Referentiel Birth Chart: The 14 Tarot Birth Cards
Encounter your inner self with the Tarot of Marseille
A unique method of self-knowledge and personal development
The REFERENTIEL BIRTH CHART – the 14 Tarot Birth Cards
What is the Referentiel Birth Chart?
The Referential Birth Chart (RBC) is a method of personal development and growth based on the Tarot de Marseille. It helps us to get a better self-knowledge and to access our inner self through the symbolism of the Tarot.
Our RBC is calculated with our date of birth. From this calculation, we get 14 cards, also called “arcana” (13 major arcana and 1 minor arcana) placed in 14 houses. Each house has a symbolic meaning: my mission in life, my resources, my challenges, my heritage… The idea is to find what each arcana is saying and which advice it gives us.
We can compare the RBC to a symbolic representation of the cards that were given to us at birth.
How do we play them?
And how can we BETTER play them?
Who created the Referential Birth Chart (RBC)?
The founder of this method is Georges Colleuil, a French philosopher, linguist and author. He wrote many books on the therapeutic function of symbols, on the Tarot of Marseille, on mythology and how to work with our dreams.
He created the Referential Birth Chart during the 80’s.
He founded his own school (Ecole internationale Georges Colleuil) and is now teaching this method around the world.

How can the Referential Birth Chart help me ?
The Referential Birth Chart is a mirror of ourselves and an encounter with our inner self. It is a great tool for self-knowledge and personal development.
It can help us to better understand ourselves. In times of troubles or big changes, it helps us to understand what is going on in our lifes.
It can make us get conscious of our resources and of our mission in life. It may show us how to solve some issues we are facing. It can give us indications on how people see us and how we could better communicate. It depictes our inner conflits and tells us how we can solve them.
Each year, one of the arcana of our RBC is changing and is bringing a new energy in our chart. At the same time, it brings new challenges and new resources for this particular year. A focus on this arcana is always useful to understand what we are going through during this period of time.
The RBC’s 14 Houses:
House 1 : how I present myself to the others, my symbolic business card
House 2 : my quest
House 3 : my desire and my fears, my mental filters
House 4 : my life mission or life task
House 5 : what repeats in my life
House 6 : my main resources
House 7 : my main challenges
House 8 : my annual card, the energy for the year
House 9 : my deeper self, the achievement of my soul
House 10 : difficulties I shall experiment to grow
House 11 : my heritage, what I received from my family
House 12 : my legacy
House 13 : my paradox
House 14 : resources to overcome what repeats in my life
Tarot of Marseille
The Referential Birth Chart, composed of our 14 Tarot birth Cards, is based on the Tarot of Marseille, and more pricisely on the Grimaud version of the Tarot of Marseille.
The Tarot of Marseille is widely used in France and in many European countries. This is the ancestor of most tarots used nowadays in Europe.
There are many mysteries surrounding the origin of the Tarot of Marseille. You can find some information on the history of the Tarot of Marseille here.
My name is Mélanie and I am a certified practitioner of the Referential Birth Chart.
I was trained by Georges Colleuil, the creator of this tool, to learn how to use this unique method of self-knowledge and personal development.
Today, I put this knowledge into practice by conducting RBC sessions in English and in French to anyone interested to discover this unique approach of personal growth.
I am looking forward to accompany you through the arcana of the Tarot of Marseille.
Once we agreed on a schedule, I will send you your Referential Birth Chart by email. You will need to have your RBC in front of you during our session.
Be aware that this method is an exchange between the practioner and the consultant. You will take an active part to the session, express your feelings , explain and depict what you can see on the cards…
As a RBC practitioner, I will not give you the answers to your questions,
I will help you to find your own answers in yourself.
