Just a bit of Tarot Court Card fun to kick us off into the New Year!
Lots of tarot buzz on Social Media about THEMES for the year, as inspired by the Major Arcana card that your personal year correlates to.
To find our what your personal year card is, take your day and month of birth and and add to 37 (ie 20+17, the incoming year).
Here’s an example: mine!
Since there is no Major Arcana card numbered 58 (hey, we’re not using Minchiates here, people!), these digits need to be further reduced by adding them together, giving us a total of 13.
My theme for the year will be inspired by Death *pauses dramatically and sweeps cloak over shoulder*
But since my blog focuses on the Court Cards, I thought we’d have a little fun and extend the exercise further:
Instead of adding up your digits, above, until they total 22 or under (ie the number of Major Arcana cards we have), total them up until they are 17 or less.
I numbered the Page of Pentacles, the lowliest of the lowly, as 1. But your numbers will not reduce to one, so I’ve also accorded him 17 (because he’s also VERY special, as well as being the lowliest of the lowly).
So, if you add up to 17, then you are having a Page of Pents year 🙂
Taking my example again, this means that my 13 – Death year – becomes further compounded by Court Card 13…. which is The King of Pentacles. Hopefully, but doing a lot of judicious pruning and scything down of things that are no longer good for me, I will maybe start to become more productive and earn a bit more in the way of shekels.
Have a try yourself and tell me who you end up with as your Court Card theme for the year!
