Your Soul Path & Personality

The tarot is complex once you start studying it.  It incorporates many sources, including astrology, numerology, the kaballah and meaningful symbology.  The number of each card is significant, i.e. the fives are all about change and the nines show it’s time to reassessment.  Aces are new beginnings and tens are the end of a cycle.
To work out your personality (what you have to learn this lifetime) add the numbers in your date of birth together, i.e:
Birth date: 10th February 1972
10 + 02 + 1972 = 1984
1 + 9 + 8 + 4 = 22

Card (22) is ‘The Fool’ in the Tarot.

Now you can think about what lessons you have learnt from your archetype.  ‘The Fool’ lessons:-

1. To journey to new and unchartered territories by travelling and emmigrating
2. To plunge into new experiences, develop myself and be open to adventure by world travel, temping, working at events, exhibitions and markets.
3. Taking a ‘leap of faith’ and trusting success by starting new business
4. Living a carefree life, not worrying about tomorrow: the party years,  with no responsibilities and a disposable income!
5. Following your heart no matter how impulsive by choosing advante-gard, extraordinary jobs with no set income or pension plan
6. Having courage and taking risks.  Backpacking around the world on your own.

If your personality number is only one digit, your personality is the same as your soul path.  If there are two numbers, add them together to work out your soul path.  This path the spiritual essence you lead in all lifetimes, your inner wisdom and teacher, i.e:

For example: 2 + 2 = 4, so my card is 4 and the Emporer.

The soul path of ‘The Emporer’ means you are a natural born leader.  Psychologists believe some people are born with a “business gene” that gives them a curious personality and entrepreneurial spirit.  These people are risk takers, but if they grow up in the wrong environment it can lead them into some dangerous situations.  Imagine having that spirit if you were living in a criminal underworld.  Look out, here comes trouble!
Emporer souls have a controlling ability, they are decisive and authoritative. They instinctively know how to get to the top.
Emporers live according to the rules, but also like making their own rules. They aren’t afraid to make decisions for others, who may respect them for it and allow it. They can be defensive of their territory. Emporers have to learn to control their temper and respect others’ opinions.  They also need to learn to be disciplined.  Someone once told me that people on the Emporer soul path have the hardest time, but I put it down to being the toughest!
Once you know which soul path you are on, spend some time looking at your soul card, noticing how you feel and react to this card.  If you would like to learn more, I run regular tarot workshops in Aspendale and online.  Please find my contact details by clicking on this link:
