Seshat's Seven

Just as one word cannot describe the complexities of your character, the meaning of one card does not convey the many facets of your personality. In fact, there are seven major cards that describe your personality; each card representing one aspect of your uniqueness. In other words, the seven cards that come after your birthday card are the cards that tell your life-story.
