SUIT CORRESPONDENCES

The suits are usually linked in these ways:














* Wands and Swords can swap their correspondences in some decks, Wands becoming Air and Swords Fire.

** Try to consider active and passive in this way: communication can happen when, at the same time, someone speaks (active) and someone listens (passive) - all speaking or all listening does not communication make!  In the same way, active and passive suits are positive and negative in equal measure, not one or the other in themselves.
