Caculate Your Soul Card
How to calculate your soul card, and learn more about yourself
We can use tarot cards to learn more about ourselves. In my opinion, one of the most powerful ways to get to know yourself is through tarot. It helps us connect to our inner wisdom and understand about the differences between who we were and who we are becoming. There is a quote that says: "To find yourself, first learn about yourself”. Finding the real you through tarot is an enlightening experience.
By adding our date of birth, we can figure out which tarot card represents our soul. The Soul Card indicates our soul purpose for all our lifetimes.
If we look at the tarot major arcana, we can match our soul card with the corresponding card from the major arcana. For example, my birth date is 21 October 1980. To calculate my soul card I add 2+1+1+1+9+8+0 = –> 2+2 = 4. So, my birth number is four. This makes my soul card 4 - The Emperor.
When we get a number with 2 digits, we need to keep adding the digits together until we get a single digit number. Your soul number will be a number between 1 - 9.
