Your Birth Card

The Birth Card, which is similar to the zodiac sign, is the most important symbol of who we are and represents our individualism and significance. Through our Birth Card we can discover many aspects of our personality, as well as trials and limitations, our gifts and opportunities, professional tendencies, hidden strengths and much more. All cards have both challenges and blessings in any given lifetime and no one card is superior to any other.

Understanding our relationships, whether romantic or professional, is greatly enhanced using the Cards of Illumination™ system. We can see what type of partner we might be attracted to and how we may relate to specific connections.
