After a few years of journaling and tarot research, I created this website. I hope visitors to my website find something interesting and useful to utilize in their own educational and personal journeys across space and here on planet Earth.
Visitors have the opportunity to examine card meanings from several angles during on-site tarot readings. Each reading serves as a different lens for perception and reveals fresh perspectives. In contrast to the Past, Present, and Future reading, which examines a person’s entire life journey, the Love Tarot illustrates each card as it relates to love. The Yes/No Tarot provides clear answers to your inquiries, while the Daily Tarot takes you on a thorough and frequently unexpected trip through one single card. I recently updated a section regarding the card meanings in the deck I use, and I’m really happy about it! These tarot readings can be followed up with a live reading if you’re interested.
The tarot card meanings offer detailed explanations of each card’s meaning, along with a brief summary, meditative questions based on each card’s upright or reversed position, symbol interpretation, and “Charmaine’s Take,” a few paragraphs in which I, the author of Tell My Tarot, share my own opinions on the card’s resonances in the modern world.
How can I determine which tarot card I have?
The technique that was created with The Tarot School is the one that I was first exposed to and with which I am most familiar.
- In order for you to add these two-digit numbers together, we first divide your birthdate into 4 groups of 2 digits each. YY + MM + DD + DD + YY
- Add the numbers together if the total is a two-digit number. Your first birth certificate is here. To obtain your second birth certificate, reduce this to a single digit.
- Ex: 11 + 22 + 20 + 00 = 53
- Strength – First Card: 5 + 3 = 8.
- The Star – Second Card: 8 = 1 + 7 = 17
- Add the first two digits to the third digit if the sum is a three-digit number. Your first birth certificate is here. To obtain your second birth certificate, reduce this to a single digit.
- Ex: 07 + 20 + 19 + 89 = 135
- Moon – First Card: 13 + 5 = 18.
- Hermit – Second Card, 1 + 8 = 9.
- When your total equals 19, there is an exception to all of these laws. Those with this much will have three cards, compared to the average person’s two. This is due to the fact that 1 + 9 = 10 and 1 + 0 = 1, creating your cards. The Magician, The Wheel, and The Sun
What does the tarot term “near future” mean?
To the right of the mini-cross is the near future.
The card in this position represents something that is about to materialize. The outcome could be determined by an event, a difficulty that must be conquered, or a person, depending on the card.
It’s crucial to look at this card and then the final one (in a later lesson) to see exactly what might have an impact on the outcome if anything lands in this position.
The effect will depend on the card and the result, and will either be permanent, transitory, or modifying.
If the immediate future and final outcome are both Major Arcana, this may indicate a succession of life-changing events for the inquirer.
However, if the immediate future is a Major and the result is a Minor, that may point to a significant change that is being integrated.
A negative card, like the Eight of Swords, followed by a positive card, like the Sun, in the near future may suggest the inquirer must go through a trying time, but everything will be OK in the end.
If those cards were reversed, we might observe a joyful circumstance that ends up being constricting.
In the near future, court cards may show the appearance of a person who could be significant to the querent’s future.
Pay attention to the immediate future since it contains details about things that might happen or people who might have an impact on the final result.
Let’s add some cards to our sample reading from the prior lesson:
The questioner has experienced a life-changing event, perhaps a divorce, according to the previous cards.
They have been recovering and are now taking control of the situation again. The Sun indicates that the questioner may have happiness in the future. And the King of Pentacles’ presence indicates that it might be coming from someone who embodies the traits of the King of Pentaclescalm, grounded, and trustworthy. A new associate? Or perhaps a handmaiden with sporadic influence? To find out, you’ll need to look at the result in the end.
Try again with the Ace of Pentacles:
This card represents rebirth to me because it comes after the Sun.
a brand new beginning. This combination might indicate someone who unexpectedly quit an unsatisfactory employment to determine what they really wanted to do with their lives if the questioner was asking about their career. They may find their actual interest and start a career they are passionate about, according to the Sun and Ace of Wands.
How can I determine my Tarot card year?
By the way, depending on where you think the parentheses in the math formula belong and the subsequent order of operations, I think I might be calculating the year card a little differently.
My strategy is to separate out three sums for a trinity that has spiritual significance. Your birth month and day are combined to create one number. If the year is your birth year or a transiting year for a Tarot Year Card calculation, add the digits for that year separately.
You have now completed two operations. When you combine the two together, you get the third order for that beautiful, tidy trinity. Theosophic reduction is only performed once three operations for the trinity have been completed (i.e., if the sum is over 22, add the digits together for a single digit sum).
That is the intriguing riddle with metaphysics.
There are numerous alternative methods and correspondence schemes. Consider my investigation of elemental directional correspondences and resolving the conflicts in a prior blog article.
It’s crucial to comprehend your justification and to choose a strategy or correspondence system that supports your personal philosophy.
You should do such procedures independently before combining them in a math problem where parentheses denote the separation of ideas (left to right). Since the idea of a Base Year has been established, it only makes sense to calculate the Base Year using a different order of operations. It supports the viewpoint that each Base Year is “predetermined to the point where, simply by adding up the numbers, we can predict what the Base Year tarot card will be.
The degree of the sun in astrology is equal to the month plus the day. That then becomes an idea in and of itself. What is the sum of our birthday’s month, day, and sun sign degree? “changes a Base Year determination’s overall generalities. Therefore, it makes sense that the degree of the sun sign, as an independent concept transferred to numerology for this purpose, would be its own distinct idea and require a different set of parentheses. It seems logical to me to carry out this step in a separate predetermined order of operation, and to combine the two preset sums in the third and last predetermined order of operation.
This technique of calculation produces three operations for a trinity, matching it with Hermetic and Neo-Platonic philosophytwo ideas that have a significant impact on esoteric tarot.
So that’s the justification behind my strategy. However, it differs from the conventional approach advocated by Archetypal Tarot and the literature on tarot birth cards.
My advice is to investigate the many strategies, choose the one that works best for you, and then stay with it, i.e., be consistent. The most important factor is ultimately personal consistency.
The Fool is card 22 in the Archetypal Tarot. Key 0: The Fool can be a birth card or, in the case of the practice in this workshop, a Tarot year card.
I don’t follow 22 because my own philosophy favors the continuity of trinities and the hallowed sevens. I perform the theosophic reduction if the total exceeds 21. I prefer to view The Fool card as a symbol. But this is solely a matter of personal taste. Just do what seems to work for you; there is no right or wrong answer here.
If your birthday occurs between January 1 and June 30, according to Archetypal Tarot, your Tarot Year Cycle is more likely to be felt from one January to the next, neatly aligning with the calendar year.
However, if you were born in a late calendar season, between July 1 and December 31, you are more likely to experience the Tarot Year according to the appropriate Major Arcana card from your birthday through the next birthday or solar return.
I suggested a three-card oracle reading when considering the lessons your Tarot Year Card will teach you, but you are welcome to approach the journaling prompts as you prefer. Yes, you could use a tarot deck for this, but I’ve found that using a non-tarot deck works far better. Pick your favorite modern oracle deck, like as Lenormand, Kipper, or another.
Because there is a wider range of artistic expression when you take your Tarot Year Card from many modern decks, this is an extremely enjoyable practice. I had a Key 20: Judgement year in 2021, so if I’m studying the Judgement card, I’ll take a Key 20 from one of the several tarot decks I own and lay it out in a spread.
If you have a sizable collection of tarot decks, choose your Tarot Year card from seven, eight, or even ten different decks, and arrange the cards in a spread as you respond to the journaling questions on the handout.
Tarot Year card variations should be read as their own spread, which means you should look for symbols that strike out to you and make a note of which signs or symbols are drawing your attention. Summarize the various ways that Major Arcana card has been interpreted. As you explore the Tarot Year, take a picture of the spread.
The Tarot Year Card is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what you can accomplish with it; birth cards, personality cards, soul cards, and other cards are all covered. Learn more about Base Years, Cycle Themes, and your Karmic Year while also reading about them. This book also has an amazing reference on how to interpret your Year Cards.

Can you interpret tarot cards for yourself?
It’s normal to be a little clumsy when you first start practicing the tarot. Tarot study is similar to learning a new languageit takes time to become proficient. But what happens if you no longer require the booklet and have intimate familiarity with the deck? Are you able to read yourself? No, except for a few rare instances. Simply put, it’s a horrible idea.
You see, the majority of us turn to astrology or tarot when we’re looking for clarity amid a period of ambiguity. In contrast to astrology, which is quite technical, our consciousness restricts our capacity to read tarot cards. Working with your personal interpretation of the cards, you are not constrained by short- and long-term cycles like the planets’ orbits. It might be tricky to go beyond your current circumstances while utilizing the tarot to better understand a trying scenario. Even if all the cards are spread out in front of you, putting them together requires such a broad perspective that it is all but impossible to fully understand the meaning of each card. Basically, any biases you already have will always be reflected in your tarot reading!
What tarot card has the most influence?
The Fool is typically seen as a card from the Major Arcana when performing a tarot reading. Contrary to popular belief, the Fool does not fall under either category in tarot card games. Instead, the Fool serves a function that is distinct from both the simple suit cards and the trump cards. As a result, the Fool has no number assigned to it in the majority of tarot decks that were initially created for playing games. Although Waite assigns the Fool the number 0, in his book, the Fool is discussed between Judgment (number 20) and The World (number 21). The Tarocco Piemontese is the only traditional game deck that numbers the Fool 0. Since the 1930s, the corner index for the Fool in Tarot Nouveau decks has frequently been a black inverted mullet. The Fool is one of the most expensive cards in practically all tarot games.
What does a tarot natal card mean?
Tarot birth cards are used to describe a consistent aspect of who you are. In terms of the concepts of sense of identity and having a place in the world, this serves a similar purpose as the zodiac.
How can I figure out my shadow card?
Greetings from #MagicMondays! I’ll publish a piece on All Things Witch every Monday. I frequently get texts about witchcraft, respond to emails about symbols, and have ritual discussions over shared meals. I made the decision to gather all of this information in one location and spread it around. Because magic resides inside of us, we are all capable of using it! Let’s start working now!
I occasionally determine a person’s birth card and shadow card during a reading. The cards even appear in the spread we lay out on the table to emphasize how important they are to people. In astrology, your birth card corresponds to your solar sign. It’s also referred to as your personality card. It represents the kind of person you are. It’s useful to consider astrology at this time. The sun wants to establish its individuality. Your sun sign’s characteristics influence the various ways in which you construct your existence. More of what you need to study is displayed on your birth certificate. Are you prepared to determine yours?
This is something I picked up from my ghoul friend Wolfie in Philadelphia a few years ago, and it has proven useful to me ever since. Okay, you must include the month, day, and year of your birthday. Here’s an illustration:
The next step is to add that number. Continue adding these numbers up until you reach a result that falls between 22* and 1.
1 + 3 + 4 = 8
This card represents your birth and is the Major Arcana card Strength.
This makes it simple to identify your Shadow card, also known as your Soul card by some teachers. In the tarot’s story, this card signifies what comes after you in life and what your soul’s mission or journey might be. You merely need to multiply the original three-digit number (134) by one to find out:
13 + 4 = 17
The Major Arcana card The Star has a counterpart in this shadow card, which is your own.
Here’s another illustration. Let’s use Kanye West’s birthday as an example:
And 11 + 0 Equals 11
It relates to his shadow card, Justice, also known as Accountability in some decks.
Your birth card is The Fool (22 = 0), while your soul card is The Emperor (2 + 2=4), if your initial number is 22.
Your initial number becomes both your Birth and Shadow card if the sum is greater than 22, which causes you to become intensely concentrated on the current phase of your life.
Additionally, you have three cards if your first number is 19. the Magician (1 + 0 = 1), the Sun, and the Wheel of Fortune (1 + 9 = 10). Similar to the Sunaltimate dynamic, in essence. When the odds are in your favor, you are a rare beast.
It was enjoyable! Before you leave, please be aware that I will be providing readings this weekend in Brooklyn (off the L, M, or B38 bus) in honor of Friday’s full moon and eclipse. I’m available on Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20 at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 4 p.m. To arrange a meeting and learn more, send me an email or a message. I would adore reading to you!
When will the near future be?
The precise duration of the near term is unknown. The near term, according to some, is anything lasting fewer than a few months. The next five or ten minutes are often referred to as the near term by day traders.
What is the 2022 Tarot Card?
The second sign in line is Taurus, which is symbolized by a bull. Native Americans have traits similar to those of a bull, such as being independent and headstrong. You are realistic, down to earth, and humble individuals who, once they make the decision to move a rock, won’t back down. Your top need is always for stability. You enjoy doing creative things and being in nature. You are a good artist because of this talent of yours. You tend to like eating healthy cuisine.
