Your Personal Tarot Card For 2015

The High PriestessLet’s look into the crystal ball, shall we…


There’s a numerological formula you can use to work out which Tarot card represents the type of experiences you can expect to have each year. The formula gives you a number that correlates with one of the Life Lesson (aka Major Arcana) cards. Because of the way it works each following year you shift into the subsequent Life Lesson card e.g. If your Tarot Year Card in 2014 is The Empress, in 2015 it will be The Emperor. But the turn of each decade signals a re-set button. Thus in 2009 my Tarot Year Card was Judgement but in 2010 it flipped back to The Hanged Man.

The formula is this: You add up your birth day + your birth month + the current calendar year. Then you work out which Life Lesson card matches the number you got. If the number is greater than 21, you add the digits together. My birthday is the 22nd May. The formula for me this year is: 2+2+5+2+0+1+5 which equals 17.

The Life Lessons cards are numbered as follows:

1 The Magician

2 The High Priestess

3 The Empress

4 The Emperor

5 The Hierophant

6 The Lovers

7 The Chariot

8 Strength

9 The Hermit

10 The Wheel of Fortune

11 Justice

12 The Hanged Man

13 Death

14 Temperance

15 The Devil

16 The Tower

17 The Star

18 The Moon

19 The Sun

20 Judgement

21 The World

I’m moving from The Tower as my card-of-the-year to The Star. And boy am I ready for some time out!

It’s important to point out that you should use this formula with a grain of salt (I throw a lot of salt over my shoulder while using Tarot, lol.) You should never let the cards chain you to a particular outcome. That would be using Tarot devil style. I use my Tarot Year Card to give me perspective. To work out how to cope with the experiences I’m going through. How to maximize the lessons in them. You can also use it to learn about Tarot. Note the experiences you have and see how that could fit into the meaning of your personal year card.

Have a go and let me know what you think. And if your Tarot Year Card is one I haven’t focused on yet and you’d like to know more about it let me know in the comments section below. Cheers!

    • Hi Naomi,

      The Wheel of Fortune can involve one or all of the following experiences:
      *A year full of ups and downs.
      *A reversal in fortune.
      *Being at a turning point.
      *Some kind of significant change in your circumstances. It can be for the better or feel like its something terrible. But with this card whatever the change it will ultimately be for the best for you. As in when one door closes another opens kind of way. Karma is at work whipping your ass here. Pushing you on your path e.g. You might get sacked from a job you hated and be forced to look in new directions.

      Hope things work out well for you. Just remember with the Wheel Of Fortune, what goes down will inevitably come up again. Cheers!

    • Hi saide, Temperance is about rebalancing things in your life. It often comes after a period of upheaval. Temperance comes from the word temper. To modify. This can signify the need to manage expectations. To finely adjust behavior. A process that occurs naturally as we age to cater for diminishing physical capabilities and altered desires.

      The kinds of experiences you might have with this card include: Readjusting to a new lifestyle after marriage or a move. Reconnecting with old friends. Adjusting to getting older. Tweaking your presence online. Getting clothes altered to suit a new body shape. Taking the middle path between two possibilities. Managing to stay calm under pressure. Being the chairperson of a committee or president of the board, managing diverse opinions. Re-examining your life’s priorities. Coping with the new reality after your last child leaves home or learning to live with your husband underfoot when he retires. Focusing on your health.
      Does any of this fit?

    • The Empress is the mother, the nurturer, being creative, artistic, indulging yourself, abundance, using your senses, being out in nature, sensuality. Hope that helps!
