Each year we get a new tarot card that lets us know what will be in store. The card tells us what to look out for and what we will be working on for the year. It helps guide us in the months ahead as we continue on our journey to our higher self.
You find your yearly tarot card by adding up the month and day you were born plus the year. The number will need to be 10 or under.
Here are two examples:
If your birthday is March 2, you would add 3 + 2 + 2020 which equals 2025. You would then add 2 + 0 + 2 + 5 giving you 9 as your number for the year.
If your birthday is November 28, you would add 11+28+2020 which equals 2059. You then add 2+0+5+9 get 16. Since your number is greater than 10 you add the two numbers together (1+6) giving you 7 as your number for the year.
Whatever number you get is your personal mentor card for the next 12 months. Here are the descriptions of the cards and what they have in store of you.
1 or 10, The Magician or Wheel of Fortune:
You are full of many gifts. You are a jack-of-all-trades. You are gaining more skills and becoming good at many things. You are especially growing your skillful communication. You feel passionate about many areas but are not sure what direction to go in. This will be a year of taking all your skills and strengths and figuring out what you want to do. Staying in one place while you dabble in a few areas will no longer work. You want to go deeper into something more fulfilling. Spend time thinking about what direction you want to go in this year, invest in higher education, put in hours with a project and do not be afraid to choose something. You will have luck on your side as you dive into something new. You just need to decide what way to turn the wheel. Making strong choices will be a theme for you this year.
2, The High Priestess:
This will be a spiritual year for you. You will have many visions and powerful dreams that will give you insights into your higher self. You will grow deeper in your spirituality and find a personal meditation practice. Stay open this year to signs from your unconscious self. They will appear in dreams, music, and words from wise teachers. You will feel connected to religious symbols and art. Fill your home with things that enhance your psychic energies, whether that be crystals, an altar or a meditation pillow. Have a space where you can enhance your vibrations. Tapping into the spiritual realm will be the theme for you this year.
3, The Empress:
The Empress is one half of the polarity which is the Emperor and Empress. She represents a fertile, nurturing and loving energy. She is all about creating safety and nourishment for herself and those around her. This will be a year of taking care of yourself and nurturing your body. It will also be a year of loving people in your life, especially children. You will spend time connecting to your maternal or paternal nature. You will love your inner child as well as the children in your life. It might be hard to connect to this energy if this is not your normal state. You might need the support of good friends or even a counselor to work through some blocks in this area. But it will be so worth it to learn to nourish yourself in this way. Unconditional love will be a theme for you this year.
4, The Emperor:
The Emperor is the other half of the Empress. Together they balance one another. We need the self-love of the Empress in order to succeed as the Emperor. He is all about tapping into your leadership abilities and learning your own power. But if you lead without loving yourself and those around you, your leadership will be forceful and uninspired. This year will be about learning how to lead and how to step into your personal power. You have so much strength inside of you and are ready to take on big responsibilities. You might be stepping into a new role at work, starting your own business, or galvanizing your community. However it looks, you will take charge this year. Learning how best to do this will be your goal. Gaining wisdom from other loving and powerful leaders of the world will be part of your journey. Soak in the skills of those who lead with compassion and intelligence. Loving leadership will be the theme for you this year.
5, The Hierophant:
You are ready for a teacher this year. You are ready to question institutions that you once followed unscrupulously. You are ready to expand your mind and let go of any restraining forces in your life. Whether you go back to school or find a spiritual mentor to help on your new path, a teacher will enter your life in some way. You feel you have reached as high as you can get on your own and you need a guide to help take you to the next level. However, there are a few things to look out for when a new teacher enters your life. A true Hierophant never sells themselves to you, the Universe will put them in your path naturally. Trust your own intuition, if you feel uneasy about following a guide listen to that feeling. This will be an inspiring year full of opportunities to learn. So open your mind to the possibilities and use your own wisdom to guide a mentor to your life. Curiosity and intellectual pursuits will be the themes of the year.
6, The Lovers:
There is an innocence and trust that comes with this card. This is our heart before we have ever been hurt. It is our heart before we became overly cautious with our love. Under the energy of this card, we give our love freely to others. We feel whole in ourselves and are not looking for another person to fill us up. This year will be about reclaiming your heart. You will start to trust the Universe again and love without fear. You will work on what you are afraid of and let go of the past. You will give yourself deep respect. You will not be focused on finding a partner or fulfillment through outside sources. Instead, you will give love without needing something in return. This type of vibration will draw healthy and emotionally available people into your life. The Lovers card shows energy flowing freely. We don’t stop its flow with our personal blocks and anxieties. The themes of this year will be love, acceptance, and trust.
7, The Chariot:
This card represents a year where you will benefit from all your hard work and personal growth. You have been struggling and pushing through challenging times. But you are now in a period where you will feel rewarded for your efforts. As a product of overcoming your challenges victoriously, there will now be some big changes in your life. These changes will be very beneficial to you and will lead you to more success. You are peace but you still have some armor on. You are going to protect your energy in ways you did not before. Much like the energy of the Magician or the Wheel of Fortune, you now need to decide what direction to go in. You have a new path before you and luck is on your side. You will need to take all you learned and find what way to go. The Chariot is also associated with travel, so you might take a big trip this year. This will be a trip that will take much planning and will be a life-affirming adventure. Allowing yourself to take risks will be the theme of the year.
This will be a year of reflecting and adjusting your personal behaviors. You need to evaluate where in your life you have stagnant energy, where you are not growing, and where you are not healthy. Take time this year to look at your habits and routines. Are you doing things that are not in line with where you want to go? If your circumstances or behaviors are not what you want, you can make a change. You can create more harmony in your life. You have control of your actions and can be more intentional. You will feel empowered this year to make adjustments to your routines. You will invest more in your health, wealth, and peace. You will feel ownership over your actions instead of blaming others. The theme of the year will be personal accountability and intentionality. You will end the year with much more balance.
9, The Hermit:
This will be a year of creativity, wisdom, and experience. You will grow all of these areas by spending time with yourself. You might go on a meditation retreat to travel somewhere alone. You will take long walks and journal about your experiences. You will spend time getting to know yourself on a deeper level and grow your hidden talents. This will be a year of finding your personal center and becoming very strong inside. You will find yourself saying no to plans with friends or family. This is not a bad thing, as you will be focusing on your own energy. At the end of the year, you will know yourself in a more complex way. You will have grown your creativity. It will not be a lonely time, but instead a time of deep reflection. You will dive into yourself and find out more than you have ever known. The theme of the year will be centering and personal exploration.
