Lifetime Cards

I finally got my own copy of Who Are You in the Tarot? and it has been wonderful! While I’ve known my soul card (Strength) for a while, this book takes it much deeper and shows me my entire “constellation” within the tarot. I find it both frustrating and typical that my personality and soul card would be the same, and also that they would land on a number whose card is debated. While 8 could be either Strength or Justice, I decided to stick with Strength. Partly because this is how I have always known my card, but also because the book goes with the assumption that 8 = Strength.

VIII Strength

Personality Card: 8 – Strength
The Personality Card indicates personality characteristics that you develop easily and lessons that you learn early in your life as they seem to resonate with your essential nature

Soul Card: 8 – Strength
The Soul Card shows your soul purpose: those qualities in yourself that you must express and use in order to feel fulfilled in whatever you do


XVII The Star

Hidden Factor / Teacher Card: 17 – The Star
Mine is a nighttime card, making it slightly dark.


Eight of Wands   Eight of Cups   Eight of Swords   Eight of Pentacles

Lessons and Opportunities Cards: The 8s of the Minor Arcana
“These cards define the kinds of situations in which you are most likely to encounter your blocks and challenges, as well as your personal gifts and opportunities. Through the experiences indicated by these cards, you learn the lessons necessary to develop your personality and the opportunities most likely to express your soul purpose.”


Two of Swords

Zodiacal Lesson and Opportunity Card: Two of Swords
reveals my “fundamental, natural response to the basic challenges of life”


While so much of this information is dead-on, I’ve decided not to write up / re-write interpretations of the cards here. The book tells me so much, and as I read about each card, I know that it is true. So deeply true that it brings me to tears.
