Tarot profile and 13th zodiac sign
I remember a few years ago it was on the new that a new zodiac sign was discovered The Ophiuchus. If I look up my sign with the 13th sign I am Sagittarius and not a Capricorn. I am getting interested in Astrology due to my tarot studies and I know that 2,500 years ago, when the horoscope originated in ancient Babylon, the Sun crossed through each of the zodiacal constellations on different dates than today, approximately four weeks earlier. Anyway, as I am studying in Mary Greer's book Tarot for yourself, I am making a tarot profile but of course at the time she wwrote it the 13th sign was not there so I don't know how to make the tarot profile with the 13th sign in consideration. So, I am wondering if anyone has some idea's for me.
I have no idea what a Tarot profile is to be honest.
Let’s first take a look at you calculate your personality and soul cards. According to Mary K Greer you add the numbers of your birth date like this:
Example: 13th of April, 1975.
You then add each digit in the sum: 1+9+9+2=21, keeping any number from 1-22.
In this example, 21, The World, is your personality card. As this is a double digit number, you can reduce it further to a single digit number by adding 2+1=3. 3, The Empress, is your soul card.
If the sum is greater than 22, you reduce the digits until you have a smaller number. If the sum then becomes a single digit number, the personality card and the soul card are one and the same.
In one instance, a person can have more than two personality cards, and this happens when the sum is 19. Cards 1, 10 and 19 then all become both personality and soul cards.
Number 22 corresponds to 0, the Fool, with number 4, the Emperor as the soul card. According to Mary K Greer, these two cards also work more as a unit rather than as a separate soul and personality cards.
In the table below, you will find some key words for each numerological constellation, and also see which card is your Hidden Factor or Shadow Card. The term “Shadow” here is used in the Jungian sense to refer to those aspects of ourselves that we’d rather keep in the subconscious and therefore tend to project onto others.
Personality & Soul Card Patterns Hidden Factor,
Teacher/Shadow Constellation Principle
10 + 19
(Sun, Wheel of Fortune, Magician) Will and Focused Consciousness
11 + 20
(Judgment, Justice, H.P.) Balanced Judgment through Intuitive Awareness
12 + 21
(World, Hanged Man, Empress) Love and Creative Imagination
13 + 22
(Fool, Death, Emperor) Life Force and Realisation of Power
(Temperance, Hierophant) Teaching and Learning
(Devil, Lovers) Relatedness and Choice
(Tower, Chariot) Mastery through Change
(Star, Strength) Courage and Self-Esteem
(Moon, Hermit) Introspection and Personal Integrity
The Personality Card tells you how you tend to respond to others based on past experience, as well as how others perceive you (roughly corresponding to your Zodiac Rising Sign). The Soul Card describes your inner drive and motivation, roughly corresponding to the Soul urge in a Numerology reading.
Do a reading with your Birth cards to find out what lessons they are currently bringing into your life.
Thank you for explaining. You might be better off asking this in the astrology and/or numerology forums concerning the 13th sign in this matter?
The table... is that correct? In the example you say "4 Emperor" which is correct. In the table you say "4 is Empress, 5 is Emperor" which is incorrect. It's rather confusing this way.
I also don't understand what the shadow number would be?
I copied it from a website so it may have messed things up. I can't post links yet.I will try and make a picture.
Ooohhh... I seems what happened is that the corresponding card is placed underneath the numbers. So it is correct but you have to read it that way.
In case anyone's interested here's the link with the table that is easier to read:
