Birth cards can be identified with the numbers found on your birthdate. With some basic math and a little magick, you will discover the card that truly represents you.

For instance, if your birthday is August 5, 1964, add 8 + 5 + 1 + 9 + 6 + 4 = 33. Since the sum is greater than 22 (the total number of cards in the major arcana), reduce the number by adding the sum’s digits: 3 +  3 = 6 – The Lovers. What you get will be your birth card.
