In the last blog post, I discussed the Tarot Exercise of finding your Tarot Year Card. Using only the Major Arcana cards, this exercise relies on numerology to determine what card you get.
As a quick reminder of how to calculate your Tarot Year Card, you just add up your day and month of birth plus the current year. By adding up the digits of the result, you’ll find your Year Card.
Day of birth + Month of Birth + Current Year = Tarot Year Card
The chart here shows you what card correlates with each number. Once you’ve found your Year Card, you can look more into what that card might mean for you.
The last blog post covered the first 10 cards of the Major Arcana, so this post will cover the remaining 12.
Continue reading to find out what your card means in general and what it could suggest for you this year!
Justice represents balance, fairness, and equality. It can suggest legal justice, but is also symbolic of karma and the justice of the universe.
If your Year Card is Justice, you are seeking to restore balance in your life. Last year was the Wheel of Fortune, so now, you are getting used to a new normal.
12. The Hanged Man
The Hanged Man represents letting go, stagnation, and gaining a new perspective. Although the figure in the card hangs upside down from a tree, his face appears calm – he has come to peace with his situation.
If you get The Hanged Man as your Year Card, you might feel like your life is literally turned upside down right now, but you are learning something important. In addition, there are certain things – people, ideas, and beliefs – that you may need to let go of.
Contrary to popular belief, Death doesn’t actually mean “death.” Rather, this card represents endings, transformation, and rebirth. There may be a painful end in your life, but through grief, you will emerge transformed.
If your Tarot Year Card is Death, you may be dealing with unresolved emotional pain. This is also a year of great personal growth for you.
Temperance represents healing, balance, and an overall sense of calm. It also represents creativity and being able to go with the flow.
If Temperance is your Year Card, it indicates that you are striving to achieve balance within your own life. This year, focus on your inner creativity and allow that to guide you.
15. The Devil
The Devil represents temptation, overindulgence, and oppression. However, the oppression here may not be real – you are feeling trapped by your external circumstances, but in reality, you are holding yourself back.
If this card is your Year Card, you may need to slow down a bit with your indulgences. Additionally, this card might be suggesting that you are keeping yourself in an unhealthy situation.
16. The Tower
The Tower represents chaos, destruction, and enlightenment. At first glance, it may seem like those are opposing forces, but it is through destruction that creation is born.
If The Tower is your Tarot Year Card, you may have a somewhat turbulent year ahead of you – there might be a great deal of change and unrest coming your way, but focus on how best to forge ahead.
17. The Star
The Star represents hope, healing, and idealism. It suggests a period of optimism and a sense of renewed hope. This is especially important after the destruction and chaos found in the previous card, The Tower.
If your Tarot Year Card is The Star, now is a time for inner healing and rejuvenation. Is there something you’re working through after last year? Look towards the future and continue to set goals for what you want.
18. The Moon
The Moon represents dreams, instincts, repressed emotions, and deeper intuition. Like the Star, it can also suggest a period of emotional healing. In addition, the Moon is a symbol of mystery and secrecy. As such, this card represents exploring the unknown or looking closer at hidden matters.
If The Moon is your Tarot Year Card, you have more healing to do. As you work through this, it suggests that you listen closely to what your intuition is telling you.
19. The Sun
The Sun is symbolic of happiness, joy, and success. You’ve emerged from the darkness and are now in a time of light and love. This card also represents children – it can imply a sense of childlike innocence, but it might also represent having children.
If you get The Sun as your Year Card, you can look forward to a fun-filled and happy year. Enjoy time with your loved ones and celebrate your achievements.
Judgement represents a higher calling, forgiveness, and release. It’s another card of transformation and healing, but it also suggests critical thinking.
If Judgement is your Year Card, it might indicate that you are going through an important rite of passage this year, or that it will be a year of great awakening for you.
21. The World
The World represents completion and celebration. As the last card of the Major Arcana, it indicates that you have come full circle – you’ve gone through both challenges and achievements and that particular chapter is coming to some sort of resolution.
If The World is your Year Card, it might represent something significant coming to an end (such as retirement or graduation). Regardless of what you are celebrating, it is a time to celebrate and enjoy the present.
22. The Fool
The Fool is number 22 in this particular exercise, but it is actually number 0 in the Major Arcana. As such, it represents a new beginning and infinite potential. It can sometimes suggest naiveté, but sometimes you have to take a leap of faith in life.
If The Fool is your Year Card, you are starting something new this year. Make sure you’re well-prepared!
