Anime which has and uses Tarot : visions of Escaflowne

Having said much about tarot and about astrology, i would like to introduce an anime which i have liked alot. It is the vision of escaflowne.

The series focuses on the heroine, Hitomi Kanzaki, and her adventures after she is transported to the world of Gaea, a mysterious planet where she can see Earth and its moon in the sky. On Gaea, Earth is known as the Mystic Moon or "Phantom Moon" (幻の月, Maboroshii no tsuki?). Hitomi's latent psychic powers are enhanced on Gaea and she quickly becomes embroiled in the conflicts between the Zaibach Empire and the several peaceful countries that surround it. The conflicts are brought about by the Zaibach Empire's quest to revive the legendary power from the ancient city of Atlantis. As the series progresses, many of the characters' pasts and motivations, as well as the history of Atlantis and the true nature of the planet Gaea, are revealed.

In the series, the main charactrer Hitomi displayed her tarot reading skills and at the start of each episode there is a tarot card being flashed. this tarot card would set the feel of the show.

For instance in episod 11,

11 Prophecy of Death Tarot: Il Diavolo or the devil.

Suspicion of treachery falls on Hitomi and the rest of the party, and chameleon-like Zaibach operator Zongi (disguised as a Freid Praktu high priest) is sent to pry open her mind. During the ordeal, Hitomi reveals her origins from the Mystic Moon, but visions of Zongi's own past intervenes -- as well as a prophesy of death that sends Hitomi into a deathlike trance ....

The devil in this episode is the zongi chameleon like shapeshifter.....

Hope you enjoy this nice anime as i do....
