TAROT AND NUMEROLOGY




Welcome to The Divination Nation blog!
 We are Pleasant Gehman and Crystal Ravenwolf, a duo of divination divas, “spiritual sisters from another mister”. We’re life-long Tarotistas, obsessed with all things esoteric and paranormal. Look for our forthcoming book, “Walking The Tarot Path”  in Summer, 2017.
 We’ve created this blog to share our knowledge and to connect with the vibrant worldwide metaphysical and paranormal community. We hope it’s as fun for you to read as it is for us to write…Enjoy!


Once you start getting familiar with Tarot, you’ll  realize what a multi-layered system it is. Eventually, you’ll want to dive a little deeper , and really start exploring  all the things that  are  happening on every card face. One of the easiest  correlations to look into – at least initially- are the numbers of the cards themselves. Each number is there for a reason…and once you grasp the foundations of numerology,  you’ll realize just how much  the numbers add to each card.

There are 78 cards in a standard Tarot deck, and 62 of them are numbered. The numbers assigned to each of the cards are patterned on the basic tenets of numerology, a divinatory or occult science, which assigns traits and characteristics to numbers.  In the context of interpreting the Tarot, these numbers can provide insight on the various aspects of each card, so a simple familiarity with numerology is a boon to readers of any level…even absolute beginners.

 Depending on how deep you want to go, these numerological impressions can be applied to interpret a single card or  to the reading as a whole. For example, many readers look at the numbers to provide a timeline for a certain situation, with lesser digits suggesting a more immediate course of action. Another illustration could be the predominance of a certain number in a layout. The qualities assigned to that particular number could be used to determine the underlying feeling or flavor of the whole reading.

Let’s start by breaking down the Minor Arcana in terms of numerology.

The four suits of the Minor Arcana- Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles, add up to 56 cards total. Each of the suits contains 4 Court Cards: a King, Queen, Knight and Page. Though these 16 Court Cards are not numbered, the remaining 40 cards all have a numerical association. These cards, sometimes known as “pips” or  “pip cards” are numbered 1 through 10, and like standard playing cards, the first card in each suit is an Ace.

 Understanding the unique traits of the numbers will help you to make association with the divinatory meaning of each card.

 To get you started, here are some key concepts for each number:

1.  (Aces) Potential, opportunities, ambition, dominance, a new beginning

2.  Balance, duality, unions, partnership, relationships

3. Growth, expansion, creativity, groups, realization of goals

4. Stability, structure, manifestation, progress, foundations

5. Changes, conflicts, instability, chaotic events, ups and downs

6.  Harmony, healing, communication, balance, solutions

7.  Wisdom, knowledge, spirituality, assessment, choices

8. Manifestation, business, leadership, mastery, accomplishments

9.  Fruition, fulfillment, attainment, compassion, courage

10.  Completion, results, renewal, recognition, endings

 Moving on to the Major Arcana, each of the 22 cards are assigned numbers, too-and you guessed it- every card has a specific numerological correlation.  They start at 0 (zero) with The Fool and end with 21, The World.  But since many of the Majors have been assigned double-digit numbers, simply   reduce them. This is done by adding the digits together so they can be interpreted as a single digit number.

As an example, The World is the twenty first card. 2 +1=3.

 So, 3 becomes the numerical value of The World. Among other things, the number 3 signifies expansion and growth… which could easily be shorthand for The World… As in “the world is your oyster”!

Try it with some of the other cards of each Arcanum and you’ll notice how much sense the numbers make with each card. Actually, it’s tons of fun once you get the hang of it…Not even close to being as brain-breaking as you thought, right?

      What if I told you that you hold the universal power to anticipate life-altering encounters with strangers... tap into your unlimited abundance frequency… predict upcoming challenges and lucrative opportunities... and make sense of the mind-blowing ‘coincidences’ and chain reactions that alter the very course of your life path…

      How? You might be wondering...

      With the ancient science of Numerology.

      You’d be amazed at the shockingly accurate and revealing information that can be deciphered from nothing more than your name and date of birth.

      But don’t take my word for it.

      Now, if you’re wondering what in the world this has to do with the Law of Attraction, there’s something you should know.

      Manifestation accelerates your success, but Numerology points you in the right direction.

      See, many people seem to believe that as long as they focus on what they want, it will magically appear – even if they don’t know what that is.

      Unfortunately, these misguided folks are missing out on a whole bunch of lucrative opportunities already being scooped up by those who understand the power of Numerology.

      Think of it this way: if the Law of Attraction is the wind in your sales, your numerological profile is the compass that shows you how to reach your ideal life…

      When the two line up - there’ll be no stopping you.

      So, while the Law of Attraction most definitely influences your fate, ultimately, you are the one responsible for creating your dream life and I want to give you every possible tool to point you in the right direction.

      That’s why I’m inviting you to >>> Grab your free personalized Numerology Reading

      Numerology combined with the Law of Attraction will be your secret weapon for living a breakthrough life… all I ask is that you please use this new found power with responsibility and good judgment.

      Here’s to the life you deserve,
