It's the coming to a realization that something must change and in Bonnie's book, all the information that you need are right at your fingertips, using the archetypes of the 22 Major Arcana to guide you in understanding the path that you walk in this lifetime and to reach your full potential.
The way in which you figure out your Birth Cards is quite simple, using a system developed by The Tarot School, all you need to start with is the month, date and year that you were born. To illustrate this I will use my birth date in order to give you an idea of just how this is done. February 1st, 1966 which is then written like this:
The number is then used to figure out which Major Arcana cards are your birth cards, in this case mine are The Tower (16) and Chariot (6+1=7). All together, there are eleven Birth Card pairs and a one Birth Card trio, that each come with their own challenges as well as gifts.
This is where Bonnie's brilliance begins to shine, each pair is described in a way that is not only easy to understand but enlightening as well as quite useful to better understand not only ourselves but those around us and can even be used to bring clarification for clients we may work with during a tarot reading.Read more ›
Mary Greer has already written a book on birth cards entitled "Who Are You In the Tarot" but don't assume that is the final word on the subject nor that both books are one in the same. First of all, Cehovet has a different method of calculating your birthdate and for me, that changed my card. In Greer's method, my card would be Judgement - in Cehovet's, my card becomes Justice. (Although I could see how Greer's card worked for me, I do have to admit that I feel more of a connection with Justice - perhaps because I am a Libra rising.)
Once you have your birth card calculated, it's time to find out what this means for you! Cehovet starts out with basic information such as the keywords and an interpretation for the card and what that means for your life path.
She then offers ways to empower yourself through methods such as questioning (her questions have inspired me for some journaling work) as well as affirmations. I am a big fan of affirmations and I found the ones she offered to be creative and useful. For example, one of the ones for Justice that I liked and have been using is: "All of my decisions are authentic to who I am and what I believe." I love it!
She also offers rituals that you can use for each birth card. These are simple visualizations that anyone can do. There is no complicated mumbo jumbo - just easy to use methods to help you understand and work with the archetype.Read more ›
Karyn Easton's Tarot beautiful illustrations are the perfect compliment to Miss Cehovet's reader-friendly writing style. While the calculations (on Pages 10 & 11) for determining your birth cards are remarkably simple and easy to follow, Page 12 welcomes you into a crystal clear world of Tarot that is chock-full of sensible and easily attainable self-enlightenment.
Although "Tarot, Birth Cards and You" enables the reader to develop a clearer picture of their own needs and purpose, by working with the suggestions it can quickly and easily pave the way to a better understanding of your nearest and dearest family members, friends and lovers. Miss Cehovet also had the foresight to include a final section for recording your personal notes while they are still fresh in your mind. I endorse and highly recommend "Tarot, Birth Cards and You" to Tarot students and enthusiasts of all levels. In fact, I've purchased an extra copy for my clients waiting-room, because it's the perfect way to introduce potential students of the Tarot to the Tarot at their own pace! "Tarot, Birth Cards and You" is a superb first publication. I look forward to reading more volumes by Miss Cehovet, in the future!
