Greek Dieties/Beings and Tarot Cards

Hello, everyone! I'm new to this subreddit and I have had my cards for about 1.5 yrs.

I'm very interested in starting to work with deities and beings from the ancient Greek culture. I've always felt very connected to it and curious/interested in worship/collaboration with Greek deities and spirits.

Over the past week I've been doing a lot of research about which deities are associated/correspond with which tarot cards. (I'm currently using a classic Rider Waite deck.) The problem is I've hit a wall with finding information about it.

Does anybody have additional research suggestions or can you tell me what cards you associate with which deities? Or if you don't have information/think I'm in the wrong place, can you direct me to a different subreddit or forum that might have answers?

Thank you so, so, so much in advance! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ”ฎ

Below I will make a list of what I've been able to find so far, and I'd be happy to put the resources I've used in the comments if anyone wants to see them. I'm totally open to discussion about the contents of the list and am really just trying to gather all the opinions and information I can on this. Please keep in mind this is a starting point and I've yet to add cards I find personally fitting; however, I plan to do so once I have a starting place. . . . Greek Dieties/Beings and Possible Associated Tarot Cards: I'm aware that a couple of these may not be strictly Greek, but I'm putting my whole list here in case I can get any tiny bit of help with any of them
