A question about the 4 suits and their associations

bridscloset:

The 4 suits in the tarot have elemental associations. These are Earth, Air, Fire and Water. What suits are associated with these elementals? What is associated with the suit of cups? Pentacles? Swords and Wands? Why? I ask because there is a split in the “Tarot” World in regards to these associations. What matters is why your associations work for you!

I see it pretty strictly as Swords = Air, Wands = Fire, Cups = Water and Pentacles = Earth. To me, these correlations just make perfect sense. I’m curious now about the split in the tarot community you mentioned as I wasn’t aware there was so much variation on this topic.
