2024 Tarot Card of the Year: The Star

In 2024, the prophetic Star Tarot card hovers above fragile Earth; a cosmic herald is arriving. The stars of 2024 will emerge from “out of nowhere” bearing a simple, unifying message that strikes a resonant chord across all divisions.

The Star Tarot card, number 17 in the major arcana. We chose this card for the year because it is a card of hope. It signals a renewal of hope and optimism, which we all need in 2024 for what we call The Year of Transcendent Leadership.

We supplement many of our astrology readings with Tarot card draws. They add nuance to what the stars tell us. They empower our introspection with cues and clues, like journal prompts.

The Tarot card of the year provides insights into the energies and themes that may influence your life. Take your study one step further and draw your personal 2024 Tarot card, explained below.

Find Your Personal 2024 Tarot Card of the Year

Finding your personal Tarot card of the year involves a simple calculation based on your birthdate and the current year.

Below is a step-by-step guide to discover your 2024 Tarot card using two methodologies popular in Tarot, one that uses only major arcana cards 1-9 and the other which uses all the major arcana cards, 1-22. Choose which method appeals to you, there is no “right or wrong” answer in Tarot. Intuition is a key tenet of Tarot, so choose which method feels right for you, or try both!

Method 1 to discover your personal Tarot card of the year

This method highlights Tarot cards 1-9, which you find in the following three steps:

1: Combine the numbers of your birthdate down to a single digit.

For example, if your birthdate is May 10, 2003, you would add:

5 (month) + 1 + 0 (day) +2 + 0 + 0 + 3 (year) = 11

Then, add the digits of your result to arrive at a single digit: 1 + 1 = 2

2: Add the year to your single digit.

For 2024, add:
2 (your single digit from your birthdate) + 2 + 0 + 2 + 4 (year) = 10

If the result is a double-digit number, add the digits together until you arrive at a single-digit number.
1 + 0 = 1

3. Find your 2024 Tarot card!

Every number from 1 to 9 corresponds to a major arcana card in a Tarot deck, listed below. Using the example above, your personal 2024 Tarot card is The Magician.

Note there are more major arcana cards than listed above: Cards 10 through Card 22 (The Fool, also known as Card 0), but they are not single numbers, which are needed to find your personal year Tarot card, and there is no mathematical equation would arrive at 0 for that card to be used!

Method 2 to discover your personal Tarot card of the year

Same as Method 1 above, only you do not reduce to a single digit and you match your number to Tarot cards 1-23.

Follow these steps:

1: Combine the numbers of your birthdate.

For example, if your birthdate is May 10, 2003, you would add:

5 (month) + 1 + 0 (day) +2 + 0 + 0 + 3 (year) = 11

2: Add the year to your digit.

For 2024, add:

11 (your birthdate digit) + 2 + 0 + 2 + 4 (year) = 19

If your number is 23 or over, then add your single digits together to arrive at a single digit. For example, 2 + 3 = 5.

3. Find your 2024 Tarot card!

Every number from 1 to 22 corresponds to a major arcana card in a Tarot deck, listed below. Using the examples above, for 19 the personal Tarot card is The Sun and for 5 it is The Heirophant.

Your 2024 Tarot card meaning

Once you know your 2024 Tarot card of the year, you can explore its meaning. (Use our Tarot cards database to find the meaning of the cards listed above plus any of the Tarot deck’s 78 cards!)

Exploring the meaning of your 2024 Tarot card can help you gain insight into the themes you can expect for the year. Learning the energies associated with your card can help inform how you navigate those energies and any challenges you face.

Tarot is one tool of self discovery you can use in 2024

You can go a step further and do a reading for your year using one of our suggested Tarot spreads (our Love Tarot Spreads are very popular!)

If you’re new to Tarot or want more analysis, you could see a professional Tarot reader because interpretation can vary. Remember, though, Tarot is not prediction of what will happen, but guidance for how to react to things that happen or an answer to a question you have or a situation you’re experiencing.

Many people draw a single Tarot card each day, too, and find that helpful. One card pulls are quick, straightforward readings you can use as a daily guidance. One card pulls provide a simple answer or insight while Tarot spreads are more detailed and your personal 2024 Tarot card represents your theme for the year. You can use our Tarot randomizer (below) to draw a card any time!
