How to Calculate Your Tarot Year Card

your tarot year card

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!

Check the table below for astrological correspondences:

0 The Fool (22) The Element of Air (Uranus)
1 The Magician Mercury
2 The High Priestess The Moon
3 The Empress Venus

  1. So, it’s definitely a “let’s get going” year with an 8 for me. Strength and Leo (Leo, of course). The power grows and needs expressing, I think. Thanks for reminding me to do this!

  2. I’m in Temperance now! Had enough of Death for a lifetime! I must calculate if I’ll be due another Death year at some stage.

    A fellow tarot reading friend of mine says that you stay with the card of the year until your birthday, and that you have both vibrations for part of the year (unless you were born in January). So for me that means I have both Death and Temperance until my birthday in February, and then just Temperance for the rest of 2018. I definitely found it has been accurate the past few years. Interesting concept! Everyone has a different spin on it 🙂

      Yeah, I was first taught to read it like that too… it’s trickier with people who have birthdays late in the year than for people like me whose birthday is in January. It never worked for me… or the people I was reading for. And strictly from a Numerology point of view, it doesn’t work either according to one published Numerologist I know. But of course, if you feel it works for you, you should stick with it 🙂

  3. The Numbers will never add up to zero, so is the Fool card completely skipped? Should the Fool be counted as 23 instead?
    I have seen in other places where the Fool is counted as 23, but now not sure which is correct.

          Thank you, I have done that now. This article was written as a sequel to the Tarot Birth Cards article where this had already been covered but you are absolutely right – It needs to be stated clearly 🙂
