Moon Phases

Full moon rising by Andrew McMillan

Did you know that a woman's menstrual cycle begins during the first day of her moon?

I know a little about astrology, like creating a natal chart. I didn't realize how the movement of the moon actually affects us.

Astrology is an area I would like to learn more about, so expect to see more of it on the blog as I discover the secrets of Astrology.

Would you like to test this?

Natal charts are available on line, free. Here's one:, but if you Google you will find many.

Here's a calendar that charts the movement of the moon:

Soul Card

The second card in a Tarot Profile is the Soul Card. This card indicates your soul purpose for all your lifetimes.

To discover this card simply add the numbers of your Personality Card. Reduce this number together until you reach a number between 1 and 9. Match this number with the corresponding Major Arcana card and you have your Soul Card.

The formula for your Personality Card can be found here.

In some cases, your Personality Card and Soul Card will be the same.

My Personality Card is 5 - The Hierophant. Since the 5 is already between 1 and 9, it is also my Soul Card.

What is your Soul Card? What is your Soul purpose?

Share with us your card, and I'll post on that particular Soul Card to give you a better understanding of your soul purpose.

Tarot Dynamics - Learn to read any spread

Tarot Dynamics

I know there are a lot of how to books out there on Tarot Reading. Most of them are just another version of someone else's interpretation of the card meanings.

I haven't yet purchased this book, but from my research it seems like it will a unique addition to a Tarot Reader's book shelf.

Bonnie offers a book review and an interview with the author, Anna Cook.

If you want to learn more about the Tarot, be sure to read these articles and grab a copy of the book. I definitely have it on my to-buy list.

Personality Card

Discovering a better understanding of yourself is one way to use the Tarot cards. Creating a Tarot Profile is one step toward this.

The first card to discover is the Personality Card. This card reflects what you have come in to this particular lifetime to learn.

To find this card, add the numerical values of your birthday and reduce number to 22 or below.

Example: 12-10-1972 = 12+10+1972 = 1994 = 1+9+9+4 = 23 = 5

Your Personality Card is then selected by corresponding number with card from Major Arcana.

In this case, my Personality Card is The Hierophant.

The Hierophant represents the need to follow tradition, ceremony or a path of ideas and beliefs. It represents an interest in spiritual matters, or a spiritual mentor.

The Hierophant is the keeper of religious knowledge. Unlike the High Priestess, who keeps the knowledge for the sake of holding, the Hierophant keeps the knowledge for the sake of sharing.

If your Personality Card is The Hierophant, your lessons for this lifetime are to create a sturdy foundation for your spiritual beliefs and to share them with others. You are to be a teacher of a spiritual nature. This may come any many forms, not necessarily religious is traditional ways, although I would be surprised to find a preacher with the Hierophant as his/her Personality Card. You may teach through writing, through workshops, or perhaps sharing on the Internet. Your spiritual beliefs could range from tarot studies, kindness to others, family values, etc. The main point of this lifetime is to share your beliefs to better educate and bring understanding to others.

What is your Personality Card? What are your lessons in this lifetime?

Share with us your card, and I'll post on that particular Personality Card to give you better understanding of your lessons.
