Tarot is a very popular card game that is a reading practice of tarot cards to gain insight into the past, present, or future by producing a question, drawing a card, and interpreting it.

Just like every person has a zodiac sign, we each have a birth card, and the answer to "what tarot card am I born under?" is as simple as completing an easy math problem.

Tarot is all about working with the divine in life, which is things in your life related to, devoted to, or proceeding from a god.

The cards are split into two categories, the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana cards.

The Major cards are often a prompt to reflect on your life's broader lessons and overall themes. The Minor cards are four tarot suits that focus on different parts of our lives: the Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles.

According to a TikToker who goes by the handle @Anastasiamoongirl, calculating your tarot birth card is simple.

1. Write down the date, month, and year you were born.

For example, if you were born on April 3, 1995, you would write 04 / 03 / 1995.

2. Add the day and month together.

Using the previous example, 04+03=07.

3. Add the first two numbers and last two numbers of your year.

For 1995, you'd do 19+95=114.

4. Add those two totals together.

Take the total from adding your day and month and add that to the total of your year.

For example, 07+114=121

5. Add that final total together.

If it’s a three-digit number you add the first two and the last number together to get your birth number. Take the previous example, for instance, which as a three-digit result would then be 12+1=13.

If it’s just a two-digit number, then that’s your birth number.

It’s that easy! Once you find your number you can look up what card correlates to your number — we have a list of all the tarot numbers where you can find which one is yours.

Tarot Birth Card Meaning

Your birth card has significance because of what it reveals about your life.

Birth cards reveal how others start to know you and are the starting place of self-awareness and the tarot's first means of self-knowledge. They give us a feeling of having a place in the world and a role to play in your life. They explain our strengths and weaknesses and a facet of your life that is constant.

Through your birth card, you can discover what the challenges, roles, and greatest potentials are in your life.
