Hi, could someone tell me what cards correspond to which of the kabalistic four worlds please, ie earth/air/fire/water elements in a traditional deck.

Thanks

This question is a bit like asking which notes of a symphony correspond to the notes of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star."

The Eternal Tarot reflects the rich, subtle symbolism of the internal worlds, which can never be well-reflected in the four limited symbols of the "traditional" decks. Why rely on a hobbled, faulty, inaccurate and limited "tradition," when you have access to something with far more penetrating power?

I was under the impression (I don't know how really) that there were correspondences between the cards and the four worlds. I guess I was mistaken.

The cards do correspond to the four worlds. For instance, observe the first card:
https://gnosticteachings.org/images/stories/tarot/tarot-1.jpg

...the upper third of each card corresponds to Atziluth, the world of archetypes.
The middle third of each card corresponds to Briah, the world of creation.
The lower third of each card corresponds to Yetzirah, the world of formation.
Finally, the card itself corresponds to Assiah, the world of matter. - Eternal Tarot pg 23
