I agree.
There is much to be learned both from the analogy and from the difference between Tarot and Emblems.

Here is one more from Alciatus: Futile effort [dog bays at full moon] / 165
Interestingly, the image is identical to
http://www.emblems.arts.gla.ac.uk/french/emblem.php?id=FBEa022
but the text is different (it seems that Théodore de Bèze in 1580 has Christianized Alciato's Emblem).

I love the last one from Michael's site. Of course, to see Le Pendu outside of Tarot is a rare treat!! Do we have any idea who's chart that is? It reminds me of something I took a picture of at Oxford when I visited, at Christ Church.
http://www.tarotforum.net/attachment.php?attachmentid=17348

I had never seen such diagrams before. I am very ignorant about astrology! :)

The chart in Oxford is the horoscope of someone (possibly buried in the Christ Church).
I found a similar diagram for Robert Burton, included in his work "Anatomy of Melancholy"
The charts contain the date, hour and coordinates of birth.

PS: Thanks to Robert for providing a linkable copy of the Burton chart.
