Introducing basic Numerology. Did you ever add up your birth numbers? Of course, you did! Let’s chose a random date, 28 February 1982, for instance. 28 February 1982. 2+8=10=1+0=1. February=2. 1+9+8+2=20=2+0=2. 1+2+2=5.
Traditionally, The Hierophant, also known as the High Priest, is numbered 5 (V – Roman number) in the Tarot deck. So, some say, that would be your Tarot card. It is pretty entertaining, isn’t it? But completely irrelevant. Every universal (Astronomical, Astrological, Numerological, ‘esoteric’ or ‘spiritual’ if you do not mind) year begins with the Spring Equinox about March 19, 20 or 21 in the Northern Hemisphere. The first day of the year coincides with the first day of Aries. We suppose we are in the Age of Pisces, but some claims we are already in the Age of Aquarius. However, we do not know for sure. We only know that an astrological age is a product of the Earth’s slow precessional rotation and lasts for 2160 years. We do not actually know what year is this. Being the year 2017 of the Age of the Pisces is unlikely. We currently use the Gregorian calendar which is a so-called civil and administrative calendar, nothing but a convention. Proper to track the time and pay your taxes, but inappropriate for esoteric operations such as Numerology. So, don’t bother, 28 February 1982 means absolutely nothing. You can ride a bicycle, but don’t expect to get you to the Moon.
