Is there a way to match up the Gnostic Samael Tarot with the Tarot decks from other authors/traditions. The major arcana is easy to match up. Although the Minor arcana is complicated with the 4 suits of Pentacles, cups, swords and wands. These suits can be also given different names. Samael's minor arcana deck doesn't seem to be split up into these 4 suits?

My question is, is there a way to simply match up the minor arcana of traditional decks with Samael's deck? I understand that some decks such as Thoth come from black schools. Although sometimes when learning about astrology and tarot, the tarot cards of these different traditions are given and its difficult to sync the card up with Samaels deck as it seems it is not divided into the 4 suits?
Does anyone know about this?

0 The Fool
1 The Magician
2 The High Priestess
3 The Empress
4 The Emperor
5 The Hierophant
6 The Lovers
7 The Chariot
8 Justice† or Strength‡
9 The Hermit
10 Wheel of Fortune
11 Strength† or Justice‡
12 The Hanged Man
13 Death
14 Temperance
15 The Devil
16 The Tower
17 The Star
18 The Moon
19 The Sun
20 Judgement
21 The World


And then the 14 cards of the 4 suits (Pentacles, Cups, Swords & Wands)
