Thank you!  A very useful comment.

Of course, I haven't actually worked out anything that requires the
colours to be colours or the elements to be elements, so currently a
hand made board might as well just have the Tarot suits on directly, but
I hope to come up with something that makes the Zodiac itself useful.

Thanks again,
