I do think the Zodiacs are ripe grounds for interpretation. This might be a weird thought, but I could see a deck like this used for significators for readings done with other decks.
The tip of her staff has a dog. Lol I made them all "people cards" so that might work for your significator idea, though personally, I have yet to try doing a reading using two different decks.

I'm still wondering how zodiac signs will read in a reading. I'm toying with the idea that it has personality elaborations like when some people talk of tarot and go, "oh but the Magician also has this sly, charlatan side to him.", and incorporate this into a reading. Like, what if you get Virgo in the Strength position in a SWOT analysis spread - would it mean the querent is helpful, organized, or it if is in the Weakness position, s/he's a perfectionist to a fault? Just really thinking out loud (typing out, well, not so loud).

Some samples. I scanned the line drawings directly. Apologies for the drafting marks! The Male Capricorn is an example of one of the images which have Second Empire elements in them. Female Aquarius and Female Libra lean towards Art Deco more.

Thanks. Know of any basic astrology resources? Like ones that list the personalities of each sign? I might begin elaborating card meanings from there.

These are STUNNING. As a female dragon myself, I could certainly see using that as a significator... Or just as a deck itself!

So I tried collecting write ups on traits and personalities of the signs and then attempted to convert these traits and personalities into more... cartomancy-friendly meanings (e.g. being obsessive compulsive into either a person with OCD or a situatiom which will require a keen attention to detail and a strict adherence to rules and order). It was quite a challenging experience. Lol

Anyway, apparently I also created a sample mock up for my website which features the female Taurus and snake cards. I have attached it to this post as well.

That was actually one of my favorite illustrations in the series.
