How To Perform a Date of Birth Tarot Spread

Date of Birth Tarot Spread Layout

To perform this date of birth Tarot spread, there are a few things you need to do before reading the cards. Firstly, you must be aware of your sun, moon, and rising sign. If you have not discovered these astrological signs, turn to books and websites to work them out! Sometimes, people are unable to work out their rising signs, as it relies on knowing the time they were born. You can skip the fourth card in the spread if this is you.

You must also work out your date of birth major arcana card. You can do this by breaking your date of birth down and adding the digits up until you get to a number between 1 and 21.

Let’s look at an example to help you work out your date of birth major arcana card. If you were born on the 7th of January 1996, you would break down the numbers like so: 7 + 1 + 1 + 9 + 9 +6 = 33. The 33 is then broken down and added up to make 6. This means that your date of birth Tarot card is the Lovers, as this is card number 6.

Once you know your date of birth major arcana card, pull it out of the deck and place it at the top of the spread. Then, shuffle the deck and pull out five more cards.

Card One: Date of Birth Major Arcana Card

This card reveals your path in life. It represents who you are and what your goals and values are in life.

Take a moment to reflect on the meaning of this card. Are you being true to the meaning of your date of birth major arcana card?

Card Two: How To Embrace Your Sun Sign

The second card pulled in this date of birth Tarot spread reflects your sun sign and your relationship with it. Your sun sign represents your core personality. It shows you what your overall attitude toward life is.

When reflecting on this card, make sure you are linking your sun sign to the meaning of it. Let’s say you are a Capricorn and have the Hermit card in this position. Because Capricorns are driven by ambition and success, the Hermit suggests that you should turn inward and explore hidden knowledge to move you forward in life.

Card Five: Strengths

The last two cards in this date of birth tarot spread show you the strengths and weaknesses of your birth chart. The fifth card shows you how your birth chart enhances your life and what goes well.

Perhaps you are a confident and bubbly Leo. Let’s say you receive the Fool in this position. This shows you that your sun sign enhances your ability to take risks and embrace new adventures.

Card Six: Weaknesses

The last card represents how your birth chart may negatively affect your life. All signs have positive and negative traits, so this card will reveal the negative traits in your birth chart that you need to work on.

Asking the Tarot: How Can I Connect With My Birth Chart?

Sometimes, there are aspects of our birth chart that we neglect. For example, you may be repressing your moon sign, and this may be causing issues for you.

Ask the Tarot, ‘how can I connect with my birth chart?’ and pull out a card. The card you receive may reflect the energy of one of your signs, suggesting you need to focus on this side of yourself.
