Birthday Tarot Spread Part 1

 The yearly date celebrating the birth of me and Emberly occurs on the same day as Easter Sunday, this year. We were born on the same day April twelfth, with only a year between us. Being close in age allows us to become more than just sisters. I see Emberly as a close friend, one that many see as the optimist to my sarcasm; leading me to embark on a tarot spread that focuses on a reading dedicated to a person’s special day.

The traditional birthday spread consists of eight cards broken into two rows with the first row of five cards and the bottom row of three. The first card drawn represents the theme from the past year either in health, career, or family. The second card is connected to the first card, showing the obstacles that stood in your way that were created from the last year. The third card is your hidden strength, that are used to solve the problems at hand.

The fourth card shows the best strategies to overcoming problems in the past dealing with events, people, or situations. What you look forward to in your love life is card number five, and what’s awaiting you in your career track is card number six. The seventh card shows how to grow as a person, and the final card is what will be waiting for you in the next year.

Birthday Tarot Meaning I decided to give this tarot spread a try and performed a reading for Emberly. Her cards were The Sun, Strength, Two of Swords, The Page of Swords, Five of Cups, Six of Cups, Seven of Cups, and Eight of Cups. The cards shows that in the past year, Emberly has been focused on herself and the positivity she creates in the world, yet her obstacles is listening to her inner strength.

She needs to give herself a moment to reflect over a situation instead of lashing out due to her emotions. Her inner strength is her balance between intelligence and emotions reflected in this reading of only swords and cups, which reflect air or intelligence and cups reflecting water or emotions.

A past loss or heartache is affecting love in the future she must learn to let go but for both love and career learn the lessons taught to her in the past. Her seventh card is tied to her inner strength and that she needs to learn to reflect before acting. Her final card shows that now she will face tough times, but a light will soon arrive to chase away the darkness. Interesting that her last four cards are a run of cups, meaning that they will all play a part in creating a brighter future for her

Many people either look forward to their birthday or loathe it. They see it as a reminder that they are a year older, making them focus on the negative aspects. Thinking of goals, they have yet to reach and if they are happy with their life now. Others see it as a celebrating focusing on what will come in the coming year and what they have accomplished in the previous year. In our case the day marks the union of our special pact a strong bond between sisters that will never fade with time.

Now, shush, I’m trying to read, Luna
