Looks interesting, but I have a magical nitpick.

You're mapping the colors to the suits, and the zodiac board is mapping 
colors to the elements:

cups:green:earth, swords:red:fire, disks:blue:water, rods:yellow:air

I'd prefer to go with the traditional mapping between suits and
elements, as below - that way you're not penalizing or confusing players 
who are familiar with them, and if your players later get into Tarot, 
they'll have less to unlearn.

cups:blue:water, swords:yellow:air, disks:green:earth, rods:red:fire
