How to Find Your Tarot Birth Card

You have your sun sign, which is how most people see you and then you have your moon sign, which is how you see yourself, or the more authentic you. Birth cards are like that… they’re overarching themes in our personality that have been with us since birth.

They tell you things about yourself that have been and will be present all throughout life.

This building is what creates our individuality. Humans are in essence all built from the same materials, just in different amounts and in different ways. Birth cards are the building blocks, your foundation, but not everything. It’s what we add to those foundations are what make us authentic and different. I know being different sounds scary, but you don’t want to live in a world where everyone is the same, do you?

Being your authentic self is a good things.

Now, to calculate your birth card pair…

Step 1: Take your birth date and break it down into all two digit numbers

Example: July 25, 1989 can be broken down to 07 25 19 89.

Step 2: Now add these numbers up.

Example: 07+25+19+89=140

Step 3: If this number is a triple-digit, you will need to add the numbers again to get a two-digit number that’s less than 21.

Example: 140 = 14 + 0 = 14 (Temperance)

Step 4: This can further be broken down to single digits to get your other half of the pair.

14 = 1 + 4 = 5 (Hierophant)

So my birth card pair is Temperance/ Hierophant.

Below are descriptions of the tarot birth card pairs or patterns that all birth dates will break down into.

    Hey Destiny- to find the meaning of your birth cards, you would use your interpretation of the cards. Judgement may mean that you are hearing a call, like an awakening and the high priestess can symbolize that this call is coming from your intuition. They can also mean that you are listening to your intuition (high priestess) and like to give people advice. Use your personal meanings of the cards to interpret the bigger meanings that describe your personality.

    Hello. I got 13/4 Death/Emperor. What does it means?

  4. Julie Avatar

    WinterMoonEmpress- the meaning of the cards is dependent on your interpretation of the cards. If you read tarot cards, use your personal meaning of the cards. Otherwise the cards refer to someone who trustworthy and stable. You are in control of your own life. You know what you want and how to get it. But at the same time, you are able to transform yourself easily into what you feel you need to be at the time. You can easily get rid of habits and emotions that no longer serve you. I hope this helped you!

    My birthday is 05/01/1980
    So how would I break that down to a lower number?

    You add 10 and 5 to get 15. Your birth card(s) would be Devil/Lovers.

    His would be The Chariot.

    It goes in with the number 16, since 1 and 6 equals out to 7. So I'm assuming his would also be Tower.

    My daughter is 01 20 0f 2002 is adds up to 43, but when I break it down and add 4+3= 7.
    How does this work?

    1. Julie Avatar

      Marilyn, your daughters birth card would then be 7 (Chariot) with 16 (Tower) (https://ohmterra.com/chariot-pattern/). For more in depth information on each of these cards, check out the updated post here: https://ohmterra.com/in-depth-tarot-birth-cards-finding-your-soul-with-tarot/

    Hi, mine turns out to be 17/8 and after reading each cards meaning, they were definitely both “reversed”. Does that mean anything and will it end?

    1. Faerellia Avatar

      The reversed meanings are just a different aspect of the card. There are some tarot readers who do not use reversed cards, but incorporate that meaning into a possibility when it is upright. Your birth cards will not change, but you may embody different aspects of the meanings as you go through different phases of your life.
