How to Calculate Your Personal Tarot Card of the Year for 2022

Tarot reader Adrienne Amari posted a video on TikTok explaining how to calculate your 2022 tarot year card within the Major Arcana.

All you need in order to find it is your birth month, birth date, and the year you want to calculate it for — so for this year, 2022.

   

   

Step 1: Add the number correlating to your birth month (January = 1, February = 2, etc.) plus your birth date (the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.) and 2022.

For example: If your birthday is April 3 and you want to find your tarot year card for 2022, your calculation would look like this: 4+3+2022= 2029

Step 2: Add the individual numbers of your result from step one.

Using the same example, you would next add 2+0+2+9= 13.

There are 22 cards in the Major Arcana, so if your result is a number equal to 23 or higher, add the individual numbers again.

Step 3: Look below to find the tarot card that matches the number of your result, which is your tarot year card for 2022.

If your birthday is April 3, your number from step two is 13, which is corresponds to the Death tarot card.
