Tarot Birth Identities: The Fours

DEATH ~ EMPEROR  ::  XIII ~ IV   ::  13 ~ 4

Welcome to my Tarot Birth Card Identity Blog!  This blog is intended to be a simple overview of Tarot Birth Cards, a casual and concise walk-through of the groupings of Birth Cards to express some of the ways that they can contribute vital components to your identity.  Also, I will layer in Birth Card Preludes to express the whole of each Birth Card grouping in a short statement — Turbo Tarot Reading I call it. Short, sweet, and oftentimes deceptively simple.

I find that these Preludes, as I like to call them, turbo-readings of sorts, are best stated afterward, later to be utilized as initial triggers to remind oneself back to how the Birth Cards can tenor and integrate an overall expression from a single, natural voice.  Enjoy finding your own path with these, and I look forward to hearing your own, personal “trigger” Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of what you experience when you work with them..

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos like the Grounding WIth the Family of the Fours.  Enjoy the correspondences of the numbers as they flow back and forth between the Major Arcana in the Birth Cards and each of the suits of the Minor Arcana of the same number, and as well your Courts in the videos.  Also, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well Your Royal Court characters.

So, to start for example with this 2-card Birth Card combo, the 1st card can represent a person’s Outer Expression.  The 2nd card can represent their Inner Expression.  So for example with the Birth Card Chart combo of a XIII, IV; 13, 4; Death ~ The Emperor:

13 is the Outer Expression              4 is the Inner Expression

A Prelude of your own making can create and make your own brand of an Added Incentive that is integrated, hides in plain sight as something simply natural, and /or is simply inherent from your perspective.

Example: 4’s Birth Card Prelude: With Death ~ The Emperor as your Birth Cards you might have the ability to experience transformational senses of place?  Hold that thought, and . . . let’s get started walking through the the 4’s shall we?

[ XIII ~ IV  ]   [ 13 ~ 4 ]
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 4, and thus correspond with the Fours in general, and the Grounding WIth the Family of the Fours video on the Videos page of my Mystereum YouTube Channel.

The Death card represents your Outer Expression.  This is how most people ‘see’ you in the world.  The Death card is known for its abilities to renew, rebirth, and regenerate. It’s a bit like the 8th House in Astrology — sex, death, and regeneration. No wonder orgasm in the French is le petit morte, the little death. With the Death card your Outer Expression is represented by the experience the re-growth of things that replace decay. Are pregnant with ideas?  Do you keep sight of their refreshing qualities?

The Emperor represents your Inner Expression.  This is a side of you that only your closest family and friends ‘see’ — notice a them with the Inner Expression aspect?  With the Emperor as your Inner Expression, is it symbolized that you have an intrinsic sense of home and place and environment? — very Taurus and Libra, and some may take issue with this, though also very Sagittarian.  Do you have a genius driven by both place in general and your placement within most any situation?

4’s Birth Card Prelude: With Death ~ The Emperor as your Birth Cards you are graced and imbued with abilities to experience transformational senses of place. Do you see how this simple Prelude statement can express the 2 characters together as facets of one personality?:

Death ~ You have abilities to experience the transformational.
With The Emperor, astute senses of place.

Putting them back together again: Do you have developed abilities to experience transformational senses of place?  Enjoy your Birth Card Prelude as the cadence of a heartbeat to energize the things you do.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog, and find it useful in your process as you further emancipate And further enhance, reinforce, and strengthen the clarity of your own, personal, valuable Tarot voice!

Jupiter’s Blessings,

    Jordan –

    You definitely have the mind-set to play a great sax! It takes a certain kind of soul. 🙂 Right now I follow Charley Langer – hoping that he does well!
