Tarot and numerology go hand in hand. It’s often the recommended first thing to learn when getting into tarot divinations. In combination with suits and astrological associations, the breaking down of these elements is what makes the learning process easier for some.
How To Apply Numerology on Tarot?
What are the numbers in tarot? Which is the powerful number in numerology?
Learn more about significance of numerology… If you learn the meanings of the master numbers 1 to 10, you’ve got a head start with Tarot card reading.
First, we’re going to look at the usual interpretations of numerology numbers 1-10 in tarot, but also how to interpret repeating numbers for an extra dimension of interpretation in your spreads!
The Numbers In The Minor Arcana:
· Aces (1) – New beginnings, gifts, manifesting, the essence of a suit.
· 2 – Balance, partnership, duality, choices, union, spiritual connection, you and yourself.
· 3 – Expansion, groups of people, fertility, creativity, (team)work, growth.
· 4 – Structure and foundations.
· 5 – Change, conflict, shock, testing faith and challenges.
· 6 – Alignment, harmony, help.
· 7 – Reflecting, daydreaming, an inner crisis, stubborn ideas.
· 8 – Mastery of skill, life-goals, rebirth, escaping a cycle, protection, obsession.
· 9 – Transition period, attainment, satisfaction or dissatisfaction, aftermath.
· 10 – End of a cycle, whether bitter or sweet.
Add these numerological meanings to a suit, and you get your Minor Arcana cards meanings.
A Two of Cups is thus an emotional union of some kind, be it lovers, friendship, or business partners who have great chemistry. The Seven of Pentacles is thus your reflection on what it is you are doing with your life, how you make ends meet, and is this all there is to your physical manifestation.
Numerology and Tarot Card Reading
After you’re done tarot readings your spread normally, you can look into repeating patterns and symbols for an extra layer of detail. Again, what does it mean when three fours show up in your tarot spread?
My simple formula for numerology in tarot is this:
Number of cards eg. 3: The stage of your subject, topic or message.
Card numbers eg. 8: The subject, topic or message itself
Let’s company three fours, and four threes. The fours in tarot talk about structure and foundation. Threes often talk about the building of something. Ergo, you are putting in a lot of work, maybe even physical, to reach that stability.
Numerology: 3 (Working towards) Fours (stability).
The other way around, your subject like is not stability, but growth. What is the stage of your growth? It has reached stability and foundation because there are four threes! Meaning, for example, a high-level promotion, recognition, maybe even fame.
Numerology: 4 (Achieving stability) Three (thanks to growth and/or teamwork).
Tarot cards and numerological life
Another neat trick about numerology and tarot connection is… mathematics!
Numerology adds double, triple, multiple digits to get down to its basic number. You can think of 10, too, as being 1+0, which equals 1, or a new beginning, thus the start of a new cycle.
However, I would not add court tarot cards (11, 12, 13, 14) in that way. Because court cards aren’t technically the continuation of the 1-10 progression. They are their own separate category within the Minor Arcana card, denoting not the spiritual journey of the element, but rather personality traits. As such, let’s look at the Pages, Knights, Queens and Kings as 1, 2, 3 and 4.
· Pages – (1) The essence of a suit, young, naive, inexperienced, eager.
· Knights – (2) The fluctuating duality of the suit, like a teenager, making choices.
· Queens – (3) The spiritual essence of the suit, cultivating its nature with others.
· Kings – (4) The stable manifestation of the suit, its mastery and control.
Interpret these within your suit, and there you have it. The King of Cups is mastery of your emotions, a person who is able to consider both their heart and logic. The Knight of Swords is someone who is talented with words but at the same time lacks tact or empathy, or uses them solely for their own benefit.
You can think of The Queen of Pentacles and Three of Cups as two threes!
For instance; the duality (2) of growth (3), wherein something you’ve been building has been interrupted, but it either made you stronger, or you barely even noticed because you have other, evolved priorities.
The Numbers In The Major Arcana
Remember adding double digits? Well, this is where it comes into play in your Major Arcana. What are the Major Arcana card numbers?
Up until the Wheel of Fortune (10) everything is in line with the above meanings.
The Emperor (4), similar to a King (4), represents structure. The Hermit (9) is a transitional period, and so forth.
Numerology and tarot are really intertwined. When you apply both methods correctly, you can interpret messages correctly, make tarot reading correctly.
Then trust the power of numbers and the symbols that come your way!
