Did you know that you are a Tarot card according to your birthdate, like the 26th card of the Major Arcana, the Book of Thoth, called “The Star” in English?
Did you know that your birthdate is an important factor when choosing a tarot card? We are sure you don’t, but it is a fact that you are more likely to end up with a card related to your birthday if you were born during a certain time period. Although we won’t go into detail how that works, we will explain a few things that you should keep in mind before choosing your tarot card.
Did you know that the tarot card corresponds to your birth date?
What most people don’t know is that each of us has a tarot card that corresponds to our birth date (and another for each year), and it tells us a lot about our life path.
The Tarot is a deck of 78 cards whose history goes back more than six centuries. It shows us a path to personal enlightenment that can be applied to daily life in a profound yet simple way.
Knowing your Tarot natal chart (and your annual chart) will help you understand your personal cycles and better prepare for and overcome challenges.
How to calculate your tarot birth chart
You must add all the algarisms of your date of birth. For example:
If you’re on 7th. February 1980…
02 + 07 + 1980 = 2 + 7+ 1 + 9 + 8 = 27
If the total goes from 1 to 22, keep that number. If the number is higher, the algarisms should be added again…..
27 = 2 + 7 = 9 = hermit
How to calculate the tarot card of the year
For example, take the day and month of your birth and the year you want to calculate: 7. February 2021.
02 + 07 + 2021 = 2 + 7 + 2 + 1 = 14 = Abstention
(If the sum is between 1 and 22, keep this number. If the number is higher, add the algarisms, as for the birth chart).
Now that you have established your birth chart and annual card, how do you use them? Below you can read a brief description of the wisdom of each card, but you can also find them online, download images to look at and think about, meditate on them, and explore what they can teach you about yourself, your life path, and how to better deal with your challenges. You can also calculate all the annual horoscopes for each year since your birth and, by observing the correlation between the horoscope and what you have experienced in those years, better understand these horoscopes and your own cycles and capabilities.
1 – Mage – initiative and will, the ability to make things happen, even from nowhere.
2 – High Priestess – Intuition and introspection, the need to look within to find all the power and answers you need.
3 – Empress – The power and abundance of nature, the desire to live in the present with all its riches and possibilities.
4 – Emperor – Stability and control, the desire to see things according to one’s own intentions and will.
5 – Hierophant – attachment to established society, need to conform in order to grow and prosper within established society.
6 – Lovers – passion and choice, the tendency to constantly change and make choices between what the heart needs and what the road needs.
7 – Chariot – the drive and progress, the desire for more, that always pushes you forward and never lets you rest.
8 – Strength – Self-control and instinct, you must find the strength to own your impulses, not fight them, but make an alliance with them.
9 – Hermit – Solitude and wisdom, your own silence will light the way forward if you allow yourself to listen.
10 – Wheel of Fortune – Cycles and changes, you can learn from your own changes and rhythms and not only get answers but also paths to your desires.
11 – Justice – Balance and accountability, life is always trying to correct its imbalances and order things in its chaotic way. How can you use it and dance on it?
12 – The Hanged Man – Shifting our gaze, getting a different perspective, is often exactly what we need to better understand the best way forward.
13 – Death – Transformation and Change – Every time we think we have understood the rules of the game, the game itself changes. It is our ability to adapt and transform that keeps us alive when we let something that no longer serves us die.
14 – Moderation – Finding the Middle Way As we are constantly torn between conflicting views, choices and paths, we must find ways to choose or create a middle ground or third way that brings together our most pressing needs.
15 – The devil is domination and lust, our need to enjoy life and its pleasures should not be our master but our friend. Allow yourself to enjoy the richness of life, but don’t let it control you.
16 – Reversal – destruction and renewal, from time to time we need to turn things around to discover that this is really the right path for us.
17 – Star – Hope and Blessing, after the storm has died down, there is a breath of freshness and possibility that permeates everything and makes us see and believe that we can do anything and be anything we want. And it’s true.
18 – Moon – Subconsciously and instinctively we like to believe that we are fully in control of our actions, but much of what we do is motivated by processes of which we are not aware. With this knowledge you can become aware of the processes that take place beneath the surface.
19 – Sun – Truth and awareness, when we understand ourselves and life better, the light seems to sweep all shadows from our minds and paths. Use these moments for your own growth.
20 – Judgment – Awakening and self-discovery, you are called to follow your own path, and if you do not answer the call, you lose the window of opportunity for your own evolution. Dare to lead yourself.
21 – Peace – Enlightenment and Liberation, when you complete your training at any level, the energy in it is released and you can use it to shape your life the way you want. Use it wisely and benefit from the knowledge gained from your previous experiences.
0 and 22 – Fool – Adventure and aspiration, if you are afraid to take a leap because you might fall, consider what you would do if you were flying? This energy gives you the opportunity to go both ways and let go of what no longer serves you.
