For anybody interested in finding their birth cards in tarot?

https://www.tarotschool.com/Calculator.html

I am "The Emperor" and "Death".
:king: :skull:

Imagery — Things to Look at and Contemplate:

Postures — riding / sitting
(Changing vs. maintaining, future vs. present)

Colors — black and white / red and orange
(Stark and minimal vs. passionate and full-blown)

Clothing — armor only / armor, robe and crown
(Personal, intimate and absolute vs. formal, ceremonial and imperious)

Symbols —
horse / throne
(things as they will be vs. things as they are)

banner / orb and scepter
(different symbols of the same higher authority in whose name both perform their respective functions)

Landscapes — complex / simple
(detailed reality vs. abstract principle)



Astrology:

Scorpio (Death) — dark, deep, cold, seductive, frightening

Aries (Emperor) — bright, clear, hot, attractive, reassuring



Predilection:

Anarchy vs. Order

Democracy vs. Hierarchy

Necessity vs. Logic


Death and The Emperor have in common the qualities of polar absolutes: both are crystal clear in the definition of their function, territory and authority; neither can be moderated or softened in the performance of their duties; each balances the other perfectly — one deconstructs and wipes away, the other organizes and establishes. They are both utterly dependable.

The Emperor makes Death lawful, and gives him pride of place in the scheme of things. Death makes everything mutable, so that the law itself is constantly changing, adaptive and alive.

The Emperor is armored, a warrior in the service of the light. His job and responsibility is to make sense of things, to bring order out of chaos, to refute the bogus, to make peace between the usual and the exception. The Emperor permits no secret or special powers to challenge the authority of his law. His motto is: "There's a perfectly good explanation for everything."

Death is also armored, a warrior in the service of the dark. His job is to establish the edge of the known, and to push everything over that edge into mystery. He unfurls the banner of the realm of darkness, in which the rules are so different from those of the kingdom of light that they seem like chaos. He is the master of the unknown and the fear and adventure of the unknown, and his banner is the veil of the unknown.

Death pulls the rug out from under the feet of all comfortable assumptions and established procedures, and sends them tumbling into the abyss. He is the ultimate anarchist against whose activity all laws are meant to protect. He makes the possible The Empress' continuous production of life, and The Emperor's continuous organization of life, by removing it as fast as it is created. Without the bottomless pit of mystery, the known and knowable universe would choke on itself and grind to a halt.

Unintegrated and imperfectly realized, The Emperor is a tyrant and stick-in-the-mud, controlling and manipulative, unable to let things take their course or go their own way. He equates mystery with ignorance, and can be afraid of the dark. What he doesn't know or can't account for he believes does not exist. He resents criminals and upholds the established order.

Death can be vicious and gratuitously cruel. He will make false claims and promises, and spread ruin and upheaval wantonly. He has no fear of consequences, and his reasons for things can be akin to madness. He supports any kind of change for its own sake, cloaking anarchist impulses in a cracked or specious reasonableness.

Together, they make life both orderly and fresh, peaceful without tyranny, prosperous without stagnation, always believable but constantly fascinating. Together, their motto is: "The only things you can depend on are death and taxes."

Justice / High Priestess

Imagery — Things to Look at and Contemplate:

Postures — both seated and facing forward
(Their actions are in the form of observing thinking, and speaking.
Both are direct and straightforward.)

Colors — red, green, purple, gold / blue, white, yellow
(Outward, passionate, involved vs. inward, calm, withdrawn)

Clothing — both are robed and crowned.
(Both are formal, ceremonial, and imperious; public vs. impersonal)

Symbols —

thrones and crowns
(strong conviction of personal authority & correctness)

pillars and veils
(guardians and initiators – gateways to the unknown and the hidden)

sword and scales / scroll and cross
(sharp & demanding vs. deep & permissive)

Foreground Figures — blond haired / dark haired (clear vs. obscure)



Astrology:

Libra (Justice) — balance, the center, no excess, no exaggeration

Moon (High Priestess) — cyclic, inclusive, nothing left out or rejected



Predilection:

Analytical vs. Contemplative

Harsh vs. Gentle

Loud vs. Silent


Justice and The High Priestess have in common that everything is accounted for. Justice examines everything for flaws in order to find its flawless essence. The High Priestess knows the secret of everything as it is in order to encompass everything.

Justice demands of everything its true nature and essence, with nothing concealed, withheld or distorted. It tirelessly weighs and measures, satisfied with nothing less than the clear, the absolute, and the irreduceable in everything.

Justice is adamant and uncompromising with its sword and scales, loud and clear in its redness, fearless and certain on its throne, guarding the entrance to the temple of the secrets of perfection.

The High Priestess finds what is the same in everything, the secret unifying core hidden in the endless variation of detail. She patiently discovers in all differences what is true, original and undisturbed in everything.

The High Priestess is accepting and inclusive with her scroll and cross, calm and quiet in her blueness, fearless and certain on her throne, guarding the entrance to the temple of final knowledge.

Unintegrated and imperfectly realized, Justice can be given to rage and haste; it can become arrogant and hypercritical, aggrieved and vengeful, or uncertain and vacillating.

The High Priestess can be a conceited know-it-all, moody and taciturn, secret and unapproachable; she can be despairing and lost, or given to excess and careless of consequences.

Together, they dream of the perfect, the ultimate, and pursue it in more than one kind of undertaking. They continuously seek the truth, and in its service they are drawn to esoteric studies and unusual paths.

^ You have the same tarot birth cards as Melania Trump.

No wonder she married The Emperor (Donald Trump). The Emperor represents fire and holds the Sun symbol (Ankh Cross), and The High Priestess represents water and holds a crescent moon symbol.

As they say: "Opposites Attract.", fire and water make steam. ;)

So Emperor Trump and his High Priestess Melania are governing our world right now the way that the sun and the moon governs the earth.

Did I mention that Donald Trump was actually born on a lunar eclipse?

Tower / Chariot

Imagery — Things to Look at and Contemplate:

Postures — falling / standing
(melodrama, upset, crisis vs. poise, balance, control)

Colors — foreground: grey / green
background: black (dark blue) / yellow
details: red & blue, orange & yellow / light blue & gold, black & white
(stark and frightening vs. cheerful and confident)

Clothing — loose robes and wild hair / armor and crown
(personal and unready vs. formal and prepared)

Symbols — tower, crown and cloud (or smoke), lightning & flames / chariot, sphinxes, river and city
(vertical, up-in-the-air, unstable – danger and drama in progress vs. horizontal, grounded, safe – danger and drama left behind)

Landscapes — simple / complex
(intense and immediate vs. patient and long-term)



Astrology:

Mars (Tower) — brilliant, flashing, in-the-moment; violent emotions and activity; male sexual potency; pride, war; full speed ahead

Cancer (Chariot) — self-sufficiency & protection; nurture & care; coolness & courage; focus & determination; initiates activity but steps sideways



Predilection:

Hot in everything vs. Cool in everything

Direct in everything vs. Indirect in everything

Instinctual action vs. Considered action

Protect by confrontation vs. Protect by getting out of the way


The Tower and The Chariot share the issues of balance, control, energy, solidity and war. They contrast in their ways of handling every issue. The violent overthrow of rigid and ambitious structure contrasts with the invisible battle for balance and self-control. External contrasts with internal energy. The vulnerability of fortification contrasts with the durability of character.

The Tower is the tumultuous power at the center of everything. It is the constant potential for an occasional experience of the unexpected, the violent and sudden disruption of normal conditions; the power of complete surprise and the feeling of head-over-heels. The job of The Tower is to uproot dug-in positions and vested interests, to be the event horizon beyond which lies the unpredictable and unaccountable. The Tower is the end of complacency.

The Chariot is the steady flow of ceaseless intention that is the warrior in everything. Its job is to harness all competing impulses and energies, to overcome all obstacles and resistances, and against all odds, carry everything to its destiny. On this journey, everything becomes what it must become and nothing is lacking.

Unintegrated and imperfectly realized, The Tower can be capricious, frightening and disastrous. It can rob effort of its proper reward, and destroy faith in both justice and mercy. It can be melodramatic, or it can be pointless, random and gratuitously painful.

The Chariot can vacillate and side-step, or turn tail and run. It can be vainglorious and posturing, or overly sensitive and ineffectual. It can lose heart in the middle of a task, and mope.

Together, they are afraid of nothing, can stand successfully against any opponent, either internal or external, and when the time comes, they will rise to the ultimate challenge and be equal to it.

I started learning Tarot in July. V nice c:

So what you're saying is I should continue my work towards world domination?

As the spartans would say: "if.".

I use to know what I was but since I forgot the link was helpful lol

The Star / Strength


Imagery — Things to Look at and Contemplate:

Postures and Gestures — kneeling and emptying / bending and controlling
(relaxed and gentle vs. focused and strong)

Colors — flesh tones and blue / white, yellow and orange
(ease vs. intensity)

Clothing — nude / robed and girdled
(unselfconscious vs. highly self-aware)

Symbols —
Star: pitchers and pouring streams make patterns in the pool and on the ground that balance the pattern of the stars above
(the effortless equality of Above and Below, near and far, humanity and nature)

Strength: girdle of roses, lemniscate, controlling hands of female figure, teeth, mane and tucked tail of lion
(the difference in opposition between the human and the natural, and the constant tension between them)

Foreground Figures —
Star: nude blonde goddess
(the same woman as in Strength but unopposed by any contradictory impulse)

Strength: lion and clothed blonde goddess
(visual allegory of the relationship between power and control)

Landscapes — prominent pool, sky, and stars with integrated foreground
figure / indistinct, unobtrusive landscape with prominent foreground figures
(the self-regulation of nature vs. the importance of effort)


Astrology:

Aquarius (Star) — peaceful and optimistic; visionary and original; open and approachable; virginal and trusting

Leo (Strength) — charismatic and energetic; loud, proud, powerful and willful; cheerful and confident; sexually potent


Predilection:

Optimistic and relaxed vs. Vigilant and concerned

Flexible and soft vs. Insistent and strong

Accepting vs. Demanding


The Star and Strength share a root in the creative motherhood of The Empress. The women in all three cards are one divine form in different costumes, with different tasks. To The Empress, all her children are beloved, and seen and treated equally. The Star sees benign beauty and goodness in nature and herself. She trusts what she sees and leaves it alone. Strength sees the raw, immediate power in nature and in herself. She controls and contains it like a dam works with a river.

The Star is remote, cool and calm. Strength is hot, intense and close. For the unclothed Star, the world and her own nature are fine as they are, and can only suffer from interference. For Strength, fully clothed, the world and her own nature need restraints to work properly.

The Star is the innate perfection in things, their natural rightness and goodness, and their connection with what is highest and deepest in the creative process. She fears nothing in nature because for her, there's nothing in nature to be afraid of. She sees nothing in nature to fix because nothing in nature is wrong. Her motto is "Leave things alone and they'll be alright." The job of The Star is to cooperate with the nature of things, to witness its perfection, and to resist the urge to improve it.

Strength is the two-fold power at the center of things, the expansive and the contractive power, force and form. She knows they must be kept in balance, and that takes constant vigilance and effort. She cannot press too hard on the source of power or she'll cut off its breath and make it weak. She cannot relax her grip on it, or it will expand violently and swallow her whole. The job of Strength is to keep the power of nature in check, and release it as needed and necessary.

Unintegrated and imperfectly realized, The Star can be amoral, eccentric and cranky. She may be undiscriminating, and unaware and in denial when things get broken or go wrong. She may routinely support lost causes and put herself in harms way, in the belief that she'll be OK no matter what. And she can be peevish, whiney, and aggrieved when things don't work out.

Strength can be moody, sullen and prone to fits of temper. She may eat too much or starve herself. She can be a voracious lover or become celibate without warning. She can go from baseless self-confidence to irrational timidity. She can make herself weak and frightened, a pussycat with a weak meow or she can be larger than life, throw her weight around, laugh, cry and howl at peak volume, a lion out of control.

Together they are graceful, beautiful, peaceful and strong, with their powers and talents in perfect balance and harmony, and all their virtues at the service of the world.
