It's been quite awhile since I did any major posts on tarot, so I am starting a new series concerning Tarot Soul Cards!
Just by way of background, I've been reading tarot for 25 years now and have always found it to be interesting and instructive. I subscribe to the Jungian view of tarot as a psychological expression and reflection of our inner self, rather than believing tarot to be some woo-woo manifestation of the Occult.
Similar to the symbol system of astrology, the major arcana cards of the tarot can be used to describe and categorize someone's soul path or soul journey through this world. Every person's Soul Card will fall into one of the following nine types:
2. High Priestess
These Soul Card types are often called "constellations" because each type is made up of one dominant, plus one or two secondary, major arcana cards.
To find which Soul Card is yours, do the following calculation.
First, add up the month, date and year of your birth. For example, let's say your birth date is July 26, 1943:
Take the resulting sum and then add each digit across: 1 + 9 + 7 + 6 = 23.
If you end up with a double-digit number, again add each digit across: 2 + 3 = 5.
The goal is to reach a single-digit number. Once you reach it, that number is your Tarot Soul Card. In this example, the Soul Card is number 5 -- the Hierophant.
Every week, I will write a post describing one of the Tarot Soul Card constellations in turn. I hope you'll play along, calculate your Soul Card number and enjoy learning about your own constellation when it is posted!
As always, anything about tarot on this blog is just meant as fun and entertainment, rather than as serious advice about how to live your life.
