How to Find the Tarot Card that Rules the Decan of Your Sun


3 of Wands

We each have a card that rules the decan of our Sun.

The astrological signs have 30 degrees. Those 30 degrees are further divided into 3 ten degree segments called decans.

Using Aries as an example

  • 00° through 9° 59′ Aries is the 1st decan.
  • 10° through 19° 59′ Aries is the 2nd decan.
  • 20° through 29° 59′ Aries is the 3rd decan.

This process repeats for all of the other signs.

By looking at the degree of your Sun you can find which decan it is in.

The decan of my Sun is ruled by the 3 of Wands. Which tarot card rules the decan of your Sun?

    4 of Cups. Quite accurate. Always pursuing knowledge. Passive means going out, get input, feel the world – and then back to evaluate and bring the feelings into the right scope before going out again. If not I get all stressed up and choke on life itself.

    • When I draw this card in a tarot reading it often signifies that I am bored – what do you think of boredom in relationship to the 4 of cups as your decan ruler?
