To calculate your personal year/ current cycle card add your birth month and birth date and the current year, reduce those numbers as far as you can and use the corresponding card from the Major Arcana. This will be the Theme of your year, aspects of this card will have some lessons for you to learn from, Iím not sure what all, so that was why I developed this spread to see what to expect from this current cycle. I think whether you begin this when the year changes or at the time of your birthday is completely up to you.
