Do you know your Tarot Birth Card?

Numerology and Tarot are age-old friends, they intimately connected, and when used together, can be powerfully revealing!

Every single card in a Tarot deck is associated with a particular number. From the Lovers to the Tower to the World Card, they all have a numerological equivalent. Most of the time, especially in the major arcana, these numbers are actually written on the cards themselves.

If you’re already familiar with Numerology, you probably understand a little about the power, meaning and symbolism contained in the numbers 1 – 9. Guess what…These same meanings hold true for the cards in a Tarot deck too! So if you already know your Life Path Number (and have a Tarot deck on hand) it’s very easy to work out which Tarot card is most closely aligned with your personal numerology…

BUT…This post is a little bit different from the rest of the Tarot Birth Cards because it’s all about the Master Number 11.


Life Path 11: Tarot Birth Card –  Justice (Or is it?)

Tarot Card JusticePinBecause in Numerology, 11 is a Master Number it’s treated differently, and the meaning of the Justice Card, and the entire Master Number frequency don’t align quite as fully as they do for the other cards.

For this reason, it’s necessary to look at both the Justice Card, and the High Priestess, which is card Number 2 (1 + 1 = 2).


The Justice Card depicts a woman sitting in a chair, in front of rich purple drapery. She sits between two pillars, which represent law and order. She wears a golden crown topped by squares, which symbolizes her mastery over this domain, and the rule of logic.

Her right-hand holds a sword, giving her the firmness of thought and act that she needs to make final decisions. It’s also double-edged, reminding us that all actions have consequences. Her left-hand grasps a set of scales, which represents the balance of justice. Yet here in the left, we are reminded that intuition and instinct must be balanced with the logical mind.

The deepest iteration of this card is truth. Yet the personification of Justice in this card, isn’t battling or struggling to uncover it. The sword she carries isn’t a weapon of war – it is a tool. She is still, present, focused. The truth she seeks comes from within.

People with this Tarot birth card possess this same quiet inner strength and wisdom. They can often need to balance their needs with the needs of others – their truth with the truth of others – and being typically highly empathic, this is no walk in the park.

Like the columns on the card, some kind of firm structure, like routine and good personal boundaries will serve them best.

Ultimately, the law of cause and effect that the Justice card symbolizes is something that Master Number 11s need to understand fully. Stepping into their own power (and living with the consequences of what that means for them) is their life path.

High Priestess

The High Priestess is the psychic of the tarot. Sitting coolly in front of a long, hanging curtain, she is veiled from passers-by and sits as the guardian of mystical realms.

The High Priestess is a person who knows how to tap into higher powers to get beneath the surface of what’s really going on. An expert in her own soul’s calling, she is also able to tune into the frequency and energy of others – something people can find wildly attractive… or just plain spooky. She’ll listen to what you have to say, pause for an awkwardly-long silence, and then get to the heart of what’s really going on, as if by magic.




⇢ You have a keen sense of your own truth.
⇢ You are an emotion-led person who ‘feels the world’, but you are not a slave to your feelings.
⇢ You are empathic but can switch this sense on and off.
⇢ You believe strongly in doing things fairly.
⇢ You are an incredibly loyal friend and partner
⇢ You are honest
⇢ You believe in living your life with integrity (and if you don’t then you really begin to suffer.

Key Challenges of the Justice Tarot Birth Card:

These are similar to the traits which are emphasized in a Tarot reading when the Justice Card shows up reversed.

⇢ You may sometimes face situations where others try to take advantage of you.
⇢ At times, you may resist taking responsibility for your own shortcomings.
⇢ You may be judgmental of others, especially when you feel they’re mot doing things that are morally right.
⇢ You may have a very harsh inner-critic, which prevents you from thriving in ways that you really should.

Justice Tarot Birth Card Love & Compatibility:

⇢ Justice people can relate well to almost anybody, however, their highly sensitive nature may struggle with those who are very outspoken or have dominating personalities.
⇢ Your ability to give generously and lovingly to the people you are close to means that you’ll always put relationships first. However, there will be times in your life when you’ll need to put your own inner work first – and your partner will need to hold you through this.
⇢ You’re an amazing person to have as a lover or partner!

Justice Tarot Birth Card Career, Work & Lifestyle Ideas:

⇢ Any healing modality would suit you. Your empathic, generous, loving attitude to life means you’d be an incredible wellness facilitator.
⇢ Working in mediation, or bringing together groups of people would utilize your mix of clear decisiveness and relational skills.


Obviously, you can’t gain a true and complete picture of somebody through their Tarot Birth Card!

You are not simply your birth card, your Life Path Number, or anything else you can figure out by adding up the numbers in your life, you are a complex and beautiful creature formed from a myriad of different influences. These are archetypes or universal energy types which move through people in different ways.

But sometimes it can be incredibly powerful to have symbols, numbers, words, cards – anything at all – to hold onto, to help make sense of what we are doing and why!
