Tarot by Numbers: A Fast and Simple Way to Learn the Cards with Numerology

tarot-by-numbers-a-fast-and-simple-way-to-learn-the-cards-with-numerology

Have you ever wanted to learn to read Tarot, but were put off by having to memorise the 78 Tarot card meanings?!

What if I was to tell you that with just one simple technique, you could be reading Tarot faster than you can say “High Priestess”?

Here’s the secret. If you can learn the basics of what the numbers 1 to 10 mean, then you’ve got a head start with reading the Tarot cards.

Yes – for real!

You see, Tarot and numerology go hand-in-hand. Let me show you how.

The Numbers in the Minor Arcana

There are 56 Minor Arcana cards in the Tarot deck – 40 numbered cards and 16 Court Cards.

The 40 numbered cards are separated into 4 Suits – Cups, Pentacles, Swords and Wands, with each Suit running from Ace (1) to 10.

An easy way to get to know the 40 numbered cards of the Tarot is to learn basic numerology.

Here are a few keywords to get you started:

  1. (Aces) New beginnings, opportunity, potential
  2. Balance, partnership, duality
  3. Creativity, groups, growth
  4. Structure, stability, manifestation
  5. Change, instability, conflict
  6. Communication, cooperation, harmony
  7. Reflection, assessment, knowledge
  8. Mastery, action, accomplishment
  9. Fruition, attainment, fulfilment
  10. Completion, end of a cycle, renewal

It also helps to know a little about each of the Suits in the Tarot:

  • Cups (element = water): Emotions, creativity, intuition, relationships
  • Pentacles (element = earth): Material wealth, money, career, manifestation
  • Swords (element = air): Communication, truth, intellect, thoughts
  • Wands (element = fire): Inspiration, energy, enthusiasm

Now, combine what you know about the numbers and what you know about the Suits, and you’ll be able to determine what each of the 40 numbered cards mean.

For example, the Five of Cups is about conflict (5) in love and relationships (Cups).

And Four of Pentacles is about stability (4) in finances (Pentacles).

See – I told you it would be easy!

Now, you might be wondering how to interpret the 16 Court Cards with numerology. Well, it isn’t quite as straight-forward because the Court Cards don’t traditionally have a numerological association. 

For now, let’s jump into the Major Arcana cards.

The Numbers in the Major Arcana

You can apply the same ‘Tarot by numbers’ technique for the 22 cards of the Major Arcana.

The Fool is the first card, but starts at 0, and the final card is the World (21).

Each card in between the Fool and the World has its own numerological association which means that you can apply what you know about the numbers to the Major Arcana Tarot cards.

You don’t have to know double-digit numerology either. For now, keep it simple and add together the numbers to interpret the single number.

For example, the Tower is Card 16 and 1 + 6 = 7. 7 is about assessment and evaluation – an important aspect of the Tower card. Of course, there’s a little more to the Tower card than just assessment and evaluation, but knowing the basic numerology certainly gives you a start in the right direction.

While single-digit numerology can be helpful, it can also help to understand the meanings of the numbers up until 21 to add extra depth to your Tarot card interpretations.

For example, Death is Card 13 and both Death and the number 13 relate to upheaval. 13 is also a Karmic Debt Number – a sign that we need to learn a life lesson in order to evolve spiritually.

So there you have it – you now have a simple and easy way to interpret the Tarot cards using basic numerology as your guide!

  • What Is Tarot Astrology? Open or Close
    tarot_astrology

    Tarot astrology is the system through which a reading of the cards in a tarot deck help you through troubled times by offering a reflection on your past, present and future. Tarot is closely associated with astrology as each card relates to a planet, element, or astrological sign.

    Tarot cards are used for divination, often known as fortune telling. But, many psychologists have used them as well, feeling that the cards often make patients delve in to how they feel about themselves. This is done through the subconscious. For example, let’s say you know work is not going well, but you do not allow yourself to think about it. Getting a tarot card reading that shows you need to change occupations is not really telling your future so much as it is making you face what is really going on in your life.

    The Tarot

    The Tarot (pronounced tair-row) is a combination of teachings that reflect the aspects of life, a symbolic "book of life" in the form of pictures that can be read or meditated on from "cover to cover". It can also be opened randomly for insights to issues. As a source of information, it is actually a channel by which pictures bring the situation to light and explain what caused it to occur. Those same pictures depict how the situation is being played out as well as the predicted outcome when placed in "spreads" of various patterns. That outcome will be in accordance to the choices that have currently been made by the client as well as outside influences which they have little or no control over. The Querrent (person asking the question), needs to be informed of this so they understand that they have free will and can apply it if they so choose. The Tarot is informative, enlightening, and it's accurate.

    The Tarot's history is veiled in the mists of time, surrounded by myths and legends, superstition, and diverse speculation. It speaks a language that is born of the universal collective mind through archetypes and symbols that range across the boundaries of astrology, numerology, mystical wisdom, religious teachings, and other psychic sciences. There are many stories as to its origin. Some say that the Tarot came from the Hierophants (priests of the Eleusinian Mysteries), the Gypsies, the Egyptians, the Jews, the Chinese, from India, the Hebrew Kabbalistic teachings, on and on. These teachings were handed down as the Major Arcana; cards representing the outside influences of one's life that remained out of the individual's control, alongside the Minor Arcana representing the individual and influences within daily life over which they did have control.

  • The Tarot: An Intuitive Health Tool Open or Close

    Tarot DeckTeacher: Peter Phalam

    When I began reading the Tarot Decks back in 1973, I used the traditional readings. Later on, I studied Carl Jung and his analysis of using Tarot for the study of emotional and mental problems. The many students in my area were using the Major Arcana of Tarot Cards to do the analysis. After many years, I have finally discovered a mannerism to use the entire Tarot Deck for the ‘Healing Intuitive Reading’. In this reading, we examine five planes of health in a being. The heart and blood, the liver, pancreas, adrenals and kidneys, thymus, immune system and finally, the brain, are examined.

    September Tarot Videos (All Signs)

    Hello Lovelies!

    Spiritually, Mentally, Emotionally, and definitely physically, I am exhausted. I know that much of what I’m experiencing right now are the symptoms of transformation, but I also know that some of it is the Mars in Aries transit motivating me beyond my comfort zones and so I am trying to persist while seeking to incorporate a balance between work, play and rest.

    This message is so plain, that I literally can see nothing else but it. “GET OUT OF YOUR FEELINGS AND INTO YOUR BAG!” (To Self)

    All of us are guided by the cards today to seek clarity and speak directly. Our foundations depend on our willingness to step outside the stories we tell ourselves to soothe our wounded egos to take practical, decisive, steps when it comes to expressing our sense of self worth and build secure and long lasting structures to sustain us independently of what has or is occuring around us.
