soul card/personality card


Hi

I've read a few references to soul and personality cards. Not sure what they are and would anyone be able to enlighten me!?

A Personality Card indicates your life purpose, aspirations, and lessons to be learned

A Soul Card indicates your soul purpose and qualities that will assist you

A Hidden Factor/Teacher Card indicates qualities you fear, reject, or donít see that can become your greatest strengths

Do you need to know how to calculate your Personality card and Soul card?

They are done by adding up the numbers of your birthday. For example, mine is June 29, 1956

So....

---6
--29
1956
____
1991

1+9+9+1=20

That makes 20 my Personality card, Judgment. To get your Soul card you add up the numbers in your Personality card. In this case, 2+0=2. That makes my Soul card card 2, the High Priestess. '

This method only uses the Majors and has to be a number 22 or lower. If your answer is higher you need to add the numbers again to come up with a number 22 or lower. For the purposes of Personality and Soul cards The Fool is considered card 22. Since there are no combination you can add up that will give you 0.

As well, adding the day and month you were born to the current year will give you your Tarot year card for that year...about what the year will bring for you, what influences you will have to face...

Using your method my personality is 19.. the sun and my soul 10.. the wheel of fortune...sounds pretty Aquarius to me!

Actually, your soul card is 1 (Magician) and the wheel of fortune is your Hidden Factor/Teacher card

Thanks for the correction. I was told by a tarot reader a long time ago I was the magician, so I guess that fits better.

Heck, Still sounds perfectly Aquarius to me!

How do you work out the hidden factor/teacher card then? I did a search but I can't find it

well, the hidden factor is the card that adds up to your soul number but isn't your personality number
