Using the same method as you did for your Personality/Birth Card, you add the number of the day and the month you were born to the year you are in or coming up to.
Example: You were born on the 3rd of April, and want to know your card for 2007
You then add each digit in the sum: 2+0+1+4=7, keeping any number from 1-22, with the Fool having the assigned numerological value of 22 in any Tarot Numerology operations.
In this example, 7, The Chariot, is your Year Card.
In Tarot for Your Self, there are graphs that you can copy and use to show your year cards from age 0-21. There’s also a table that makes it quick and easy to figure out the card for each year.
It is interesting looking at the graph and trying to figure out what main events may have been influenced by the energies of the Year Cards. It also adds a lot of depth doing this in combination with an astrology reading.
Let me know how you are getting on in the comments below if you already use this method, or are beginning to experiment with it. How does it match or contradict your astrological birth chart? I look forward to hearing from you!
