What's your 2024 tarot card?

Happy New Year! It is that time of year when the collective is full of hope. The new year is a blank slate and we have an opportunity to make plans for the year ahead.


What is your 2024 tarot card theme?

For years now I have calculated my tarot year card. I came up with it when I learned about the Tarot Birth Card through the Tarot School. However, later I learned that Mary Greer wrote extensively about Tarot Year Cards in her book, Who Are You in the Tarot? Haha, great minds think alike?


Every new year we are presented with blessings, challenges, and lessons. 2024 is no different. Knowing our Tarot Year Card helps us to focus on the wisdom that presents itself during the year. It helps us to be prepared and to be more objective when situations arise.

Every year we are presented with blessings, challenges, and lessons. Going through it all turns into our wisdom.

What are Tarot Year Cards?

The idea behind Tarot Year Cards is that for each year of our life there is a corresponding tarot card. The tarot card comes from the Major Arcana and it represents a theme one will experience that particular year. I was so intrigued by this concept that I created a spreadsheet to find out my Tarot Year Card from birth (Tarot Birth Card) until my 100th year. This exercise revealed that we go through ten year cycles. The tarot cards come up in chronological order for ten years and then reset on the 11th year. For example let's look at 14 years in my own cycle. I chose 14 so you can see two years before the cycle starts and two years after the cycle ends.


What is the collective Tarot Card Theme for 2024?

The collective Tarot Card theme for 2024 is Strength.

Conviction, Persistence, Endurance  


Strength is 2024 collective tarot card theme

The year of Strength brings you the gift of conviction. Trust your gut, take a deep breath, and with persistence spiral into synchronicity. It is a great time to practice patience with yourself and others. Your endurance skills will be put to the test.


How do I calculate my Tarot Year Card?

You may be asking yourself, what is my 2024 tarot card? The calculation is pretty easy and most people can do it in their heads, but not me, haha.


To calculate your tarot year card use a birthdate:

The month + day.

Example: August 20th

Numerically it is 08 + 20.

Then add 08 +20 to desired year.

I will use 2024.

08+20+2024=2052.

Reduce the sum to 22 or less.

2052 = 2+0+5+1 =9 =

The Hermit

Perspective, Retreat, Introspection

As a Gemini rising I'm extremely curious and inquisitive. This led me to create a tarot year card spreadsheet. See excerpt above. I did it from my birth year all the way to 100. I recommend you do this exercise for yourself.


I learned that some Major Arcana cards will appear as a Year Card Theme over and over, while others will never come up. For me, this means I work with the themes of Justice and The Hanged Man in every 10 year cycle of my life. While in 100 years I will not work with the themes of The High Priestess or Judgement. It just means that in this lifetime I already possess the energies of the High Priestess and Judgement. While the energies of Justice and The Hanged Man are the ones that will be a consistent work in progress for me.

Some Major Arcana cards will appear as your Tarot Year Card over and over, while others will never come up.

Which tarot cards come up the most for you? Those themes are your strengths. Which ones don't show up at all? Those are your life lessons.


What are my Tarot Year Card Themes?

Add up your numbers and find your 2024 year theme below. Please note: there are no good or bad year cards. As you can see from the chart above 2021 was a Devil year for me. The themes are Indulgence, Limitations, Vices. I was aware of this throughout the year and it helped me to regulate myself so I remained balanced. It also led me to the conclusion that indulgence in moderation is a great thing. As for vices, I challenged myself to switch out destructive vices for more constructive ones.


Coming up in 2024, I'm entering the third year of my ten year cycle with The Hermit. The themes are Perspective, Retreat, Introspection. It is the perfecct theme for me this year as I have a big project I'm working on and retreat and introspection will come in handy.
