To find our what your personal year card is, take your day and month of birth and and add to 39 (ie 20+19, the incoming year).
Here’s an example: mine!
Since there is no Major Arcana card numbered 60 (hey, we’re not using Minchiates here, people!), these digits need to be further reduced by adding them together, giving us a total of 6.
My theme for the year will be inspired by The Lovers *and I absolutely need to make better choices for myself!*
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 6 – Lovers year – becomes further compounded by Court Card 6…. which is The Knight of Cups. This year is going to be my Grail year, and my search will involve making better choices for myself! *gives facebook some side-eye*
Want to take it further?! Well, you will be able to when my self-published book on court cards comes out at the beginning of July (at the latest!).
Have a try yourself and tell me who you end up with as your Court Card theme for the year!
