Personal Tarot Cards

The purpose of this exercise is to calculate a person's personal tarot card, yearly tarot card, and growth tarot card.

To calculate birth number:

Add month, date, and year components of the birth date separately. Reduce each down to number between 1 and 9. Do not reduce if result is 11, 22, 33 or 44. Add reduced numbers together. If sum is more than 22, reduce it to a number between 1 and 22.

Examples:

Birthdate: 6/20/1965

birth number = (6) + (2 + 0) + (1 + 9 + 6 + 5)

= (6) +(2) + (21)

= (6) + (2) +( 2 + 1)

= (6) + (2) + (3) = 11

Birthdate: 12/25/1966

birth number = (1 + 2) + (2 + 5) + (1 + 9 + 6 + 6)

= (3) + (7) + (22) = 32 => 3 + 2 = 5


Determination of Tarot Personal Card(s):

The birth number will be between 1 and 22. Find the corresponding number in figure 1. A birth number can have up to three associated personal tarot cards. For example:

1) birth number = 2; personal tarot card is The High Priestess

2) birth number = 11; personal tarot cards are The High Priestess, and Justice

3) birth number = 20; personal tarot cards are The High Priestess, Justice, and Judgment

The larger the value of the birth number, the more complex the associated personal tarot cards are.

An additional personal tarot card is added corresponding to the zodiac sign that the person was born under. Figure 2 show the tarot cards associated with each zodiac sign.

Determination of Yearly Tarot Card

The year number is calculated by taking the month and date of birth, and adding them to the number of a given year. The resulting number is reduced to a value between 1 and 22. For example:

For a person born 12/25/1966, their yearly card of 1997 would be:

12/25/1997 = (1 + 3) + (2 + 5) + (1 + 9 + 9 + 7)

= (4) + (7) + (26)

= (4) + (7) + (2 + 6)

= (4) + (7) + (8) = 19

The yearly number is looked up in figure 1. In our example, the yearly tarot card would be The Sun. For the yearly tarot card, only the card assigned to the number is considered.

Determination of Growth Tarot Card:

The major arcana of the tarot is a cycle of 22 states of being. The growth card shows where a person is in the cycle, and how many times the cycle has been previously repeated. To calculate the growth card, subtract the closest multiple of 22 from a birthday. The resulting number will be between 1 and 22.

examples:

1) Age 18: growth card = 18 - 0 * 22 = 18 (Ages 1 - 22)

2) Age 32: growth card = 32 - 1 * 22 = 10 (Ages 23 - 44)

3) Age 50 growth card = 50 - 2 * 22 = 6 (Ages 45 - 66)

4) Age 70 growth card = 70 - 3 * 22 = 4 (Ages 67 - 88)

If one feels that The Fool (card 22) is not appropriately placed in position 22, the growth card can be determined with cycles of 21.

Some Thoughts:

There is a school of thought that states that the Magician, and possibly The Fool, are innate states for all beings. That is, these cards are with us all. The raw power and potential of The Magician, and the innocence of The Fool are with everybody’s reach.

The ramification of this statement is twofold. The first is that birthnumbers equal to 10 or 19 only have Wheel of Fortune and Wheel of Fortune/The Sun as their personal tarot cards respectively. The Magician is excluded. The second is that the cycle of 22 cards is reduced to a cycle of 21 with the exclusion of The Fool as a state of being. If a person has their birth number equaling 22, it would reduce down to 4.
