78 cards are 78 parts of a story. When I do a reading, each one gives the story of whatever I'm reading on.
I've had the same deck for over ten years, and honestly, I could stand to switch to another deck. I've connected the meanings to the pictures, not the names of the cards. I'm terrible with names in normal everyday life because I am very visual, and the tarot is no different for me.
In fact, I tell my five year old daughter stories with my tarot by shuffling them and dealing them out one by one. She calls them my "story cards". Little does she know, she's slowly learning the tarot herself by connecting personalities and events to certain cards. But if I began a story with different style of tarot, she would have no idea what the cards meant.
